Very thorough and responsive. Took care of my issues in a very professional manner. I would recommend him to a family member. His paralegal Chad is also very good at what he does.

In February of this year, I was cited for a DUI in Davis County, UT, one of the more strict and conservative areas in Northern Utah. I was terrified of the consequences of what would appear on my record, possible fines and loss of my drivers license. I had contacted a lawyer before Steve who wanted a very large retainer down, plus more after the case resolution. They were very accusatory, and admitted to using unlawful methods in the initial interview, and it made me feel like I was doomed.
Initially upon meeting with Steve, I could tell that he had a genuine interest in helping me come to the best resolution for my specific case, and wasn't just digging for high retainer fees. At each meeting he went over each step in detail, and made sure I understood the process fully. In my particular case, I was dealing with a work visa to a different country, and he was able to recommend outside help for that as well.
Overall, I am quite happy with the outcome of my case. The charges were lowered from DUI to impaired driving, and the speeding charges on my citation were dropped completely. He even was able to have the judge accommodate for my out of state residence.

My 17 year old son was pulled over by police for an "illegal lane change". He was charged with a DUI after they got him to admit he had smoked marijuana 12 hours earlier that day. Along with the DUI, he was charged with speeding, illegal lane change, and tobacco possession -(he had a can of chew in his truck) There was no alcohol involved with his DUI charge. It is actually called a Metabolite DUI. I had never hired a lawyer before, or even talked to a lawyer before. I reached out to Steve Anderson's office hoping they could help my son. Steve was our saving grace. He met with us right away, and was truly interested in helping us with our situation. Steve was able to get my son's license reinstated by determining there was not reasonable suspicion to take it from a traffic violation to an investigation and arrest, and the DLD agreed. In court, Steve was able to get 3 of the 4 charges dropped. The DUI was reduced to "impaired driving". More important, he was very professional with my son. He talked to him about the consequences of a DUI, and the impact it has on your life and lives of others. I am very thankful for the legal representation we received from Steve and his firm. Any questions I had were answered quickly, phone calls were returned within the hour, and emails were quickly responded to. I always knew what our next step was, and felt very informed throughout the entire process.
