Aggressive Felony and Misdemeanor Criminal Defense

Let's Discuss Your Criminal Case And Formulate Our Plan Of Action

If it’s a criminal case, YES! Matt has experience with infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. If your case is something from a traffic ticket to homicide, Matt handles it. See for more information.

Extremely likely. Matt was a government attorney handling criminal prosecution of both misdemeanors and felonies for over five years before switching to criminal defense. He has handled thousands of criminal cases at all types of criminal hearings. He has vast experience in criminal law.

Act quickly! You have 10 days from arrest to request a driver’s license hearing with the Utah DLD. At that hearing the officer will testify as to the events surrounding your stop, arrest, and results of chemical test or that you refused chemical test. You have an opportunity to ask the officer questions. If you do nothing, your license will be suspended for 120 days (if your first DUI in 10 years) and longer if this isn’t your first in 10 years or if you refused a chemical test. If you miss the 10 day window to request your hearing you may not get a chance to keep your license. If you hire an attorney, the attorney can request the DLD hearing and represent you at the hearing (ask the officer questions/make argument on your behalf instead of you doing it yourself).Call Matt to discuss your options. See for more information.

We’ll discuss your charges, the possible penalties if convicted of the charges, range of possible outcomes, the facts (as best you remember them), potential defenses, and we’ll plot a path forward. Matt will answer any questions you may have.

It depends on the type of case and the ultimate goal of the client (plea vs. trial). A trial requires much more time and, as such, the fees are slightly more.  Matt charges flat rates (not hourly fees) and will work with clients on flexible payment plans. Matt strives to keep his fees reasonable by having low overhead costs and will work to negotiate a favorable settlement should you be inclined to resolve your case. You should not forgo quality representation based on ability to pay. Contact Matt, he’ll work with you.

If you were arrested for, received a citation for, or received a charging document for a crime, contact Matt for your free consultation. It’s important for many offenses (DUI especially) to act quickly to protect your rights and minimize consequences. Use the form to contact Matt or email Matt at and he’ll get back to you asap.
