SALT LAKE CITY CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY
If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime, been arrested, or are simply looking to be informed on matters having to do with criminal law, The Law Office of Haynes & Fuelling can provide the assistance you need. Our attorneys represent clients from the entire Salt Lake area and beyond, regardless of whether the case is new and in the investigatory stage, or if it is nearing conclusion and headed for trial. We offer free consultations and cost assessments, and with our relaxed financing system, we are able to accommodate the financial needs of almost any client.
Once retained, we work tirelessly to protect the reputation and career of our clients, and fight to prevent any potential criminal penalties that could be incurred from being convicted of a crime.
When retained for a new case, our first efforts are directed toward rescheduling the client’s court date to fit the client’s scheduling needs, wherever possible. Our legal team works hand-in-hand with court clerks across the state, and we can generally secure a new court date within 24 hours.
Once an acceptable date has been set for the hearing, we go to work investigating the prosecution’s case. Our attorneys tirelessly scrutinize the details of the case, ensuring that the police did not overreact to the situation, that they had reliable witnesses, that no constitutional rights were violated, and so on. If any weakness exists in the prosecution’s case, we identify them, and when found we use them to minimize the consequences of being charged criminally.
If the prosecution proves unwilling to offer a reasonable agreement - if not dismiss the case outright - we begin to prepare for trial. Keeping the client informed of each development, we secure expert witnesses, prepare transcripts for evidence, hire private investigators, and more. Regardless of the difficulties of the case, we present a formidable and informed defense throughout the trial process, up to and including sentencing.
Finally, if a sentence is imposed, we present the clients with all of the options which they still have available to them, from appealing the sentence to a higher court, to clearing the client's records through expungement. We never consider a case ‘closed,’ until every avenue of defense and recovery have been exhausted.
At The Law Office of Haynes & Fuelling, we are dedicated to providing our clients inside and outside of Utah with a quality criminal defense lawyer at a competitive rate. After more than twenty years of experience defending and prosecuting criminal law throughout the state, we guarantee effective and competent criminal defense in every case we take.
