Accomplished Colorado Attorney Defends Clients Accused of Crimes

Denver lawyer has more than two decades of criminal litigation experience

From the moment you’re arrested, powerful authorities are working to build a case for conviction. Though you have a fundamental right to a fair trial, it takes a skillful criminal defense advocate to secure the fair treatment you deserve. At Kraynak Law in Denver, attorney Mark Kraynak has more than 20 years of experience providing exceptional legal representation to a diverse group of clients facing criminal charges. Whether you are accused of a felony or misdemeanor, my firm will confront police, prosecutors and adverse witnesses on your behalf. I understand what’s at stake and arm you with the knowledgeable advice you need to make the best decisions possible regarding your defense.

Proven advocate handles a full range of felony matters

A felony charge, no matter the outcome, can affect your life and the lives of your family members for years to come. And if you are convicted, in addition to facing a prison sentence, your ability to live and work as you wish will be compromised forever. With so much to lose, you need an advocate who can deliver successful results in felony cases arising from allegations such as:

  • Murder — Cases involving the death of another person demand strong defense counsel. For clients facing murder, manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide charges, I provide comprehensive legal support.
  • Aggravated assault — First- and second-degree assault are felony charges that can be punished by up to 24 years in prison. Whether the case involves accusations of serious bodily injury or the use of a deadly weapon, my firm will vigorously assert all available defenses.
  • Robbery — Theft that includes the use or threat of force can be a Class 2, 3 or 4 felony depending on the specific circumstances. I understand that the elements of this crime can be subjective, so I work to find flaws in charging decisions and prosecution arguments.

Waiting to get the legal help you need might do irreversible damage to your case. My firm offers a free initial consultation to help you protect your rights immediately.

Tough lawyer provides a thorough defense against drug allegations

The legalization of recreational marijuana use within the state should not be misconstrued as an overall weakening of Colorado drug laws. Possession of most other controlled substances is a felony. Even a pot charge can lead to a serious penalty if the amount or activity involved does not fall within strict guidelines. In cases involving alleged sale, trafficking or manufacture, the sentences can last for years and even decades. Whether the charge relates to opiates such as heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamines or even the unlawful use of prescription drugs, my firm confronts the questionable searches and tactics often used by law enforcement to build cases against potential drug offenders. When circumstances warrant, I am a committed advocate for positive alternatives to incarceration such as substance abuse treatment.

Established law firm works to oppose sexual offense charges

Sexual offenses are extremely serious matters that can trigger decades in prison and other sanctions, such as being named in Colorado’s sex offender registry. If you have been charged with sexual assault, possession of unlawful pornographic material or another type of sex crime, my firm will work tirelessly to protect your rights and reputation. Many cases hinge on a lawyer’s ability to find the truth when witnesses disagree over factual issues or questions of consent. I have the skill and experience to overcome prejudicial allegations and present a powerful defense.

Skillful attorney assists motorists arrested for alleged drunk driving

Colorado law includes two types of charges relating to motorists who operate a vehicle after having consumed alcohol or drugs. Driving under the influence (DUI) is the more serious allegation and requires a blood alcohol concentration of at least .08 percent for motorists 21 or older. By comparison, driving while ability impaired (DWAI) covers situations where someone operating a vehicle is slightly affected. Each count carries some jail time in addition to a license suspension and possible fines. Even if you have tested over the legal intoxication limit, my firm can investigate various potential defenses, including improper stops and flawed testing methods.
