You may feel like you have nowhere to turn. You’re worried and anxious because you’re afraid you might go to jail. You could also have a permanent stain on your public record. Or, you might not be able to move past this and get back to how your life was before you faced charges.
Understandably, you might feel incredibly stressed out and above all else, alone.
But you’re not. Our Salt Lake City team, Conyers & Nix, is here to help.
We have wide-range experience defending clients charged with felonies and misdemeanors in District Courts and Justice Courts. Whether you’re already charged with a crime or about to land in legal trouble, we will not only protect your legal rights–we will be your advocate through this difficult and daunting process. We bring extensive experience and effective advocacy to every case to support your individual needs and concerns.
We only practice criminal defense; we have exclusively practiced it for over a decade. We’ve defended thousands of individuals against prosecution and have been successful in achieving the goals of our clients. We don’t just fight for your legal case–we fight for you.
Never speak to police without an attorney present. Never! If you are being investigated for a crime, call us immediately! An attorney will speak to the police on your behalf, get more details about the investigation, and then recommend whether a police interview is in your best interest. Often, an interview will not help and will only give police evidence that will help them and hurt you.
Even if you are innocent, talk to us to help you decide whether you should speak with police. If we determine that an interview would be helpful, we will go with you and prevent you from making incriminating statements.
Speaking to police without an attorney doesn’t make you look innocent—it makes you look unprepared, inexperienced, and leaves you vulnerable. Without an attorney, the detective will ask you hard questions, make you look foolish, and frame innocent facts as clues of guilt. The presence of an attorney will keep police on their best behavior.
Questions About Working With Conyers & Nix
What is your typical response time?
We are here when you need us, no matter what. When you send us an email or leave us a voicemail, we’ll get back to you within 24 hours. We know that time is of the essence, which is why we get back to you usually on the same day or within a day at the latest. And when it’s time to go to court, we remind you and make sure you are prepared for the day so that you can hopefully achieve your ideal outcome.
How likely are you to bring my case to trial?
While some lawyers will advise you to plead out and avoid a trial, we take clients to trial as often as we can. Then our clients have a fighting chance of having their charges reduced or dropped. We are aggressive, assertive, and we’ll advocate for you every step of the way.
Will you help me receive a not-guilty verdict?
We cannot promise specific results, but we work hard for not-guilty verdicts. We want you to feel satisfied in your decision to seek out representation with our firm. At the end of the day, we want you to know that we did everything possible to help you.
We can assist clients who are charged with sex crimes like sexual battery, rape, lewdness, forcible sexual abuse, sodomy, revenge porn, voyeurism, sexual abuse of a minor, and sexual conduct of a minor.
If you are facing charges for a drug or marijuana crime, we can represent you. We’ve worked with clients who are charged with driving with measurable controlled substance (DMCS), possession with intent to distribute, drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana (and other drugs), and possession of a controlled substance.
We represent clients who are charged with domestic violence, aggravated assault, assault, battery, electronic harassment, criminal trespass, child abuse, homicide, criminal mischief, robbery, stalking, kidnapping, and aggravated burglary. We’ll ask you questions about the incident to determine how to proceed.
Alcohol & DUI Crimes
If you’re charged with an alcohol crime, we are here to help. We represent clients who are charged with crimes related to DUIs, underage drinking, public intoxication, and laws specific to Utah like crossing state lines with alcohol and drinking past 1 a.m. We are well-versed in Utah’s drinking laws, which are some of the strictest in the US.
Do you have a mistake from your past that you’d like to erase? Do you want your past convictions to disappear and not show up on background checks? We can help you with the process of cleaning your record and erasing your legal mistakes.
Other Related Services
If you are charged with any other type of crime, we can help you. We work with clients who are facing charges related to animals, such as having a dog/animal at large, cruelty to animals, fishing without a license, and destruction of wildlife.
We also represent clients who are charged with protest defense, failure to stop at the command of law enforcement, and probation violations. We aim to resolve charges with an expungement, which means that a crime is taken off of your public record. Then you won’t have to stress about future employers or anyone else seeing that you are charged.
