Good Guys Legal
Ken and Russ met in San Diego on the first day of law school. They were both from Utah and formed an immediate friendship. As they helped each other excel in law school, they began talking about starting a law firm together one day. They saw in one another traits that are a rare combination in the law — intelligence, determination and compassion. These traits were developed from unique backgrounds that ultimately helped differentiate them from all other personal injury attorneys out there.
At just 21 years of age, Russ’s brother-in-law (John) was paralyzed in an accident and lost use of both his arms and legs. Over the years, Russ and his wife have helped care for John and provided assistance with his daily needs. Russ has seen what happens when an accident turns your life upside down and the ripple effects that impact you and your loved ones like they have for his brother-in-law. This is why Russ chose to specialize in accident and injury law. Russ has said, “When I meet with clients, I see John. I know they need help and I want every one of them to have the best chance at a positive outcome. I want to help them put their life back together.”
It was on this foundation that Good Guys Legal was built. Aside from Ken and Russ’s own experiences, each of our attorneys and paralegals have either had traumatic experiences of their own, or watched family members suffer accidents or injuries with life-altering consequences. These unique life experiences have shaped and molded our office culture and made us the law firm we are today. It is why clients, attorneys, and even insurance adjusters have referred their friends and families to the “Good Guys” after an accident.
