Welcome to the Utah County Attorney's Office

With twenty-nine attorneys and five detectives, we are the largest law firm in Utah County and have one of the larger detective bureaus. Together with our support staff of more than thirty legal assistants, paralegals and law clerks, we prosecute thousands of adult and juvenile felonies and misdemeanors every year. We also provide legal advice and representation to Utah County Government and investigate a small number of complex crimes and homicides.
