Marijuana Possession Can Still Have Serious Penalties
Surveys show that millions of Americans have tried marijuana, but that still doesn’t make it legal in the state of Utah. If you have been arrested for a marijuana-related crime, you could face serious penalties.
At my Salt Lake City law office, I take your marijuana possession defense seriously. Using more than 15 years of experience, I help people throughout Utah avoid consequences like large fines, community service, probation and jail time.

Use and Out-of-State Visitors
Marijuana is not legal in Utah. Even if you are legally allowed to possess it in California, the law does not extend to this state. Unfortunately, all too many people fail to realize this before being arrested in Utah for possession of marijuana or possession of paraphernalia.
Many have been arrested after traffic stops on highways, including Interstate 80, Interstate 70 and Interstate 15. Often, they were traveling through Utah on their way to other places in the United States.
My clients have the benefit of working directly with the experienced lawyer they hired. Because I use the latest technology, my representation is convenient and affordable. If you are from outside of Utah, I can tailor my services to help accommodate you and your family. Making representation not just effective, but also convenient and compassionate, is one of my goals.
