Patterson Weaver is an accomplished trial attorney and former felony prosecutor with the experience to effectively fight for your rights in court. Formerly a tough prosecutor, Patterson Weaver now dedicates himself to defending the accused against charges such as driving under the influence (DUI), driving under restraint, domestic violence, assault, menacing, harassment, child abuse, Crime of Violence felonies, as well as most other misdemeanors and felonies.
For most people, being charged with a criminal offense is a frightening and intimidating experience. A criminal conviction can have severe and unexpected consequences upon your life and career. In fact, in the Colorado Springs area, the consequences can be even more severe for the large number of people with military careers or civilian jobs that require security clearances, as many charges can trigger the Lautenberg Amendment and the Brady Bill. It is important that you hire a competent criminal defense lawyer early in the process to help you get the best resolution possible for your situation. We will take the time to review your case, listen to your concerns, explain the process and your rights, and help you through each step as your case progresses through the courts.
In fact, we represent our criminal clients with a focus on a simple, but critical, group of core principles: 1) comprehensive case analysis and research; 2) helpful and straightforward explanation of the legal process; 3) honest assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you and your options; 4) responsive communication; 5) effective negotiation; and 6) aggressive and experienced trial defense.Thorough Estate Planning with Foresight
Patterson Weaver has a passion for helping people protect their families from the unexpected future. Although no-one wants to talk about it, it is inevitable that we will, sooner or later, depart this life and leave loved ones behind. When that happens, the last gift you can give them is to pass your wealth and legacy to them in as painless a manner as possible.
We can help you prepare for the inevitable. An estate plan from Patterson Weaver Law will anticipate potential estate tax (death tax) repercussions, passing as much of your wealth as possible to your heirs rather than the federal government. It will also be thorough, helping you communicate your wishes to your family should you become incapacitated or terminally ill, as well as planning for who will handle your affairs while you are incapacitated.
