Why You Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer
If you are convicted of a misdemeanor or felony criminal offense in Utah, you will face substantial monetary fines and the potential for jail or prison time.
In addition to possible fines and incarceration, the judge may compel you to serve probation, perform community service or attend mandatory counseling. A conviction will also earn you a permanent record. Having a criminal record can prevent you from getting a job, renting an apartment, being accepted into college or obtaining a professional license.
And, depending on the charges you face, you may not be eligible to have your record sealed or expunged in the future.
What Will a Criminal Defense Attorney Do for You?
Facing a criminal charge alone is frightening as well as risky.
The police and prosecutors do not have your best interest in mind and, in fact, they frequently fight for a conviction to hold you up as a public example in the community. When you have a criminal defense lawyer fighting for you, you always have someone on your side.
When you trust us to handle your case, we will be there for you during every step of the process, fighting for your freedom and your future.
We will begin by investigating your case and gathering evidence on your behalf. This is important because the police may overlook important evidence, especially if they believe you aren’t inclined to fight the charges pending against you.
Any errors committed by the police or problems with evidence that we can identify provides us with leverage to negotiate with the prosecutor.
You Need Aggressive Legal Representation to Fight Criminal Charges
Our team will represent you in every aspect of your case. We will always fight hardest to have your charges dismissed or reduced. But, if necessary, we will prepare you case for trial and fight for you in court.
To get a conviction, the prosecution must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. It is our job to build a strong case on your behalf and, in the process, present evidence to introduce reasonable doubt to the judge and jury.
