Hutchinson Black and Cook has developed a reputation as Colorado's foremost law firm for protecting the rights of victims of violent crime in both civil and criminal proceedings. HBC lawyers provide crime victims with a range of options to hold both offenders and third parties accountable through the civil justice system for crimes such as sexual violence, child abuse and neglect, assault, stalking and domestic violence.
HBC lawyers also have extensive experience in representing victims and their families in the criminal courts. Our goals are to provide clients with a clear understanding of the criminal justice system, and their rights as victims, ensure enforcement of their rights under the Colorado Crime Victims' Rights Act, and safeguard their privacy as the criminal case moves forward to trial. By doing so, we meet a need too often ignored by criminal prosecutors, who lack either the time or the experience to ensure that our clients' concerns are addressed and their rights protected throughout the process.
