HONEST, KNOWLEDGEABLE, AGGRESSIVE. WWW.QUACKENBUSHLEGAL.COM.

Devin Quackenbush was born and raised in Utah County, Utah.  He became interested in the law at an early age. During his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University, Devin interned for the FBI in Quantico, Virginia.  From his experience at the FBI, Devin's interests in the law increased and he decided to pursue a career as an attorney. 

Devin went to law school at Creighton University where he was the Executive Editor of the Creighton Law Review.  He was published in the 42nd volume of the law review for his case note on child immunizations and religious exemptions.  During and after law school, Devin found opportunities in Alaska, beginning with working for the District Attorney's Office in Palmer, Alaska.  Devin passed the Alaska Bar Exam and was offered a position as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Eric Smith of the Alaska Superior Court. Working as a judicial law clerk for Judge Smith, Devin was exposed to a variety of cases from attorneys representing people seeking their day in court.  As a judicial law clerk, Devin gained a unique perspective of why some techniques utilized by lawyers are more persuasive than others.

After his clerkship term ended, Devin accepted a position at a prominent law firm in Anchorage, Alaska. Devin represented clients in cases involving professional liability defense, municipal litigation, appellate practice, employment and labor law, products liability, commercial litigation, and professional licensing issues.  Devin also assisted in cases for high-profile politicians, multiple insurance companies, as well as for heavy equipment, helicopter, firearm and a number of other product manufacturers.

Although he was successful in Alaska, Devin decided that his home state of Utah is where he wanted to be. Devin returned to Utah and became licensed to practice law in Utah.  Devin's successful practice continues to involve the same areas of law that he was involved with in Alaska.  In addition to those areas of the law, Devin's practice has expanded to include personal injury law, family law, contracts, real estate and wills/estate planning.   Devin discovered that often good people and businesses find themselves in precarious situations with the law and need quality legal representation to pursue their rights. Devin endeavors to help these people and businesses by aggressively representing their interests. Devin's track record of success in Utah has benefited people from all walks of life.

Highly recommend
I am 100% satisfied with the work that Devin has done for me. He was always upfront, fair, and honest about everything. He was very knowledgeable about the laws and regulations. I hired him for my divorce and again about 2 years later for some custody restrictions. I was completely satisfied with all the work he did for me. I would use him as my attorney again if ever needed and would HIGHLY recommend him to any of my friends and family!

Best decision
I would highly recommend Devin. I started out with someone else representing my divorce/custody case and was very unhappy with them. When I switched over to Devin it was the best decision I could have made. He went above and beyond my expectations. He took time to explain everything to me and always kept me informed of what was going on. He is the best!

Treats a client as a peer and a friend
For years now, I have relied on Devin's advice in my high conflict (despite my open mindedness) case. He looks for positive outcomes and does try to move toward those while not running my financial situation into jeopardy with large legal bills.

So thankful
Devin has been working on my case that includes an international abduction and horrible false claims against me and my family. I can't tell you how grateful and impressed I am with all the work he put into my case. My divorce has drained all my energy, and money with endless court cases outside of the country. When I met Devin, I knew I had to have him on my case. He's honest and understood all the details from the beginning. Devin is a very fair minded attorney and his team has shown nothing but dedication, caring and empathy towards the entire situation. He had my back and trusted me, and knew how to defend my case, despite of all the false claims that were thrown my way. I would trust any difficult case to him based on his work ethics, his intuition, and his incredible knowledge and passion. In the name of my family, THANK YOU, we appreciate the incredible legal work you did on my behalf. The Mitchell Family It's so comforting to know that you have the very best at your side when times are tough.

Awesome Lawyer
I worked with Devin to facilitate my divorce. My partner and I have a daughter together and Devin and Wyatt did an amazing job making sure everybody was happy and got what they wanted. We settled quickly and the resolution was fair. Their're entire crew are incredibly knowledgeable and the best in the business in my opinion. It is an expensive service but you will save a ton of money in the long run. Cannot recommend them enough for family law matters. I'm beyond thrilled with the service the firm provided.

