In her criminal defense practice Ms. Noack vigorously represents her clients throughout the entire process. Ms. Noack has represented criminal law clients in a variety of matters including DUIs (both drug & alcohol related), traffic violations, theft, domestic violence charges, misdemeanor and felony assaults, misdemeanor and felony drug charges, Department of Revenue (DMV) Hearings and sealing criminal records. Through her zealous representation Ms. Noack has successfully had all charges against her clients dismissed in matters such as felony assaults, violations of protection orders and unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon. In one of her favorite criminal cases, Ms. Noack represented the client from before the time any charges were filed until all records related to the matter were sealed. She was there to visit the client in jail as soon as she was arrested and appeared at the first appearance, bond reduction hearing and pre-trial conferences. Ms. Noack convinced the Denver District Attorney's Office to dismiss all three charges against the client, including a class 3 felony for assault with a deadly weapon. After succeeding in having all of the charges dismissed, Ms. Noack then successfully petitioned to the court to seal all records related to the matter, greatly assisting in her client's future employment opportunities.
