Your Driver License, your career, your criminal record, and even your family relationships are all on the line.

I understand that you’re probably feeling confused, angry, or somewhat fearful about what’s happened to you. The process of being arrested, taken to jail, fingerprinted, and photographed was probably very dehumanizing to you. I sincerely sympathize with that.

To be honest with you–you’re faced with a charge which can have serious outcomes. I don’t want to scare you, but let me give you a glimpse of what’s in store for you. If your case goes the wrong way you could lose your license…your insurance could go up or be cancelled…you could even go to jail.

Plus it doesn’t end there. A conviction is something that could haunt you for many years to come, even hurting you when you apply for a job.

If you are wondering if you should higher a local attorney or an attorney who focuses on DUI Defense, consider whether you would want the closest doctor to do surgery on you for a life altering procedure, or if you would want the best doctor you could find. While I am a DUI Attorney based in Ogden, I travel all over the state. I have defended people accused of DUI as far south as St. George and Kanab, and as far North as Logan and Randolph. Hire the best Utah DUI Attorney you can afford.

The Guy that Wrote the Books on DUI Defense

I have been defending people accused of DUI since 1998. As a Utah DUI Attorney, Board Certified in DUI Defense, I have authored the only Book in Utah on DUI Defense for lawyers. The book is now in its second edition titled “Utah DUI Defense: The Law and Practice, Second Edition.” This book is designed to help other lawyers in defending people accused of DUI. I further authored the “Utah DUI Survival Guide.” This book is designed for the citizen accused of a DUI to help the understanding of the process and the procedures of being changed with a DUI. Do not hire a lawyer, go to court, or talk with a prosecutor until you read my book. Request my FREE book by sending me an email request or calling 1-800-utah-dui. I will forward you a copy at no charge and no obligation. I will also help you take the first step in your DUI case to request a Driver License Hearing.

I’ll Help You Keep Your License and Your Freedom

I know you’re fearful about what might happen to you, but I’d like you to know that there’s a good chance I can help. Did you know that there are at least 20 possible challenges that can be made to the charges you are facing? I’ll raise the applicable challenges for you so your case is as strong as possible.

Sure, I can just fill out the forms and talk to the District Attorney, but in many cases the best choice is to fight. That’s the kind of case I focus on.

My goal is to get you off, to keep your record clean, and to prevent you from losing your freedom and your license to drive. You see…my practice is based on the belief that you were arrested when you shouldn’t have been.

At the very least, I’ll make sure that you’re being treated fairly.

The prosecuting attorney prosecutes these types of cases all day. He knows–and is willing to use against you–all of the fine legal points that are available to him.

The law says that he only needs to prove that after drinking you were not able to drive your car safely or that your blood alcohol exceedes a certain limit. That sounds pretty cut and dried, but it’s not quite as simple as that.

You see, if challenged, the prosecutor also has to show that the arresting officer made the arrest properly, that you were properly advised of your rights, that the equipment he used to test you was working accurately, and even that the person operating that equipment was certified to operate it. If he gets information which may prove you innocent, an attorney can make him give you that information also.

Get The Legal Help You Need

That’s where I come in.

As one of the top DUI attorneys in Utah, I know how and where to make the proper motions which force the prosecutor to prove that all the steps used in your arrest were done properly. If they weren’t, then his case is weakened.

I can’t promise you that I’ll be successful because each case is unique. Maybe the judge assigned to your case is more lenient on drunk driving cases, or maybe he is harsher on them. Maybe there are some things distinctive to your case which are important. However, all things being equal, I think you’ll find that I am well-skilled and that I fiercely protect your rights.

When you retain me you’ll get expert legal help from an attorney who knows how to guide your case through the complexities of the legal system because I’ve done it numerous times.

You’ll be certain you are being treated fairly by the judicial system because I’ll insist:

  • The District Attorney provide us with the name and address of anyone he plans to call as a witness, as well as copies of every written or recorded statements of their testimony. This will allow us to prepare our questions for them.
  • The DA provide us with any information or material he has which would show that you are not guilty of the charges against you, or which may help you get a lighter sentence.
  • On receiving copies of records showing that the equipment used for tests was functioning properly, and that the person giving the tests was properly certified.
  • On proof that you were advised of all of your rights. If you weren’t, the DA’s case may be weakened.

I talk to the District Attorney beforehand to get him to produce his proof and let him know that I will be contesting in court all these points I mentioned. When his case is challenged, he has to take a lot of time producing this material and witnesses.

As you can see, what looks simple gets pretty complex. As your attorney I will look into all ofthese things for you so that you will have the best possible case.
