Peter Kern, Utah Criminal Law Attorney
Personal conviction about the constitutional rights for fair representation drives Peter Kern to excellence as a Utah criminal law attorney. Peter shares, “We have a nation that was founded on the principle that it is better socially to have guilty men go free than innocent men be convicted. In our modern society, it has swung to the other side. Most people seem more comfortable with the idea of innocent people being incarcerated than they are with a guilty person remaining free.”
In today’s judicial system if you don’t have a defense attorney, you will likely receive disproportionate punishment for your charges. Because the state casts such a wide net, defense attorneys are here to make sure you are on equal ground to the prosecutors, that the facts provided in court are correct, and that the evidence supports the charges.
Criminal defense and state prosecution are similar to the body’s skeletal and muscle system, which push against opposing forces to move forward. The state has a strong pull to prosecute a crime. Crimes are labeled at the maximum possible punishment when charges are brought. The system is not initially concerned with being just or appropriate. It is the defense attorney's responsibility to provide resistance to the prosecutors to force dismissal of egregious charges, reduce any remaining charges to appropriate levels, and to secure a sentence that is both just and appropriate.

5 Star Review -Courtney Pike
"I was given Peter Kern’s name as a high recommendation from another excellent lawyer who focuses on another area of law, so [he] told me that he wanted me to have [the] absolute best help with a court case and problem that I unfortunately had to deal with and was such a horrible stress for me I would never wish on anyone. I was not willing to let it hurt my name or my future & from the first call Peter listened so intently & immediately had so much information for me I would have never known, I now truly experienced & believe no one can know about the insanely intricate world of law & can so easily get lost in & wind up with less ideal outcome unless you get counsel & someone like Peter who has studied it & knows it very very well. I can say to anyone so genuinely the amount you spend for Peter (my total was pleasantly surprisingly less then I ever would have thought) or any attorney is worth every cent seeing the contribution it was to my life & I saw could be for anyone dealing with something against you in the law that is terrifying & can be so damaging to lives.
Peter helped me to clearly understand my situation & what we could do for absolute best outcome & was so supportive of what I decided to do but gave me best options & truth of what anything meant & what to expect. I was told by [the] prosecutor at first the “absolute best deal I could ever hope for & get” was on the table & to just quickly accept that & be grateful. It would have meant fines, years of it on my record, & the indignity of going to jail to let them take fingerprints & mugshots (that could of course be out on internet to possibly hurt or embarrass me or my children in future). I am really grateful Peter helped me to feel better right away with his very clear & great knowledge of the law &, he always answered my calls or emails so quickly, and I can’t of course promise this for anyone but with his hard work got my case FULLY DISMISSED NO CHARGES. I am so relieved & so happy I can’t even say. I truly can give him my full support & appreciation & would give his name to anyone that I loved or ever knew had a problem come up a defense lawyer could help with!"
