Legal problems involving your organization or your real property can cause a lot of stress. They often jeopardize your ability to make money in the short or long term. Or, they expose you to the risk of losing a significant amount of money in one fell swoop. In addition, you do not have the time or the desire to worry about them. Even small legal problems can be overwhelming.
I make it my goal to take the stress and worry off of my clients’ shoulders. I have helped organizations and individuals resolve and avoid legal problems for more than a decade.
In 2016, 2017, and 2018, I was selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star, an award given to a small percentage of attorneys based on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. I have handled numerous civil litigation matters and have represented many businesses of all sizes, including some of the biggest financial institutions in Utah, and many real estate owners.
When you hire me as your lawyer, you can have peace of mind in knowing that:
I will diligently and efficiently take the burden off of your plate and go to work to find the best legal outcome and the best path forward.
I will communicate with you regularly and will be readily available and highly responsive to you by cell phone and email.
I will give you thoughtful recommendations, opinions, and options throughout the process and will discuss with you the pros and cons of each.
I will have the knowledge and experience required to find and appropriately analyze the essential answers and solutions.
I will be ethical, honest, and fair.
