It is in the best interest of our clients for us to approach every case like we will have to try it. In order to bring cases to a close as quickly as possible, we follow this important principle. Our attorneys have worked more cases in the courtroom than most other law firms in Utah but litigation is only one path to resolution.

Our attorneys present the options and prepare clients for possible outcomes at each phase of the resolution process. At any point throughout the process, you and your attorney may want to consider mediation or arbitration. Meet our Mediators.


Our law firm’s strength lies primarily in the depth of experience of our trial lawyers. Few law firms in Utah have the courtroom experience that we have accumulated here at Richards Brandt.

Trial lawyers represent clients involved in both civil and criminal litigation. The trial lawyer’s job requires excellent analytic skills and an in-depth understanding of the law. Persuading a judge or jury requires each piece of evidence be presented and disputed according to a complex set of rules. In addition, trial lawyers review files, contact witnesses, take depositions, try cases, prepare orders, and talk to clients outside of court throughout the case. The preparation for a trial can take months and sometimes years.


Our attorneys work with individuals, small local business and large international companies. Passion for the law is important, however a commitment to the client is what we have built our reputation on over the last 40 years.

Businesses as well as individuals face challenges in each stage of their lives. We have worked with clients over decades protecting their family and livelihood from claims and possible litigation. Earning the trust of our clients over time has been our greatest success. Our clients can count on us to evaluate risk, prepare important legal documents and protect their assets long term.
