Andrew Rawlings
Andrew is an amazing lawyer. He brought light to very sensitive subjects and showed kindness when most lawyer's wouldn't give second thought. He went up and beyond the bench mark of professionalism. Highly recommend this firm.

Top Attorney in Ogden Utah
Thank you Kristopher Greenwood .and Associates in Ogden Ut. Kristopher Greenwood and his professional team took excellent care of me during the process of my divorce. Kris is very professional and well versed in Divorce law. He is the man with a plan and took care of me very well. Kris would call to explain the process and let me know he would take care of me. His articulation was on point with conversations, he explained all of the necessary documents and my options. His team was so very helpful getting me on track and helping me gather my documents. I was always updated and could call anytime with a response back from Kristipher or team if I needed to ask questions. I always felt like a priority and supported. Thank you Kristopher Greenwood and Team! I would highly recommended this awesome Attorney. Thank you.

Highly Recommend
It's been said that divorce is one of the hardest things a person will go through in their lifetime. Unfortunately, I would agree with that assessment. The amount of stress and emotion can be overwhelming at times. It's during these times when you need someone smart and capable and also willing to help you navigate through the rough waters of divorce. I am appreciative of Kris and the work he and his staff did for me. I'm not sure there is a better divorce attorney in the state.

Excellent attorney which is hard to find
Kris did a fantastic job representing me in probably the most unique and challenging cohabitation case he and my private Investigator had even seen. He was always available when I needed him. He’s very sharp and 3-steps ahead of the opposition. My word to the wise is, hire Kris Greenwood. You don’t want to go up against him in court.

Exact, responsive, and knowledgable
With all the outstanding support, advice and actions, I wanted to thank Kris Greenwood for always going above and beyond in communicating with me, and securing my best interests. Kris accepted my gratitude, but refused any reward above kind words, because as he told me, it is the staff behind him who make the firm and him look good and allow him to put his attention on serving clients. Thank you. I look forward to working with you in the future, and appreciate the attention, respect, and humor you’ve shared with me.

Amazing Attorney and Incredible Staff
I had a real need for a good divorce attorney in what was clearly shaping up to be an ugly divorce. Kris fit the bill perfectly and was kind enough to take a case that would prove as ugly as anticipated. First, he took the time to educate me on how the divorce would proceed. Next he gave me clear instructions, do’s and don’ts. He was very confident, which gave me some peace at a time of great turmoil. Through the process he was very realistic and kept a cool head when I was very emotional. In the end he delivered on what he said he would do. He listened to my desires and always looked out for my greatest interest. He may not be the cheapest divorce attorney, but, in my opinion, he is the best.

Life often presents us with unplanned twists, turns and ill-fated consequence.
Unfortunately, some time ago, I found myself in a legal predicament that I had no idea whatsoever on how to proceed – FORTUNATELY, I was apparently guided by some power stronger than myself to Kristopher K. Greenwood – practicing Attorney of Utah State Law whose knowledge, skill and abilities greatly helped me navigate the tortuous paths of both Civil and Criminal Law. No one openly welcomes being served with unanticipated legal documents demanding an often short-time legally obligated response – A not usual first response of a recipient from a demand for legal action is uncontrolled emotional outrage – When represented by Attorney Greenwood, you as his client can be confident he will actively pursue the most appropriate logical legal strategic response to assure that your legal rights are preserved during the course of his representation. If you are fortunate enough to have the representation of Attorney Kristopher K. Greenwood, you can be confident that you are being represented by a highly skilled legal practitioner who will utilize his broad, diverse and insightful knowledge to educate, represent and advocate for you his client. Attorney Kristopher K. Greenwood greatly assisted me with multiple legal actions by helping me better understand the various legal cases, my legal rights and obligations under Utah State Law, and the consequences of our collective legal action decisions for the various matters under consideration. In the past, I never thought I would need the assistance of an attorney to help me with legal matters – However, as many of us know, and I certainly discovered – Life often presents us with unplanned twists, turns and ill-fated consequence. If you too find yourself in need of legal representation during an unfortunate turn of circumstance, it may bring you peace-of-mind to know that if you are represented by Attorney Kristopher K. Greenwood, you will have a strong legal counselor who will act on your behalf to the best of his abilities to assure the most favorable legal practical outcome possible – He certainly did for me.

