ADMINISTRATIVE LAW

We are Utah’s premier law enforcement firm. Many of our attorneys are current or former officers and we all understand the unique issues facing police. We protect officers throughout the state on behalf of the FOP legal plan and we have been instrumental in changing the law for the betterment of officers across the state.

Premiere Representation for Law Enforcement

We are proud to represent law enforcement officers throughout the state. As the only firm servicing the Utah Fraternal Order of Police ("FOP") legal plan, we have hard-to-find experience with virtually every municipal and state law enforcement agency. As the lawyers who provide the front line of FOP legal plan protection, we are available to assist officers facing discipline, termination, or those who want to file administrative grievances relating to discipline. Given the current climate facing law enforcement, having focused and effective legal help is more important than ever.

 

Our work for law enforcement doesn’t stop with agencies.  We regularly appear before POST, use of force and accident review committees, and the Utah Court of Appeals. Our firm has been responsible for major victories at the appellate level that have clarified and improved the rights of law enforcement and other public employees across the state.

 

We have particular experience in officer-involved critical incidents ("OICIs") and use of force reviews. We provide an immediate response to OICIs and during the following protocol investigation. Our attorneys are either Force Science certified, police officers, or both. This unique background gives us the ability to more effectively understand and represent officers in use of force incidents and ensure the officer’s rights are protected during the process.

Non-FOP LEO

 

We are eager to help any law enforcement officer in the state, regardless of FOP membership, with administrative representation. We provide discounted rates to officers who are not FOP, though the same services are free to officers who were FOP at the time of the incident. Maintaining active FOP membership is the surest, least expensive way to ensure you have competent, effective legal representation should the need arise. To join the FOP, click here.

 

Special Rates on Other Services

 

We offer significant discounts to all law enforcement officers on all of our other legal services. We have substantial experience representing officers in family law matters and other civil actions. We also offer preferential fee arrangements to officers and their families in personal injury actions.

 

Our goal is to put our experience to work in service of those that serve us. Contact us for a free consultation.
