Practice areas

I have practiced law in Utah since 1998, licensed as both an attorney and Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I have a Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Accounting from Brigham Young University, and graduated magna cum laude from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU.

 

Our firm specializes in probate, estate & trust settlement, estate planning, tax planning, and business & corporate law. I worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP (PWC), a Big Four accounting firm, in Salt Lake City prior to beginning my law practice. I was named by Utah Business Magazine as one of Utah’s Legal Elite Lawyers in the area of Wills, Trusts & Estates. I currently serve as the chairman of the Utah County Estate Planners Roundtable.

Help With Will and Trust Documents
Marc was wonderful! He provided excellent guidance and advice on the language of a confusing trust document to help me navigate the legal issues. Marc is obviously very knowledgable and is an excellent communicator. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help with a will or a trust.

Estate Planning
We started our estate planning with Marc in 1996. My father passed away in 2015 and everything went exactly as planned. Marc and his staff provide excellent service, it is professionally handled and they are a pleasure to work with. They helped us work through a delicate situation among siblings with understanding and patience. Our estate could not have been handled any better.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Marc Austin was kind enough to help me on a very contentious estate dispute. I don't know much about trusts and estates because my area of practice is intellectual property. However, Marc met with me and reviewed the various documents that I had provided. He was professional, courteous, and very engaged. He clearly knew the law, provided some great analysis, and gave me some very solid advice on how to proceed. If you have a question about wills, trusts, and estates, do not hesitate to call Marc for some seriously good advice. Highly recommend."
Estate planning Attorney | Sep 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have worked with Marc in a variety of situations, and he is always pleasant and professional. In the times I've interacted with Marc, he has volunteered his time mentoring a new lawyer, explained complex estate issues, and advised on a full range of trust issues. I think Marc is uniquely qualified for his trusts and estates practice because of his accounting background and his CPA license. But the reason I always choose to work with Marc, rather than with other lawyers who practice in the same legal areas, is that he is so pleasant to work with. Marc is the consummate professional. I refer everyone who asks me for the best trusts and estates lawyer to Marc Austin."
