Freedom: Besides your health, there is nothing more precious. Everything depends on it: your family, your profession, your reputation. How are you going to protect it?

You have rights that are protected by the US, Colorado and Florida constitutions. Attorney Elaine Lukic carefully investigates all facts and evidence of all of her cases, and uses her private investigator to obtain material that is not included in the DA’s police report. It is critical for the defense to provide mitigating information and create a more accurate picture of who the defendant is for the courts. Elaine Lukic worked previously as a prosecutor and has valuable insight into how criminal cases are handled by police and district attorneys.

Now, as a defense attorney, Elaine Lukic is directly involved in all cases she handles, and she is available to discuss cases 24/7 for any emergencies. All of her clients are given her personal cellphone number, as well as her investigator’s.

With a reputation for winning, my clients can trust that I will do what’s right. I don’t back down, and fight to the end to protect my client’s rights.

Hire An Attorney Who Will Fight For You

Nothing threatens your freedom more than being charged with a criminal offense. As a defendant charged with a crime, you may be looking at prison or jail time, parole or probation, and a lifetime of restrictions placed on your civil liberties.

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, how are you going to protect your freedom? How can you ensure that your freedoms are not stripped away without due process — without being given a fighting chance against a faceless and uncaring government, and judges and prosecutors who treat their cases like numbers on a conveyor belt?

You can take steps to prevent your freedom from being stripped away by contacting an experienced, aggressive criminal defense attorney who knows the system and can get things done without messing around.

If you or a loved one has been charged with any of the following crimes in Colorado or Florida, I can help:

  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual assault
  • Weapons offenses
  • Drug charges
  • Possessing stolen property
  • Stalking
  • Theft, burglary and robbery
  • Trespassing
  • Driving under the influence
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Juvenile crimes
  • And other offenses

CASE RESULTS

In one case, I got 64 counts of felony sexual assault against the son of a U.S. Ambassador dismissed outright.

I have a reputation for getting clients acquitted and cases dismissed.

I Will Make Them Understand

As a former prosecutor, I understand that the government attorneys who charge and prosecute criminal offenses are overworked and desensitized to the personal element of their job. They receive a police report from officers who may not know all the facts and whose judgment may be biased. They don’t have a full picture of what transpired — and they usually don’t care to have the remainder of those facts illuminated after the arrest.

That is why it is critical for the defense to provide mitigating information and to fill in the blanks missing from the prosecutor’s narrative of events — a narrative that paints only one side of the story and presents a lopsided view of the incident to the court and judge.

As a lawyer who cares about my clients and their freedom, I can help the court understand who the defendant, my client, truly is. I take the time to develop the facts of each case, to understand my client and his or her concerns and to present a strong, aggressive defense in every case I handle.
