Josie Brumfield Experience


Josie Brumfield graduated from the University of Utah, S.J. Quinney College of Law in 2005. She has spent her legal career focused almost exclusively on criminal defense. As a law student, Josie served as a law clerk in the Appellate Division at the Salt Lake Legal Defender’s Association. Upon graduation, she was hired at LDA as an attorney in the Appellate Division. It was during a rebuttal during oral arguments in front of the Utah Court of Appeals when Josie realized her passion for criminal trial work and soon transferred to the Trial Division.

Josie also practiced criminal law in the private sector, representing clients in jurisdictions throughout Utah. In 2009, Josie opened a satellite office in St. George, operating as the office’s senior attorney for a notable law firm. This gave Josie not only a strong presence in Salt Lake City, but also throughout southern Utah.

Josie has conducted scores of criminal jury trials with a high level of success. Her practice is very motion centered, suppressing statements and evidence on the grounds that they were unconstitutionally obtained by law enforcement and therefore inadmissible. Josie believes that attention to every detail and possible legal strategy in the pretrial phase puts her clients in the best position for success should their case proceed to trial. Josie has extensive trial experience with DUI and assault charges and is a graduate of the Western Trial Advocacy Institute.

Josie E Brumfield Recommendation for her Knowledge of the Law and responsiveness to all my needs for my case.

Josie and her team proved to be a valued asset to my entire LIFE (please don't take this review lightly). I am an actual person that had the pleasure of Josie representing me; I am not affiliated with her firm and wouldn't normally have written a review like this if Josie hadn't been such a help to my family and me.

In one of the hardest of moments in my life (the potential loss of custody of my daughters to a state over 700 miles away) Josie and her team diligently took my case on full force and made all my concerns and needs a TOP PRIORITY.

I never once felt like I was at the "back of the list" or "not a valued client." Josie was always proactive in contacting me at anytime (even if things hadn't changed, they wanted to keep me appraised regardless of my case moving forward or not). This is UNIQUE for a firm, seeing that most of the time you sit on the back burner. Josie was ALWAYS there and ALWAYS willing to discuss my concerns.

In the end Josie and her team got me literally everything I needed to keep my daughters where they should be, at home in the state they have grown up in. I literally cannot put a price or value on the legal ability and knowledge Josie provided, all I can do is say "THANK YOU" and recommend Josie and her team to ANYONE that asks.

Competent and agressive representation

Josie helped me fight fraudulent charges on a store credit card. I had made my payments as scheduled and agreed upon. Yet, and unbeknownst to me, those people had changed the interest rate and payment amount, which resulted in a higher balance trapping me in the never ending game of collections that eventually led to a court case. Ultimately, the case was dismissed thanks to Josie's intervention and I have enjoyed peace of mind ever since. Not only was this a personal victory for me, but for any and all consumers who have ever found themselves in a similar situation. I am very happy with Josie, her knowledge, experience and professionalism. I would definitely recommend her services.

Tough, Intelectual, and Personable

Josie, Is a very knowledgable, tough attorney. When we got to court her vast knowledge of law was very impressive not only to me but the Judge also took notice. She is very organized and makes sure you are kept up to date the whole time your case is going. Though small in stature she is a giant in the courtroom. She uses her knowledge of the law to be aggressive and firm in her demeanor in the court room. Her passion towards the law and her client is very evident, I would recomend her to anyone and everyone.
