I've been working with Lane for almost three years to help my son who is in prison. It's easy to be forgotten when so much time passes, but Lane kept us in mind and did as much as he could to help.

They stood with me through the whole process and even got me bail when everyone said I never would. They also did such an amazing job that in the end the case was dropped. If you need someone to have your back come to them.

I don't think I have enough space here to fully detail how much I appreciate these guys! Here are a few highlights from my experience:Anytime I had a question and reached out to Lane, he responded immediately. I always knew what was happening throughout the process and I had the information I needed.The team provided very realistic expectations for the outcome of my case and I never felt like I was being under-represented. I believe they always had my best intentions in mind while working on my case and provided a sense of calm during a very stressful time which was a relief for me and my family.Their level of professionalism was very confidence inspiring and I am grateful that I choose them to represent me!Edit: even months after my case Ashley has been incredibly helpful!

I want to give a praise report for Wasatch Defense Lawyers. We hired them to defend our son but it turned out that it was a short term experience. We had put up a large sum of money and so my wife and I decided to askfor a Partial refund. They granted that to us. To me this shows good business principles and integrity. Thank you Wasatch defense lawyers.

That’s all you can ask for in any company- especially a law office that you expect to have your best interests at heart. Don’t hesitate to call Wasatch Defense if you’re in a jam.

I've never felt compelled to write a google review before, but since the reviews on here are the reason I chose to go with this firm I wanted to add one to help anyone in a similar position as myself. Obviously anyone in need of these kinds of services is going through a terrible time in their life and the last thing you need is to go with a firm that will only increase your stress. From the time I walked through the doors for my consultation I knew this was the best place to be. I was immediately treated with the respect and dignity I had felt was lost to me, but to them I was a human like anyone else that was just in need of help and support, and they didn't hesitate to offer that to me. Through the entire process I always felt heard and understood and I knew that I had an entire team at my back helping me through the hardest time in my life. I wouldn't hesitate to go with them at any point in the future or to recommend them to any family or friend in need of their help. Do yourself the biggest favor you possibly could and get this team on your side.

Navigating the intricacies of legal situations can be a daunting task, especially when compounded by challenging circumstances. In such times, it's a blessing to encounter a professional like Lane. From our very first meeting, it was evident that Lane is not just knowledgeable but deeply empathetic and understanding.Lane took the time to truly grasp the complexities of my situation, lending not just his expertise but also an attentive ear and a reassuring presence. It's rare to come across someone who can seamlessly blend professionalism with genuine compassion, but Lane does exactly that. He ensured I received the representation I deserved and diligently worked to get my situation resolved.To anyone in need of paralegal services, I wholeheartedly recommend Lane. His dedication, warmth, and expertise are unparalleled. Thank you, Lane, for turning what could have been an overwhelming experience into a manageable and even reassuring one. Your dedication and support have made all the difference.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to the team who assisted me with my legal questions over the phone. Their prompt response and willingness to help me comprehend the legal complexities truly impressed me.Not only did they patiently explain the legal issues I was facing, but they also took the time to clarify why any misjudgment or misunderstanding on my part would not result in criminal charges. This reassurance alleviated a great deal of stress and anxiety that had been weighing on me.I have learned a valuable lesson through this experience - the importance of good intentions being misunderstood and the potential disastrous consequences that can arise. However, thanks to the guidance and support of this remarkable team, I now have a better understanding of how to navigate similar situations in the future without jeopardizing myself.I am incredibly grateful for their expertise and dedication to helping individuals like myself. The fact that they have agreed to meet with me next week, free of charge, to further educate me on how I can continue assisting others while safeguarding myself from potential jeopardy is truly remarkable.Once again, thank you to the entire team for their outstanding assistance, unwavering support, and for helping me find peace of mind in a challenging situation.

I've been working with Ashley at Wasatch Defense Lawyers and they are absolutely incredible. Ashley is very thorough, attentive, and prompt - she's been wonderful to work with, and my legal matters are on their way to being resolved. I was very confused with the court systems and their fees/requirements when I made the decision to hire a lawyer, and every penny has been money well spent. 10/10 would recommend Wasatch Defense!

The Wasatch Defense Lawyers are the best. Special shout outs to attorneys Scott and Paul, who were there for my son since the beginning of his nightmare and I also want to thank the lead paralegal, Lane who helped to ease my nerves as well as my families. We do not live in Utah, nor do we know anyone in that state, but it was a blessing that I found them for a very serious situation. For anyone that finds themselves in need of great legal representation in Utah, please contact this firm. They are upfront and will let you know the worst case scenario as well as best case scenarios when it comes to your legal needs. They are honest and will not lead you wrong. Again, I want to thank the entire defense team for having our backs.

Wasatch defense lawyers were with me in every step of my DUI conviction and truly cared, helped, and offered support. Its very challenging to put into words everything that happened especially considering that I had to also make enormous life changes as well. Firstly, getting a DUI is a very challenging experience. Paul Johnson, the lawyer whom I worked with, set me up with so much success in the realm of emotional support that I cannot express enough of my heart-felt thanks. We had so much down to earth conversations in between our deliberations, and most importantly he was honest about how all this works. Essentially, getting a DUI is an incredibly idiotic thing to do, and you must reexamine your life and change who you are to get past it. Paul helped me so immensely in the early months of my sobriety and talking to him about it was so uplifting. During that last court date, where we got everything sorted out what he told me in person really hit home. He told me that he saw that I was a person willing to change and accept what I did. That alone has continued to drive me to sobriety to this day.Its odd to describe a service in such an emotional way, but honestly the entire process has a lot of emotion to it. Even the people working here that are not lawyers are equally valuable in all the support I needed. There are some hard truths to getting a DUI, and its not easy but I can say for certain that this would be the first organization that I would recommend to anyone in a situation like this.

Tyler handled my case quickly and efficiently. He was the second attorney I hired. The first attorney made me weary. As soon as I spoke with Tyler I felt better. Two weeks later all of my problems were gone and I can’t thank him enough. The weight lifted off my shoulders allowed a breath I hadn’t had in months. Thank you again Tyler, I really, really appreciate you.

How Your Criminal Defense Attorney Protects Your Rights 

If you find yourself entangled in the Utah state or U.S. federal trial process, hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer will become the most important thing you do to protect yourself. It is a decision that often stands between defendants remaining free, without a criminal record, and being convicted of a serious crime and receiving the state’s most severe punishments. An experienced defense attorney knows how to defend all your rights and works to create the best possible strategy for winning your case.

Your lawyer guides you through the Utah court system and stands up for you in court. Your attorney manages your case to ensure that all state and federal laws are observed and that all court rules are followed meticulously throughout the legal process. That prevents having your case delayed, postponed, or having you penalized due to mismanagement of the process.

If you are facing federal charges, your case becomes even more serious. You will need the best federal criminal defense lawyer available to navigate the U.S. district court system and work to build a winning defense for you.
