LOOKING FOR A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY?
There aren’t many things worse than being accused of a crime that you didn’t commit. A conviction can haunt you for decades. Convicted criminals can have trouble securing a loan, finding a job, and even applying for a passport. And although you’re guaranteed a public defender, you are NOT guaranteed an elite public defender.
An elite defense attorney can be your best ally. Private defense lawyers (like those of us at Utah Legal Team) have a vested interest in helping you win in court. We will do everything in our power to help you avoid a wrongful conviction, assist you in navigating this difficult situation, and help you regain control of your life.

Do I have to speak to the police after I’ve been arrested?
No. The US Constitution (and both federal and state laws) don’t require you to speak to police when you’ve been arrested, except for giving basic identification information. If you’ve been arrested, contact an attorney immediately.
What does a criminal law firm in Spanish Fork Utah do, exactly?
A criminal defense lawyer’s objective is to defend you when you’ve been charged with a crime (but not yet convicted in court). Experienced attorneys will have a better chance at convincing a jury that you’re innocent. Need a Utah criminal law firm? Utah Legal Team wants to help.
Why is it so important to find a great lawyer?
While you are guaranteed a public defender, you are NOT guaranteed a skilled or enthusiastic one. Hiring an experienced and passionate attorney could mean the difference between an innocent and guilty verdict. Looking for Utah criminal defense lawyers? Utah Legal Team has your back.
There are several important questions to ask. How long will you have to wait before going to court? What potential penalties will there be if you’re convicted? Have they handled cases like yours before?
Judges are less inclined to allow you to switch attorneys when you’re assigned a public defender. That’s another benefit of hiring a private defense attorney—if you’re not satisfied with their performance, you can find another one.
Looking for a Utah criminal defense attorney? Utah Legal Team is here to help. Criminal defense lawyers exist for a reason—your case’s prosecutor will likely be skilled and determined. Defendants who represent their own cases statistically see worse results than those who hire a defense lawyer.
What should I expect from a good criminal defense lawyer?
Your criminal defense lawyer should have deep knowledge of the law and should also have experience defending people against similar charges to the ones you’re facing. He or she should also be experienced in the court where your charges were filed. Need a Utah criminal defense lawyer? Utah Legal Team has your back.
