An arrest is one of the most traumatic events a person can face, with every decision in the aftermath carrying long-term consequences. You may be under tremendous stress over the impact on your freedom, your family and your overall future. Even a traffic ticket can seriously disrupt your life as you consider financial consequences and possible driver's license suspension — especially if you were stopped in the Aspen area while visiting from another state.
I am Aspen criminal law attorney Richard Nedlin, a former prosecutor who knows the court system, how to negotiate with court officials, and how to build the strongest possible defense case for you — whatever the specific charge. I am also licensed and maintain an active criminal law practice in New York. For nearly five years, I served as a deputy district attorney in Aspen, handling filings, hearings and trials in cases across the spectrum of felonies and misdemeanors. Now that experience can be a pivotal asset for you.
In my criminal defense practice, I emphasize rapid responsiveness, personal attention and top-notch preparation. Whether you must overcome a traffic violation, a drunk driving charge, domestic violence allegations or a violent felony matter, you can turn to me with confidence. I am immersed in my profession and the protection of citizens' legal rights, as evidenced by my monthly columns in the Aspen Times as well as my strong track record. In addition, I offer focused, results-oriented representation in divorce and other family law matters.

I am Richard Nedlin, a dedicated, Aspen-based lawyer primarily focused on criminal defense and traffic violations. I earned my law degree and was licensed in New York subsequent to relocating to Colorado, a favorite destination since my youth. I practice criminal law in New York as well as Colorado. For just short of five years, I served as a deputy district attorney in the Ninth Judicial District Attorney's Office. As a prosecutor, I filed and handled approximately 300 misdemeanor and felony cases each year. This includes conducting numerous jury trials in Aspen and Rifle.
Today, I pour my professional energies into defending my local and out-of-state clients against all types of criminal and traffic charges, from speeding to driving under the influence (DUI), drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and more. My experience as a prosecutor is invaluable in analyzing the cases against my clients and negotiating or litigating to achieve favorable outcomes. I also write a monthly column on important criminal defense issues for the Aspen Times.
