About Me

I am the President and owner of Marc A. Austin, P.C. and have practiced law in Utah since 1998, licensed as both an attorney and Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I received a Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Accounting from Brigham Young University, and graduated magna cum laude from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU.


 


I specialize in probate, trust matters, estate planning, limited liability companies and other business entities, as well as complex tax matters. I worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP (PWC), a Big Four accounting firm, in Salt Lake City prior to beginning my law practice. I was named by Utah Business Magazine as one of Utah’s Legal Elite Lawyers in the area of Wills, Trusts & Estates. I currently serve as the chairman of the Utah County Estate Planners Roundtable, and as director and trustee of numerous non-profit foundations. I am married to a woman, Tami, live in Provo, and am the father of seven children.
