Attorney Profile

For me, the most rewarding part of being a lawyer is simply helping people. Since I became a lawyer in 2005, I have helped many individuals and businesses understand, enforce, and protect their legal rights and interests.

For instance, I assisted Kesha B. and Shari L. in obtaining custody of their children. I helped Elmer P. and Joseph F. establish regular parent-time with their kids. I advised Mike S. and Mike J. regarding the purchase of a business. I drafted business and employments agreements for Manny C. and Jimmy G. I helped Loretta C. and Lois T. complete their estate planning which brought them peace of mind. I aided Mark B. and Paul R. in setting up their asset protection plans. I helped Gentry I. and Rebecca H. obtain a fresh start via bankruptcy.

I have dedicated myself and my career to helping my clients with their legal matters. I pay meticulous attention to every detail in a client’s case because I understand how important it is to them. I routinely communicate with clients in the evenings or on the weekends in order to accommodate their schedules and respond timely. I look forward to showing you the difference that the right attorney can make in your life.

I am also civic-minded. I have taken on numerous pro-bono cases and I am on the Modest Means panel through the Utah State Bar. I have been a volunteer on the board of several charitable organizations, such as Senior Contributions and KTDA Kids. It is important to me to give back to the community.

When I am not working, I am spending time with my family. I am married with four wonderful children. My kids enjoy all sorts of different activities, including art, playing the guitar, swimming, acting, soccer, bike riding, and basketball. I have been a volunteer coach for many of their activities.

When possible, we travel as a family to Oregon, which is where my wife and I are from originally. We love visiting the Oregon coast, as there is nothing quite like the ocean air, fresh seafood, and relaxing environment.

I hope that this introduction helped you to understand more about me. I look forward to meeting you and discussing how I can help you.
