Our firm is client centered. We put a premium on listening to our clients, and we are going to take the time to fully understand the impact your injuries have had on your life and your family’s lives. You will leave your consultation with your questions answered and a plan specific to you to restore your life.

The legal industry has a big problem with treating people like a number; but to us, you are not a number, you are a valued member of our community. We treat each of our client’s cases as if they were a friend or family member. Our firm personally understands how important your case is and how long-lasting the effects can be if we don’t handle it correctly.

Many personal injury law firms assume that nearly all their cases are the same. They assume that most of their cases will settle, and they treat your case as if it is just another day at the office for them. We understand the impact your case has had on your life, and we will make sure the insurance company fully comprehends how you have been injured.

We keep caseloads intentionally low; we want to know our clients. Many other personal injury firms treat their clients like an assembly line with a high number of cases per attorney, we will never do that. You and your case are too important. We have the experience to know when to push the other side and when to pullback. We worked for insurance companies in the past, we know how they think. We know the strategies they use and how to attack those strategies. .

Our firm prepares each case as if we are going to trial, that level of preparation results in faster and higher settlement amounts for our clients. If the insurance company is not willing to offer a reasonable settlement offer, our firm is prepared to take your case to trial. We are here for you, and we will never back down until you receive the justice you deserve.

Life Saver!
Dan was amazing! My wife was in an accident and we didn't know where to turn. He helped connect with the right people and was able to close our case efficiently. Highly recommended!

Car accident
Daniel offered us an immediate consultation, which helped us make an informed decision about our case. We felt much more confident after speaking with Daniel about our options. He kept us well informed with each progression in the case. When the time came to go to court, he listened to all of our concerns and helped us feel comfortable in an unfamiliar setting. We won our case with greater compensation than we expected. Daniel was always easy to contact as we worked with him, and he genuinely seemed to care about us as people, and not just as clients.

After an auto accident it's a daunting task to get everything together. Feeling overwhelmed with everything I'm glad I found Dan. Dan helped take a stressful overwhelming situation and made it manageable. We are appreciative of his counsel.

Compassionate expertise
Mr. Garner is the kind of lawyer who will take the time to listen to what is important to you as his client. He has built his career on a desire to fight for those who need it most. Dan guided me through the legal process after a car accident. His compassionate approach helped me to feel valued as a person, not just a client.

Prepared and Caring
Dan is one of the best trial lawyers in Salt Lake City. He is always prepared and willing to go the extra mile for your case. I'm really happy with the results from my personal injury case. The process with them was seamless and easy. Anytime I hear about someone getting in a car accident I recommend him.

Best experience I’ve had with an attorney!
Dan Garner and his team are absolutely incredible at what they do! Everyone at the firm is always so kind, transparent, and quick to get back to me. Because of Dan, I ended up with more from the settlement than I had expected - and I am grateful!! I’m not surprised, because my sister referred me to White & Garner after her great experience with them. It’s a relief know exactly who I can count on if I ever need a car accident attorney in the future.

Operations Team Lead
Daniel Garner was the perfect blend of informative and not invasive. He explained everything in an easy to understand manner, and clarified what he needed to, but didn't overburden us with unnecessary detail. He and his clerks were always prompt with answers to our questions and we never had a problem getting in touch with them. Before our court appearance he was very informative and explained exactly what we could expect. He always made us feel like he would do what we wanted to do, and we never felt like he was pushing us to do something for his interest rather than ours. He was very friendly, and I think if we had met under different circumstances we could have been good friends.

Superior legal counsel
Mr. Garner gave my husband and I counsel for our estate planning. He researched a couple of legal and tax issues for us and got back to us immediately with concise and clear answers. We are very happy with his service and will continue to use him as needed for any future requirements. We highly recommend him.

Affordable High Level Service.
Review: In my past experience, I didn't always feel like I knew exactly where I stood, even though my previous lawyers promised to keep me updated. I had an entirely different experience with Daniel Garner. If something had to be done, I was notified the minute he was. He helped me keep my costs down and handled my case faster than I've ever had any handled.

Contract Review, LLC Setup, Business Negoitation Advice
Dan has set up 3 LLC's for me in the past few months, which went smoothly because he could explain the why's and why not's of the LLC vs S-Corp issues. He has reviewed important contracts that I have had to sign and has pointed out possible problems and consequently made changes to the contracts which were to the mutual benefit of both parties. I have had him attend business negotiation meetings with me where he was able to give me advice on legal issues based on the context of what I was trying to accomplish. He is smart, a good communicator, caring and proactive. I always want him sitting on my side of the table.

Great experience!
Dan has a very inviting personality and carries himself well. His knowledge of the kind of law I needed was apparent and I felt very secure. Asked a lot of questions I didn't think to ask and knew the responses and what route was best. I would definitely tell my friends about his expertise. Loved working with him and will work with him in the future.

Excellent Legal Advice
I contacted Mr. Garner with several questions regarding my recently established LLC. His initial interview covered all my questions as well as uncovering questions I hadn't thought about. Mr. Garner got back to me the next day with complete concise answers covering all of my concerns regarding the LLC as well as tax implications. I will be using him for all my future legal concerns.
