My name is Catherine Cleveland. As a former judge and a Salt Lake City criminal defense lawyer, I represent clients accused of felonies and misdemeanors in Utah state and federal courts.
I use more than 15 years of experience as a lawyer to achieve extremely favorable results for my clients. Over the years, I have seen thousands of criminal defense cases handled in Utah Courts, so I know what results others have received in situations like yours.

I have an in-depth knowledge of local Courts and procedures to help you understand what to expect. I can then work with you to develop an effective criminal defense strategy designed to achieve the best possible results in negotiations with prosecutors or at trial.

I will agressively fight for you with any criminal charge you are accused of to obtain the best possible outcome.

My practice is 100% criminal defense. I work in both Juvenile and Adult courts.
