McDermott Stuart & Ward LLP is pleased to announce that partner Tom Ward has successfully secured an acquittal for a client charged with child abuse in Aspen, Colorado.
The client’s life was turned upside down by this unfair accusation and proud of the dedication and hard work that Tom put into the case to secure the acquittal.
Colorado Child Abuse Defense
Allegations of child abuse are among the gravest and most difficult to defend. Defendants are faced with not only the stress and uncertainty of potentially a Colorado State Felony but the stigma in the community that comes with even an accusation of harming a child. The charge against the firm’s client had the potential to result in a jail sentence, probation supervision, diminished parental rights, and other collateral consequences.
Award-Winning and Experienced Child Abuse Attorneys
Tom is an award-winning lawyer with years of experience in high-level Colorado criminal law.
