Why Hire A Criminal Defense Lawyer?

One of the cornerstones of our criminal justice system is the idea that everyone who is accused of a crime has the right to a defense. Stemming from that principle is the right to a defense attorney. Those who cannot afford an attorney can choose to have the court appoint one for them. These court-appointed criminal defense lawyers are commonly known as public defenders.

There are many excellent public defenders doing incredible work under difficult conditions. The highly respected attorney Richard A. Hostetler began his career as a public defender in the 1970s, representing people accused of all kinds of crimes, defending their rights and protecting their futures.

He still shows that kind of dedication today when representing clients with the Law Firm of Richard A. Hostetler, but the cases are different. Our firm helps people in state and federal courts with cases that require experience and skills that are different from most criminal cases.

When You Need Experienced Representation

Our firm helps people in Denver, Colorado, and throughout the surrounding area with complex legal issues such as:

  • White collar crimes
  • Drug crimes
  • Murder
  • Jury trial
  • State appeals
  • Federal appeals
  • Post-conviction relief

When representing clients, Mr. Hostetler takes a long view. With decades of experience behind him, he knows that a hearing or a trial don't represent the end of the line for someone who has been accused of a crime. Sometimes a client will have better success the second time around, but only if a good lawyer lays the groundwork for appeal. You can read more about appeals on our criminal appeals FAQ page.

When arguing cases on appeal, Mr. Hostetler's deep knowledge of the law and criminal procedure gives him insight into the best ways to defend his clients and protect their futures.
