Most attorneys charge hourly rates, but that incentivizes them to drag things out unnecessarily. Instead, Craig charges a flat rate up front; we do not surprise clients with additional charges down the road.
When we get the police reports and other evidence, we will sit down at the office to discuss the strength of the evidence, your goals, and pros and cons of choosing various options.
Craig creates a unique "recipe" of classes/treatments for you to proactively complete in order for his firm to approach the prosecutor for a favorable plea offer (unless we are asking for an outright dismissal). Once you have successfully completed the "recipe," we will review the presentation email before sending it to the prosecutor.
We will attempt to minimize the number of court hearings you attend. 90% of Craig's clients' cases are resolved on or before their 2nd court hearings.
A case against a Springville High School teacher accused of sexual battery has been ordered dismissed by the Utah Fourth District Court in Utah County. His lawyer issued a statement that said in part:
“We want to thank the Utah County Attorney’s Office for taking another look at this case, given the totality of circumstances, and acting in the interests of justice to dismiss this case. Mr. Fredrickson was innocent on February 21, 2020, on July 15, 2021, today, and all times in between. No crime occurred and he has been exonerated of these false allegations.” – KJZZ
A Roy High School teacher charged with enticing a minor for sex tried to enter a surprise early guilty plea Wednesday, but a prosecutor objected, saying it may interfere with a potential federal prosecution.

His attorney, Craig Johnson of Provo, said he had filed earlier in the day a statement in advance of plea, a defendant’s formal notification of admitting charges. – Standard Examiner
“One DUI is serious enough, but multiple ones where we see someone who obviously hasn’t got the message and hasn’t got treatment — the motivating factor is here the behavior needs to change…We are going to try to help him do that through the judicial system.” – KSL
