Ciminial Law


Facing criminal charges can be as distressing as it may be devastating, especially when people may be accused of serious felony crimes. While being in the crosshairs of the criminal justice system should be a matter of great concern, the good news is that people accused of crimes:

  • Are presumed innocent until proven guilty

  • Will get the chance to defend themselves against the allegations they are facing
  • Will have the best chances of favorably resolving their criminal cases by retaining an experienced defense attorney like one of the Pueblo criminal defense attorneys at Gradisar, Trechter, Ripperger & Roth.

With more than four decades of experience representing clients in Pueblo and in neighboring areas (including in Trinidad and throughout Las Animas County).

  • Will work relentlessly to help our clients mount the strongest possible defense throughout the course of their case
  • Have the experience, integrity and skills necessary to help the accused obtain the best possible outcomes to their criminal cases.
