ANYTHING YOU CAN SAY NOW, I CAN SAY BETTER LATER (DON'T TALK TO THE COPS). AVVO CLIENT'S CHOICE AWARD: 2020, 2021, 2022.

I love my career as a Criminal Defense Attorney.  Every day, I get to defend our Constitutional rights against an excessively punitive and discriminatory criminal "justice" system.  In our criminal "justice" system, many people are wrongfully accused, over-charged, over-punished, or simply not afforded basic human respect.  I endeavor to help my clients navigate this system.  Sometimes this requires me to show a Jury why my client is wrongfully accused.  Sometimes this requires me to show a Judge why a search, seizure, or interrogation, violated our Constitution. Sometimes this requires me to work with a Prosecutor to reach a fair and just resolution in a case.  I look forward to performing these tasks and others in order to most effectively serve the people whom I represent.

Prior to opening my own practice, I worked at the firm of Langford-Ramos and its predecessor, Langford Legal.  I also interned at the Salt Lake Legal Defender's Association, at the Utah Court of Appeals, and at the Hill Air Force Base Office of Legal Counsel.  I currently sit on the Utah State Bar's Board for the Young Lawyer's Division as the Chair of a program that provides free representation to people facing eviction and as a Committee Member for a program that provides free legal advice to Veterans.  I have been recognized as the 2018 Pro Bono Attorney of the Year and continue to volunteer through the Utah State and Federal Courts.

Prior to practicing law, I served in the United States Marine Corps and the Utah National Guard.  My experience as an Infantry Platoon Sergeant, Intelligence Sergeant, and Linguist, helped prepare me to be successful in this career.  I have been honored to represent many veterans in my practice.

Calm, Cool and Collected
Brent made me feel at ease through the entire process of my case. He has a very calm but direct attitude that assures you that he knows what he is doing. He clearly laid out all of my options with his own recommendations and helped guide me in the direction that worked best for me. It was very comforting knowing I was being represented by someone who actually cared. He turned a very stressful situation into an incredibly calm one. I would recommend Brent to anyone who needs legal help.

Brent is an alien because he’s out of this world intelligent and amazing!
First let me start off with Brent is an amazing attorney! He makes whatever you’re going through fun even when it shouldn’t be lol especially when you’re dealing with legal issues but he’s super friendly, great personality, and very intelligent. He’ll have your back till the end no matter what it takes! With my specific issue I was dealing with through me in a dark place because it was my first offense and definitely not a good one but once I sat down with him and had a conversation and he told me the game plan I felt entirely better and my anxiety was gone and once everything was finalized it came out better than ever. I got the absolute best possible outcome he saved my life! Brent deserves every bit of recognition possible if you’re looking for someone who cares for your well being to fight for you and doesn’t look at you like you’re a paycheck Brent is man for you! Thank you Bret for everything you’ve done for me

Great Lawyer
Brent was able to guide me through all the tests and evaluations I had to do. He kept me up to date with what was happening in my case. He gave me all the options of what to do and his recommendations; we ended up with a plea deal that was satisfactory to all parties. He made me feel like I wasn't alone.

It's my first time using Brent, and he blew my expectations away!
I am so thankful to have been lucky enough to have found Brent to represent me on several cases. He has been nothing short of spectacular! Very communicative, has an extremely tough work ethic, and gets the job done! We have closed 2 out of 3 cases so far with spectacular results. Truly better, then, I was expecting! He is not some vast firm that makes you feel like your case isn’t important. Even though he achieves the best outcomes possible and is with you every step of the way. If you require a criminal defense attorney, then Brent is your man! I have been truly blown away by the way he has handled my cases and the outcomes that he has been able to achieve. He will be my first call if I ever need an attorney again and my first recommendation if someone I know needs a defense attorney! Thank you for all your hard work! Allow Brent to handle your case, and you will not regret it… I promise. Thank you again, Brent

Cool, Calm and Aggressive
I highly recommend Brent as a lawyer for anyone seeking legal representation. Brent's military background not only instills a sense of trust and discipline but also ensures he is well-versed in understanding the unique needs of families with military connections. His calm demeanor was a stabilizing force during challenging times, keeping me grounded and focused. Yet, when the situation demanded, Brent demonstrated an impressive level of aggression and assertiveness in advocating for my interests. Brent's ability to navigate the legal system with such expertise and confidence is truly commendable. He is keenly aware of the nuances that are important to his clients, making him not just a lawyer, but a reliable ally in the face of complex legal challenges. If you are in need of someone who will tirelessly fight for you within the legal system, I wholeheartedly suggest reaching out to Brent.

Helped while living in Hawaii
I hired Brent Huff because I had a situation happen while my husband and I were on vacation in Utah from Hawaii. Brett was absolutely amazing. I have never had an encounter with the law before, so Brent helped me understand what was happening with my case and gave me options to sort it out. He explained everything clearly and took the time to make sure I understood what the courts were telling me. Thank you Brent!

