I totally recommend Garrett Handy!
I worked with Garrett for over two years while settling my case. I wanted to take that much time because I wanted to make sure I was healed, as best I could be, before closing the case. Garrett was patient and willing to wait. He took care of things quickly when I was ready. He answered my 5,000 questions. He always told me what he needed from me so I could keep all the medical bills, etc he would need. He never skipped on information but was honest and straight forward - and would explain things until I understood them. I felt like Garrett was more than a lawyer to me. He fought hard for me to get the maximums I deserved and truly took the time to understand my injuries and how they affected my life.

Excellent service and extremely good
My wife and daughter were injured by a driver who ran into their vehicle while travelling at freeway speeds on I-15. The other driver was cited and the responsibility for the accident was assigned to him. Even though this was the case, we tried for more than two years to get the insurance company to work with us to get treatment and damages paid for. The whole process was just so cumbersome and difficult until we finally decided to hire Garrett. From the day we hired him it was so much better and easier. We really didn't have to worry about anything after that. He was dealing with all of the things in the process that were just too hard for us to make work. He got things taken care of and was consistently working with us to make sure whe was taking things the direction that we wanted them to go. We felt in control of the process and that he was all about making sure that we were happy. In the end he made it all work out to our benefit in a way that we could have never come close to making happen on our own. This process is impossible without a good attorney to back you up. Garrett is great and we would hire him another 100 times if we were to need him. Hopefully, we won't ever need him again but it is sure nice to know that he is there if we do need him.

Garrett should be Best Lawer in Utah!!
I am grateful and amazed how professional and fast Garrett Handy worked on my case. My case was basically lost and only had a few months to start a lawsuit or lose it forever. I went to talk to Garrett. We reviewed my case. He was hesitant to take it since three lawyers took my case previously. The three of them did basically nothing with my case except to keep it in their office forever and I didn't know what was going on. One of those firms was Siegfried and Jensen; they are only known due to advertising, but have nothing close to what Garrett has: Lots of professionalism! After reviewing my case a couple of times, Garrett decided to take my case. He started working on it right away. We opened the case at the beginning of January and we had only until July to win or to lose. Well, surprisingly, five months later I got my first check as part of the settlement. Then in a month or two, I got the rest of the money. I even took a picture with Garrett for my personal file, since this was absolutely a won battle. Garrett, you and your team ARE AWESOME!! Glad to leave this review. May God bless you in your personal and business affairs.

Semi accident
On December 1, 2010 my wife and I were hit head on by a Semi. After dealing with the company that was at fault, my wife and I decided to move forward and hire an attorney. We found Garrett S. Handy to represent us. He was very proactive in on keeping us informed on what was going on and what the company was doing and saying. Not only did Garrett help us out but his staff did as well, they did an outstanding job, I could not have asked for a better person to represent us. I trusted him so much that I have hired him to complete an adoption for me and my Step Daughter. I would recommend him to anyone in search of looking for an Attorney, you will be very pleased with his service and his staff. Thanks for all your hard work and your dedication Garrett.
