OUR GOAL IS TO ALWAYS OBTAIN MAXIMUM COMPENSATION FOR OUR CLIENTS TO ENSURE THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF LIFE.
I am a founding partner of Elegal, and have been practicing personal injury law for over 30 years. Within this time I have obtained jury verdicts and settlements totaling in excess of $25,000,000. I’ve had the opportunity of representing people who have been victimized by semi-truck accidents, construction accidents, and various types of professional malfeasance.
My practice is regional having tried cases from Laramie, Wyoming to Vernal, Utah. My national case experience ranges from California to Florida. I am one of three platinum level members of the Utah Association of Justice and served for years on its Board of Governors. I was also the primary drafter of the Model Utah Jury Instructions for Vehicular Accidents and Model Jury Instruction II for Professional Negligence. I enjoy speaking and working with less experienced lawyers so they can get the best result for their clients and better their legal skills.
Being an avid skier and also enjoying the wonders of the Utah’s hiking, mountain biking, and river rafting – I understand that although these activities include risks, they can sometimes only be made safer through legal action. When someone is seriously injured or killed through the fault of others I am not afraid to take on large or small companies to benefit my clients.
