Save me from stress... I was going to be down the hole with a felon for weed for visiting from california and i was so stresseed out because i wanted to go home... The case made me live in utah temp (which i still do due to bill from the court) but he allowed me to stay home and continue working and not get any jail time... He is very professional, and i really highly recommend him as a lawyer due to the fact he is great and represents his clients with a passion, as it felt like with me...

Very professional I was charged in Salt Lake with a crime that was going to cost me my drivers license because of it. I was referred to William by a friend of mine who told me that William would take good care of me. I am so thankful that I did because William was absolutely amazing. He was always available and answered all of my questions really fast. Sometimes I didn't want to ask a questen and sound dumb, but he always talked to instead of down to me and didn't make me feel dumb. William was great at explaining everything so that I could understand it. I was able to keep my license and my job thanks to William. I have already referred another client to him and if anyone asks I will definitely tell them to contact William.

In addition to fighting for his clients in the courtroom, William is also actively involved in making changes at the legislative level.

Legal Answers
32 Questions Answered
Q. Can a third degree felony of disarming a peace officers energy device be expunged?
A: Yes, it can. Here is BCI's website with some information on expungements. https://bci.utah.gov/expungements/
Q. Can a judge grant you an early dismissal with a Plea and Abeyance?
A: Yes, it is possible. However, it is unlikely. Your best chance is to get the prosecutor to stipulate first and then ask the judge to do it. I've done this many times.
Q. Can a plaintiff without representation request a plea in abeyance from an attorney? What would they need to provide?
A: The plaintiff is the city/state that is prosecuting you. You would be the defendant. You can always represent yourself and contact the prosecutor to see if they will offer you a plea deal (a plea in abeyance is a type of plea deal).
