Honors & Accolades
Jeremy was the youngest lawyer in Utah to be named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine just three years after graduating from law school. A few years later, he was named a Super Lawyer for the Mountain States region, an honor he has received annually for the last 7 years. In addition, Jeremy was the youngest member selected to serve on the Utah Supreme Court’s Criminal Rules Committee, serving alongside prosecutors and judges to consider proposed amendments to the Utah Rules of Criminal Procedure.
In 2012, Jeremy was named Utah’s Non-White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers Magazine, and he was soon after honored as Utah’s White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer of the Year in 2014.
Jeremy has lectured frequently on criminal justice issues, giving his first lecture on the United States Sentencing Guidelines to CJA attorneys only two years after finishing law school. He has since lectured on a wide range of criminal justice issues on behalf of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), the Utah Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (UACDL), the Utah State Bar, and the Utah Criminal Justice Act panel. Jeremy has also been a guest lecturer at the University of Utah School of Law, and he lectured at law schools throughout Ukraine last year.
Trials & Appeals
An experienced trial lawyer, Jeremy has obtained acquittals in city, state, and federal courts on cases ranging from minor misdemeanors to capital homicide. In 2012, he was counsel in a highly publicized death penalty case involving allegations that his client murdered a female police officer with an AK-47. Despite an alleged confession, Jeremy’s client was acquitted of murder on the first day of jury deliberations. Weeks after that victory, Jeremy convinced the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office to dismiss a murder case against another client that had been pending since before Jeremy had finished law school.
Although most of his cases are at the trial court level, Jeremy is also an experienced appellate practitioner. In addition to prevailing on a host of appeals in the Ninth and Tenth Circuits, Jeremy won an appeal before the en banc Tenth Circuit in 2015. Notably, the appeal was decided 10-1 in the defendant’s favor and was authored by now Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. The appellate victory is believed to be the only en banc defense win from Utah in at least the last two decades.
In addition to his trial and appellate experience, Jeremy is qualified in Utah to handle death penalty cases as lead counsel. He has been co-counsel on three death penalty cases, including two that went to trial. No defendant was given the death penalty, and one client was acquitted of capital murder.
