Law always upholds the rights of a child and gives the child’s welfare the top most priority in child abuse cases. Taking this as an advantage, there are cases where a person might be wrongly accused of committing the crime of abusing a child in order to seek revenge or for any other bad intentions. The impact of being called a -child abuser’ is unspeakable and unbearable. A lot of divorced people find this as the best way to make the other person look bad and have the custody over the child or children. The accuser always has an upper hand in such situations and the defendant needs a strong, very strong defense attorney in Denver to falsify the accused claims and have a clean criminal history. Here are the three most important qualities of a good child abuse defense attorney in Denver to defend your case.
Child abuse cases escalate from a minor criminal case to a big controversy and exhausting case within a short span. For a defendant in such cases, every minute from the moment the case was filed is crucial. Though the charges against you aren’t even investigated and you are just a convict, you are instantly seen as a -child abuser’ and your chances of getting rid of this title grow thin day by day. A good attorney won’t waste time for the prosecutor’s or the investigation’s response and takes a keen personal interest in your case to take rapid actions. The most important factor here is your attorney, believing your innocence and taking every step for a quick litigation. Through litigation a compromise can be brought between you and the accuser by some sort of adjustment and save you the embarrassment of being dragged into this mess. Suppose, if this doesn’t work out, the attorney has to gather all the resources as quickly as he can, proof to falsify the evidence the prosecutor might produce and prepare you thoroughly for the first hearing. It is always important that a Denver child abuse defense attorney makes an impressive argument in the first hearing and show how determined the defendant is to prove his/her innocence.
This is another quality a good defense attorney must and should possess-aggressiveness. Right from the moment the case is filed; the society, the police, the accuser and the prosecutor stand against you and decide to bring you down at any cost. Your Denver defense attorney is your only savior and has to shield you from all these obstacles like a warrior in a battlefield (and that is no exaggeration). Your attorney has to strategize consistently for a strong, aggressive defense and needs to have a -never back down’ attitude until the end of the case. Even if you might give up hopes on your trial, a good attorney would never do that. Instead, he/she would fill confidence in you and make you realize constantly that you are innocent and you have to defend yourself and not give up. It is not easy being called -defendant of the child abuser’ and your attorney must have the heart to face the people and the law.
You must ensure that your child abuse defense attorney has a great experience and an excellent track record of winning such cases in the Colorado courts. Only an experienced attorney can have good links with nationalized forensic trial experts and evidence review experts. A good attorney knows that he can’t win the case alone without the help of these experts. They will help him/her in understanding the case better and roll out a strong, aggressive defense to show that the accusations are false and the case be immediately dropped. Many a times though the defendant wins the case, custody of the child or children wouldn’t be granted and the victory doesn’t seem fruitful. An experienced attorney would fight till the last moment for the custody of the child.
Finally, a good child abuse defense attorney in Denver will always worry about the child and urges the jury to quickly resolve the case and reduce the emotional burden on the child.
