A true no nonsense professional, who knows his craft. Outstanding experience and dedication to your case. He is very responsive through email and phone calls.
I am an active duty military officer and had a complicated child support case that covered three different States. Other lawyers’ advise me not to push the case forward. However, after turning over all my legal documents to David (10 years’ worth, multiple court rulings, in three States), David reviewed all the paperwork, did a thorough assessment in which we prevailed.
David conducted his research on my case, investigated our options, and came up with a strategic plan to execute. Through his intense research, he discovered a valuable piece of information that other lawyers missed, and used it in the execution of our plan. David was spot on with the decisions he expected we would get from the judge. He highlight areas to me where there may be risk or challenges, and came up with strong counterarguments that ultimately won our case. In the end, David’s expertise and his execution in front of the Judge saved me over 50K in child support. He had to present arguments to the Court three different times, on different aspects of the case, and David achieved victories all three times. In Court; His presence, arguments and counterarguments, were unmatched. He thoroughly anticipated and answer the Judges questions, he came to court each and every time extremely well prepared.
His Court room demeanor commands the respect of the Court and that of his peers. David is extremely well respected throughout the Salt Lake legal community, his positive reputation is an asset to you and your case.
If you are first starting out with a case, or if you have had difficulty with other lawyers in the past, and want a clean start and a full review of your options, You cannot find a more detailed, professional, and straight forward lawyer than David Pedrazas.

I worked for David as a legal assistant for about a year and a half. I did not know David beforehand. My friend had hired him for her divorce and she was impressed by his character. When I interviewed with David, I was immediately impressed by him and his upfront and honest attitude. He will not tell you what you want to hear just to blow smoke up your skirt; he will tell you what needs to be said, whether you like it or not. Having gone through four different attorneys during my husband’s custody case with his ex-wife, I came to realize how important that is and how rare that trait is to find in attorneys.
David is never out to make a “quick buck” and screw you over on billing, as I have seen other attorneys do. He is extremely knowledgeable and will defend his clients with the upmost integrity. My husband hired David to complete his custody case after seeing how impressed with him I was. Sadly enough, my husband and I are now going through a divorce and I cannot hire David, as that would create a conflict since he previously represented my husband. I have hired another attorney for my divorce and although he is good, he does not represent me as well as I know David would. I would recommend David to anyone going through a divorce or custody case- especially if there is high conflict. His knowledge, persistence, and punctuality cannot be beaten.

I highly recommend David. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and thorough.

I have worked with David on several cases. He is well educated and represents his clients vigorously. I have found that he is aggressive when he needs to be; however, also understands the benefit of reaching a positive settlement for all involved.
