I am a client first hand. Mr.Avery was my attorney. And I finally know a happy ending to a criminal matter.
I hired Mr. Avery. My hopes were crushed. This charge had hurt my life so bad I wanted to give up. To be honest I wouldnt say I didn’t trust his ideas I would say I trusted mine better. Sorry Mr. Avery. But boy was he right and me wrong. If you want an experienced lawyer that knows the judges and prosecutors and know how to be to different people hire him now. That’s Him. If you want a man that will listen make you feel better when you’re freaking out. Hire him. If you wan a go for it guy. Hire him. If you want a person that stays focused when all eyes are on him and seems to always pick the right word or words in tough situations, HIRE HIM. If you want a lawyer with all these qualities plus many many more hire him. Hopefully I won’t be dealing with any more issues but if something happens you can bet I’ll be calling Rob Avery. He needs no leverage. His ideas and ways to show a picture with words is a gift he has and will use if needed. He won’t let down.

Compassionate and Honest Attorney
Rob was amazing to step in at the last minute after a previous attorney neglected his duty. Rob arranged his schedule to help represent us in less than a week’s time. He was honest and assisted us during a very difficult and stressful time. We are very grateful for Rob’s support and preparation!

Fantastic!
My brother got in a little trouble with the law and after he fulfilled all the court-ordered requirements, he asked me if I could help him have the case dismissed. I asked some friends and they recommended Rob Avery. Rob listened carefully to my brother's situation and then recommended that we file a motion to dismiss. Within 48 hours of my initial phone call, the case was dismissed and the hearing date was cancelled. I couldn't have been more impressed with the speed and the outcome!

Great Utah County Lawyer
Mr. Avery answered my call at night and spent a good hour talking to me about my husband's case. He has worked hard on our case for over a year. I'm very pleased with the outcome. He was always easy to reach , which was so nice when we had any questions or concerns.

Amazing Lawyer - Don't Hesitate
Amazing experience, Rob Avery was attentive and helpful every step of the way through my case. I was facing some serious legal issues and he was able to negotiate hard with the prosecution and state to get the best outcome we could ask for. Don't hesitate to put ypur trust and case in his hands.

Help at the worst time of my life
Many reasons I should’ve spent time in jail with the charges I was facing. Found new laws that kept me out of jail and kept me from losing my license. He made the process easier for me to get through the process.

World’s Best
Rob Avery is a scholar, gentlemen, and teddy bear. Rob went to bat for me during a very vulnerable time in my life. I don’t know where I’d be without his expert guidance and diligent efforts in my behalf. If he has any flaws it would that he cares too much, works too hard, and is far too handsome.

Legal Help
I got in touch with Rob through the Utah State Bar Modest Means Program. He made an appointment for me right away. He took the time to explained to me what was expected about my case. One thing that I appreciated is that he always responded to my emails right away. In the end, he was able to help me resolve my issue with 100% satisfaction. I highly recommend his services. Excellent job. Thanks.

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've known Rob for years and I've seen him advocate for his clients in court. He is a professional who gets great results. I highly recommend him."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I'm an attorney in Prescott Arizona. I referred a client that lived in Utah to Robert Avery for a criminal misdemeanor defense matter involving allegations of domestic violence. Mr. Avery did a wonderful job. He was available by cell phone to speak with and to answer questions. I found his fee to be reasonable for the work performed. He obtained a result that, in my opinion, was an excellent result given the factual circumstances of the charges against our mutual client. It's not often that I find local counsel for my clients that is compassionate and willing to be patient and answer the questions that my clients have. I recommend Rob Avery for any criminal matter that you may have in the Provo area."
General practice Attorney | Apr 20
Relationship: Friend
"I've known Rob for almost 15 years and have always found him to have high integrity, work ethic, and leadership ability. He is passionate, principled, and fair in his judgments."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 22
Relationship: Friend
"I worked with Rob in law school and have had significant contact with him since then. He combines two qualities too rarely found together: an ardent sense of right and the ability to give force and voice to it. Rob has an impeccable sense of justice and sees to the kernel of issues quickly without becoming lost in the superfluous or the inconsequential. Those looking for a champion with the chops to give them a voice would be well served to make Rob their advocate."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 10
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Rob Avery is a passionate defender of individual's rights and liberties. He is a zealous advocate for his clients. His knowledge of the law is matched perfectly by his ability to argue to the courts. Rob's familiarity with the courts and legal processes combined with his legal knowledge produce a defense that is forthright and holds the prosecution and the police to honest enforcement of the law and true justice for his clients."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 03
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Rob is a tenacious and capable attorney who leaves no stone unturned when fighting for the rights of his clients. I am routinely amazed at the outcomes his is able to achieve on behalf of those he represents."
General practice Attorney | Feb 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Rob Avery since before his time as a lawyer and have found him to possess the highest personal and professional character. He is honest, forthright, and a talented litigator."
General practice Attorney | Jan 29
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I not only attended law school with Rob, I also worked as co-counsel with Rob on a complex matter that ultimately was ruled on by the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. He is an outstanding advocate, a great man, and I wholeheartedly recommend him."
