In creating a law practice, my most important mission has always been to offer the best legal representation I can to my clients. The best way to accomplish this as a solo practitioner is to continually invest in myself.

With that in mind, I am excited to announce that I have accepted an opportunity to serve as a law clerk for the judges of Utah’s Sixth District Court. This opportunity is one that is limited in time (somewhere in the range of one to three years) but will take all of my time and energy. I am confident that this opportunity to research and write for the judges will make a huge difference in the quality and range of legal services I will be able to offer for years to come.

For the time being, Youd Legal will not be accepting new clients. I am happy to refer you to a number of other legal professionals in the area who will be able to work with you in the meantime.

Thank you for your continued support!

Death and Taxes and Death Taxes

“Tis impossible to be sure of anything but Death and Taxes.”

Christopher Bullock, 1716

The idiom has endured over 300 years because of the harsh reality of it: we are all on a march towards the grave down a path lined with tax collectors along the way. While the Grim Reaper only visits us once, the Tax Man is a frequent guest. Perhaps you’ve heard of one final collection, the oft whispered about “death tax.”


This post isn’t meant to reflect my personal opinions about taxation in general, but rather to shed light on the ominous-sounding death tax.
