He was very persuasive convincing me that he was the best man for the job. After I hired him, he never talked to me again. I spoke to all his paralegals who never knew anything and my case went no where. And I'm not the only one. He did the same thing to a friend.
Google this guy, type Abe Bates Utah Lawyer. You'll see what I am talking about. Also Google his former practice that shut down, Wasatch Advocates.
Save your money. Stay away.

Abe worked with me tirelessly for over a year and allowed me to stay in my home despite the legal games that were being played by large national lenders and their scum counsel. Abe and his staff are first rate and if you're fighting to keep your home, I believe that in the State of Utah, there's no one better to be in your corner.

Dealing with Abe was a pleasure from the very beginning. I called him after being arrested for a DUI in which I had a blood test result of 0.19%. It was Sunday and he waited outside his office for me to show up. During our meeting, his intelligence, professionalism and general personality was very impressive so I decided to retain him.
Abe did not disappoint.
He managed to get my blood evidence thrown out in court and subsequently have all charges against me dropped in during my trial. This not only saved my career, but my future plans which would have been significantly and adversely affected with a DUI on my record. The fact that his services were quite inexpensive in relation to the talent displayed in his law firm was also very impressive. There is no doubt in my mind about whose number any of my friends or I will call in the future if something unfortunate happens.
