An Aggressive Defense Designed to Protect Your Rights

As a female attorney in a male-dominated field, I have been able to carve a niche in the Utah legal community by defending primarily men who have been accused of sex offenses and other serious criminal charges.

I promise nothing less than the most aggressive courtroom advocacy you will find.

Skilled Defense Against Serious Criminal Charges

If you or a family member is currently facing criminal charges, consider this when you choose an attorney to represent you:

  • Communication between a lawyer and a client is very important. Your criminal defense is an active process. Defense and prosecution actions are going on every day and you should be fully informed at all times.
  • Courtroom experience is critical. There are well-informed attorneys who simply lack the trial experience in important criminal cases. Select someone who has focused on criminal defense for a significant period of time.
  • Do not ignore chemistry. You are going to put your future in someone else's hands and spending a great deal of time with them while your defense is being prepared. All else being equal, wouldn't you rather hire someone who is easy to work with and with whom you get along?