Exceptional Lawyer: A Victory in Every Sense
I was represented by Brent Huff in a legal ordeal that could have severely hurt my reputation as a young professional, and with his help i was able to get that case dropped! I cannot overstate how impressed I was with his extraordinary legal acumen and dedication. From the moment I first consulted with him, it was evident that I was in the hands of a consummate professional. Throughout the entirety of my case, Brent was able to walk me through why as a young professional it was important to protect my reputation with a great plan of defense. He demonstrated an unmatched attention to detail. He meticulously examined every aspect of my situation, leaving no stone unturned in his pursuit of the truth. His thorough research and keen eye for crucial details proved to be instrumental in building a rock-solid defense. What sets Brent apart was his ability to keep the prosecution honest throughout the proceedings. When he steps into a court of law, people notice. He demands honesty and respect from other lawyers in his daily dealings and he is able to expertly navigate the legal landscape, ensuring that the facts are presented accurately and that his clients rights are upheld at every juncture. Most importantly he kept the prosecutors honest at every turn. Throughout my process, he was confident in our game plan and he was able to skillfully dismantle the prosecution's claims and concerns. He ultimately showed the prosecution and the judge that my case was baseless which led to its prompt dismissal. In my time of need, Brent became not only my legal advocate but also a trusted confidant. There was never a time that he was not approachable, or empathetic, and he always provided me with unwavering support throughout this challenging journey. I was always informed and involved in every step of the legal process. I wholeheartedly recommend Brent J Huff to anyone seeking top-tier legal representation. If you find yourself in need of legal expertise and seek a lawyer who can deliver results, he is one of the best. Thank you, Brent, for saving my reputation!

TLDR: Extremely knowledgeable lawyer! Just talk Brent about anything, and he'll tell you straight up from the get-go. The amount of officials in my district who recognized this dude was crazy We contacted him, and from that first conversation he immediately had not only MY FUTURE AND BACK but Justice in mind as well. He told us how it would go, and that's exactly what happened. The state wasn't willing hear me me, but he looked into the evidence that I had from the beginning and used that to prove my innocence. I spoke to him how much my future means to me, any not only listened but fought that for me!

Excellent Defense Attorney
I worked with Brent on a complicated DUI case that stretched out for multiple years. He maintained excellent communication and worked the case through the court system around my personal and professional schedule. I was very pleased with him through the entire process. It was very gratifying to have a good attorney on my side. In court it was clear to me that he was well prepared and extremely competent. I was referred to Brent by a personal friend, and if any of my other friends need representation in Brent's area working with him will be my personal recommendation as well.

The guy for my case
Close to year and a half the judge that was part of my case dismissed the lawyer that I had had six weeks to get a new lawyer for my next court date finding Brent was a godsend. Found them on find law.com and from there called him after reading his reviews what other people had said in his bio, when talking to him on the phone very informative, knowing the law and able to break it down for me for me to understand was one of the biggest things for me. He always returns phone calls, emails , and text messages. If you’re looking for a great criminal defense attorney. Brent Huff is your guy. Thanks again for everything.

An excellent attorney.
My family attorney recommended Brent as a victims advocate in a case that's lasted 3 years now. I'm happy to say I took that recommendation. I was a victim in a domestic violence case, suffocated at 6 months pregnant, threatened with a gun, continually harrased, and the court system brushed me off letting PO violations go. But, Brent turned that around. Brent was a loud voice for me in court, after hiring him I was no longer brushed off and ignored. With Brent I was heard, the court granted a continuous protective order, protecting me for life from the man who nearly killed me and has continuously harrased me for 3 years. My abuser has used the court/legal system as a form of harrassment. Brent brought this litigation abuse to light, and hopefully it will end. Brent's attention to detail, thorough understanding of the law, and skillfull presentation all played a factor in my case. I would highly recommend him and would not want to be playing on the other side. After my experience with Brent he has a client for life, I would rehire him in confidence.

Great lawyer
Brent helped me when my first lawyer was did after 8 months. Brent listened to to my case and asking the right questions. Took my case. With his passion for law and justice gave me hope that he was the lawyer to take my case on. One thing I really like about the bread of my lawyer in criminal defense, is he is very knowledgeable and knows the law and also it’s very informative and explains everything about the law when it comes to your case. Hopefully in the future, I will never need a lawyer, but if I do, I would definitely hire him again because we got the job done together. I was answering my phone calls. My questions made it very easy for me to get through my case Brett thank you again for everything

It's "criminal" that I can only give 5 stars
First of all: Brent answers his own phone. That says so much about him. I had called, emailed, and left messages for 10 other lawyers--and never heard back from ANY of them! Called Brent, he answered in 2 seconds, and consulted with me for over an hour. I then hired Brent, who gave me confidence that my case was not as bad as it appeared. He has the compassion, professionalism, and high-level competence necessary to get the best possible results, as he did for me. In my case, I was accused of a felony, with a Domestic Violence designation. With a lesser lawyer, this probably would have gone south and ruined my life in multiple ways. But Brent insisted on seeking out the truth of the matter, in his smart way, and he made the truth known, so that my overblown felony charges finally got reduced to a simple plea in abeyance. I walked away from this great experience with no jail time, no fine, no lasting criminal history, nothing! I can move on with my life immediately, and I am so grateful that I had this experience. This was a very fair and fitting result. Brent understands that the "justice" system is often anything but just, and he uses his deep understanding, knowledge, and genuine compassion to expertly uphold and defend his clients' rights. Even though my situation was initially intimidating and scary, I knew intuitively that Brent was simply the best, and that he would get the best possible result for me. Brent's services are not only the best and most effective I have ever seen or heard of, but they are also very affordable. In the end, he charged me significantly less than I had agreed to pay! So first he got me the best possible result, and then he gave me money, just because. What a guy! I can't say enough in support of this man, so I will just leave it at this: Just give Brent a call, because he's your man. Thank you Brent! 73 stars out of 5