Honest, dedicated and caring
From the beginning Devin was 100% committed to my case. He acted fast and was always on top of his game at all times. I had some much evidence, between pictures and text, they did such a good job going through it all and preparing it for court. He understood my concerns I had of my daughters father. He was honest to me about what to expect. He thinks with a reasonable head and helped me understand why some of my requests weren’t very reasonable and always had a second best alternative he knew a judge would go for. And because of that I got everything I asked for. He likes to get a case settled. Not drag it on for months to years. Because of Devin and very friendly team I now feel at ease when my daughter has her visitiation with her dad. If you are looking for a lawyer who cares and is thorough, Devin is what you need!

Great Lawyer
I hired Devin to help me with a custody case for my 12-year-old daughter. Her mother was moving to Louisiana. Devin helped me fight the case and keep my daughter here in Utah. It was a hard case but Devin worked hard and helped me get an agreement that got me more than I could have hoped for. The best attorney! I will definitely be sending my friends and family to him if they ever need a good lawyer.

Legal Help Like a True Friend
I hired Devin to take over a problematic case. He did a fantastic job. He valued my ideas, explained the law clearly. He handled my ex-spouse and her illogical non-compromising shenanigans effectively. I felt like all that I spent with Devin and his firm was totally worthwhile and made progress on my case. That was not true of other attorneys I had hired previously. I HIGHLY recommend Devin.

Fights for what is right!
Devin did amazing with my husband's case vs his ex. My husband wasn't able to receive any parent time with his daughter since his ex was making all of the decisions and controlling every situation on when their daughter can come over and visit and when she had to leave. She wasn't even able to stay overnight at our house. Devin fought for what was right which was for my husband to get that parent time with his daughter. She is now able to have an overnight stay and spend time with her father and siblings where there's no outside control. We have been very happy with the outcome of the case and highly recommend Devin Quackenbush as an attorney. He's fair, very firm and is highly motivated when it comes to fighting for a case.

Awesome lawyer for divorce and custody case
Devin has gone above and beyond since I first contacted him. I had a time sensitive matter that needed to be handled asap. I was waiting for a highly recommended lawyer to call me back and make time for an appt for me. I saw Devin online and gave him a call. Not only did he get back to me the next day, he set up my appt for the day after that and since I couldn't find child care for that day, he graciously said my young children could come too. He was unfazed by the kids in the room and we were able to do the consultation and get the ball rolling. He's quick to return calls, quick to handle issues, very comptetent and professional. With his help, we built a strong case to where my ex husband decided to settle. I highly recommend him for anyone needing services.

Devin is honest, hard working, knowledgeable and gets the job done!
I came to Devin after going through a messy divorce with a really disappointing divorce lawyer. Devin cleaned up the other attorney's mess and the outcome was really what I hoped for but didn't know was possible. He worked multiple cases for me. Devin walked me through everything step by step. He always answered my calls and questions. He worked hard on my case and it showed. He is professional and compassionate. Devin is someone I feel safe and confident with on my side in a courtroom. He taught me my rights and helped me through difficult situations. He made my situation a lot less frightening and has given me the confidence to move forward. When I hear of anyone needing an attorney I immediately recommend Devin.

Estate Planning
Devin has set up an estate plan for me. I find peace of mind knowing my kids, life insurance, etc. is taken care of the way I want it done. Devin was able to get it back to me promptly and was able to review and discuss it in length so I knew what was in the legal document before he finalized it. I found Devin very knowledgeable and very fair. I have hired Devin two other times in the past and have never been disappointed with the job he has performed. I highly recommend him to anyone with a legal issue!

Great Attorney
Devin did an outstanding job revising the covenants for our subdivision. He was very efficient and professional. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.
Posted by Eli | March 8, 2015
Gun Trust and Suppressor Trust
I had Devin put together a gun trust to register my suppressor under. The trust he put together was thorough and allows me to transfer ANY of my firearms that may become "illegal" into it so that I can transfer them to anyone in the trust (family). Without this trust the ATF could come and seize my firearms upon my death. Now they will transfer to anyone in trust. The trust Devin put together also allowed me to get my suppressor quickly and flew through the ATF process with ease.
