About Dain Smoland

Attorney Biography

I grew up in Oregon, a state where they’ve finally (and wisely) decided to de-criminalize marijuana. Utah is not there yet-not even close. It might get there someday, but in the meantime I’ll continue to focus my practice on defending people charged with marijuana crimes.

I’ll be honest, I like these cases because I like the kind of folks I have as clients. And I also like these cases because they are interesting ones. They usually involve highway stops, warrantless searches, police interrogation, or K-9 sniffs, and very often the cops are right on the line between legal investigations and Constitutional violations. Sometimes the cops go way past the line. For that reason, it helps to have a lawyer on your case, to hunt down all the relevant evidence and look for 4th or 5th amendment issues that could either get it dismissed or get you a better plea deal.

My firm is not the oldest or the largest defense firm in town, but I’ve defended everything from Second Degree Felony cases (that’s for transporting over 100 pounds), to Misdemeanor Bs (that’s for the joint in the glovebox), in courts all over the state. And I enjoy what I do.

If you have a case anywhere in Utah and it’s related to marijuana, I’d be glad to discuss it with you, without pressure or obligation. (Really, I won’t give you the hard sell. It’s not in my nature, and I don’t think it’s necessary.)

Feel free to drop me an email.
