"The domestic violence and DUI crimes that I was charged with would have ruined my career. Thank you for saving me! You are worth every penny I paid you."
"We were so afraid that my son was going to prison. You were compassionate and easy to talk to. We are amazed that you got the charges resolved. We were amazed at how thorough you were, and how you saw things that other lawyers that we had spoken to had not even noticed."
Here is what we are typically hired to do:
1. Try to get a person out of jail fast. We can usually meet with your loved one in jail the SAME day we are hired — and yes, we will definitely send your love, prayers and support! We work with bail bondsmen that are Utah's best and most trusted and can get you the lowest bail rates possible. Do not hire a bondsman before contacting us! This is because we often get bail reduced dramatically, saving the family and/or friends thousands of dollars, or get the accused out of jail without having to pay any bail at all.
2. Represent the accused, so that he or she can get the best deal possible. This may mean getting the case totally dismissed, negotiating a fair resolution, fighting the case at trial and/or appealing the case.
3. Help people get charges and convictions reduced or erased from their criminal records, even if we were not the original attorneys.
4. Let the accused know that his or her life is precious, and still has TREMENDOUS VALUE! Some of our clients are at rock bottom and think their lives are worthless (some are even suicidal). We do our best to lift their spirits, and we let them know that we will fight for them and that we truly care about them. We assure them that WE WILL GET THEM THROUGH THIS! There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Remember: Simply pleading guilty can be totally stupid, even if you are guilty. You still have rights, and you should not get a worse deal than somebody else simply because you want to take responsibility for what you have done! Do NOT plead guilty before you consult with us!
And please, talk to us before you try to talk to a prosecutor. It is often hard for us to undo the damage that has been done before we were hired. Criminal law is very complicated, and every judge and prosecutor has his or her own style and beliefs. We know those styles and beg you not to try to handle a case on your own.
Judges and prosecutors know us and respect us. We have a job to do for you, and they understand that. They know that we are honest, professional and willing to put in the effort necessary to pursue positive results for people like you.
Whether you are charged with a state crime in Utah or you are facing federal charges, you should know that the prosecutors will work hard to see you convicted. If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, you need to know your rights and stick to them:
We are on your side. We will listen to you. Even if you believe you are guilty, we will strive to get you the best deal possible.

The user and reader of this information should beware because although we strive to keep the information timely and accurate, there will often be a delay between official publication of the materials and their appearance in or modification of this system, and every case must be looked at individually.
