CRIMINAL LAW ATTORNEYS IN UTAH

Richards Brandt is prepared and ready to go to work on behalf of those accused of crimes of all levels and severities. With experience on both sides of the criminal law, our attorneys have the expertise to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each case and the skill and tenacity to secure the best possible result.

The criminal justice system can be daunting and often makes those accused of crimes feel powerless. Our attorneys are dedicated to helping accused individuals take that power back. The right to counsel and the presumption of innocence are two of our most sacred and deeply rooted constitutional principles. Standing up for these values, we demand accountability from law enforcement by way of suppression or exclusion of evidence, as well as uncovering critical information through independent inquiry and investigation. We also hold the government’s feet to the fire on issues of witness and law enforcement credibility and transparency, and we are prepared to enlist qualified and capable experts to counter spurious claims and to return balance to the process.

The categories of cases we defend include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Minor Traffic
• DUIs
• Drug Crimes
• Property Crimes
• Registry Violations
• Domestic Violence
• Protective Orders
• Assaults
• Sexual Offenses
• Homicides

With a reputation among prosecutors and judges of integrity and ability, our skilled litigators are positioned either to deftly negotiate fair and prompt resolutions or to put the government to its burden before a jury of our clients’ piers. And for those who feel they have already been wrongly convicted or sentenced, our attorneys have the experience and legal prowess to litigate orders to show cause and to prosecute criminal appeals.

Shareholder, Cybersecurity Section Chair and Business Practice Chair

A: To decide which entity is right for you, we look at: liability, taxation, and maintenance. Both corporations and LLC’s have limited personal liability—this means that owners are usually not responsible for business debts. However, corporations and LLC’s are taxed very differently—corporations are classified as a separate taxable entity, whereas LLC’s are typically taxed as a pass-through entity (unless you choose otherwise). And corporations and LLC’s have different levels of maintenance—LLC’s have fewer reporting requirements and can operate solely with members acting as the managers. Conversely, corporations are required to hold certain annual meetings, keep certain records, and appoint boards and officers to manage the company for the stockholders. Every situation is unique so we recommend that you consult with an attorney in making your decision. Contact our firm, Richards Brandt, if we can help you decide which entity is right for you.
