Utah Criminal Defense Law Firm

If you or a loved one have been arrested, there are many choices that must be made, and there is usually some sense of urgency in making those choices. If you are before a judge in the Juvenile Court, please follow this link, otherwise please read on.

Should I Hire an Attorney?

One of the decisions to be made is whether to hire an attorney. If you choose not to hire an attorney, you are choosing to navigate the course with a blindfold. Before law school, I remember trying to fight a traffic ticket without help. I was completely overwhelmed by what the prosecutor gave me. It seemed like nothing was written in English, or, at least, not understand English. Everything was pursuant to State v. Smith, or State v. Doe. I was lost. Then I went to law school. Now I know what these cases mean, and I understand how they apply to the cases that I am working on. On top of the confusing case law, there are more than 40 rules that must be followed in the Rules of Criminal Procedure, for example, and more if an appeal is needed.

If you choose to hire the right attorney, you will be guided through your court process with someone who has been there before. Judges can be intimidating, as can prosecutors. This is doubly true when your freedom is on the line, because then not only are you in unfamiliar circumstances, but the stakes are extraordinarily high. A misstep in court can land you in jail, in prison, and/or with hundreds of dollars in fines.

As you may know, the police make mistakes, as do prosecutors.

A problem, if you choose to go it alone, is that you may not know what those mistakes are, and almost certainly will not know how to capitalize on mistakes that may have been made. Not all cases have mistakes, and not all mistakes can be capitalized on, but it would be potentially life-changing if a mistake were missed that could have kept you out of prison. This is one major benefit of hiring an attorney to get you through your days in court, but there are tens of others, not to mention the simple fact that you will be able to relax when you know that you have a competent, experienced attorney leading you through the maze of judicial jargon, case law, and trial appointments.

When I needed help Chris was there for me and gave me great advice on how to properly handle my issues. He even said that they might be able to do payment arrangements for me because I'm on SSI

Yolanda Elizabeth Benjamin

The best law firm in the state, if not the country! Chris was not only knowledgeable but also very professional.

Darrel Atkin

I have worked with Chris and some of his other associates several times. I have always found them to be reasonably priced, responsive, and true to their word of treating the client as an individual as opposed to a number. I have recommended the Ault Firm to friends and family and will continue to do so.
