PRACTICE AREAS OVERVIEW

The Law Office of Stephen Wells

Silverton, Colorado Felony Criminal Defense Attorney and Personal Injury Lawyer

The Law Office of Stephen Wells

I am admitted to practice at the federal level and in tribal courts as well as the Colorado State courts. Throughout the areas of the law I practice, I provide my clients with high-quality, aggressive, and affordable legal representation. At the Law Office of Stephen Wells, we are not interested in judging our clients, but in protecting their rights and interests. Working with investigators and forensic experts of our own, my office has the resources needed to challenge the prosecution's case and expose law enforcement's failure to pursue alternative leads and suspects. As a criminal defense lawyer, I am committed to making the law work for my clients instead of against them - that means making sure they receive a fair trial and understand the options available to them.

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, contact the Law Office of Stephen Wells today. I am available for weekend and evening appointments if you are unable to meet during regular office hours. All consultations are completely confidential.

What We Do for Our Clients

I focus my efforts in the following areas:

Criminal Defense
Criminal charges can be especially serious and a conviction can follow you for a very long way. I represent both juveniles and adults facing misdemeanor or felony charges and have successfully defended people in matters that involve theft, burglary, other property crimes, controlled substances, criminal misconduct, and many, many others.

The rights of the defendant in criminal matters can all too easily and often be trampled and you need a vigilant lawyer with the experience to make sure that does not happen to you. No matter what the circumstances are in your individual case, you need an attorney at your side that will vigorously fight for your interests. I do not judge; I leave that to others while I help you to put your best foot forward.

DUI / DWAI and Drug Charges
Any type of DUI charge carries severe burdens along with it. A conviction may result in the loss or suspension of your license, expensive court costs and fines, steep rises in insurance premiums, and may even prevent you from being considered for certain job opportunities in the future. But you may have a defense.

Many factors can have an effect on your individual case. An experienced and aggressive Colorado DUI lawyer fighting for your rights can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.

I also handle drug cases involving the distribution, possession, sale or trafficking of illegal narcotics and substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, exstacy and many others.

Personal Injury and Motor Vehicle Accidents
Few things can be more tragic than having a loved one taken away from you because of somebody else's negligent or indifferent actions. Even when there is no loss of life, the physical pain and suffering, the economic loss, the emotional turbulence, and the long-term effects on a person's health can be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to deal with.

My 30 years of experience serving plaintiffs in personal injury cases have taught me how to fight the insurance companies effectively. I thoroughly and assertively investigate each case that comes to me to discover all of the parties that may bear responsibility in your case. Many times there is more than one.

If you have a legal concern regarding DUI charges, criminal charges, or a personal injury claim, please contact me at my Durango, Colorado office to discuss your situation in more detail.
