Gregory B. Smith has gotten amazing results for people for twenty years. He's not only a highly skilled legal bulldog, but a compassionate person, too. He's a "lawyer's lawyer," too. He's put on seminars for other attorneys, and has personally trained about a dozen young criminal defense attorneys, so the legal community as a whole has greatly benefitted from his skill and knowledge. He has also authored and self-published various e-books, and written many articles. His legal insights have landed him on Good Morning America twice, and his editorials on sundry matters have been published in newspapers around the country. Most importantly, he can talk to you today. In fact, you can him now at 801-651-1512, his personal cell phone. Clients are constantly amazed that he answers all of his calls every day.

His initial training was actually in prosecutor work about twenty years ago. Here is what his former boss, D. Davis, former lead prosecutor, said of him: [Greg Smith] assisted me in Court, with the prosecution work we did as City Attorneys for the City of Mission, Texas. The cases involved traffic violations, assaults, thefts. [He] also assisted in court appearances. [He] gained considerable experience in procedure and working with law enforcement officers, methods of presenting evidence, including direct and cross-examination of witnesses, and above all, comprehensive preparation of cases for trial."

In other words, not only does Mr. Smith understand how to defend your or your loved one, he knows how prosecutors think, too.

His clients love him because he's very down to earth, and more than willing to take their calls 24/7 - even on weekends. In fact, he often meets with his clients at restaurants, instead of at his law office, so that the client can relax, and talk freely. By doing this, Mr. Smith can really get to know them, and get a solid background on the case. However, he is happy to meet at his office, too. It is no wonder the law firm has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. He demands that all the lawyers that work at his office return communications promptly, and that they give all the law firm clients the best legal representation possible. He's respected by prosecutors and judges, too, because his style does not alienate them.

Mr. Smith has always been a go-getter. In high school, he was class president and earned a college football scholarship because of his hard work, and ability to set high goals and achieve them - his college team even won the National Championship while Mr. Smith was serving as a missionary in Argentina. Football taught him a lot about life, and how to fight and win within the rules. However, due to many shoulder dislocations, he had to undergo surgery twice and abandon his dream to play in the NFL. Instead, he became an attorney. Now instead of sacking quarterbacks, and blocking for runners, he helps people get Justice in Utah!

As previously stated, right out of law school in the early 1990s, Mr. Smith gained valuable insights while participating in the prosecution of many cases in Texas (acting under the direction of licensed and highly skilled attorneys, who had been around the block many, many times). However, Mr. Smith was often uncomfortable asking the judge to punish people for things that Mr. Smith felt were often simple errors in judgment.

He also quickly learned that many accusers were not honest, or that they had blown things way out of proportion. So, he decided he could do more good helping those who were accused of crimes. Then, he moved back to Utah and took the Utah bar exam instead of the Texas one, so he never became licensed in the Lone Star State. However, the several months of comprehensive prosecutorial and courtroom experience that he gained there served as the springboard for what he's been able to accomplish in Utah over the past two decades. After all, participating in moot court in law school is one thing, and being a part-time intern in another; but, being continuously exposed to real live cases, and all aspects of them - for many months - is a totally different thing. There is just no substitute for the real thing.

While in Texas, Mr. Smith also spent a lot of time in the District Court, so he could learn from those who prosecuted felonies. One day, a veteran prosecutor gave Mr. Smith this advice: Divorce yourself from what the accuser alleges, and instead, look at the facts. Don't believe the first thing you hear, and I am telling you now that that is a very hard thing to do! Remember, the person who is accused is presumed innocent, and accusers get no presumption. It is better for 1,000 guilty men to go free than for one innocent person to go to jail. And don't ever go after a person just because that is what the police are telling you to do. Your job is to do justice, and you don't work for the police department.

That advice changed Mr. Smith's life.

Too often, an accuser is a bitter, or even hateful ex-lover, a disgruntled ex-coworker, or just a busybody that wants to make somebody's life utter hell. Mr. Smith understands that those you once trusted can prove that they were never worthy of your trust at all. When it is convenient, they can suddenly lie, tell half-truths, and can even fabricate evidence.

He also understands that even if a person is guilty, there is MUCH MORE to that person than the criminal charges, and that the person needs to get on with his or her life.

As a defense attorney, it is highly beneficial to know how cases proceed from the prosecutorial side, and Mr. Smith learned that while serving in his prosecutorial role in South Texas. This starts with understanding how "victims" are interviewed and perceived when they bring a complaint. Mr. Smith knows that the deck can get stacked against a defendant very quickly. Why? Because police officers often get moved emotionally, and they don't want a disbelieve a "victim", and Mr. Smith witnessed that first hand.Mr. Smith understands how a clever person can bias even the most honest of police officers and prosecutors. He also knows how so-called victims can be perpetrators that are just trying to turn tables, or win a race to the police department.

Because of his prosecutorial experience, he also understands how opening statements, cross examinations and closing arguments for court are prepared from the point of view of the prosecution, and how evidence is gathered and looked at by the police and the prosecution.

Since then, Mr. Smith has helped literally thousands of people cope with the Utah legal system. Call him now at 801-651-1512. He's ready to help you get the BEST RESULT POSSIBLE.
