I spent my formative years in hard-working farming communities in Northern Utah and Southeast Idaho. After high school, I moved to Provo, went on an LDS mission to Spain for two years, and eventually received a Bachelor’s degree in political science from BYU in 2007. After a couple years of traveling and working, I moved to East Lansing and received a J.D. from Michigan State University College of Law in 2012. I spent my summers during law school assisting migrant workers get legal assistance for various non-immigration injustices such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, inappropriate living conditions, unsafe work environments, and more.
My super awesome wife and I moved back to Utah after law school to be closer to family. After passing the bar exam, I started my own practice where I worked both on my own and under the tutelage of some of Utah’s best and most seasoned attorneys. I eventually found my way into the personal injury field. I spent more than five years doing litigation for insurance companies and defense firms. I gained valuable experience about how insurance companies evaluate cases and work behind the scenes. This experience also helped me to establish many valuable relationships with major players on all sides of the Utah legal community.
I love to work hard and get fair results that can put my clients on the path to be “whole” again. Which is why I enjoy what I get to do at Siegfried & Jensen.
Outside of legal work, I enjoy watching sports, eating awesome food, traveling, gardening, watching movies, being a snob about music, and playing games with friends. I love my Utah Jazz and rarely miss an opportunity to watch them play. I also love being a father to four awesome kids who all seemingly hate watching sports and eating awesome food. Luckily, I married a fantastic woman who helps them to develop their other, less interesting interests.
