Additionally, because he represents Utah defense attorneys in current legislative issues, he has the most up to date knowledge of changes and developments in Utah criminal law.

Steve received his Juris Doctorate degree from Brigham Young University’s J. Reuben Clark School of Law. While attending law school, he was chosen to participate on BYU’s National Trial Advocacy Team, Moot Court Team, and Law Review. He also received top honors in multiple trial, appellate, and negotiation competitions.

Testimonials

"I was charged for something trivial and I panicked. I was in a terrible situation with apprently no way out. Steve was able to dismiss my case and close the case so that I would have no problems applying to professional school. He is a terrific attorney."

"I would just like to say I had a WONDERFUL experience being a Client of Steve Burton. Mr. Burton was kind, knowledgeable, informative and successful in helping me achieve what I hopped for which was a positive ending to my criminal case as well as keeping my drivers licence. My charges consisted of a MIP (Minor in Possession) and Falsifying Information to a police officer. I was made a deal of taking a plea in abeyance which basically in my situation gives me a chance to work this off my record. I'd recommend Intermountian Legal for anyone who found themselves in a pickle."

"Steve really helped me turn a mistake into a lesson that didn't hurt my future."

"Steven Burton is the kind of guy you wish you knew about so you didn't have to search the web for an attorney. From the first moment, his concern for my case and his professionalism were obvious. He took all my concerns seriously and flwalessly answered all my questions. After careful consideration and work, Steven got all the chargers dropped against me , while making sure it was the right thing to do. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone and everyone. His reliability and professional excellence are beyond reproach and his talent reflects great credit upon himself, Intermountain Legal, and even Attorneys in general. Thank you Steven."
