Each criminal case has individual needs which may require the fee to be adjusted, either up or down in price. Often, I will tell people that their case is relatively simple and the fee will be much lower than they anticipated. Please come to my office for a free consultation.
During our discussion I will listen to you describe your situation and learn enough about the case to quote you a reasonable price. Often, criminal cases require investigation; these fees will be charged as necessary.
Contact us, and let's discuss your options. We will give you an honest assessment of your case. The initial consultation is completely free.
In Utah, most felony and misdemeanor convictions can be expunged, leaving your record as if the convictions never happened. If you are finished with formal probation, and not facing current charges, Utah law (Utah Code Annotated §77-88-10, §77-88-11, & §77-88-12) allows you to have your misdemeanor and felony convictions expunged.
Typically, felony convictions can be expunged after 7 years. Class "A" misdemeanors can be expunged after 5 years. All other misdemeanors and infractions can be expunged after 3 years. Traffic convictions involving alcohol require 10 years before they are eligible for expungement.

Under Utah law (section §76-3-402(2) an attorney can apply to have your conviction reduced by up to two degrees. For example, a second degree felony could be reduced to a class "A" misdemeanor. A reduction in class by just one degree can reduce the time needed to wait for expungement by several years, plus it can immediately restore rights, such as the right to possess a firearm.
The materials at this site are for informational purposes only and are not intended to be legal advice. Please remember that no attorney-client relationship is established until I have personally reviewed the case. The attorney-client relationship is formed only after a written representation/retainer agreement is signed. Simply sending an e-mail requesting that I take your case does not establish an attorney-client relationship. NOTHING can replace a face-to-face meeting or telephone consultation with an attorney.
