Defense Attorney for DUI's and Traffic Matters
The Law Firm of Mark S. Hanchey has helped thousands of clients navigate successfully through the often changing and turbulent waters of Colorado’s DUI and traffic laws. A DUI conviction can be devastating for a Colorado citizen for many reasons. Even a first conviction can carry with it mandatory jail while subsequent convictions frequently involve months in jail. Those sentences may or may not allow for work release. Although characterized as a traffic misdemeanor, Driving Under the Influence and Driving While Ability Impaired by Alcohol or Drugs will show up on a person’s criminal history. Such criminal entries can cripple one’s employment and educational opportunities.
The Department of Motor Vehicles will also get involved due to a DUI allegation and it has the power to strip the Defendant’s Driver’s License from them for up to a full year for a first offense. A fairly recent change in Colorado law erased the old “red license” which allowed for a Defendant to continue limited driving to and from work or school despite having their license revoked due to a DUI investigation. Thus, one’s ability to get to and from school or simply to run those errands necessary to get by in today’s modern world can be hugely impacted by a DUI allegation not only due to the involvement from the Court but the inevitable involvement from the Department of Motor Vehicles as well.
For these reasons, the Law Firm of Mark S. Hanchey has dedicated itself to the aggressive defense of DUI’s for over two and a half decades. Mr. Hanchey has successfully represented hundreds of individuals charged with alcohol or drug related driving offenses. We also commonly represent clients across the entire spectrum of traffic law to involve allegations of Driving Under Restraint, Reckless Driving, Careless Driving, Careless Driving Causing Injury or Death, as well as simple Speeding tickets.
The Law Firm of Mark S. Hanchey is also very experienced in representing Juvenile clients on issues involving matters specific to those under the age of 18.Go Back
