Great service won twice!
I have used Angilee in two cases regarding my son William. One was a protective order regarding my son. We had one both cases! We would highly recommend Angilee to anyone going through this mess some people put us through. Thank you Angilee again.

Angilee is honest, caring, and wise
When I needed help after being served papers filled with false accusations , Angilee Dakic was there. Her knowledge of the law, her diligent research, and her finesse of valid argument in court prompted immediate vacate of the injunction. My husband and I are forever grateful for Ms. Dakic, and Ms. Wiley for their help.

Excellent Service
I can't say enough about the services of Angilee Dakic, Nicole Wiley and actually the entire staff of Pearson Butler. I worked with Angilee for over a year and half on a difficult case that she was able to bring to a satisfactory conclusion. The communication and quality of service was above reproach. I would not have any reservations recommending her or the firm of Pearson Butler.

Tribal Law - Divorce Case
I have been working with Angilee and Nicole for over a year concerning my divorce and ongoing issues. Because I am out of state, Angilee and the team has taken the necessary steps to ensure I am well represented in Tribal Court. With all my personal issues, such as health, work, and school, Angilee relieves me from the added stress of court issues so that I can focus on what I need to do for me. Tribal Court can be difficult to deal with, but again, Angiiee does her work and takes care of it all. I have trust in her work and knowledge. Without her help, I would truly be lost. I am very grateful and blessed to have a wonderful lawyer to help get me through some hard and sensitive times.

Custody Case
I hired Angilee Dakic after using 2 other attorneys based off referrals and finally decided I was done and was going to find one on my own. One with my beliefs, I felt I could trust and that I felt would work hard for me. I don’t think I could’ve picked a better attorney! I was in a custody case that was already going on 6 years and hadn’t made any headway. After hiring Angilee it was crazy my case started to move and we are actually going somewhere and should have it final’d this year. I have had other attorneys tell you what you want to hear or promise you somethings they can’t get and that’s not what I want. I wanted someone who is honest with me and will tell me what all the risks are with any of my potential moves which she did so that way I could make an educated decision and try to take as much emotion (as possible) out of it. I always felt that she rally had my back and my only regret is that I didn’t find her from the start. Her paralegal Nicole is also very knowledgeable and is also someone who has been extremely helpful in my case. I believe these two together make a fantastic team and I am couldn’t be more happier that I found them. So much so I have referred several people to them who have hired them and have also told me they are so happy with what they have done for them.

Smooth Divorce Experience
Angilee was absolutely wonderful to work with. My ex and I had been separated for over a year and I felt very intimidated by the divorce process until I consulted with Angilee. She was very reassuring and helped me understand all the steps. I hired her and everything went very well. I especially appreciated the communication. I always knew where we were in the process and what to expect next. I would definitely hire her again if I have any legal needs in the future.

Earth Angels do exist, Angilee Dakic is one.
Angilee Dakic is an outstanding attorney! Honestly, I had been going through a highly toxic divorce the past 3 years. Broke. Devastated. Feeling hopeless representing myself and questioning if this nightmare would ever end. As well as loosing faith in our leagal system. Then, Angilee shows up like the Angel she is. If your looking for an honest, genuine, very logical straight to the point attorney she's it! She works fast, keeps you centered and on point with the end goal. Makes sure that the communication is always present, leaving you feeling heard and sincerely cared for. Angilee did all of my work Pro Se. She did not have to take on the amount of work that she did. She chose too. Because she is a remarkable person! My confidence in the legal system I is now hopeful knowing she is a part of it. Angilee did not just change the outcome of my experience. She helped restore the faith and hope back to my heart. I will forever remember what she did for me. I highly recommend her! I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with her.

She one of the elite!
Angilee Dakic changed my life. She’s been my legal counsel for about 10 years. She was my rock through a pretty nasty divorce and custody battle. A few years later she helped see me through revisiting custody and then an appeal. Because of Angilee’s extensive knowledge of the law and great guidance we prevailed in court every time. I can’t begin to express how great a lawyer and person she is. Being a man in the state of Utah, I’ve felt like the cards were stacked against me in the fight for custody of my daughter but Angilee advocated for me and never gave up. She’s straight and to the point. She never fluffed anything or told me what I wanted to hear just to appease me . She told me what would help me in my situation and always let me know what to expect. She is a true elite member of the legal system and I would give her the highest recommendation!
