I was arrested and felt as though I had no hope. I was especially worried that I would end up in prison. But Wasatch Defense Attorneys saved my future! They worked hard on my case, and were able to get my charges dismissed altogether.
Accused of a serious sex offense, I was about to lose my job, my family, my reputation … basically my entire life I had worked so hard to build. Attorney Craig R. Chlarson stepped in and listened to me, learning all of the facts. He also believed me … he believed in my innocence … when all others turned their backs on me. Craig knew I was innocent, and he took my case to trial. At trial, I was found NOT GUILTY. And, after my acquittal, Craig was able to actually have my record sealed.
I was worried and alone, and seeking urgent help. I called Attorney Craig R. Chlarson while I was awaiting trial in jail. He immediately came down to the jail to interview me.
Within a few hours, I was out on bail. Within a few days, I was able to review the police reports in my case. Within the first few weeks, I was prepared to go to trial. Within a few months, Craig was able to settle my case favorably – no jail, no felony conviction, a new life. Finally, after I completed probation, he was able to get my charges reduced. Shortly after, I was actually able to have my record sealed. Today, I enjoy an incredible career. My family has healed. And I no longer carry a criminal arrest record.
I had been in a toxic relationship for years. One evening, after a verbal argument, I was arrested for domestic violence. Attorney Craig R. Chlarson stepped in, clarified the facts for the prosecutors, and my CHARGES WERE DROPPED. Thanks to Craig, I avoided all the negative consequences of a domestic violence conviction.
I was addicted to pills, and, when I couldn’t afford pills any longer, I turned to heroin to satisfy my addiction. I was ultimately arrested selling drugs and charged with a serious felony. Attorney Craig R. Chlarson came to my rescue … he was able to negotiate a resolution with the prosecutor, who dropped my felony charge down to a misdemeanor. Furthermore, Craig enrolled me in drug court which provided addiction treatment. Today, I’m nearly three years sober and clean … and my criminal record has been sealed. My background is now completely clean too. And I don’t have to worry about job interviews or housing applications anymore.
I was suffering from bi-polar disorder. Along the way, I discontinued my medications against my physician’s advice. It wasn’t long after this that I was arrested for shoplifting. Rather than a trial, my particular case needed understanding and treatment of my mental illness. Instead of jail, Craig got me enrolled in mental health court. I resumed my medications, and reclaimed my normal, happy, life. Thank you Craig, for restoring sanity to my life, and keeping me out of jail.
