Summary

I love my career as a Criminal Defense Attorney. Every day, I get to defend our Constitutional rights against an excessively punitive and discriminatory criminal "justice" system. In our criminal "justice" system, many people are wrongfully accused, over-charged, over-punished, or simply not afforded basic human respect. I endeavor to help my clients navigate this system. Sometimes this requires me to show a Jury why my client is wrongfully accused. Sometimes this requires me to show a Judge why a search, seizure, or interrogation, violated our Constitution. Sometimes this requires me to work with a Prosecutor to reach a fair and just resolution in a case. I look forward to performing these tasks and others in order to most effectively serve the people whom I represent.

Prior to opening my own practice, I worked at the firm of Langford-Ramos and its predecessor, Langford Legal. I also interned at the Salt Lake Legal Defender's Association, at the Utah Court of Appeals, and at the Hill Air Force Base Office of Legal Counsel. I currently sit on the Utah State Bar's Board for the Young Lawyer's Division as the Chair of a program that provides free representation to people facing eviction and as a Committee Member for a program that provides free legal advice to Veterans. I have been recognized as the 2018 Pro Bono Attorney of the Year and continue to volunteer through the Utah State and Federal Courts.

Prior to practicing law, I served in the United States Marine Corps and the Utah National Guard. My experience as an Infantry Platoon Sergeant, Intelligence Sergeant, and Linguist, helped prepare me to be successful in this career. I have been honored to represent many veterans in my practice.

Legal Answers
19 Questions Answered

Q. If I successfully complete my plea in abeyance, will the misdemeanor A still show up on a background check?
A: Nope, that's the point. However, it will show that you were charged until you expunge the case. Once you get done, contact an attorney to expunge record all together.
Q. I was protesting recently and got arrested and charged with indecent public display.
A: I agree with Ian, Talk with as many Attorneys ASAP. Find one with connections with the Prosecutor's office which has charged you and one that is willing to deal with the license issue. Good luck!
Q. Our13 year old son (who we’ve adopted out of foster care at age 5) has raped our two daughters age 10 and 3.
A: You can hire an attorney, in Utah victim's of crimes have a right to be heard. One thing you should know is that the juvenile justice system sentences offenders for different purposes that adults. In the District court, a criminal sentence is meant to serve retribution or punishment among other goals. In juvenile system, criminal sentences are meant to help the juvenile rehabilitate.
