At Roselle & Breitigam, P.C. we have eight main focuses that we can offer clients. We want to make sure we’re giving those individuals who come to us the best outcome for your case. With these eight focus areas, we’re able to help those who come to us seeking assistance.


DUIs and DWAIs in Colorado are unfortunately a lot more prevalent than one would want. At Roselle & Breitigam, P.C., we cater to those who have regrettably received a DUI and a DWAI in the Larimer and Weld county areas. In Northern Colorado, DUIs and DWAIs are taken very seriously, which means the Deputy District attorney doesn’t cut corners and the judge won’t hesitate to give you a harsh sentence even if it’s your first time getting a DUI or a DWAI. A DWAI is when you blow a blood alcohol content level of .05 percent to .08 percent, so even that one drink can put you over the limit. A DUI is when you’re .08 percent over with your blood alcohol content level. The lines with DUIs can be a bit murky, which is why if you’ve received a DUI or a DWAI it is in your best interest to call on a defense attorney. With possible jail time and costly fines, you’ll need someone in your corner.


Drug charges include individuals who may be facing misdemeanors and felonies due to drug crimes. Drug charges in the state of Colorado can be a little confusing since marijuana has been legal since 2012. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get in trouble for crimes dealing with marijuana. When you are in trouble for crimes dealing with drugs, you’ll want an aggressive attorney who will offer you the advice and representation that will allow you to get the best results for your actions. By being resourceful, experienced, and skillful at defending against drug charges, you’ll find that your future can be best protected with defense attorneys who will uphold all of these attributes. Drug charges are a serious matter, which is why it’s important to appoint a reliable and experienced defense attorney.


As a student in college, sometimes you get into a little trouble with the law. At Roselle & Breitigam, P.C., one of our focus areas are student criminal defense. When students become unfortunately tangled with the law, they’ll face a possible suspension from their school and a disciplinary hearing. When a student is faced with criminal charges, they can lose out on a bright future and end up losing thousands of dollars for college. If you’ve found yourself facing misdemeanor or felony charges such as assault, bar fights, shoplifting, underage drinking, drug possession, or DUIs, then you’ll need a defense attorney to ensure your future is protected. We want to help keep great students in school, which is why we can represent you if you’ve faced any crimes that threaten your future.


Theft and property crimes include taking, using, entering, or damaging property illegally. If you’ve broken into someone’s home to steal things versus shoplifting, you can be looking at a misdemeanor or a felony. We’ve dealt with many different crimes revolving around theft and property before. With experience in white-collar crimes, burglary, shoplifting, trespassing, and criminal mischief, we are able to bring together an effective case that will be successful. Additionally, if you’ve faced crimes in the past or recently, we can help to seal criminal records for those who would like to keep their crimes private.


Felony charges are very serious and you can face years in prison for them. The mandatory sentence for a felony can be a minimum prison sentence and heavy fines. Misdemeanors should be taken just as seriously because you can still spend time in jail and face some hefty fines as well. Getting a misdemeanor or a felony can result in your future not turning out the way you want because of the black mark on your record. If you’ve found yourself needing to be defended by felony or misdemeanor charges, then you’ve come to the right place. Roselle & Breitigam, P.C. can help you focus on seeking a positive outcome for your convictions. We’ll lay out the best strategy and walk you through what you can expect. We strive to help you avoid a worst-case scenario because we know that your future is at stake.


Domestic violence is a grey line. The broad term of domestic violence in Colorado can find people who are regular, everyday people behind bars and labeled as an abuser because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. The laws on domestic violence can ruin people’s lives, especially if labeled wrong. When you come to our law firm, we won’t judge you on what may or may not have happened with your domestic violence charges. We will aggressively defend you and help to strategize the right plan for your situation. By creating an individualized plan, we’ll diligently find a solution to ensure your future is bright and possible. Domestic violence can be tricky, which is why you want a lawyer who will work to brighten your future.


We all make mistakes, especially when it comes to probation. Probation can be a sticky situation. With so many rules you need to follow, a probation officer is just trying to look out for your best interests, which is why when you’ve violated probation it needs to be reported to a judge. If you’ve found yourself facing probation revocation because of a situation that may have violated your probation, then you need to appoint a lawyer who has dealt with situations like these previously. Probation revocation can give you a hopeless future, but when you take the time to employ a legal defense to protect your rights, you’ll find that the results don’t look as bleak as you may think.


Traffic tickets might not seem like a big deal, but when you put off paying traffic tickets or you feel like you’ve been wrongly accused of a speeding ticket, then you’ll need to appoint an attorney to defend you. Most people pay the fine they owe and move on, but sometimes you may feel that you’ve been wrongly given a speeding ticket. Figuring out if you need to fight a speeding ticket can be difficult, but there are some instances that it’s worth bringing attention to. For example, if you’ve got a few speeding tickets or if you’re facing a driving suspension, then appointing a lawyer to your case can be in your best interest.

If you’ve found yourself facing any convictions that fall under these eight focus areas, then don’t hesitate to contact us for a free consultation to see how we can help you get the most efficient result for your situation.
