Utah Criminal Defense Attorneys

Being charged with a crime changes your life. You may feel as if the world is against you and everything has gone wrong. But all is not lost. Your life is not over, and there is help available.

More than anything, you need someone with the experience to help you navigate this process. Most criminal cases do not go to a trial. Felony charges do not always result in felony convictions and misdemeanor charges do not always result in jail time.

It is important to know that you have options. An experienced criminal lawyer can help you explore the various legal defenses that may be available in your case, and conduct a thorough case analysis to help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case. Taking your case to trial may be the best option. Or your attorney may get a better result by negotiating with the prosecutor.

Having hope means knowing that your case has a chance, your life has a chance, that you still have a chance. Your lawyer should be able to help you navigate this process while you rebuild your life.


Our client was charged with a First Degree Felony and facing a 15-year minimum prison sentence. After four days of trial, evidence, and witness testimony (including expert witnesses) the jury needed only three hours to acquit our client. NOT GUILTY!


Out-of-state client was arrested for DUI in Utah. The evidence against him was both compelling and strong. We negotiated a Plea in Abeyance to a lesser charge and the client was able to resolve all issues without having to return to Utah. The case was dismissed after six months and the payment of a court fee.


Client was involved in an altercation on a public basketball court and charged with Assault as a Class A Misdemeanor. The State had strong video evidence and eye-witness testimony implicating our client but the jury agreed with us that the client had acted in self-defense and our client was acquitted.


Client was stopped at a DUI checkpoint and “failed” several field sobriety tests. After challenging the State’s evidence – including poorly obtained blood samples – we negotiated a complete dismissal of all charges.
