About Jacquelynn

Learn Jacquelynn’s areas of practice.

I am a partner at the law firm Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson and have been practicing law since 1993.  As a personal injury attorney, I have the unique opportunity to help people who have been injured by the negligence of others.  Through the years, my cases have involved injuries and wrongful deaths arising from bicycle accidents, auto accidents, defective products and medical malpractice. 

In addition to my legal practice, I am also actively involved in the Women’s Law Caucus and serve on the Character and Fitness Committee for the Utah State Bar.  I enjoy speaking to groups and writing articles about topics that are relevant to the personal injury practice area.  I am also an avid cyclist and runner and enjoy scuba-diving and traveling with my family.

As a cyclist, I am particularly interested in helping fellow cyclists when they are injured.  My firm has represented many cyclists whose injuries have arisen from a variety of causes including failed tires and other defective bicycle parts as well as drivers who have carelessly crashed into cyclists causing serious injury and in some cases death.  We are very aware of the safety concerns that face cyclists in the Salt Lake valley and enjoy advocating for and representing cyclists in a variety of capacities.

Thoroughly impressed!!!
I don’t know how they did it! We had been stonewalled and completely ignored by the insurance companies that were liable after an accident. The degree to which the insurance companies ignored our claim was unprecedented. ECKO law firm managed to compel accountability and settle our case. We are thoroughly impressed by their performance and will share our experience with them to everyone we know.

Highly Recommended
I am incredibly grateful to Jacquelynn Carmichael, and also Candace Gleed. I cannot imagine having anyone other than Jackie representing me. Her experience, knowledge, insight, and professionalism are outstanding. It was so wonderful to have an attorney that I could completely trust, and who I knew genuinely cared about me, and treated me not only as a client, but also as a friend. I would highly recommend Jackie, Candace, and this firm to anyone seeking legal representation. They are the best of the best.

Wonderful Attorney
Jackie and her staff were wonderful in helping our family. Her staff was always kind and welcoming as we were also mourning the death of our mother. Jackie spent lots of time explaining the processes and helping us understand our rights.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
How can I even begin to say thank you!? As I write this review, I am fighting back the tears. I am not one to show emotion easily as I am a U.S. Marine having served in Operation Iraq Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. However after my injuries I had many more life devistating events take place. I lost everything including my wife and love of my life. I had just about given up hope, but Jacquelynn and Candace where there for me no matter what. The looser my grip became the tighter theirs got. Never once did they waver professionally or personally. Now that everything is done and the dust has begun to settle. For me it is bitter sweet knowing that everything is done, but again everything is done if you know what I mean. I know that I will forever hold a special place in my heart for Jacquelynn and her team because they where my hope through the hardest part of my life. Their professionalism and attention to detail is unmatched. I truly can not say enough about Jacquelynn and her team! They demand, expect and reflect only the highest standards upon Eisenberg Gilchrist and Cutts along with being the industry leaders in their profession! If I had to do it all over again I would stand bye for years if that is what it took to be represented by this firm! I had a team that walked me through every step of the way and ultimately finished with a chance to restart my life for me and my children. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! If you are considering which firm to help you and represent you expecially during a hard time like I have been through. Don't hesitate! Call Eisenberg Gilchrist and Cutt right away! Sincerely, Dave

Jacquelynn has an amazing ability to fight ferociously with grace and persuasively with poise.
Jacquelynn Carmichael is one of the most amazing attorneys I have ever seen - and I have been attorney for 25 years. My daughter suffered diffuse brain damage due to medical malpractice. We lived in a state where the plaintiff rarely wins at trial. Jacquelynn was relentless in her pursuit of justice for my daughter. Jacquelynn made it so that our wheelchair bound daughter will always be able to live with us at home while also receiving the extensive medical care she needs as a result of the malpractice. Jacquelynn was always prepared, kept us informed, and fully prepared me and our experts for depositions and testimony. Jacquelynn spent 8 years with us and she became not only our advocate, but also a part of our family. You simply could not find better a better attorney to represent you in these very difficult and tragic cases.

