“Everyone was great! They answered phone calls and messages fast. Everyone was friendly and wanted everything in our best interest.”

Angela | Salt Lake City, Utah

“We had given up hope after dealing with another law firm. At first, they told us we’d get some ridiculous amount of money, and then they ignored us for months. From the beginning, The Advocates were friendly, forthright and genuinely interested in our case. The difference was night and day. They really cared about us and we were very happy with the settlement we got.”

Chris & Stacey | Spanish Fork, Utah

“I had a great experience with The Advocates. John and Hannah were responsive, kind, helpful and willing to answer any questions I had. I felt like they were happy to have me as a client.”
