My former lawyer represented me at pretrial, reducing my charge from DUI to impaired driving. Then he left me. Called Mr. Bangerter this morning to see if he’d represent me at trial. In 15 minutes, he told me exactly what I needed to do to be ready for trial. Said that I just need to show the judge that I’ve accomplished everything he asked for at pretrial. Saved me a LOT of money! Call Mr. Bangerter first BEFORE any of the others!!! Thank you!!! Rachel

Incredible lawyer! Jarom was very quick and responsive as well as thorough and attentive. My case that he handled is a year old and he got me a really good deal. Then, over a year later, after I thought this case wasn’t an issue anymore, the court messed up my case and gave me a charge that would’ve been detrimental to my career. BUT, I reached out to Jarom and even though the case was old and he could’ve brushed me off, he contacted the court right away and had the situation straightened out within 3 days. He’s quick, efficient, and cares about his clients. When I first called the court myself, they didn’t really care. But when Jarom contacted them, moves were made. Trust this man with your case! He knows what he’s doing.
