About Ronald

Learn Ronald’s areas of practice.

As a service to our community, I served for nearly 10 years as one of the Small Claims Judge Pro-Tempore for the Washington County Justice Court. I have more than 26 years’ experience as an attorney. I graduated in the top 10% of my class from the J. Rueben Clark Law School, Brigham Young University, in 1988. I was lead articles editor for the Brigham Young University Law Review and upon graduation became a member of The Order of the Coif. After graduating from law school in 1988, I joined the national law firm of Kirkland & Ellis (“K&E”), in Chicago, Illinois. When K&E opened an office in Los Angeles, California, I moved to Los Angeles to help open the Los Angeles office of K&E. While at K&E, I represented such clients as Hughes Aircraft, Dunn & Bradstreet and Motorola. In 1992, I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada and in 1993 started my own law firm.

Great Lawyer
Ron was able to review a contract for a business transaction I was entering and made some strategic changes that I hadn't thought about. His knowledge and expertise will save me a lot of money in the future.

A Lucky Find!
After a dog attack that left me with a facial scar and some upsetting memories, my husband suggested we see a lawyer. He looked through the St. George Yellow Pages and out of all the attorneys listed, he settled on Ron, which turned out to be a very good thing for us. At our first meeting, Ron put us at ease with his easygoing demeanor, and he listened patiently to our description of the event, asking for clarifications now and then. He explained how he would proceed and answered all our questions -- no pressure, no salesmanship, just forthrightness. Since we don't live in St. George, we accomplished most of what needed to be done by telephone, e-mails, and faxes, which made it easy on us. Ron and his assistant, Danielle, kept us apprised of every step being taken on our case. Their response times to our phone calls and e-mails were great. The settlement Ron achieved for us exceeded any expectations we had at the beginning of this journey, and we felt it was fair for all involved. If you are looking for an experienced, competent attorney who also is a genuinely good man, call Ron. You will be in good hands.

Legal services, personal injury claim
Mr. Truman was extremely professional, and responsive. I felt he obtained the maximum settlement for my claim in a very reasonable time and with a minimum of aggravation to me. I would reccomend his services to any and all in the very highest terms.

Experience with Ron Truman
Mr. Truman has recently assisted us in an eviction of a tenant who had filed an illegal "Notice of Interest" against our property. It was a complicated case because at one time she owned the property. She entered into a Rental Agreement with our company but then failed to return the signed copy of the Rental agreement. After consulting with her attorney, Ron was able to negotiate an acceptable settlement between the parties and the tenant will remove her mobile home and be off the property by January 31, 2015. Additionally, Mr. Truman has assisted me over the years with multiple difficult and complicated issues that our corporation has had to deal with regarding construction law, construction defects, etc. He is very knowledgeable regarding civil matters, personal injury, real estate, and general litigation (such as the collection of accounts receivables etc. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance.

Robert McDonald's attorney review for Ronald Truman
Mr. Ronald Truman is an excellent attorney. My experience working with him, as he represented me, was very pleasant, reassuring, and rewarding. My case was specific to an injury that I sustained in an auto accident that was not my fault. Mr. Truman was very knowledgeable about this situation. He knew exactly what information and reports I needed to obtain from the police, hospital, and doctors in order to prove my case. He went out of his way to make sure I was informed with every process of the case. He returned my calls and answered my questions in a timely matter. He is very friendly, and professional. He sincerely cared about my injuries and my case. I was extremely happy and satisfied with the outcome of my case. I would definitely return to Mr. Truman for any legal matter and would also recommend him to everyone.

Helping Hand
My boyfriend was ran over by semi in Utah. We are from Iowa. I was was lost in another state. I was given Rons number frim our local attorney. I was so impressed with his first visit. Ron was their for us day and night. He had some other obstacles like our family issues to deal with. He was our eyes and ears for all the hospital issues, court room issues, and family issues. We wouldn't be where we are now if Ron wasn't in our life.

One of the best
Ron is one of the best, well prepared attorneys that we have ever used. He's honest and his knowledge of the law is not to be discounted. We have used him for years and we have found none better. His skills as a trial attorney, and a negotiator are second to none. We highly recommend him and his skills.

Good honest lawyer
I was impressed by Ron in my personal injury case. He is knowledgeable and honest. He was great in getting my injury diagnosed, since the first doctors were telling me nothing was wrong. After having Workers Comp. close my case at one point, I finally went to the Specialist that I needed. Definitely the guy to have in your corner.

Amazing Service
Ron did an amazing job dealing with very unreasonable and clueless people. I feel he provide us with everything we needed to get an almost impossible task done. We could not have asked for a better attorney for this case.

Personal injury Attorney | Jun 01
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Ron Truman is the kind of person that others want to be, and the kind of lawyer other lawyers want to emulate. I have had the opportunity to work closely with Ron for almost 2 years and feel comfortable stating that there is not a more ethical and outstanding attorney in Southern Utah. He is intelligent as well as competent, while still being personable and understanding. He actually cares about the people that he is helping and genuinely feels badly for their situation. He works hard and puts in the time required and then goes out of his way to make his clients happy. I would recommend Ron Truman for your injury claim."
