While you are in a difficult situation, a skilled lawyer will know what can be done to protect your rights so you don't have to face imprisonment and other harsh penalties. A conviction has the potential to change your life forever. With the stakes so high, you cannot afford to put your future in the hands of an attorney that you don't trust. The truth of the matter is that people of all walks of life find themselves in situations where they are facing criminal charges or are suspected of committing a crime. Without aggressive representation, even an innocent person may face a conviction.
A criminal offense is a situation that cannot be ignored. Thankfully, you can face this often-intimidating situation with the confidence of a skilled attorney on your side. At the scene of your arrest, you have the right to refrain from speaking so that you do not unintentionally incriminate yourself. The police are not interested in proving that you did not commit the crime - they are attempting to gather enough evidence against you so a prosecutor can bring criminal charges against you in court. A criminal defense lawyer can protect your rights in the face of this and help ensure you are not wrongfully arrested.
We understand that there are a variety of criminal defense lawyers you could choose to represent you- so why choose us? To begin with, our SLC criminal attorneys have over 50 years of combined legal experience and in the field, which is no minor qualification. Knowledge is helpful, but experience is everything. When you hire an attorney who has handled a wide variety of cases and achieved multiple dismissals and reductions- you can have more confidence when you enter into the courtroom.
We know that you are experiencing a lot of stress and fear- and why not minimize this? Secondly, many attorneys at our firm are former prosecutors. Why does this matter? When you have been on the other side, you are better prepared and more familiar with the arguments that a prosecutor is going to bring up. Because we are better able to predict the evidence a prosecutor will deem valuable and the points he/she will make, we can better craft a strong defense.
As a firm, we are committed to examining every detail surrounding your case- we will leave no stone unturned. The combination of extensive experience, skill and a hard work ethic makes our firm the whole package. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and seek to give each of our clients the best service possible. When criminal charges threaten your livelihood and future, don't make the mistake of securing a less-than-competent criminal defense team.
The sad reality is that thousands of innocent individuals are annually convicted of crimes, merely because the evidence was against them and their criminal defense attorney lacked the experience and skills to adequately defend them. Don't allow yourself to become a part of this statistic- at Rock Mountain Defenders, PC we will strive to uphold your innocence, if you entrust the details of your case to us!
Criminal Offenses We Handle
If you were arrested under suspicion of committing a drug crime, we can help. We have experience with drug charges that range from
possession including marijuana to cocaine. Perhaps you have been charged with driving while under the influence of drugs. The Controlled Substances Act was recently modified in order to include additional penalties and further define illegal narcotics.
According to Utah's Controlled Substances Act,
This bill expands the definition of a controlled substance to include a list of synthetic equivalent cannabinoid substances and their analogs and homologs found in products commonly referred to as "spice"; expands the definition of a controlled substance to include substances and their analogs and homologs found in products referred to as "bath salts;" clarifies that the tetrahydrocannabinols in Schedule I of the Utah Controlled Substances Act include those both naturally and synthetically derived.
These modifications to Utah's Penal Code and Controlled Substances Act in particular may lead to an increase in drug-related arrests in Utah and the Salt Lake City area in particular. While many of these offenses are misdemeanors, some listed in the modification can be classified as felonies.
Our firm also handles DUI cases as well as ones pertaining to other drunk driving related offenses. With police officers cracking down on driving while intoxicated, we can help you during the entire
