Attorney David Altman was my defense attorny and represented me in my last court case. He was very knowledgable with all the court proceedings, the charges against me, and familiar with the judge and prosucuters in my case. I had three very serious charges, including a 3rd degree felony, and was facing some lengthy jail time. With his experience and knowledge, we were able to work out a deal with the prosecutor to avoid jail time, and after I complete a few state mandated classes which are unavoidable, have all of the charges dropped. No other lawyer could have done this well. I could't be happier with the service I received from David Altman. Without hesitation I would hire him again as my defense attorny, if the need ever arises.

Mr. Altman was a fine choice. His correspondence was top notch, leaving me less stressed and fully informed about my whole legal situation. His demeanor was both professional and personal. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in search of an aggressive attorney in Utah.

I live in Los Angeles, California and had a motor vehicle accident in Saint George Utah and suffered a serious personal injury requiring multiple surgeries.
Attorney Altman was attentive, knowledgeable and a tough litigator.
I am very pleased with the way the case worked out. I highly recommend Attorney Altman for all your legal personal injury needs in Saint George, Utah.

Mr. Altman will be my attorney for life. He represented me in civil and criminal matters and both times I was very happy with the results. In my civil case attorney Altman recovered over $35,000 when the insurance denied my claim and refused to pay anything. Mr. David Altman got me everything I asked for and I couldn’t be happier. I also had a criminal case in St. George and was facing jail time. Attorney Altman represented me again and his fee was very reasonable. He got my misdemeanor charges reduced to a single infraction which wouldn’t appear as a conviction on my record. Mr. Altman handled all my court dates without my going to court except for the first court date. This was a big deal because I moved to California and couldn’t go back to Utah court. Attorney Altman had to go to court for me several times more than expected since I couldn’t go myself and I really appreciated that he didn’t charge me more for those extra appearances. Extreme lyhappy with him. You won't regret it.

David is very down to earth, honest, easily approachable. He will patiently explain all aspects of your case to you. He's quick and consistent in returning phone calls and emails.
David successfully obtained the second diversion ever done in UT for charges I was up for. In fact, he's helped me with two cases, neither of which are going to result with any charges showing up on my record, because of his good work.
Thank you David, for your help.

My son resides in Cedar City and was given a citation for an open beer in a car. (He was a passenger.) I live in MD and went on line in search of a defense attorney--on a Saturday. I contacted David and another attorney never expecting to hear from anyone until Monday. David returned my call within the hour and we were on a conference call w/ my son within minutes. David was upfront and set realistic expectations. He EXCEEDED every expectation. My son needed his case expedited because of a military deadline. David not only expedited his case but had his probation shortened + more!
Besides all of these great results when David returns you calls--and he always does--he speaks to you in a business like but approachable manner. He goes the extra mile whether your case is simple or complicated. I hope I don't have to but I would use him again and highly recommend him. A real pro and a good man.
