About me

Darren M. Levitt is a Salt Lake City criminal defense attorney and founder of Levitt Legal, PLLC. The law firm is focused on defending misdemeanor and felony charges for clients located in Salt Lake County, Box Elder County, Chase County, and nearby areas. Darren represents a diverse group of clients in need of legal counsel, including business and working professionals, stay at home parents, students, and out-of-state visitors. All clients receive the highest level of attention, regardless of the severity of the charges they face.


Utah does have a lower crime rate than many other states, but it has stricter penalties for the same crimes. Darren is dedicated to defending individuals who face charges for criminal offenses, including DUI in Salt Lake County, marijuana crimes, domestic violence crimes, weapons violations, violent crimes, violation of probation, theft and property crimes, and juvenile offenses. He also provides legal counsel for men, women, and minors who wish to pursue records sealing and expunging.


Before starting his own law firm, Darren honed his criminal defense skills by working with the state's finest criminal defense attorneys. Darren even had the opportunity to work on one of the most high profile murder cases in Utah's history. Additionally, Darren has worked on many full trial civil litigation cases, including family law, personal injury, and property law. This knowledge has proven invaluable in his current function as a criminal attorney, when cases include elements of family law or personal injury.


While in law school at the University of Utah, Darren competed in the Moot Court competition, served on the Journal of Land Resources, and Environmental Law, and a CALI award. These experiences served as a strong foundation to Darren's later career in the legal field.


Darren's perspective on productive attorney-client relationships is shaped by his experience as a professional ski instructor, where he travelling the world. When teaching a nervous first time skier, trust is critical. The instructor must lead the student through a new and slightly dangerous environment. This is especially true in criminal court, when a client's trust in your abilities, knowledge, and guidance are vital. Darren applies this philosophy of open-communication and careful guidance when working with all of his clients.
