Utah has some of the strictest drug laws in the country. At a time when many western states are moving to legalize, Utah is aggressively and often illegally continuing to wage a war on drugs.
In addition to arrests, Utah law enforcement is aggressively seizing cash and property in forfeiture actions. Profiling and illegal searches are commonplace and many Utah courts encourage the police state approach to cannabis and drugs. You need a lawyer who will just as aggressively fight for your rights.
Jim Bradshaw has been fighting against the war on drugs for 30 years. His record is unmatched in having battled and won the toughest of drug cases. With a particular passion for taking on the police when they conduct illegal roadside stops and searches Jim has fought and won significant victories of his clients.
