Law enforcement is overburdened with heavy call volume and Increasing demands for their time. Officers and detectives frequently do not have the time, training, or resources to thoroughly investigate a case before making the decision to issue a ticket or file the case with the DA's office.
As former police detectives we are familiar with rules of evidence, search and seizure, and normal police procedures. We understand the complicated dynamics of criminal cases and will work with the attorney to identify areas of the case to be explored and crucial witnesses to be interviewed.
At Carlson Investigation Services we pride ourselves on thorough investigation; locating witnesses the police may have missed, re-interviewing other witnesses and reviewing police reports and evidence to get a complete picture of the background and all circumstances surrounding a particular incident. Our investigations have lead to the dismissal of felony cases.
Our experience as police detectives includes all types of major persons crimes, complex white collar crimes, and manufacturing and possession of narcotics cases.
Some of the criminal defense cases we have been involved in include:
- Vehicular Homicide
- Attempted Murder
- Colorado Organized Crime Control Act (COCCA)
- Aggravated Robbery
- Aggravated Assault
- Child Abuse
- Sexual Assault on a Child
- Sexual Assault - Use of Force
- Sexual Assault - Victim Incapable of Appraising Condition
- Pandering of a Child
- Securities Fraud
- Manufacturing and Distribution of a Controlled Substance
- Driving Under the Influence
- Domestic Violence
- Hit and Run
- Forgery and other financial crimes
If requested we can provide mitigation research packets for the sentencing phase and we have participated in sentence reconsideration cases.
