Although marijuana has been legalized in a number of states, with other states approving the use of medical marijuana, in the state of Utah, possession of marijuana remains an offense. Even if the substance was purchased legally in other states, its use or possession is still illegal in the State of Utah and prosecutors continue to pursue drug crimes aggressively. Over the years, we have represented thousands of clients charged with a variety of drug offenses, including trafficking.
The risks clients face in drug offenses are monumental. Drug offense convictions have the ability to dramatically alter people’s lives. A drug conviction can lead to denial of employment, voting rights, immigration status, concealed weapon permits, and other serious problems. It is important to hire counsel with vast experience in defending drug crimes. Our firm’s efforts have resulted in dismissal of serious drug trafficking cases, acquittals at trial, and return of seized property and money. It is very important that you hire counsel as soon as possible in a drug case, even before charges are filed. We have successfully negotiated cases where charges were not filed and property released.
Over the past few years, law enforcement has targeted freeways within the state of Utah under a program entitled “Operation Saturation.” Under this program, numerous law enforcement officers target certain highways and stop and detain any vehicle with out-of-state plates. Many times, the stops are not warranted and we have been able to get charges dismissed after suppressing the evidence. We take a personal interest in each and every client we represent. We have over 100 years combined experience in defending cases. Some of our attorneys are former prosecutors and understand how prosecutions work and know how best to defend the cases. We make it our mission to protect your constitutional rights.
