About me

I am Joseph Jardine.  Let me introduce myself.  I have been practicing law for 15 years.  I decided to hang a shingle out of law school.  My firm grew over the years to include up to 4 attorneys with a large support staff.  I found that a large law practice brought with it a large headache and subsequently downsized.  


I am currently operating a one attorney firm with 2 paralegals and some additional support staff.  Both of my paralegals have over 20 years experience.  I have handled a wide array of cases throughout my career from criminal defense to personal injury to business litigation.


I graduated from BYU in 1997 with a BA in English.  I then attended law school at the University of Idaho, in Moscow, Idaho, graduating in 2000.  I am licensed to practice law in both Utah and Idaho.


On a personal side, I have lived in Davis County, Utah for the last 15 years.  My wife and I have been married now for 17 years.  I grew up in Washington State, but moved to Utah after law school.  I enjoy playing chess, tennis, and spending time with my wife and children.

    I have worked with Joseph in several capacities for many years. He is well respected and well known as one of the premier and most experienced criminal defense attorneys on the Wasatch Front. His commitment to his clients is, frankly, unparalleled.

  • Sean B Druyon

    Joseph and I have worked on matters over the years. He is a zealous advocate, and not afraid to challenge the prosecution at all. He is also a great friend. When I first started my practice 13 years ago, Joseph, although only being out on his own for a year, encouraged me to give it a shot and hang my own shingle. I had been working for a large firm in Salt Lake, so making the jump to being solo was a little intimidating. But Joseph's confidence was contagious. I soon felt like I, too, could be successful and could make it. Joseph exudes success. Joseph is persuasive not only in arguing legitimate legal authority, he is also persuasive in his body language, in his attitude, and in the positive energy he exudes. Juries pick that up. That is why Joseph is such a successful advocate.
