To prevail in the criminal justice system, David R. Boyer draws on his in-depth knowledge of federal and state criminal laws in Utah. Successful defense requires mental dexterity for forging winning strategies, painting defendants in a positive light, and artfully presenting arguments that win over judges and juries. Alpine Ridge Law is a highly capable Utah criminal defense law firm in this respect.

Expertise and effective strategy underpins every phase of the case. When I decide to take a case, my strong commitment to the client lays the groundwork. And then I proceed with expert handling in all phases of the criminal justice process.

The investigative phase of my representation begins the moment a client hires me. I delve into police reports, obtains forensic testimony, and identify weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. I work closely with my clients, discussing events and gathering all details pertinent to the defense. Hard work and a thorough approach opens doors to uncovering vital evidence. To convict in a criminal case, the prosecution must prove that the defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The primary role of a criminal law attorney is to unearth evidence that creates doubt and plants seeds for acquittal.

Effective strategies underpin each stage of the process, from pre-trial motions through discovery, jury selection, courtroom presentation, cross-examination, and closing argument. Likewise, all statements released to the media are products of intense scrutiny, deliberation to create a desired effect, and overall case strategy.
