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.
