Small enough to care, large enough to specialize:

Most of our competitor attorneys in northern Utah work alone or in very small groups. This makes it difficult for even the best and most capable lawyers to narrow their practices. The largest Utah law firms have specialized departments which send out large legal bills. We don't like that either. We think the size of our firm – eleven lawyers – offers you the best choice for a good dollar value.

We offer FREE CONSULTATIONS in many practice areas! If you are facing a legal issue and have questions about how we can serve you or your family, please contact us anytime. We are happy to answer your questions regarding the law and your rights.

We listen to our clients and want the best outcome possible for your case. We promise to give you our best work and tell you the truth.

NOTE on lawyer specialization in northern Utah:
 Like doctors, Utah lawyers can choose practice areas they like. Unlike doctors, Utah lawyers don’t receive board certifications
in most legal specialties. When Utah lawyers say they specialize, they usually mean they have special training and experience which allows them to focus their practice on repeat work in the same type of case.
