EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE


APPELLATE ATTORNEY SALT LAKE CITY

WE STRIVE TO BE SALT LAKE'S BEST APPELLATE ATTORNEYS

Sometimes an appeal is your only option when mistakes have been made by the court system or when you've received overly-punitive treatment from a judge. Many people believe the system will be fair and will achieve the correct result. But because the system and the people who are in it are flawed, mistakes are made. Appeals are known to be difficult and expensive, but if the errors are severe enough and will have significant consequences for your life, your best chance is to have the case overturned by an appeal.

Our firm handles all types of state law appeals, from the Utah Supreme Court and Court of Appeals to appeals de novo from justice courts. Our lead appellate attorney, Staci Visser is passionate about appeals and has had an impressive amount of success with the appeals on which she has worked. If you believe an appeal is your last chance to achieve a fair result in your case, you can schedule a consultation to discuss what an appeal would look like in your situation.

We Know Appeals and We Know What Works


We Have the Experience You Need

Appeals are very technical and require a specific skill set and knowledge of how the system works and what the judges want. At Intermountain Legal, we have handled appeals involving life sentences as well as cases involving other lifelong consequences such as lifetime sex offender registration and felony convictions that remain on someone's record for life and cannot be expunged. Because we've done various types of appeals on multiple levels, we have a good understanding of the critical aspects of handling appeals. Every appeal takes dozens and often hundreds of hours to research, prepare, write, and argue in court, but since we've been through the process and have shown we can have success, you can be confident that your case will be taken very seriously, and handled by people who know how to win.

Our Clients Matter To Us

Every day we strive to make a difference in our clients’ lives. We have seen the devastating effects the court system can have on people and we pride ourselves on being a firm that fights hard to make the system more fair and achieve justice for our clients. You can read our client testimonials, case results, and online reviews to see some of the results we have been able to achieve.

Super! 110%! Left no rocks unturned. After being wrongly accused and with falsified evidence, I lost my first trial. I went hunting for another attorney. Steve not only was professional in every aspect, he comes across as a friend not just to me but to the jury. Just the way he presents things in trial is top notch. A very plain speaker and does so in such a way that he gets his point across without coming off negative or bulldog-ish.
