Your Utah Defense Attorney for Firearm Offenses


Conviction of a Utah firearm offense can have serious and long-lasting consequences. In addition to fines and jail time, a firearms conviction remains on your criminal record; prospective employers, colleges, and anyone who performs a background check on you will be able to see it. To avoid these consequences, you need an attorney who knows how to expose weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, and who will fight to have charges dismissed or for an acquittal at trial.
