Lindsay Jarvis is a fearless and respected trial attorney who knows what it’s like to work on both sides of the courtroom. Why? Lindsay used to be a competitive, award-winning prosecutor. Now, Lindsay puts her hard work, trial experience, and hands-on approach to work as a criminal defense attorney, working for people like you. 

 

As a defense attorney, Lindsay has proven herself to be as compassionate and calming in overwhelming situations, as she is tough and tireless during a fight. Lindsay’s work ethic, in addition to her ability to communicate and relate with ordinary people, makes Lindsay exceptionally unique and overwhelmingly successful.

 

When you need a defense attorney, you need more than just a lawyer. You need someone who recognizes the complete devastation associated with being charged with a criminal offense and someone who will take the time to explain the nuances of the criminal justice system; a system that can seem completely overwhelming and intimidating at times. Additionally, you need somebody who’s both confident in the courtroom and creative in plea-negotiations. You need someone you can trust, and someone who will passionately advocate for you on your behalf.

 

When you need a criminal defense attorney, you need Lindsay Jarvis.

Caring, kind, cool, confident, direct, and committed
I hired Lindsay about two years ago for an incredibly complex aggravated assault charge (2nd degree felony, up to 15 yrs in prison). There were countless serendipitous events that led me to fire my previous lawyer and hire Lindsay, but I am so grateful that I did. Lindsay challenged me on specific issues that she saw with the case and provided me with sound legal guidance regarding the concerns that she had. She was also able to negotiate several different plea options for me with the prosecutor, all of which would have provided me with a much better outcome than the penalties I was currently facing. Ultimately, I decided to take my case to trial, which was a substantial risk. Lindsay was clear about the consequences that I would be facing if I was found guilty and she provided me with her final recommendations. I accepted full accountability of the outcome and we went to trial. Lindsay was an absolutely amazing litigator. So confident, articulate, calm, collected, direct, aggressive, and kind (all at key moments), in order to drive home specific points and guide the jury to the correct conclusions. After a 3 day trial, the jury deliberated for only 25 minutes before reaching their “Not guilty” verdict. Taking one’s case to trial is not what I am recommending. Lindsay has such great relationships with other attorneys and prosecutors that she can likely provide her clients with plea options that are both fair and equitable for all parties. However, if a jury trial is insisted upon by the client, then I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job representing the facts than Lindsay. I am infinitely grateful that I found her and that she represented me for this case. 5 stars and the highest of recommendations.

Excellent
Argued extremely well against the prosecutor, made the judge nervous because she did just that. Was done in a very nice and polite way and was amazing. She is one of the best lawyers I have ever had. I would highly recommend her any day.

The Best of The Best
Lindsey Jarvis is an exceptional lawyer. She made me feel comfortable and confident throughout my case. Even after she had long days in court, she would call me to keep me informed. She took my case and treated it like a personal matter. She empathized, and genuinely cared about my emotional well-being by checking on me and how I was feeling. I highly recommend Lindsey, as well as the staff. They’re responsible, reliable, punctual, caring and passionate about each and every one of their cases. Thank you Lindsey Jarvis for your amazing work and giving us the results we wanted and needed.

A credit to her profession
I chose to hire Lindsay because I've seen her in action while working for the criminal justice system. I admired her poise and professionalism. While I've personally never needed an attorney, my spouse was charged with a domestic violence offense. Due to the collateral consequences of a DV plea or conviction, an outright dismissal or acquittal was the only acceptable outcome. (My spouse's profession treats pleas held in abeyance just as a conviction) Lindsay took the time, on Thanksgiving eve mind you, to listen to me. She didn't give me any unrealistic expectations, but I felt very confident following the initial consultation. My spouse's case was dismissed outright at the arraignment proceeding. There a lot of negative stereotypes about attorneys, but Lindsay embodies the professionalism we should expect from attorneys. I would strongly recommend Lindsay if you are facing a justice system that can seem intimidating and overbearing.

Amazing advocate on my behalf
Lindsay was always available to talk with me about my case. She was patient with my complete lack of understanding of the justice system and helped me understand the mass amounts of legal jargon. Most importantly Lindsay got my case dismissed before the preliminary court appearance! I was facing a misdemeanor A...with possible jail time and the loss of other freedoms. I attribute my success to her understanding of the criminal justice system from both sides of the fence; seeing as she was once a prosecuting attorney and is now working as a defense attorney. It boils down to her experience, working relationships, and confidence. At no time did she ever make me feel guilty or not worth her time. I valued her candid responses to my questions. I hear some attorneys do little to zero work on the behalf of their client...Lindsay poured all her effort into my case as if it were her only case. Anything happens again, she will be the first person I call to represent me to save my assteroids!

Saved my life
I was a police officer who was involved in an officer involved shooting and unjustly charged with a crime. I could write about how good of a lawyer Lindsay is for pages so I'll keep it straight and to the point. Lindsay was there for me from the moment I was in the hospital to being charged, to winning in the courtroom at the prelim and still to this day she is there for me. Yes you heard that right we won at the prelim and anyone who has been around any court knows that is almost impossible. Now I can't promise you will become great friend like we have but I can promise she will put her heart and soul into every case the same way she did with mine. You truly would be doing yourself a disservice by not having Lindsay Jarvis as your attorney.