Review
Jackie was a great lawyer. She made me feel comfortable during my deposition and had my back. We also worked with her paralegal Candace Gleed who did an amazing job as well. It was a very emotional case and I felt that they cared about me personally.

Wonderful experience with Jacquelynn Carmichael- so happy that she was the lawyer on my case
Living in another state, I had no idea who to turn to in order to handle a medical malpractice lawsuit against a medical practitioner that had cared for me after a traumatic injury during my vacation in Utah. My case ended up in Jacquelynn's hands, and I am so glad that it did. Never being in this situation before, I had no idea what to do, but Jacquelynn and her team made sure that I was kept fully informed during the entire legal process. This made me feel at ease, because I knew what I needed to have handled was being taken care of. I was present at both the depositions for my case as well as the mediation, and Jacquelynn made sure that I was prepared to handle all situations, was completely honest with me about both the positives and issues of my case, and never pressured me to make any decisions. When I made the choice to settle my case during the mediation stages, I felt like I made the best choice for me, due to her guidance. Although my medical malpractice case is something that I wish I never had to experience, I am really glad that I was able to hire a lawyer who really took care of me and supported me. I would recommend her to anyone.

Excellent
Jackie helped me dealing with a law suit. She was very professional and kept me in on the progress. I was nervous and didn't know what to do. Jackie made me feel comfortable. I trusted her from the start and she was knowledgeable and represented me in an excellent manner. She became my friend and I would consider her for any legal help in the future. Her associates that helped were also amazing. I would highly recommend them.

She's not good, she's FANTASTIC!!!
I went to at least 5 other lawyers who wouldn't take my case because they didn't think it was cut and dry. I had all but given up. I got lucky when I happened to talk with another lawyer, in an unrelated matter, who recommended Jackie. I didn't know how lucky I was at that time. It really takes a lot to impress me. Just doing your job doesn't impress me. Here's why I'm so impressed. First off, she didn't try and sell herself, she didn't need to. When you talk with her you'll know why other lawyers recommend her. 1. Jackie does her homework. On my second visit, I realized how much time she had spent learning the medical side of my case. I swear she knew more than my doctor's knew. 2. The team that she has assembled to help her are second to none. She has a team of lawyers that help her. Candace, her main assistant, was awesome. Candace was always prompt about returning calls and answering questions. 3. The consultants that were hired, were highly regarded in their field. They were individuals that had excelled in their respective fields. 4. Jackie set realistic expectations. She worked hard. My case was, not by any means, an easy case. 5. Jackie really does care. She's tough and caring rolled into one package. I'm glad she wasn't on the other side! 6. The lawyers for the other side were unrealistic at times and she she wouldn't hesitate to let them know. 7. Jackie helped prepare me for my role in this case. I, like most people, had never been through this before. 8. I could go on an on, but I'm telling you, you'll be happy that you read this review and you chose to hire Jacquelynn Carmicheal.

Caring and capable attorney
Jackie was a lifesaver for me and my daughters after our car accident. As soon as we contacted her, she took right over and had us route all calls to her. She communicated with the other insurance companies, and she took care of getting our wrecked car into a storage unit. She was non-intimidating, explained all of the legal information well and answered all of our questions. She was professional, knowledgeable, patient and pleasant to work with. Candace and the rest of her staff were also very helpful and pleasant to work with. Jackie explained the different ways the settlement could be handled, and worked hard to get it taken care of out of court. We appreciate Jackie very much and highly recommend her as a very caring and capable attorney.

Amazing attorney!
Jacquelynn Carmichael took on our Malpractice case, when other attorney's wouldn't. She really fought hard for us and helped us get the best outcome out of bad situation.

Compassionate and caring attorney
My wife had a suit against a doctor. It went fairly smooth and we were nearing a settlement when she passed. On behalf of my wife and I, we'd like to thank Jackie for her outstanding effort on behalf of my wife. Following her death Jackie helped me with additional issues. I'd also like to thank Candace for her help and service. Thank you!
