Building the strongest possible defense is essential if you are charged with a crime of any kind. Zachary has access to resources that can help you with your case. He understands the importance of gathering and evaluating evidence and building a defense in your favor.

Every case is different and your defense should be based on the details of the specific accusations against you. Obviously, an Ogden, UT attorney will not handle a white-collar crime, in the same manner, they would a DUI or an assault accusation. Zachary has experience dealing with a wide variety of criminal charges and will ensure your defense is custom-built to provide you with the strongest possibility of winning.
Sometimes, it is impossible to win your case outright. In many instances, prosecutors use legal tactics to get a conviction and sometimes this is in the defendant’s best interest. A plea deal can result in you serving less jail time or serving no jail time at all, even if you did manage to find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
However, before negotiating or accepting a plea deal, it is important to have a defense attorney on your side who understands how to negotiate the best possible deal for you. Your life depends on the skills of your attorney and this is the wrong time to cut corners or try to handle things on your own.
