Firm Overview:

We are a team of experienced injury attorneys, working for the people throughout the state of Utah to give victims of personal injury accidents a voice. After you have been injured in an accident that was caused by the dangerous or negligent behaviour of another individual, you need help getting what is fair from the insurance company.

When you are the victim of a personal injury, it is often easy to feel lost, alone, and unheard. The insurance companies will try to take advantage of that, but don’t let them; The Advocates are here for you.

We will listen to your story, help you get the medical treatment you need, and fight for your right to a fair settlement. As your personal lawyers, we will represent your case to the insurance company and make sure that they fulfil their responsibility of respecting your rights and compensating you for your injury. The Advocates is a law firm that is dedicated to helping you get the settlement you deserve.

The insurance companies do not want to give you what is fair, and will resist your efforts to recover fair compensation. Here at The Advocates, we will not let them get away with mistreating you and giving you less than you deserve. With The Advocates on your side, you can be assured that you are in the most capable hands.

Know that you can get the medical treatment you need without having to worry about costly medical bills or time away from work. We can help with all of that.
