The Cost of DUI in Utah
with Branson K. West

KUTV 2 News Interview with top Utah DUI and Criminal Defense attorney Branson K. West.

"I learned a lot by talking to this attorney."

Brian Mullahy of KUTV

We've helped people all over Utah reduce, drop and clear charges. Look what our customers have to say about us.


I had a great experience working with Branson. He always responded within a business day (usually within minutes/hours) and was courtius and professional at all times. Cost of representation was given to me upfront, and was reasonable. I also feel confident that he found the best possible resolution for my charges.
- Ryan Perez, Posted November 2nd 2023 on google
Great guy! Very professional. Would highly recommend:)
- Shellie, Posted October 13th 2023 on google
Great attorney and very intelligent. Very honest and trustworthy. He called me back literally with in 2 hours of calling his office. I believe him to be very qualified to represent me in the legal matters I was in. I trust him and most attorneys don’t even call you back ,but Mr. West will. Very good man.
- Brian Riley, Posted June 9th 2023 on google
Called Branson and left a message. Within minutes received a text that he was in court and would call later. An hour later he called, gave me great advice, and said he didn't want to charge me for something he felt I could do on my own. I followed his advice and things went pretty much exactly as he had explained. The outcome was better than I dared hope. I would highly recommend Branson West!!!
- Darin Clark, Posted May 24th 2023 on google
Very honest firm, can't say enough positive things about them. This is a law firm I would trust to represent me and my family members to protect our rights.
- Lucas Osborne, Posted March 6th 2023 on google
Very helpful and friendly. Always available or will call you back shortly.
- J MacNeal, Posted March 2nd 2023 on google
Branson is one of the most kind and loyal attorneys. He gave me great advise on a case. He took the time to answer my phone calls and texts. He really cares for his clients: and getting the best resolutions. I would recommend him to anyone in the Utah area. When you are going through a hard time----he really takes the time to coach you and listen. He is kind and I treats his clients with such good care.
- Emily Chu, Posted March 1st 2023 on google
Branson took care of my case exactly the way I thought it should have been. He and his team aka Hailee were and have been all I could have hoped for. I think I found him after a simple search brought his name up when he was doing an add or promotion. Sometimes things just click and this was one of those times. I would recommend him to anyone. If you find yourself in need of a fighter in your corner Branson is a good choice.
- Todd Macfarlane, Posted February 26th 2023 on google

- Steve Thompson, Posted January 26th 2022 on google
Branson West is a very honest hard working attorney that handled my case with the utmost respect. He was always very prompt when responding to any questions I had. If you happen to need a defense attorney in the Salt Lake City that will truly work for you, not make empty promises, and most certainly work for a fair price, his office would be my first call. He was just the advocate I needed for my situation. He did what he told me he would do for the original price he quoted for me. I believe in him and his ability 100%. He is now helping me finish everything up nearly three years after the case began. Thank you Mr. West! -Paul
