Steven L. Anderson

About me

Steve Anderson is highly knowledgeable and experienced in both DUI and criminal defense and has navigated just about every kind of criminal case. With a full staff in his Salt Lake City-based office, he is able to concentrate on his clients' best defense. To further his knowledge of DUIs and police procedure, Steve has completed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) student and instructor courses for the Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST). He has also completed the Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) Course that many officers take. Steve is well known in the legal community as a compassionate yet aggressive defense attorney who truly puts his client’s interests first. A quiet but heart-felt people person, he’s confident but not showy. You’ll never hear it from his lips, but he has been honored and praised by his colleagues. He and his paralegal Chad (an ex-SLC police officer) work tirelessly and successfully to protect the rights of clients accused of crimes in Utah--and they're excellent at it.
