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.

We think the size of our firm – eleven lawyers – offers you the best choice for a good dollar value.

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.
