Practice area

While growing up my dad worked as a logger and truck driver, just like everyone else in our town. I’ve never met a more humble, kind, and hard-working person in my life. Dad worked 10-12-hour days and would stay in logging camps for long periods of time. My two brothers and I would tend to our small farm while he was away. We’d miss him, especially when things went wrong.

I live in Salt Lake City now. Sometimes feel like I am a million miles from home. I work in an office with a nice chair and custom desk. I wear dress shoes and slacks, not boots, jeans and a flanel jacket. Occaisonaly I wonder if I made the right choice because my life feels foreign to me sometimes. I feel like I don’t belong. Part of me wishes I was home logging, cutting firewood, bucking limbs from trees, milking cows and doing farm work. I miss the humble ‘salt of the earth’ folks. Those that work hard every day, rain or shine. It is their blood, sweat, and tears that make the world turn. These are my people and I am one of them.

As an attorney I sue insurance companies on behalf of people that get hurt at work. I’m not a silk-stocking downtown corporate or insurance defense lawyer. I help real people with real problems. I help those that sacrifice their bodies for their work. Let's face it, your employer and the workers' compensation insurance company don't care about you. You'll be replaced in a week if you can't do the work.

I promise that  I will treat you like family and I will match your blood, sweat, and tears with my own before I am done with your case. When I sit down with you, I see myself, my dad and other family members. I remember times when he couldn’t work because he was hurt. I remember neighbors who were killed or lost limbs while at work. I remember the guys at the sawmill who would count by using their missing fingers. 

My dad taught me that any job done well and with integrity was something to be proud of. I am proud of where I come from. I am proud of where I am and I am proud to help the David’s of the world slay Goliaths. I know I made the right decision to become a lawyer and can help you with your case.

Found A Savior After 4 Years of Workers' Compensation Hell!
After wasting 3 years with what I felt was a do-nothing attorney fighting the workers compensation system, I was introduced to Corbett & Gwilliam. When I first met Aaron Gwilliam he was not what I expected of an attorney. He was very downhome and I was very comfortable meeting with him. He was not the stereotypical starched suit and tie attorney that I was used to. He was able to get great results in about 6 months. He was extremely helpful, informative and communicated every step of the way. He was able to achieve far more than I expected in such a short amount of time. He was able to settle my matter for more money than anyone had led me to believe was possible. I would highly recommend Aaron to anyone that needs an attorney.

Gave Hope when there was no hope
Aaron helped me thru an almost 3 year battle to get justice with Workers Comp. I lost all hope of getting any justice. Aaron fought for me. Aaron is honest and straight forward attorney. I am thankful for him and his wonderful Staff. Our battle is over and I did get some justice. I recommend him to anyone who needs help. He will be in your corner and He will tell you the truth.

What Aaron Gwilliams did for me.
Unlike some Lawyers, he is accessible. Whenever I had questions I could call his office and speak to his staff and many times reached him directly. If he was not available he called me back that day or the next. I didn't have to call again. He has always given me straight forward, honest answers that were clear and to the point. He meets with me and lets me talk. He never makes me feel like my questions are unimportant. I always felt he was with me all the way and gave me the best advise for my situation. His staff is responsive and very helpful.

Worker's compensation problems
Aaron Gwilliam was extremely helpful with our Workers Comp case. Aaron was courteous, respectful, listened and explained things very well. Also Aaron's pricing was very fair. We were at a loss with Workers Comp constantly trying to push us around and cut us off to save a buck. Trust me the only interest Workers Comp has in mind is their own. You should never be made to feel like Workers Comp made us feel. It was a joke and Aaron put a stop to that immediatly. We met with Aaron and he promptly informed Workers Comp and the Labor Commission that he would be representing us. The harassing phone calls and letters stopped immediately. Aaron promptly began complicated legal process. He worked closely with Workers Comp and their attorneys and made sure they could no longer take advantage of us. Aaron answered all of our questions throughout the whole process. He fought so hard for us and was able to get us the best settlement possible. We highly recommend Aaron if you are ever feeling harassed or like Workers Comp is not looking out for your interests . He is Amazing, knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. Don't let the insurance companies push you around call Aaron and he will stop the harassment and get you what you deserve.

AWESOME!!!
We hired Aaron for our adoption case and we had a few bumps in the road monetarily but that didn’t defer Aaron and his team from working in our case. They were super courteous, professional and understanding. They never made us feel as if they were too busy to tend to our needs. It was pretty awesome that we even got money back!!! We didn’t use all of the funds in the retainer and as soon as the case was completed the check was waiting the same day! I highly recommend Aaron and his team! They made this a super awesome experience instead of a dreadful one as we’ve had with previous attorneys!

Excellent lawyer
Aaron has been great to work with on our workmen's compensation case. We went into this with no knowledge of workmen's comp's procedures. He was very knowledgeable and fought hard to get a fair settlement for us. He went above and beyond! He is an excellent attorney, and a great person. We highly recommend him as an attorney

Adoption Case
Aaron represented my family and I on an adoption case for my wife to become my sons legal mother and guardian. My family and I have been lucky to have found such a good attorney who cares and is extremely knowledgeable. A good attorney is very hard to find in family law. Aaron is aggressive when needed and still compassionate. I will use Aaron in the future if needed (hopefully not) and will recommend him to anyone else I might know who could use his expertise.

Great Lawyer for sure!
I worked with Aaron Gwilliam through my divorce and have had many questions since. Aaron took what was a very crappy process and made it easier on me. He is and has been very honest and upfront about my requests, questions, concerns and constant changes a divorce with children can be. I plan to, and will be working with Aaron in the near future to re-evaluate Parent-Time and my decree overall. It's very reassuring to know that he is there, in my court to help me when I need him. Thank you Aaron and Corgett & Gwilliam for all your hard work to make tough situations easier.

Aaron Gwilliam Review
Mr. Gwilliam is an excellent attorney. I hired him to handle my divorce and because of his knowledge, professionalism and counsel my divorce went smoothly. He is very informed on the law and processes involved in handling family law cases. He offered sound advice throughout the process. Any time I had a question or concern he addressed it quickly and ensured I was taken care of in the best way. I would definitely hire Mr. Gwilliam again.

Small client, great service
We had a small case that we took to Aaron Gwilliam, and despite it being a small issue, we felt our case was being treated as important as any to Aaron. He completed the necessary work, kept us up to date, and completed everything in a timely manner. Great experience during a less-than-great time in our lives.

Honest, Reliable, and Accomodating
I researched every attorney in my area and after reading reviews and then meeting with Aaron Gwilliam, the 5 star reviews are spot on! He was the most honest, and reliable attorney out there! He was so good to me and my family at a hard and difficult time. He is so good at what he does, but also understands people and knows that when most people are there to meet with them they are going through hard situations in their lives. He was so accommodating to work with and got us in quickly. From the time we decided the divorce was necessary to signed paperwork was a week. I would highly recommend him to anyone!d The staff was also amazing and you will be treated well from start to finish.

Very Professional
The circumstances surrounding my case made Aaron's job difficult, He had less than a week to review and investigate my case. He was very professional and explained every step to me. At the end of that week, he was able to do more for myself and my daughter than we could have ever expected. I would highly recommend him,

Honest and Ethical!
Aaron handled a family divorce and not only represented both parties fairly and with kindness but worked well with the everyone involved. He was quick and thorough as well. All divorces are painful and Aaron made it as smooth as possible. Within a few days we already had a meeting set up and terms were being discussed. Today paper work was signed. Thank you so much for helping our family!
