Colorado Springs Domestic Violence Attorneys
An arrest for domestic violence ripples into every aspect of your life. It can cost you your right to see your children, your employment, your right to possess firearms and perhaps your freedom.
The Gasper Law Group provides the skilled, proactive defense to shield you from the worst consequences of a criminal charge of domestic assault. We also can represent you in fighting a permanent restraining order or defend you on subsequent charges of violating a protective order.
Allen Gasper and his associate attorneys have extensive experience in domestic violence defense. We serve men and women in the Colorado Springs area, including El Paso County, Teller County and Arapahoe and Douglas counties.
Domestic Assault Is a Serious Allegation
Domestic violence assault may be charged as a misdemeanor (a push, a slap, threats of violence) or a felony if the spousal abuse caused serious or lasting injury.
Teachers, child care workers and others in “people” positions can lose their jobs or professional licensure. You can lose your right to own or carry a gun – a career-ending problem in the military. In Colorado, a DV assault carries a special tag, with enhanced penalties as a habitual offender for future criminal charges.
NOTE: Domestic violence allegations also have ramifications in divorce and custody disputes. The Gasper Law Group practices family law in Colorado Springs – our firm can protect your interests in both the criminal and family court arenas.
Caryn Adams and her team are hands down the BEST. I don't think I would have made it through what I went through without her by my side. My charges were dropped and we walked away with all parental rights/custody and a restraining order against the other party.- Avarie J.
I dug myself a deep hole and didn’t have much hope or luck with the attorney I used before. I called Gasper law group and Caryn Adams was my attorney that took charge of everything. I couldn’t have asked for anything better the outcome she made possible is everything I wanted. She is great at her job and takes cases seriously … don’t have much hope leave it to Caryn she will change that. Thanks Gasper law group you’re the best!- Mike L.
I used the Gasper Law Group when I was going through my divorce and child custody case. I got the outcome I wanted, Carrie Kelly and Kimberly Lucas made my life 10x easier considering i didn’t know what I was doing. They were patient, and caring and even made me laugh a few times. I highly recommend you use them to make your life easier. I couldn’t ask for a better team! I’m now happily divorced and got my kiddo 50/50! You guys rock and if anything comes up in the future, I’ll be sure to use you guys! Thanks so much gasper law group for the fast and professional services!- Micheala E.
I, unfortunately, was involved with two separate situations within a few years of each other, which left me in quite a bind both times. I was lucky enough to have Caryn assist me in both cases and was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only she carries, but the firm as a whole. One of the best, if not the best lawyers I've ever come across. Extremely nice and very honest. I was able to resolve my situations with minimal impact and continue my life without fear of being held back.- Former Client
Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.- Salah H.

I don't write many reviews! Gasper Law Group proved to be worthy of my highest recommendation. Everyone at some time will need some legal service, but where to go. I want you to know Gasper Law Group can help you save what you might stand to lose. I really want you to know Christine S. is the finest Family Law Attorney you will find. Christine is experienced, committed to her clients, and will help save what whats most important to you. I would so like the leadership of Gasper Law Group to know how fortunate they are to have a team member of her Caliber. If you need legal help use Gasper, and ask for Christine I am thankful I did!!!- Eric D.
Caryn Adams, Stacey Sadler and the rest of the team at the Gasper law group are an amazing, courteous, compassionate, and very helpful group of talented individuals. I was in a bind and during my consultation I explained my situation and they went above and beyond my expectations. They took care of my case in a very timely manner and made it feel like my traffic ticket was their number one and only priority. I have never been treated with such respect and compassion. I definitely recommend talking to them about any of your legal needs.- Scott R.
Fighting the Charges
If police are called, at least one of the parties will be going to jail. If you were arrested, contact us immediately before you say anything. Any statement, regardless how insignificant it might seem, could come back to bite you. Sometimes, police show up the next day. If you have any hint that charges are coming, we can represent you for a low fee to check into it.
In the domestic violence hearing, we fight to have charges dismissed or minimized. Was the assault provoked or in self-defense? Was it exaggerated or fabricated for other motivations? Are the witnesses cooperative? (We commonly get calls from victims who want charged dropped. Unfortunately, that is not one of the victim’s rights.)
The Gasper Law Group represents you in every phase of domestic violence proceedings, including extension of the temporary protective order or representation on charges of stalking or harassment.
Contact us quickly to protect your rights and determine where you stand.
