Defending you against aggravated assault, homicide, and other violent crimes

Consequences of violent crime

Because these crimes often result in extensive injury to others or death, the penalties are harsh (usually a long prison sentence). This is especially the case if a firearm was used in the crime. Our attorney will utilize a number of resources to help a client. These include private investigators, forensic specialists, and personal interviews with all of the key witnesses. Our attorneys use the facts collected from these sources to challenge evidence and identify contradictory testimonies in order to protect the freedom and rights of our clients. Call our law firm today if you have been arrested for a violent crime and need to receive criminal defense in Utah.
