  • Thomas D Weber

    Abraham Bates is the most knowledgeable and experienced attorney (and in my opinion, one of the only competent voices) in Utah in the area of consumer foreclosure defense and plaintiff actions against mortgage lenders. As an attorney who has worked on many consumer actions, both I and my clients have found Abe's supplemental consultation and counsel to be absolutely indispensable. He is the only attorney that I would recommend for a mortgage borrower (whether in a commercial or consumer context) for lawsuits against mortgage lending institutions or banks.

    Mr. Bates is an attorney I confidently endorse to anyone in need of effective counsel. He is a fearless, dedicated and zealous advocate for all his clients. As a fellow attorney, I model myself after his strong example. You can't go wrong hiring an attorney like Mr. Bates.
