Utah Bankruptcy Attorney – Specialty Areas

Bankruptcy Lawyers in Utah can choose to specialize in Bankruptcy. However, unlike doctors, Utah bankruptcy lawyers do not receive any board certifications for specializing. Lawyers specialize by focusing their experience, education, and training on certain types of cases. Most of our competitor attorneys in Utah “specialize” in everything because they work alone, or in very small groups and take whatever cases they can get. We think of our law firm as the perfect size because we are large enough to specialize in different areas of the law, but still small enough to care about you.

What do our bankruptcy clients say about us?

AnonymousVery responsive to my "trivial" questions!

Craig and his staff were very responsive to my "trivial" questions on bankruptcy and gave me good on advice on what I needed to do to complete the process. He does things to represent me in a very timely and professional matter with the court and always provides documents for me to fill it out ahead of time. I'm very satisfied with his work.

ChrisTreated us like we were their most important client!

My wife and I worked with Craig, and Angie. They took such great care of us. My wife and I kept forgetting important things and kept neglecting bits of information throughout the process and Craig's team was there every step of the way to make sure this was done right. They were detail-oriented, extremely helpful, and treated us like we were their most important client.

Alisha A.Made us feel like their number 1 priority!

We found their office after a very horrible experience with another lawyer when we filed bankruptcy. Three year long horrible story short with the other attorney, Helgesen, Houtz & Jones was amazing, understanding, and helpful. They were and always there when we have a question or concern. They made us feel we were their number 1 priority. Highly recommended
