My son was charged with a felony. We were desperate and had no idea how to proceed . I think we waited too long to get representation, believing that matters could not possibly be that serious. Once we got the notice that he was to report to jail, I sat down and reviewed lawyers that had dealt with this kind of charge before ( sex with a minor) . I did read a lot of reviews. That same day I made an appointment with Joshua Baron of Sharifi and Baron. - Joshua Baron got a bail hearing and we posted bail and were able to keep my son out of jail. - I live out of state but I felt confident in his abilities and he kept me informed every step of the way - The criminal charges were reduced to probation and community service. This could have destroyed my son's future and he could have landed in jail. Even before I got to my first appointment they told me what the cost would be and there were no additional charges. This was the best money ever spent . I would do it again in a heartbeat. My family and I will forever be grateful to Mr Baron and Mr Sharifi.
We were so blessed to have come upon Kyler and Josh from Sharifi & Baron. We do not live in UT but had an unfortunate incident happen while visiting there. Kyler returned my first call after 7 at night and listened to our incident. I knew right then that he would work hard for us in proving our innocence to the charges. We appreciated his sensitivity to our financial concerns as well. We had total trust in his representation of us when we had to come to court hearings and when he got us excused from them, being out of state. Josh was also crucial in bringing to light the false accusations given from the prosecution. When Josh put us on the stand he questioned with purpose and validity which left the prosecution looking uneasy and wrong. The teamwork of both Kyler and Josh pushed the prosecution to dismiss the case before even going to trial! We couldn't be more pleased with the results and their efforts as a team. Highly recommend and truly grateful.
Definitely would not recommend Mr. Baron as an attorney. Extremely hard to get a hold of, doesn't follow through, and not helpful to name a few reasons..... Do yourself a favor and shop around for a better attorney who cares and will do you justice.
The only reason I am posting this review anonymously is to protect the privacy of my family member. -- I was very impressed with the treatment, professional courtesy and outcome of the case that Mr. Baron, who I retained to defend a family member, handled for us. -- It was a very challenging case that had serious consequences, if my family member was found guilty as charged.
Mr. Baron worked hard to determine the facts/evidence against my family member, advised me of the best and worse case scenarios, kept me informed every step of the way and never "sugar coated" anything. He was always factual and honest, but also cautiously optimistic, when facts and circumstances changed.
Thanks to Mr. Baron's handling of this matter and keen eye to the law and what would be best in this case, we ended up not having to go trial and the case settled in a way that allowed my family member to get on with his life. I honestly don't think it would have had this outcome, if we had retained another criminal defense attorney and certainly not if we had stayed with a public defender. - I have worked with attorneys in other areas, in the past, but few have provided the excellent customer service/professionalism that Mr. Baron does. He returns phone calls, emails, takes time to answer questions and his rates are fair. His office staff is also very courteous and helpful, as is his law partner.
My family member found himself in need of an attorney that would allow him to put this case behind him and get a "second chance" at life. Mr. Baron's representation of my family member allowed him to do just that. I am happy that I retained him to help with our family issue and HIGHLY recommend his services. (Note: THANK YOU Mr. Baron :-)
Josh was helpful and easy to get a hold of. He answered my emails and phone calls. He tried to deal with things as quickly as possible. The price was also good too. I felt like he actually cared about what happened to me
