Jeremy Atwood offers criminal law defense from his firm. Being charged with a crime can significantly impact a person’s life. We can help you get a fair trial with the best possible defense. At your initial consultation, we will find the best course of action to get a positive outcome in your case. We can work for a plea deal through the prosecutor to avoid a lengthy trial or we can take your case to trial if there is a good likelihood of an acquittal.
Our clinic specializes in multiple different types of criminal charges. During your initial consultation, we will determine the possible defense for your case.
The most common type of defense for drug crimes is the Fourth Amendment. Occasionally, an investigating officer might not correctly secure a search warrant. In that situation, that evidence can be suppressed. A suppression order will be issued and, often, your case will be dismissed outright.
Another common type of defense falls under innocent vs. constructive possession. The prosecutor must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the defendant willfully possessed the controlled substance.
It is very important to secure a criminal defense attorney if you are charged with a drug crime. Certain controlled substances, such as methamphetamines, can be enhanced at the prosecutor’s discretion.
Two of the most common alcohol crimes in Utah are driving under the influence and public intoxication. DUI charges in Utah are filed as either a class B misdemeanor, class A misdemeanor, or a felony, depending upon past convictions. In certain situations, a criminal defense attorney can get a DUI reduced to a DWI. Common DUI defenses in Utah include a suppression order if a traffic stop was made illegally, checking to make sure that FST tests were administered correctly, and calling the Breathalyzer test into question.
Public Intoxication (PI) is a very nebulous area of law in Utah. Usually, the case will hinge upon whether the defendant was intoxicated “to a degree that the person may endanger the person or another.”
White-collar crimes are nonviolent and financially motivated. Types of charges like these can include:
• Financial Fraud
• Credit Card Fraud
• Identity Theft
• Healthcare Fraud
Utah recently passed a white-collar crime registry, so securing an attorney is vital if you are charged with a white-collar crime.
