Litigation Attorney | Nov 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I know her well, I trust her implicitly, and I have learned a lot from her: I have known Dawn for as long as I have been a lawyer. In fact, I actually met her before I was a lawyer, when I was working as a law school intern at the Salt Lake City Prosecutor's Office. I reported to Dawn and had her guidance as I was starting my legal career prosecuting. After working with Dawn on many matters prosecuting, including my first jury trial, I had the opportunity over the next several years to work opposite Dawn as adversaries. She is a great lawyer and a great person. I would not hesitate to hire Dawn as my counsel."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've worked with Dawn as a police officer and now as an attorney for more than 13 years. She always conducts herself in a professional manner and passionately represents her clients. She will give you an honest evaluation of your case and then strive to represent you to accomplish your goals. I highly recommend her as a person and as a lawyer."
