Claimed Lawyer Profile

I've been fighting for Utah's injured workers and their families to obtain worker's compensation and Social Security disability benefits for over 30 years. I've handled many hundreds of cases and have gotten millions of dollars of benefits for my clients through the Utah Labor Commission.

I know the judges. I know the opposing attorneys. And I know the system. I can usually tell you up-front whether or not you have a good case and what you can hope to recover. Very competitive contingent fees. No money up-front and no fee until we get you money.

Some cases can be settled, some must be fought in court, but I'll do what it takes to get the best recovery possible.
