A marijuana charge in Utah, much like a DUI, can result in the suspension of your license for a period of time. Even if you were not driving, your license can be suspended for smoking weed, it sounds crazy but it is true. Many people just passing through the state are cited for possession and paraphernalia charges after an often overzealous officer decided to search their vehicle following a minor traffic stop.

Whatever the case may be, a Utah Criminal Defense Attorney in our office can help.

It is not uncommon for some individuals to find themselves facing a domestic violence charge, a protective order, and a divorce all at the same time. Perhaps you were involved in argument with your spouse and he or she called the police and things spiraled out of control from there. You were charged with assault or domestic violence in the presence of a child. Your soon to be ex filed for a protective order and then later files for a divorce in Utah. Salcido Law Firm has dealt with issues just like this numerous times and understands the best possible way to represent a person on each side of the equation. If you were served with a protective order, you need to be aware of the potential consequences such an action brings. A protective order can result in the loss of certain state licenses, gun owning privileges, and may carry negative employment repercussions as more and more employers are checking backgrounds for these types of issues. A person served with an ex parte protective order needs to understand what the terms of the documents mean and should consult immediately with a Salt Lake City Divorce Attorney. Violating a protective order can result in criminal charge so be careful to strictly adhere to the terms of the orders.



Read what our clients say about us..

I am so grateful that I went to Salcido Law Firm for my divorce. I was concerned about all the paper work and being overwhelmed with decisions and all the complicated stuff. I was so surprised when I got the forms to fill out. They were so easy to fill out!!! They also covered every single one of my concerns. They explained everything so there was no questions. I felt very confident with them representing me. They were very professional and proactive. Thank you SLF I would highly recommend you to anyone.
I contacted Salcido Law Firm to help with settling a Landlord/Tenant Dispute. I have tried representing myself in the past but never came out with the results that I wanted. I ended up working with one of the partners (Jerry) and he was very professional & knowledgeable. I came out of the lawsuit a lot further ahead than I originally was hoping and they were very reasonable. I highly recommend them and am glad to have someone I can count on in the unfortunate need of an attorney. Thanks SLF!‎
We contacted Salcido law firm in the middle of an on going case; we were concerned our previous attorney was not taking a confident stance against the defense. After meeting with the Salcidos we transferred our case to their hands. We were impressed at the amount of preparation they did for our case (understanding where we were and where we wanted to be); we won. For the unfortunate who need an attorney, fortunately there’s a good one hanging around :).
LOVE LOVE LOVE! These guys have been the BEST guys to have on my side. I really felt at ease at court with Jerry by side. They always responded quickly. I had complete confidence in Chris and Jerry since the first consultation and really couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome I got. I also never felt like they were in it “for the money” which takes the stress of such an expense off my chest. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do, they have a customer for life.
I would like to express my gratitude to Jerry at Salcido Law Firm for helping me out with my criminal case. He was very professional and informative. I never had to worry about all the “IF” questions going through my mind they were all taken care of. I will always go back to Salcido Law Firm for everything they make you feel like family. You won’t be disappointed with this law firm. I highly recommend!! Thank you so much for all you’ve done for me I can’t even begin to let you know what it meant to me.
