Experienced Utah DUI Attorneys

Defense of a Utah DUI or alcohol-related charge can be quite challenging. The main witnesses against you are the police. There is scientific evidence from the breath test and/or the blood tests being presented against you. The video tape of your arrest, the officer’s testimony, and your performance on the Standard Field Sobriety tests may also present damaging evidence against you.

The first thing you need to know is that, if you want to preserve your driving privileges, you need to request a hearing with the Driver License Division within 10 days of your arrest. Learn more about this process here.

Our firm focuses heavily on the defense of those charged with misdemeanor 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. We have obtained much of the same training as police officers in the detection of drunk driving in Utah and the administration of the field sobriety tests. This allows us to use the officer’s training against them in your defense.

We also have Utah’s FIRST attorney who is Board Certified in DUI Defense (one of only two attorneys in Utah)—Jason Schatz. Learn what it means to be Board Certified by the National College for DUI Defense.

Note: We only handle Utah cases. If you have a case or charge in another state, please contact an attorney who is licensed to practice law in that state.

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!
