Pre-File Investigations & Advocacy

If you have been accused of a criminal offense in Colorado or learn that you are under investigation of a crime, you need a lawyer to help protect your rights and potentially prevent criminal charges from ever being filed.

 

When an individual has been accused of committing a crime, the police conduct a pre-file criminal investigation. During the investigative process, the police review evidence and talk to witnesses to determine whether they believe there is evidence of a crime. It is also during this stage of the process that many individuals are interrogated, often through the use of tactics designed to “trip up” the individual.

 

If you believe you may be a suspect in a criminal offense, it is vital for you to have a lawyer during the pre-file investigation process. Iris Eytan is dedicated to making sure you have the best representation during this important and potentially life-changing stage of a criminal case. As one of the most respected criminal defense attorneys in Colorado, she has the reputation and know-how to stop your criminal case before it is filed.

During the pre-file investigation, there are a number of ways that a person without an attorney can make critical, life-altering mistakes. Oftentimes, the police officers and detectives involved in questioning witnesses about crimes are working under extreme stress with large caseloads.

 

They may look for the easiest resolution to the crime they are investigating, and often do not have time to review small details that might eliminate you as a suspect.

 

As a seasoned Colorado criminal defense attorney, Iris knows what you are up against during the pre-file investigation process. She has successfully convinced police and prosecutors throughout Colorado not to charge a crime they are investigating.

Title IX Defense

Historically, Title IX of the Educational Amendment Act of 1972 is meant to protect gender discrimination. However, now it is the method in which colleges expel young men after an accusation of sexual misconduct. Colleges and Universities have a vested interest in protecting the funding that they receive as a part of Title IX of the Education Amendment Act of 1972. They are also vested in protecting a reputation that is tarnished by keeping young men on campus who are accused of rape. While this law is designed to provide students with a safe and equal educational experience, that is not always the case.

Iris Eytan has successfully represented falsely accused students, many of the young men, dealing with Title IX university proceedings all over the United States. Many innocent students, mostly male, are falsely reported of Title IX offenses every year—allegations that can follow them for the rest of their lives.

This includes claims of:
● Sexual Assault
● Sexual Misconduct
● Intimate Partner Violence
● Hazing
● Sex or Gender Discrimination
● Retaliation
● Sexual Harassment

Any allegation, regardless of whether it took place off campus or with a student from another school, can result in suspension, expulsion, or a permanent note on a student’s transcript—making it difficult to transfer to a new school, be accepted to a post-college educational program (including law, business or medical school), or be hired for a professional job.

Students who have been the victims of a false Title IX claim often do not seek help until it is too late. A Title IX university proceeding for sexual misconduct allegations purports to look fair, but it is not. There are several important differences that you have to know up front including there is no presumption of innocence, no hearing, and cross examination of the accuser.
