About Me


My name is Glen Neeley; I am currently one of two Board Certified DUI Defense Lawyers in Utah and I focus most of my practice on DUI and Drug offenses.  I have spent my twelve plus years of practice on the defense side.  I began to focus on DUI cases in late 1999 and early 2000 after becoming a member of the National College for DUI Defense.  I have hundreds of hours of continuing legal education on criminal law issues and specifically on DUI defense. 


 


I have been married to the love of my life since 1995.  We have three beautiful and ambitious daughters.  I grew up in the Ogden, Utah area.  I am a religious man and served the Lord on an LDS Mission for two years in Canada preaching the Gospel. I also served my country for 8 years in the United States Air Force.  My family and I are blessed to live in Ogden and have many close family members and friends who we enjoy spending time with often. 


 


Because my practice focuses on DUI defense, I often speak and lecture to other lawyers about how to defend a DUI case.  I have been interviewed by several TV stations, newspapers and other local media in cases and issues involving DUI or other intoxication issues.


 


My goal is to focus on each case that I take and provide personal client attention.  I try more cases in a year than most criminal lawyers try in ten years and I believe that is for several reasons.  I really enjoy my work.  I enjoy standing up for the person who cannot stand up for himself.  In most cases, I build a friendship with my clients.  I believe in people and their humanity.  If I can help them in their time of stress, I want to do whatever I can.  I enjoy trials.  I enjoy the stress that comes with being in trial and the feeling of being alive and giving of myself.  I believe that when I walk in that courtroom, as arrogant as this might sound, I am in charge and the goal is to help my client.

    Simply put, it is my belief that Glen Neeley is the best DUI/DWI attorney in Utah. Glen is board certified in DUI Defense by the National College for DUI Defense. This is probably the hardest certification test in the country and Glen is one of less than 50 lawyers certified IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. Glen has attended numerous seminars and classes to not only keep up but excel and stay on the cutting edge of aggressive DWI defense. He has specialized training in the science area involved in DUI cases. He knows and understands breath and blood testing as well as field sobriety testing. More importantly, he has a special ability to take his knowledge and explain it to a jury or judge in a "common sense" approach. Glen is special in that more than knowing the law and the science, he truly cares for his clients. If I ever knew of anybody charged with a DUI or a criminal case in Utah, without hesitation I would tell them to call Glen.

  • Andrea King Robertson

    Glen is a fantastic attorney. We met in 2004 at the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer's College in Wyoming. Since then, I have been in contact with Glen often, as a resource and a sounding board. I constantly marvel at his cutting edge strategies and endless creativity, as he defends against difficult criminal allegations. Glen is a powerful advocate who cares deeply about his clients, helping them in their time of ultimate need. I endorse him without hesitation.
