DUI Attorney Information
Many people who are charged with a DUI in Utah do not realize the severe consequences they are facing. A conviction for DUI may result in jail time, fines, alcohol treatment, and probation. In addition to court ordered sentences, the Utah Driver License Division may also suspend your license simply because you were arrested for DUI. Second offenses or Felony DUI’s can have even more severe consequences. DUI cases can be complicated because of the scientific nature of the evidence.
Domestic Violence Attorney Information
Utah Domestic Violence cases can be very frustrating and the consequences can be severe. Because Utah domestic violence laws are so strict, many people are charged with domestic violence for very minor things, or they are charged with something much more severe than they deserve. Some penalties for a domestic violence conviction include: fines, possible jail time, probation, loss of hunting rights for life, possible loss of employment, etc.
Drug Possession and Drug Distribution Attorney Information
Facing a drug charge in Utah can be very frightening because Utah judges are often more strict than judges outside of Utah. Penalties for drug convictions include jail time, fines, and drug treatment. You may also face collateral consequences to having a drug conviction such as losing your license or losing your job. Hiring a good defense lawyer can make a difference when you are facing a drug charge. An experienced defense attorney can negotiate with the prosecutor to keep a drug conviction off your record.
Violent Crimes Attorney Information
Violent Crimes include assault, aggravated assault, robbery, kidnapping, gun charges, manslaughter, homicide and/or murder. Judges and prosecuting attorneys consider violent crimes much more serious than other crimes. Judges are more likely to impose jail time and prosecutors are less likely to reduce the charges.
Theft Attorney Information
Theft charges include crimes such as shoplifting, identity theft, credit card fraud, and embezzlement. Penalties for a theft conviction can range from fines and restitution to jail or prison time depending on the severity of the theft. Some theft cases such as shoplifting often have videos and witness while other cases have very little evidence. Our theft attorneys will analyze all the evidence to determine the legal approach that will produce the best outcome for you.
