Legal Answers
Q. Do i need a lawyer everytime iam in front of the judge
A: The quick answer is no - depending on the case the judge will always give you an opportunity to locate and retain a lawyer or to apply for a public defender (free court appointed lawyer) if you qualify. Colorado judges are well known for their compassion and understanding and their patience, especially in these difficult times, to find appropriate legal representation. Best HMS
Q. What do i need to if i get called by a detective in a case about myself?
A: This is a question that is asked often - NEVER EVER EVER call the Detective back without consulting with a criminal defense lawyer. If the officer reaches you - tell him or her you want a lawyer and will have the lawyer call that officer back after you have had a consultation. Don't even ask what the matter is about - it may cause you to start a conversation that may introduce facts that will later be used against you in a criminal case. This approach will feel clearly unnatural to you and counter intuitive - but it is critical that you protect yourself from your own need to "tell your side of the story." Trust me.
Q. Is it criminal impersonation when its your own name just not in the right order
A: I agree - if you intentionally reverse your names with the intent to fool law enforcement and to gain an advantage - e.g. escape a ticket - it could be charged as criminal impersonation. Tough to prove though on the part of the prosecutor so "probably" won't be filed. Other issues are phony dob - phony address - etc. Best
