Professionally managed and successfully argued
Robert helped me tremendously when I needed a lawyer for a DWI. Every step of the way was professionally handled and he really made me feel like my time and case was his only priority. He was punctual and always prepared and even used his vast knowledge of Utah law to provide me with not only the best defense, but an aggressive offense that took what could have been a DWI down to impaired. Without Robert and his inestimable professionalism, I would not have fared as well as I had.

Up Hill Regulatory Battle with The State
As a former Restaurant and Bar owner in Utah I should have known when I booked the 325th show at my former business (that featured Male Dancers) I was on thin ice with the State Regulators. The Dancers over did it and on the front row of the show were two State troopers on undercover duty. The State and the County came down on us in the hardest and most aggressive manner possible. Robert was there with me from the begging of the process to the end. Through County and State procedures. He prepared a great defense and a impressive appeal to the State Appeal Court. In a fair and honest proceeding he would have definitely prevailed (Summit County) but in the State proceeding where 99% of licensees lose, well you get the picture. I would use Robert for my business contracts and regulatory issues in the future.

Great legal services
I had Robert Saunders prepare some legal documents for me and take a matter to court. He was knowledgeable, responsive and well informed. The case turned out very well and I was very pleased with his representation. I plan to retain him again when I require legal services.

Results exceeded expectations
Robert's expertise and recommendations were instrumental in resolving my case. His professional approach to the case resulted in a settlement amount more than I had expected. I would retain him again if necessary and highly recommend him to others seeking a competent attorney.

Ethical Professional Respectful
Mr. Saunders efficiently guided me from beginning to end and aquainted me with Utah's State Laws and Regulations. Mr. Saunders efforts will go unnoticed. A DUI charge is a huge financial and economical burden. Mr. Saunders was able to work at my pace and treated me as an individual rather than a textbook case. Mr. Saunders was prompt in returning calls and answered all of my questions no matter how repetitive I felt my questions became. Mr. Saunders acted in a professional and ethical manner and was honest about his services from consultation to post-trial. It was comforting to have a lawyer knowledgable in all different facets of the legal system. The outcome superceded an honest consultation on all levels. Definitely will hire again for different areas - of course. Highly reccommend Mr. Saunders as a DUI lawyer.

Excellent Attorney
As the owner of a few commercial buildings, I occasionally have tenants that fall behind on rent. After hiring a few different attorneys without much success, I gave Saunders Law a try. So far, Mr. Saunders has done a great job. So far, he has successfully sued two of my old tenants and was able to recover from both of them... a task I thought was impossible.

Great Contract Attorney
Great to work with! Robert was quick to respond and very knowledgeable. The lease agreement that he drafted for me was promptly and skillfully done. I would highly recommend him to anyone that asks.
Posted by Brian | July 10, 2012
Initially hired Mr. Saunders to draft a few employment and independent contractor agreements. However, within a few months, we had all of our legal matters moved over to Mr. Saunders. The work Mr. Saunders does is top notch and at least for us, we really like him as a person.
