personalized attention and proven results

To be an effective criminal defense counsel, an attorney must be prepared to be demanding, outrageous, irreverent, blasphemous, a rogue, a renegade, and a hated, isolated, and lonely person - few love a spokesman for the despised and the damned.

Frequently Asked Questions


Bruno Lilly Legal
  • Can I Contact a Lawyer on Behalf of Someone Else Who is Facing Criminal Charges? We understand how difficult it can be to face criminal charges alone. You may not know where to turn, who to call, or what you can or cannot do. Our firm often has family and friends contact us on behalf of those facing criminal charges in Northern Colorado. We gladly accept calls and contact submissions on behalf of others who may be in need of legal assistance in or near Greeley. We offer free initial case consultations to help you understand all your available legal options.
  • Should I Talk to Law Enforcement If I’m Being Investigated For or Have Been Charged With a Crime? Law enforcement often want to interview those they have accused of committing crimes. Sometimes, they try to get those they have accused to admit guilt. While you should be cooperative with law enforcement to avoid any additional charges, if police want to interview you and discuss an incident, you should ask to speak with an attorney prior to that meeting. You may also have an attorney present at the time of questioning. Working with a Northern Colorado criminal defense lawyer during this seemingly harmless interview can help ensure you answer questions properly and are not being harassed or treated unfairly.
  • What Is a "Discovery" and How Can I Obtain Mine?The discovery process is when a criminal attorney will obtain the evidence the prosecution has gathered. This evidence may include anything from witness statements, police reports and records, and other relevant information about the case. You can work with your criminal defense lawyer to gather this information.
  • What Crimes Can't Be Sealed? Many crimes are eligible to be sealed in Colorado and many are not. Class 1 and 2 felonies, level 1 drug felonies, violent crimes, unlawful sexual behavior-related crimes, class 1 and 2 misdemeanor traffic offenses, DUIs and DWAIs, class A and B traffic violations or infractions, crimes involving extraordinary aggravating circumstances and risk are some of the many crimes cannot be sealed in Colorado. However, Governor Jared Polis recently signed the Clean Slate Act into law. This law allows arrest records that did not result in a conviction and certain older criminal records to be automatically sealed. To learn more about this law and how you could be affected by it, contact our firm today.
  • What If I Wasn’t Read My Miranda Rights When I Was Arrested? Can My Case Be Dismissed? An officer not reading your Miranda Rights when you were arrested does not guarantee your case will be dismissed. These rights being read and explained to you are to protect your Fifth Amendment right to refuse to answer any self-incriminating questions. If an officer fails to read you these rights and proceeds to question you, the court may find any findings as a result of that questioning unlawful. If you are unsure if your Miranda Rights were read or explained properly to you, our criminal defense attorney in Greeley can help.
  • Do I Need a Defense Lawyer If I’m Innocent?While it can be done, it can be very difficult to prove your innocence on your own. Law enforcement, the prosecution, and other authorities may use all their resources to try and prove you are guilty. To ensure your rights are protected and your innocense is ensured, feel free to consult our firm. We offer free initial case consultations and can help you understand what your situation entails and the best way you can navigate the justice system.
