Cynthia M.Skilled attorneys with years of experience!

I recommend Jack and Erik Helgesen to any person looking for Attorneys who have a strong understanding of Utah Law. The Helgesen's are skilled Attorneys who have years of experience dealing with the touchy issues of court. I live in Washington State, working with an Attorney from another State who I could trust was very difficult, until I met and hired the Helgesen's. I appreciate their honesty, trust their judgment and their ability to get the job done. Where other Attorney's failed, they succeeded!
