The knowledge and experience to handle family law issues

As skilled family law attorneys, we understand the real-world issues and challenges people face when going through a divorce, custody battle or other family law dispute. We devote a substantial portion of our practice to this sensitive area of law because we know how important a role an attorney can play for you when going through a difficult divorce or family dispute.

Whether inside or outside the context of a Utah divorce resolving family law issues requires a temperament and judgment that only experience can give. Some Utah family law disputes require a light touch — pushing too hard can make matters worse. That is why we employ negotiation and mediation where appropriate to resolve these disputes quickly and privately. But we also understand the hardship that can befall one party when the other is dishonest, uncooperative, or obstructive. Such cases require decisive and aggressive action.

Experience with crucial natural resource issues

Here in Utah, we recognize the value of natural resources. Access to water can have a huge impact on the value and usability of land — and can be fertile ground for legal disputes. At Hanks & Peterson, P.C., we recognize that the laws governing land use and environmental protection can be as complex and interdependent as the ecosystems they protect. We appreciate the need many of our clients have for this service and devote a substantial portion of our practice to this complex and dynamic area of law.
