Defending against assault, felony assault, menacing, battery, abuse or homicide (murder) charges demands experienced, aggressive legal help. If you are accused of committing a violent crime, it makes sense to have a criminal defense lawyer on your side who:
- Brings years of experience to your case
- Has the resources to fully investigate and prepare your case
- Is not distracted by handling other areas of law (such as personal injury cases, or noncriminal defense cases) on the side
- Is highly knowledgeable regarding prosecutors' tactics, methods, procedural limits and motivations
Shazam Kianpour and the many attorneys at the law firm of Shazam Kianpour & Associates, P.C., bring these essential qualities and more to each case that we handle. We are the go-to guys who understand where you are coming from. Contact us to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer from our firm.

Mandatory Sentences Are Possible With Many of These Charges
A new hot topic for district attorneys is becoming violent crimes in Denver and Arapahoe counties. These two counties along with Adams County, Douglas County and Jefferson County have always been a focal point of investigations toward gun charges, high school bullying, and gang fights. But the new concern is the number of assault, battery, felony assault, and sex assault charges that have been filed in these counties over the last several years.
A lot of violent crimes in Colorado can carry mandatory sentences. These include anywhere from guaranteed prison time, to anger management and DV classes, treatment, therapy, community service or just good old-fashioned jail.
I am charged with a violent crime, but I don't think I am getting jail. Should I hire a Denver criminal lawyer?
Yes, you should seriously consider hiring a qualified criminal defense lawyer in Arapahoe, Jefferson, Douglas County, or any county where you are charged. Your lawyer does not need to live in or office in the county that you are charged, but he or she needs to be experienced and a violent crimes lawyer in Colorado who is not new to the courtroom setting.
For example, at Shazam Kianpour & Associates, we are a criminal defense law firm in Denver Colorado, but we handle and successfully defend criminal cases all over the metro area and some mountain jurisdictions like Park County, Eagle County, Summit County, and we are also criminal defense attorneys for Larimer, Gilpin, and Weld counties also. Too often while waiting in court to handle our clients' cases, we see a defendant without a criminal lawyer suckered by a district attorney who offers him a "no jail" deal.
It seems good at first but we have seen too many people fail out of probation and get long jail sentences at the end of the day. Make sure you don't try to handle violent crime cases by yourself. Call us today at 303-578-4036 and get your free consultation with an assault criminal lawyer in Denver today.
The Advantages of Working With Shazam Kianpour & Associates, P.C.
Prosecutors are not stupid. If you are charged with a crime of violence (COV) or a violent crime (yes, the two are different categories and Shazam can explain the difference to you) the DA is not going to give you a great offer for no reason. Too often offers that look great end up coming back to bite you because now you have a violent record and cannot seal or expunge your record in Colorado. Good lucking getting a job or a loan with that record.
Or sometimes the probation requirements are so tough that they are counting on you "blowing it" and then they can ask the judge for the prison or jail sentence they originally wanted to give you. Other times, the probation sentence is unfair and way too long so the prosecutor knows it is more likely than not you will trip up and flunk out when you have to be compliant with probation for so many years.
There are multiple reasons why you should seriously consider hiring a good criminal lawyer for your assault charges. Even if you are charged with less serious misdemeanor assault charges, sometimes they are domestic violence cases and before you know it, you have pled guilty to a charge and have to give up your gun rights and sell all your hard-earned guns and weapons collections.
We ask the real questions that the police and prosecutor often ignore. What is the motive behind claiming sexual abuse or domestic violence? Was an assault provoked? Did the police violate your rights in any way when they seized evidence? Were you informed of your rights during the arrest? One exposed mistake can make a big difference in the outcome of a violent charge case.
