Top Attorney in Colorado with 30 Years of Experience
When the government starts to interact with your life, choosing the right attorney is critical. The key is to remember that you have a right to counsel, a right to a jury trial and to cross-examine the witnesses against you. Too often, a defendant in a criminal case simply takes the offered plea-bargain – without consideration of other options. Gary D. Fielder is a seasoned and practiced trial attorney, and has conducted over 400 jury trials in federal and state courts all over Colorado.
“You can’t take every case to the jury, and you can’t win every case you try. But you have to fight. The prosecution has the burden of proof and it’s your life – why settle? In today’s world, with our criminal histories a mouse click away, getting the best possible deal is paramount. But the only way to do that is to get a trial attorney.”
