With Utah DUI laws in place, being able to effectively defend against alcohol-related DUI charges in Utah can be quite challenging, especially since alcohol isn’t the only way you can get a DUI. This is because the main witnesses against you are the police, and there is scientific evidence from the breath test and/or blood test being presented against you. Some of this evidence includes the testimony from the police officer, any video recording of your arrest, and the results from your Standard Field Sobriety tests which can all present damaging evidence against you. Utah laws are very strict with DUI offenders, meaning that if you have been repeatedly caught with a DUI you could become an alcohol restricted driver. This is when you need a DUI defense attorney. After you are charged with a DUI, be sure to submit a request for a driver’s license hearing within 10 days of your arrest.
If you want to retain your driving privileges, you need to contact the Driver License Division within 10 days of your arrest and request a hearing. Keep in mind that going through the hearing process can take a lot of time and, with all the forms, can be a bit confusing. However, our qualified Utah DUI attorneys are well versed and experienced in seamlessly flowing through the process for you. Meanwhile, take some time and read through our DUI defense in Utah page and learn preparation you can take during this process. As a minor charged with a DUI, learn more about the consequences and driving privileges you may face. If you are a commercial driver charged with a DUI, Schatz, Anderson & Associates can help you keep your professional license.
Our attorneys focus heavily on defending against misdemeanor charges and felony offenses of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) (sometimes called “driving while intoxicated” or DWI in other states), as well as other alcohol-related crimes such as ignition interlock violations. To understand the entire process that our clients go through, our DUI defense attorneys in Utah have voluntarily attended the majority of the same training as police officers in detecting drunk drivers and how to administer the field sobriety tests. This helps us use the officer’s training against them in your defense. If you have fled an officer after being pulled over for a DUI, learn about the criminal charges associated.
We also have Jason Schatz – Utah’s FIRST attorney (one of only two attorneys in Utah) who is Board Certified in DUI Defense. Learn what it means to be Board Certified by the National College for DUI Defense.
We have a fully staffed knowledgeable, experienced legal team ready to help you.

Attorney Jason Schatz says:
“My partner, Steve Anderson, and I started our firm over ten years ago. I would say during the past ten years, I’ve had approximately 150 DUI cases a year. In total, I’ve handled over 1,500 DUI cases. Steve has probably represented about 75 a year, so there’s another 750 cases. Plus we have three other attorneys, so between the five of us, we’ve done well over 2,000 DUI cases. Add to that our advanced field sobriety and roadside detection training. Now that is a lot of experience and knowledge in one firm!”
