About Me

I love Utah and I love the outdoors. After law school, I could have chosen to live anywhere, but I decided to return home to the place I love. When I'm not working, you may find me bicycling, hiking, reading, or watching a movie.

    I've known Mr. Shafer since he was still in law school, and when he worked for a prosecutor's office in New York City. He is highly intelligent, knows the law, and is very ethical and careful in his work. You cannot go wrong with him as your attorney.
