Why Do I Practice Business Law?

I have practiced in Utah County since 1986. From my business and law backgrounds, I entered a county that was in a deep recession. The building market had collapsed and small businesses were fighting to stay alive by collecting debts owed to them or trying to work out payments to those vendors they owed money to. There was fraud in the housing market and much litigation surrounding fake people buying expensive houses. For many, bankruptcy was the only answer. I developed my business and estate planning practice around these problems and was soon doing everything from collecting debts to drafting business plans, organizing and dissolving corporations, and representing businesses both as debtors and creditors in bankruptcy proceedings.

For the record, LLC’s had not even been invented yet. About 1991, Utah County started pulling out of its recession and slowly the economy improved, opening up new building and new business in the area. By 1995 the economy was strong and would remain so until 2005 when the economy overheated and then burst in 2008. Through it all I have been there working with many small businesses in the issues including financing options, public vs. private lenders, growth issues, and working with developers to obtain approvals for large developments. The economy in Utah County is back like it was in the late 1980’s. I see the same issues that I went through twenty years ago. I get it. I’ve been there. When the recession is over and the economy takes off again, I will be around for that too.

I’ve set up many corporations and limited liability companies, wills and trusts. I’ve also litigated many cases and I know the local court system well.
