I had never been in trouble with the law before, and I knew absolutely nothing about the legal process, or dealing with lawyers and the courts. Originally I wanted to use a federal defender to save some money, but after they neglected to give me and my case any attention and told me just to accept the plea deal, I looked for council elsewhere. I am very glad I did.
From my first call Steve demonstrated clear knowledge of the laws surrounding my case. He gave me great advice, and made me feel confident that I had a strong case that was worth fighting. He took the time to learn about me and the details surrounding my case, and was always quick to respond to any questions that I had. When the court date came, Steve argued my case very professionally, and did a fantastic job with the examinations. In the end, we won our case, and I am extremely grateful that I called Intermountain Legal and had Steve on my side!

My son got arrested for something really dumb. I tried to talk to the prosecutor because I thought he would just dismiss it, but he wouldn't even talk to me and didn't care if my son lost his job. Steve worked hard and got the prosecutor to reduce the charge so my son could keep his job and just do community service instead of paying a huge fine. Thank you so much Steve!

I would highly recommend Steve Burton for your attorney. He went out of his way to help me in every way he could. He was honest, caring and knowledgeable. If you need a attorney HIRE STEVE BURTON and you will get the best deal possible! I can't say thank you enough!
