Criminal Defense Lawyer in St. George, Utah

When being charged with a crime, you need the confidence and devotion of a competent criminal defense lawyer. We have the help needed to anyone accused of crimes in the St. George area. Regardless of the charge, you want the backing of a loyal and experienced attorney. We are committed to our clients and want to make sure that the punishment for the crime is as minimal as possible and in most cases to achieve an acquittal. We are determined to clear your name.

Felonies/Misdemeanors

The law treats misdemeanors and felonies differently. A misdemeanor is generally a crime that is punishable for up to a year or less in prison or jail. Being convicted of a felony versus a misdemeanor can have serious consequences. The penalties aren’t just longer jail times, but the penalty can have lasting affects on your employment, family, and future.

DUI

The typical, law-abiding citizen doesn’t deserve jail time or serious punishment. We hope to avoid driver’s license suspension, reduce charges, avoid jail, and reduce fines. We will review the evidence and will represent you in the courtroom.

Burglary/Theft

Being a well established and long time firm in the southern Utah area, we are prepared to handle cases from petty theft to armed robbery. Because these crimes range in seriousness and punishment it is important to know how to handle each situation case-by-case basis. Regardless of what theft crime you have been charged with we will help you.

Aggravated Assault

In many situations, aggravated assault charges are those of self-defense that were taken too far. Aggravated assault is usually a felony and a charge that is often misunderstood. The charges can be very severe for the crime, and the need for a lawyer is imperative.

Drugs

If you are caught with drugs, there is a range of punishments determined by the quantity and purpose of your possession. Most of these drug offenses are felonies, which need to be handled by someone experienced. We will help.

Sex Defenses

The penalties of a sex crime are severe and can mean a life in prison depending on the charge and case. We take sex crimes very seriously and want to protect you from being punished for a crime you didn’t commit. It takes only one person to accuse someone of something as serious as rape or molestation. It is easy to find fault and side with the prosecution, even without evidence, which is why one should have a reliable criminal defense lawyer.
