Eagle County Criminal Defense Attorneys


We Represent Immigrants Who Face Criminal Charges

If you are an immigrant who has been charged with a crime, you need a criminal defense attorney.

You should be worried about jail, your reputation — and your immigration status. An arrest for a crime may put your immigration status in jeopardy. A conviction can trigger removal.

At Ted Hess & Associates, LLC, in Glenwood Springs, our lawyers focus on “crimmigration.” This is where immigration law and criminal law meet. Call +1-970-945-5300 to learn how we can help you.

Our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined legal experience, and our lead attorney is a retired U.S. Marine Corps brigadier general. We know how to negotiate, and we know how to fight.

We Will Fight For Your Rights

We represent immigrants who have been accused of all types of crimes, including domestic violence, drunk driving, shoplifting, sex crimes and assault.

When we look into your case, we will ask you how the police and ICE treated you. If their agents crossed a line, it might be possible to have your case dismissed. In some cases, we even sue law enforcement agencies for violating the rights of immigrants.

We Attack Old Convictions

Are you facing deportation or immigration problems because of an old conviction? We can help. We will attack your old conviction so you can fix your papers.

We have achieved several victories in the Colorado Supreme Court and Court of Appeals We know how to fight, and we will fight for you.

In many cases, immigrants plead guilty or are convicted of a crime only to find out later that this jeopardizes their right to stay in the U.S. Maybe you thought your lawyer got you a good deal — but your lawyer wasn’t looking out for your papers.

Our crimmigration lawyers will work hard to obtain post-conviction relief for you so that you can stay in the U.S. and fix your papers.
