At Dain Smoland, Attorney at Law PLLC, I focus on criminal defense for Drug Crimes such as Marijuana Possession and Drug Paraphernalia; Traffic Crimes; Alcohol Crimes such as DUI and Minor in Possession; Theft; Shoplifting; and Criminal Mischief. I can also help with things related to criminal law, such as Driver’s License Hearings, Expungements, Stalking Injunctions and Protection Orders.
My office is in downtown Salt Lake City, but I take cases anywhere along the Wasatch Front, from Brigham City to Spanish Fork; along the I-80 corridor, from Grantsville to Coalville; the Price and Helper area; and elsewhere in Utah depending on the type of case.
I know that hiring an attorney is a big decision and a major expense for most people, so I work hard to keep my rates affordable for people who aren’t rich, but who don’t qualify for a public defender. I know it can be tempting to just walk in to court, plead guilty, and “get it over with,” but in most situations, a little time and investment up-front can pay off in the future: by getting the charge dismissed, or getting a plea-deal which is much better than the sentence that would have been imposed if you just plead guilty. A good defense attorney may be able to keep a conviction off your record, save your driver’s license, and save you money on fines and other costs.
Don’t hesitate to contact me so we can discuss your case and my services.
