Solving the important problems of my clients requires all 28 years of my experience, careful research and creative analysis. Understanding a client's goals helps me prioritize my work. Then I give clients an accurate assessment of their case. Third, I want to get all of the information I need to help them achieve their goals. To help me accomplish these three goals, I need clients to keep good records and to bring the records they have for my review. I enjoy meeting with clients to discuss potential solutions to their problems. I want clients to feel welcome and well served at our firm's office. I take time to give them a list of options to solve their problems and to help them understand what a court will do in a case like theirs. When clients cannot solve their problems without court intervention, I want to find the most effective way to get the relief the client needs. I strive to have a close working relationship with the client not only to make my representation more efficient and effective, but also to help me understand how the client wants to handle the important situations and decisions in the litigation process. Litigation needs to be focused on the specific relief the client wants.
Outside of the office I have had a long tenure working on a local and district level with the Boy Scouts of America and three of our sons and I have our Woodbadge beads. I have also volunteered in the Salt Lake public schools on various committees. I enjoy playing tennis with my wife and practicing musical instruments with my children. Going to and from the office I often listen to recorded literary works or college lectures.
