Utah’s Premier Criminal Defense Law Firm

Snow Christensen & Martineau’s Criminal Defense Team provides vigorous defense of individuals and businesses who are under suspicion, have not been formally charged, or who have been charged with a criminal activity. Criminal defense law consists of the legal protections afforded to people who have been accused of committing a crime. Under the Constitution, everyone accused of a crime has the right to a lawyer’s defense. 

Crimes are committed by professionals, business people and public officials surrounding a variety of probabilities and circumstances.  Some involve a form of theft or fraudulent representation for the purpose of obtaining money under misleading circumstances.  These cases are notoriously complex and require representation of highly experienced lawyers.

Criminal charges demand a swift and strong defense.  SCM’s criminal defense team is exceedingly experienced and skilled in representing clients facing charges.   We focus on ensuring our accused clients are justly represented in a wide range of criminal actions.

Our team includes a former federal prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice who has tried over 25 jury trials to verdict; and a former federal magistrate judge with 20 years of bench experience, having tried or presided over more than 150 jury trials.
