Grand County Utah Criminal Defense Lawyer – Moab

A Grand County Criminal Defense Lawyer at Salcido Law Firm can represent you in any charge you me be facing in Moab and the surrounding areas. Grand County is a beautiful area located in the eastern part of the state that stretches to the Colorado boarder. This location receives thousands of tourists every year. Moab is a huge draw for outdoor adventurers from all over the country and world. Arches National Park and Canyon Lands National Park also bring in all kinds of people from all walks of life looking to enjoy some of the most unique outdoors opportunities the United States has to offer. Unfortunately, many local residents of Moab, and many of the out of town tourists just enjoying the scenery may find themselves facing a criminal charge in an unfamiliar system. Often tourists, especially those visiting from Colorado or other marijuana friendly states, are charged with marijuana possession in Grand County and don’t initially realize the potential penalties involved. Utah is still a very anti marijuana and antidrug state with harsh penalties on the books. As a result, anyone facing any kind of drug charge in Grand County should at least consult with an attorney from our team before going to court or taking any other action. DUIs and alcohol related charges are also common in this area. Every year, many people get together for different Moab events including the Jeep Safari which inevitably results in a high number of DUIs and alcohol related offenses being charged in the city and out at the parks. A Salt Lake DUI Lawyer at our firm can assist if you are facing a DUI or any type of alcohol related charge.

Federal Marijuana Charges in Moab

Many of the marijuana charges occurring in the Moab area are federal because of the vast areas of national parks and federal lands. When federal park rangers are involved you can usually bet you will receive a federal charge as opposed to a state charge. Keep in mind the federal system is a completely different animal to what the Utah state system involves. Not all Utah Criminal Defense Lawyers handle federal cases, we do. We can represent you in a federal marijuana charge or any other type of federal criminal case.
