Cliff Venable has over 12 years of experience successfully defending those accused of crimes in Utah.

With Utah’s aggressive .05 limit, more people are at a higher risk of getting a DUI and losing their license. It is important to contact an attorney immediately because you only have 10 days to request a hearing with the DMV to contest the suspension of your drivers license.

From misdemeanor criminal mischief to aggravated kidnapping, these crimes can have far reaching effects on your livelihood and freedom. Whether it’s intensive pretrial investigations, motions, or experts, every incident that results in a violent/DV charge is unique and may call for a different approach and strategy.

Although marijuana should be legal in Utah, it is not. The consequences of having a drug related charge in one’s background can be dire, so it is important to have attorneys that understand your 4th Amendment Constitutional rights against an unlawful search and seizure.

Theft related crimes are enhanceable, meaning with each conviction comes the possibility of a higher-degree of charge and a steeper sentence. Thus, it is imperative to have a resolution that mitigates the possibility of enhancement.

Just being charged with a sexually related crime can be devastating to one’s life. We understand the complexities and sensitive nature of such a charge. Investigation and preparation are paramount in building a good defense against these types of accusations.

These cases require a detail-oriented approach to meticulously dissect the evidence and prepare a defense. As soon as you know you are under an investigation for white collar crime you should immediately contact Salt City Defense.

Having a constant reminder of a past mistake can be haunting and the expungement process can be confusing and lengthy. With a court ordered expungement, it’s like starting over with a clean slate.

Getting a successful reduction on a charge can significantly alter a person’s criminal background, which can lead to better jobs and opportunities. We are well versed in the litigation process surrounding Utah State Code § 76-3-402.
