Testimonials

When faced with a false accusation and unjust prosecution for a sexual assault it, was of the utmost importance to hire the best lawyer possible. For my family, that person was Cathy Green. She is not only incredibly smart, diligent, knowledgeable, ethical and tough as nails, but also has a heart of gold. A great defense lawyer fights honestly with the law on her side, communicating both in writing and orally with the investigator, prosecutor, judge, jury and client. Cathy's thoughtful, truthful and frank assessments made it easy to quickly build a strong relationship even during the most difficult of times. To this day, I value her opinion and would seek her counsel again. To be represented by Cathy, means you can stand tall and proud, knowing the best and brightest is working hard on your side. It was absolutely the right decision to trust Cathy Green with my son's life and I can think of no higher compliment.

My story is one that no parent would want for their child. Drug addiction, unfortunately, has entered the lives of so many families. My son was not spared. Due to several family tragedies, my son's illness became such that he acted in uncharacteristic behavior, and as a result, he was charged with very serious felonies. From the very beginning, Phil Utter did not judge but was compassionate to our situation. He saw beyond the criminal charges and saw my son and our family as good people. Phil was respectful, professional and straightforward as to what to expect. Being a mother, I bombarded Phil during the entire time with email after email. He took the time to respond courteously to them all, always quieting my fears. Rest assured, you never have to doubt Phil Utter and his method of handling your case. He believed in my son and saw his worth and potential. Phil was able to convey that to the State. The end result for my son's case was something that I truly believe, with all my heart, that no other attorney could have achieved. At the time of our final hearing, every attorney in the Courtroom shared how impressed they were at Phil's end result for our son. Phil Utter is a skilled attorney with exceptional knowledge of criminal law, and you throw in being a decent, caring human being, then you will never go wrong in retaining him as your attorney.

When we learned our son faced a serious criminal allegation, we were blindsided and had no idea where to turn. Fortunately, we were referred to Cathy Green and she immediately seized control of the situation. Cathy is a highly skilled, seasoned attorney who has impeccable judgment and a tireless work ethic. She was always available to talk to us, patiently answering all of our questions and helping us to regain a sense of control during what felt like a Kafkaesque legal process. As a result of Cathy’s dedication and hard work, our son was completely exonerated and has fully resumed his life. Cathy is both compassionate and tough, and there is no one you would rather have in your corner when facing our criminal justice system. We will forever be grateful.

A few years ago I ran into some serious legal trouble and was fortunate enough to be represented by Phil Utter of Green & Utter in Manchester, NH. Phil understood what was at stake for me and after a very thorough interview explained where I stood legally and what I might expect. He is a compassionate man and an excellent lawyer who took the time to get to know me and all of the aspects of my case. Phil's expertise in navigating the legal system and understanding the law is unparalleled and he was able to guide me through a very difficult time in my life. I would highly; and without reservation recommend Phil Utter and the firm of Green and Utter to anyone with legal problems who is looking for an attorney who "will go the extra mile."

Dear Attorney Utter:

You have assisted us for greater than a year to obtain the best result possible for our son when he needed it most. We are grateful for your experience, intellect and knowledge on how to position his matter for this best result.

What you may not know is that we, as a family, were floundering through difficult times when this incident took place. You gave us another chance to work at our family relationships and we have come out far stronger and closer than we started. We love and trust each other and communicate to a much greater extent. While this may not be directly related to something you did or didn't do, I believe you played an important role in that process as well.

When I faced a difficult legal situation, the best decision that I made was retaining Attorney Cathy Green (Green & Utter). I was treated as a person, not as a case or problem. Everyone was responsive and gave me their undivided attention. I received excellent legal counsel and benefited from Attorney Green's expertise, experience and her relationships. Every decision that had to be made was mine, but I received a full range of options and superb advice. I recommend Green & Utter without reservation to any person who needs quality legal representation provided in a concerned and compassionate manner.
