Dedicated Legal Advocacy When It Matters Most
The Stakes Are High
Sex offenses involve serious penalties, potentially including decades in prison, hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, and the requirement to register as a sex offender. Besides the criminal penalties, being found guilty of a sex crime can ruin your friendships, eliminate your parenting rights, and make it nearly impossible to find a job.
The Law is Difficult
Successfully defending against sex crime charges requires an advanced understanding of Colorado criminal law and a willingness to gain a complete understanding of the case. Most public defenders won't take the time to understand the nuances of your situation and build a viable criminal defense strategy. Instead, they may take the easy way out and advise you to plead guilty, which could forever alter your life.
We Can Help
The Dadvocates is Colorado's only law firm focused on men's rights in criminal defense cases. Our dedicated defense attorneys can review your case, represent you in court, and protect your rights. We understand the challenges that men (and especially fathers) face when accused of sex offenses, and we go above and beyond to make sure the wrongfully accused maintain their freedom.
Sex Crime Charges Are Serious But They're Not Unbeatable
All types of sex offenses in Colorado, from indecent exposure to sexual assault, carry extreme penalties. To avoid significant prison time and the lifelong label of "sex offender," men accused of sex crimes should hire proven criminal defense lawyers who understand the law and know how to build a convincing case.
After reviewing your case, our sex crimes lawyers may take any of several approaches to your defense, including:
The nature of most sex offenses makes these types of cases heavily dependent on testimony from the accused, the accuser, and other relevant witnesses. When accusations are totally fictional, our sex crimes lawyers serving clients throughout Colorado can combine testimonies and evidence to prove that the crime could never have taken place.
Disputing Lack of Consent
Often, questions of consent are central to accusations of sexual assault, sexual battery, or unlawful sexual contact. Our lawyers know how to successfully argue that any contact that occurred was consensual, or that the accused was reasonably unable to know that the accuser did not consent or could not have granted consent.
Physical evidence can be key in a Colorado sex crime case. However, forensic tools like rape kits are imperfect, and DNA evidence can be misleading in circumstances where the accused and the accuser are in a relationship. Our sex crimes attorneys can make sure any evidence introduced in a case is legitimate and properly handled.
I called Dadvocates to find legal advice about a particular sensitive situation I was dealing with. I don't typically like calling law firms because I find they provide minimal advice while running up my tab. But in this case, Jason and Kaitlyn really helped me out.... These two attorneys are very professional and I really believe they have their clients' best interest in mind.

Unfortunately, false accusations of sex offenses are sometimes made by spouses, ex-spouses, or co-parents in order to prevent a father from having a role in his children's lives.

We Are Proud to Serve Dads Real 5-Star Reviews
The Dadvocates is one of the most professional and results oriented law firms that I have encountered - highly recommend. I personally worked with Danielle and she exceeded expectations at every moment of my difficult case. I walked away in a position that, without Danielle and the Dadvocates, I would not have been able to achieve. The Dadvocates is a high Return on Investment law firm.
Danielle did an excellent job on my case. She was very hard working, responsive, and always willing to explain things that I was uncertain of/unclear about. I would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for high caliber representation.