I have known Kris Greenwood for over 10 years; he’s an excellent attorney and owns/manages an excellent firm. He’s been a trusted advisor for the past several years to me and my family and I would highly recommend him and his Firm.

Kris is masterful with people, not just the law...
I am supremely impressed with Kris Greenwood. Kris understands the law and is very thorough and professional in his practice, with a staff to match, as one would expect. But his real magic is on the “human side”. Kris totally understood where I was coming from and what I was trying to accomplish in my divorce, and worked expertly and efficiently to get me there. He educated me in each area as it came up, in a succinct and efficient manner. We did a lot of “finessing” in my divorce case… I wanted to be sure I understood what the law would allow while at the same time trying to get there through persuasion rather than legal force. I wanted to optimize between legal results and preserving as much good will as possible with my spouse, and sanity for our kids. Kris was totally on board with this; he understood that he was helping me reengineer my family and that the stakes were huge with kids involved. Kris was certainly able and willing to be aggressive, but backed off when I asked him to after he made sure I understood all implications of my proposed decision. Kris had me negotiating from a position of competence and strength. I felt like I knew what I was doing and in control. We ended up crafting a great agreement without going to court… but If our negotiations didn’t go so well and I needed to go to court, Kris would definitely be the guy I would want to handle that too. I could not be happier with this result! I am especially grateful to be through this trying time with little to no negative impact on our children. I cannot imagine that many lawyers could have made this happen for me in the same way. Thank you Kris and staff, you guys did a great thing!

Choose Kris Greenwood as your first attorney!
My divorce has been very difficult! I was very worried about my daughter and the negative impact the situation was having on her life. My previous attorney was nice but just wanted to do paperwork. Kris combines knowledge, hard work, integrity, over 20 experience and wisdom into absolute brilliance to fight for me and my daughter! He thoroughly explained how things work in divorce and custody cases and answered all my questions. Kris took the time to ask questions to understand the uniqueness of my situation. I felt heard. He was prepared and positive for all the meetings which included several court appearances and mediation. Kris is amazing, humble and absolutely nothing seems to surprise him. He focuses on the big picture while taking care of all the details. It is now possible to move forward with my life! I have sole legal and sole physical custody of my daughter and thank God she is getting her life back! Sherry

Absolutely the best man you can hire!
Kris Greenwood has been my only positive experience in dealing with many attorneys in the last 10 years of my life. He is very genuine and truly cares about his clients rights and needs. He is always there to help clarify the road ahead and all possible outcomes. He is very descriptive and helps his clients feel at ease, which helps a great deal in trusting his work. Kris works very hard behind the scenes to not burden the client with overwhelming documentation. My life was overran with stress and despair before switching over to Kris. My first meeting with him I knew he wasn’t just blowing smoke, this guy is the real deal and has a ton of experience that I needed. I have spent many thousands of dollars defending myself against attorneys that are willing to bring frivolous lawsuits before the court. Kris is one of the very few ethical and moral attorneys left in this practice. I am grateful he took my case and appreciate his efforts defending my family.

Best of the best
Kris Greenwood took the time to help me in reviewing documents for a business matter for my company. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and extensive legal knowledge. The paralegals at the firm are also wonderful and were great to work with. I will definitely be reaching out to their office for any future legal issues.

The perfect attorney alchemist -thank you!!
I can’t tell you how appreciative I am. And I don’t know what I would’ve done without Kris Greenwood in my corner. Kris is a calm, insightful and brilliant advocate for his clients — literally creating miracles others didn’t think possible. When others failed, my family even advised me to stop because of safety issues, and no one else believed —yet, Kris did an amazing job. Such brilliance and professional humanity combined Is a rarity. I’m absolutely grateful to have been referred to him by a past client. (His Team is amazing as well -thank you paralegals and admins!)
