If you have driven across the state border for a weekend away or a work event, you may have gone out for what you thought were a few harmless drinks before driving to your Colorado accommodation.

Fall is in the air. Football games are being played, the baseball season is coming to an end and fall festivals are occurring all over the state.

Every day, an average of 60 people in Colorado find themselves in need of a criminal defense attorney related to some sort of intoxication from an impairing substance.

One 25-year-old man is currently facing serious charges in relation to alleged drunk driving that resulted in the death of a teenage boy.
