Criminal defense cases are the second of our ugly step-sisters. We call these cases ugly because anytime you tangle with laws and justice it means that there are people who have been hurt and wronged. Additionally, due to the checks and balances in the law, criminal defense cases tend to have a lot of red tape. To the inexperienced, the courtroom can feel like an emotional labyrinth. To keep from getting lost in the maze, we recommend working with Witt Law’s experienced attorneys in St George Utah.
Since before the official founding of our country, there has been a firm belief that everyone has a right to a fair trial. After our country was founded this ideal became cemented in law in the form of the Eighth, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments in our Bill of Rights. A few of the rights stated in these amendments for the accused are those of a public trial, an impartial jury, the right to self-representation or representation by a council (hiring an attorney), and that the punishment meted out for the crime must be proportional to the punishment. We invite you to review the Bill of Rights to see the complete list of protected rights.
We handle misdemeanor and felony cases for adults and juveniles in district and justice courts all over Southern Utah.

There are few things more painful and devastating to the individuals involved than a divorce. No matter how smoothly or efficiently it goes the couple, and their kids, are likely to be deeply affected by it. It is not a matter that should be considered lightly. The pain of separation is a hard one to heal from, but there are cases where abuse, violence, and emotional manipulation make staying impossible.

If you are going through a divorce, here are just a couple of ways out of the many that a divorce attorney in St George Utah can you.
- Legal Expertise, Documents, and Advocacy in Court
- Divorce laws and regulations vary from state to state. By getting the help of Witt Law’s Divorce Attorneys in St George Utah you can have someone on your side who can explain your legal rights and obligations and help you make sure that you are protected throughout the process.

- Objective Advice
- It is easy to be overwhelmed or distracted by the pain, anger, and other negative emotions that get supercharged during divorce situations. Witt Law’s Attorneys in St George Utah give objective and practical advice to help you make good, and healthy decisions regarding present and future situations.
- Negotiation, and Mediation.
- Fortunately, Utah law now requires parties to a divorce action to participate in mandatory mediation. So long as 1) there has been adequate disclosure of financial information, 2) the personal attendance at mediation, and 3) the assistance of an effective mediator there is a high likelihood of the case being resolved either at or within a few weeks after the mediation. In effect, that means so long as the parties cooperate reasonably well, the costs and fees can be relatively manageable.
Family law matters can often be some of the greatest challenges a person may have experienced. It’s not a good idea to go it alone. You may later regret it. We help people with cases involving parentage, separation, divorce, custody, child support, alimony, modifications, enforcement motions, protective orders, guardianships, and more.

Take care of your Wills & Trusts with Witt Law’s Attorneys in St George Utah.
Need a will or trust kit? Call 1-800-GET-WITT
Now that we’ve gone through the three ugly step-sisters, let’s take a quick look at our last area of practice. Estate Planning and Administration. When first thinking about estate planning two of the most common and important questions are “Do I need a will or a trust?” and “ What’s the difference?”
Wills are a simple document that takes effect at the time of death of the will owner. The will is an important legal document as it explains to the court and family how the deceased wished to have their property distributed to their beneficiaries after their death.
Trusts are a more complex process where a third party (an heir, a business association, etc.) is named as the trustee. Upon the death of the trustor (the one owning the trust) the trustee becomes the immediate head of the estate and can direct the trust as they see fit.
Whether or not you need one or the other depends heavily on your situation. Give the Witt Law firm Estate Planning and Administration Attorneys in St George Utah a call for an initial consultation and Estate Planning 101, and find out what you need to do to make sure everything is set in order. We can discuss the difference between having no will, having a will, and having a complete or premium trust package.
Both our complete and premium trust packages are presented in well-appointed binders and include the trust instrument, an exhibit of property to transfer to the trust, real estate conveyance deeds, account transfer instruction letters, disposition of personal property documents, a pour-over will, a financial power of attorney, a medical advance health care directive and a letter with easy instructions for the successor trustees. Plus, we help you complete the transfer of assets to your trust.
Remember, if you need a will or trust, don’t go to just any attorney in St George Utah. Go to Witt Law, the attorneys in St George Utah that has your best interest at heart.
