Schatz, Anderson & Associates

Choosing your attorney is one of the most important decisions you make following an arrest or charge. The attorneys at Schatz (pronounced "Shots") Anderson & Associates emphasize defending DUI and criminal cases aggressively as opposed to just seeking plea bargains. In our view, the plea bargain process is sometimes the lazy way to get a resolution in a DUI or criminal case.

We undertake a thorough examination of each client's case. Only after that analysis do we make a decision — in conjunction with our client — about whether to fight for a dismissal, try the case with a judge or a jury, or seek a plea bargain for a lesser charge. We have over 40 years combined experience defending all kinds of criminal cases throughout the State of Utah since 2003. We aren't afraid to take even the most difficult cases to trial and will fight for a not guilty verdict.
