Hit & Run

Lately it seems there has been a great deal of hit and runs in the news. Hit & Run charges can either be filed as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The deciding factor is the amount of property damage and the seriousness of injury. If a serious injury is sustained by a passenger or other party, felony charges can be filed.

BICYCLISTS MUST OBEY TRAFFIC LAWS

When a car or truck has a collision with a bicycle, the bicycle rider usually loses, no matter who legally had the right of way. Bicycle riders should take extra care to obey the following safety tips:

Remember: Bikes Are Vehicles, Too
Legally, bicycles traveling on a road are required to be treated in the same way as any other vehicle traveling on the road would be. This means that, as a bicyclist, you must obey the same laws as other drivers do. Do not run red lights, change lanes without signaling, or commit other infractions. If you would not do it in a car, don't do it on a bike.

"Emergency" or "2-page" Bankruptcy Filings - CAUTION!

There's an old stereotype of the lawyer who 'chases' ambulances in the hopes of landing 'easy' cases for making a quick buck. Unfortunately, the stereotype has a basis in fact - there are a growing number of marginally qualified lawyers, and even some scam artists, who will gladly take your money without providing a comparable level of service. The end result can often be worse than where you started.

D.U.I. - TRUTH IN SENTENCING LAWS - WATCH OUT!

Have you or someone you know been charged with a DUI (driving under the influence) or any of its many cousins, DWI, OUI, OWI, OMVI, DWAI, etc...? These charges are serious and very technical in nature to litigate in the American court of law. Kristopher K Greenwood LC (KKG) brings deep experience and an aggressive, intelligent attorney to your side.

Drug Related Charges Require a Strong Defense!

If you face drug charges, it is extremely important that you work with experienced criminal defense attorneys.

A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Make a Huge Difference

Far too often, personal injury victims assume that they can forgo legal representation when filing claims. While this may seem like a smart idea, the reality is that the majority of people do not have the legal training or knowledge it takes to successfully litigate cases. Additionally, most people do not have experience negotiating with large insurance corporations that are responsible for paying out settlements to victims. Most insurance companies are equipped with in-house legal teams and are in the business of saving money, not dispensing it, which is why having an attorney with prior personal injury experience is so important.

UHP says they will be out!

Law enforcement agencies across the state are reporting an increase in arrests of people  suspected of DUI. Troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol say they've also seen an increase in the number of people driving under the influence of drugs. If you have been charged with a DUI, you need us now more than ever.

Metabolite DUI

We firmly believe that the law governing metabolite DUI charges is fundamentally wrong.  We have the common sense to know that taking a prescription drug like Soma or Vicodin at some time prior to getting behind the wheel does not necessarily mean that you are too impaired to drive. If you were arrested and charged with metabolite DUI, we want to fight for you. Contact us today! 801-475-8800

How do I know if Bankruptcy is a Good Idea for Me?

Sometimes I get asked, "How can I know if it is a good idea to file for bankruptcy? The first thing I tell them is that bankruptcy isn't for everyone, but there are some circumstances where bankruptcy does make sense. I've known people who have chosen to file bankruptcy for the following reasons:
