If you are an individual under the age of 18 who has been charged with a crime, you are in both a fortunate and dangerous position.  While judges may generally regard your case with an amount of leniency due to your age, you are also in a position to be burdened with a criminal record. For that reason, it is essential that you retain a criminal defense attorney to represent you for your case who will guide you not only through the judicial process, but through the following expungment of your criminal record, as well.

At The Law Office of Haynes & Fuelling, we specialize in resolving juvenile cases in a way that will leave as little inconveniences for future opportunities as possible.  If you are the guardian of a juvenile who has been charged with vandalism, underage possession of a controlled substance, assault, gang activities, robbery, murder, and so on, contact our office today, and let us work to secure your child’s future.  Not only will we keep you informed of every development in your child’s case, but we may also provide you with special financing opportunities to accommodate your economic needs.

Do not trust your child’s future to a public defender who is interested only in seeing the case closed with as little effort as possible.  Contact The Law Office of Haynes & Fuelling today for a free consultation.

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.  Contact us now to receive a free consultation with an experienced attorney.
