They know he is a fierce advocate for his clients, with a reputation for going to trial when necessary. In that regard, Terry has tried numerous cases throughout Utah.

Resourceful Preparation:
Our meticulous trial preparation sets us apart

We delve deep into case details, leaving no stone unturned, and develop a story, tone, and approach that will resonate with the jury. We know how to prepare thoroughly and efficiently for trial, and we take the time necessary to personally prep every witness, research and practice every examination, and to come into trial knowing every document and fact in the case.

Reputation in the Community

Many in the Utah community know our firm and our attorneys for our willingness to take a case to trial, and when we make an appearance, they know they are facing an uphill battle. While we come into every case planning to take it to trial, we have seen that once we make an appearance, stalled settlement discussions immediately begin moving again in favor of the firm we partner with. This is especially true in policy limits cases where insurance companies know we have a proven track record of securing excess jury verdicts against their insureds.
