About Me

Carl is an experienced litigator.  He was born and raised in Layton, Utah. He attended Weber State University, majoring in Psychology, and then later the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, where he obtained his J.D.


In law school Carl found his passion for litigation and excelled in trial advocacy obtaining the highest grade in trial ad and the CALI award in advanced trial advocacy.  In addition, he successfully completed the Litigation Skills Program of Concentrated study, with a criminal emphasis.


After graduation, he moved to Lexington, Nebraska where he successfully prosecuted hundreds of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases, at both the misdemeanor and felony levels, handling countless Motions to Suppress along with both bench and jury trials; Carl boasts having never lost a DUI bench or jury trial.  In addition to learning to be the most effective and persuasive in the courtroom, Carl dedicated himself to gaining as much knowledge as possible on DUI.  To that end, he went on numerous ride-a-longs, which provided him with a unique understanding of  DUI enforcement in the field.  Also, he became qualified to administer the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST) and successfully completed the SFST instructor course; qualifying him to teach and evaluate law enforcement on proper SFST administration.


In addition to being knowledgeable and experienced as a SFST instructor, Carl Anderson, although he is not certified as a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE), attended several law enforcement refresher trainings and has handled several cases involving DRE.  This has given him the added expertise to competently defend against DUI drug charges.


Carl uses his love of litigation, his understanding of courtroom decorum, his knowledge of trial advocacy, his attention to detail and commitment to excellence, and most importantly his unique experience and training to ensure that all of his clients, from bankruptcy, to divorce, to criminal law, get the best possible result.


Carl is a father of five and speaks fluent Spanish.  He is licensed in Colorado, Nebraska, and Utah. In addition to handling criminal matters, Carl also handles Bankruptcies and Family Law matters. He is a member of National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Utah Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
