About Austin

Learn Austin’s areas of practice.

Austin is married and is the proud father of seven children. Austin was born and raised in Magna, Utah where he graduated as the co-Valedictorian of Cyprus High School in 2001. After graduating high school, Austin attended the University of Utah, where he graduated summa cum laude as the Outstanding Scholar in Business Administration with a minor in Mandarin Chinese. From there, Austin attended Ave Maria School of Law, again graduating summa cum laude and first in his class. Austin was chosen by his classmates to speak at graduation, and was awarded the St. Thomas More award for excellence in character and academics.

Austin began working at the age of 12 at a local greenhouse, as well as mowing lawns and other odd jobs for neighbors. At 18, he started working for a framing crew, and later left that job to serve as a missionary for the LDS Church in Taiwan, where he learned Mandarin Chinese. After returning from Taiwan and some more time framing, Austin began working at a silver refinery where he worked full-time while attending the University of Utah full-time.

During law school, Austin clerked for a judge in Michigan, worked in a city attorney's office, was the research assistant to the Dean, and worked for a small firm in Florida. Since attending law school, Austin has worked in a variety of areas of law, including constitutional, business, real estate, finance, estate planning, adoption, international tax, prenuptials, creditor/debtor, corporate governance, contracts, and appeals. Austin has been involved in cases across the country ranging from Rhode Island to Hawaii, and is admitted to four Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal.

Austin is a Believer who feels strongly that the world's best days are still ahead. He values connecting and working with others who also believe and are willing to work to build good.

Most Favorable Experience with Estate Planning
We hired Austin Hepworth to prepare our family estate. He walked us through the process and was incredibly knowledgeable and patient with every question we had. He also had advice that helped us make decisions we weren't quite sure about. We were very impressed with his attention to every detail and making sure every possible situation was discussed and covered to assure our estate would move forward smoothly and without possibility of being contested. We highly recommend Austin Hepworth and will be requesting his services again when the need arises!

Great Experience
We really enjoyed working with Austin. We worked with him when we needed help to protect ourselves against the damage caused to our property when the house next to us was being constructed. He was excellent at communicating each aspect and process so that we could understand exactly what our rights were and what options were available to us. He always kept us updated with how things were going and was available for our questions. We were grateful for his knowledge and expertise in dealing with this kind of problem and it was a relief to be in such good hands. I would recommend him to anyone.

Hiring a lawyer
Austin Hepworth was hired by us to prepare a family trust. He spent adequate time with us explaining every detail of the trust in language we could understand. When we received our trust he had marked every page that needed signatures which made that process so easy. He put our minds at ease with drawing up this trust and covered every aspects that we needed. We know Austin to be a very honest, sincere, and thorough person who listens to your wants and provides those needs. We would and have recommended Austin to family and friends

Knowledgeable and very helpful
I hired Mr. Hepworth to help me with my parent's trust that was prepared by another attorney. The trust was so poorly written by the other attorney that it was not worth the paper it was written on. My parent's thought that they had everything in order with their trust and would be appalled if they would have known all of the problems that I have encountered. Mr. Hepworth is very knowledgeable about trusts and has been a huge help to me as the trustee of the trust. When all is finally finished with my parent's trust, I am hiring Mr. Hepworth to prepare my own trust, so that it is done correctly. I feel very confident that Austin knows what he is doing. His prices are reasonable and well worth the price. I would highly recommend Mr. Hepworth.

Great Attorney
Austin has been great to work with. He promptly returns calls and thoroughly explains options/concerns. I am a contractor in the Construction industry and he helps thoroughly review all contracts. He has helped me negotiate and acquire shares in another business. He is in the process of putting a trust together for my business and family. I would highly recommend Austin.