Lindsay Jarvis works magic in the court room!
After making several poor decisions trying to deal with some underlying emotional pain I was going through I suddenly found myself at the lowest point I had Ever been in my life. It felt like almost overnight .....I had lost my nursing license (being an RN was my passion, I loved caring for people), my 17 year marriage was most likely headed for a divorce and I didn't know what would happen with custody of my precious children. After speaking to Lindsay on the phone for the first time I was reassured that "we" would get through this....And amazingly we did. With Lindsay, I always walked calmly into the court rooms. I felt I had a friend by my side, someone who truly cared. She worked miracles for me. We had this ongoing joke that there must be "magic" following us, because every time we left court the outcome was so much better than we even had hoped for. I knew it was her. She just has a way with people; polite, yet very professional. Within a year I was able to get my life back. I am back in the life of my kids almost full time, I have my career back and am currently working as an RN again and could not be happier. I would recommend Lindsay Jarvis to anyone. I see her as an angel.

Followed through with everything she said
Lindsay did a great job with assisting me in an unfortunate legal mess I found myself wrapped up in. It was my first time in trouble and she got me the best case possible results that there could have been. I appreciate the help and the follow through.

Dedicated and Professional Lawyer
My experience with Ms. Jarvis spanned the course of a year in a very stressful criminal case. During that time she maintained regular, frequent contact with me where she gave me very detailed information regarding my case. She was sensitive to my needs and spent a significant amount of time answering my questions and addressing my concerns. It was easy to tell that she cares for her clients as human beings and not just cases to process. Ms. Jarvis has a remarkable knowledge of criminal law and procedure which ended up benefiting me greatly. She is very well respected by all of her legal colleagues. I would recommend her services without reservation. If any one of my loved ones needs an attorney, she will be the one I recommend!

Integrity and Attorney Do Go Hand in Hand with Ms. Jarvis
You hear a lot of the time that integrity and attorney don't go hand in hand, but with Ms. Jarvis you can count on her having integrity and doing the job she is hired to do, not just taking your money and doing very little if nothing at all. Trust me I have hired attorneys in the past that have done just that. Lindsay is an attorney that is prepared and goes above and beyond to fight for you. She is tenacious and ambitious and I know one of the best attorneys in Utah at handling criminal matters, not only because she has experience on both sides of the courtroom but also because she cares and fights the fight like she would for her own loved ones. It is rare to find someone in any profession that will fight someone else's fight or treat you like they would their own loved ones. Ms. Jarvis is one of a kind and someone who will and who genuinely cares about people. I have hired Ms. Jarvis to represent my son on two matters and she has done an outstanding job for him especially at making sure that his side of the story gets told and all charges dropped. I have also recently had to hire her for myself. My stress levels are lessened because I trust Ms. Jarvis and know she will do whatever she can to see to it that my side of the story is told. Thank you Ms. Jarvis for being the integrous person you are and for always going the distance for us! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Professional and ethical
I had a great experience with Lindsay. she is the best Attorney around. Lindsay has fought for me in more than one setting. Fighting the legal fight in the courts to fighting for me in the media and with my employer she has defended my reputation. After being falsely accused of a crime by a police department that was wrought with corruption and personal agendas Lindsay stepped up and defended me with tenacity and vigor. The best part of working with Lindsay is she truly cares.She is not working for the paycheck. She is working for the ethical and moral reasons that I expected.

I have never met a more qualified, harder working, intelligent lawyer ever!

Lindsay Jarvis is the best.
Lindsay is currently representing me in a sexual harassment case. From the beginning, she has been honest, sincere, and very thorough. Lindsay responds promptly to any text, email, or phone call which is amazing. Lindsay treats everyone with respect and dignity regardless of the situation. I highly recommend Lindsay for anyone who is seeking the best representation possible.

Saved my career
I had worked with 2 previous attorneys before Lindsay, and they were unable to do anything for me. I had a 2nd degree felony on my record keeping me from doing the job I had worked so hard to get, as well as being able to keep my family here in Utah. She was able to work her magic in the court room, and make it Happen! I now can continue working for the company I have loved, and keep my family here in the state of Utah. I would recommend Lindsay to anyone

My experiences with our Legal system!
I must say that Lindsay has helped me navigate through a very frightening situation! She was there for me every step of the way. She was always well prepared with information and options for me! It was very comforting to have someone that would stand by my side in such a horribly time of my life.

She knows her stuff and fights for you-
Proved my husband's innocence. She knows the law and fights for you- My husband was wrongfully accused and Lindsay stood by us and got us the results we deserved. She will investigate every outlet and use it for your defense! Highly Recommended.

Amazing attorney!
Lindsey helped me in my time of need, and really made a huge impact on my case, and I am so grateful for all the hard work she put into my case, and she made me feel like she really did care about me, and my case. Lindsey, all I can say is thankyou!!! If you want someone who cares, and gets results. She is the one.
