Helping Utahns with Personal Injury Law Since August 2018
Johnson Livingston is a law firm that focuses primarily on personal injury cases. Our firm is dedicated to treating you the way you deserve, with attention, compassion, and respect. We are also here to stand firm for you and with you through your case.
It is our job to help you navigate and understand the legal world so that together we can take the right steps at the right time to fight for what you need. We are here to negotiate and, if necessary, go to trial to help your case be fully resolved with your best interests in mind.
Every Person Deserves Quality Representation & Legal Counsel After an Injury
Johnson Livingston started in August 2018 when Blake Johnson and Todd Livingston came together to create a personal injury firm that is built with people’s best interests in mind.
After first-hand experience, Blake and Todd were tired of the ways that insurance companies, adjusters, and others took advantage of situations and circumstances that affect the long-term quality of life for individuals and families after an injury.
Our firm was created based on our belief that every person deserves quality representation that provides real support and information during a personal injury claim. With every client, we give 100% of our effort because every person matters, regardless of your case size. If you are injured and you need support to file a claim, or to go through the settlement process or take your case completely through court, we promise to do what we see is best for you and your case.
You can count on us to listen, take the time to hear your concerns, and to communicate in a way that you understand through the whole settlement process. We are here to make sure that your case has the attention it needs and we will take it fully to trial if that is what we need to do.
Our goal is to raise the level of quality you can expect from a Personal Injury Attorney here in Utah, so that when you make a claim you are taken seriously and have a higher opportunity for a fair case and settlement.
Everyone deserves equal care and an opportunity to have someone fight for their case, and have their personal injury case taken seriously.
Those who are injured and need legal representation deserve to have a lawyer and a firm that will treat them like a real person, know their clients by name and what happened. No one deserves to be treated like a number, or dollar amount.
No matter how large we grow we are committed to providing quality representation, consistent communication, and support through your personal injury legal case. We care about you and your life, and we will stand for you like your case matters because it does.
We are here to take the time to know your experience, your injury, the ins and outs of your case. If a personal injury case is to be taken seriously, that means you need an attorney who will take the time to gather the evidence, and someone you can count on to work for and with you through the process.
We promise to provide quality counsel support through your specific case, we stay in communication, and we are here to help you along the way.
Every Person Matters
We care first and foremost about people, and we are driven to do what’s best for our clients, based on each specific case. Our team knows your name, and your case. We promise to treat you with respect and explain each part of the process in language that you will understand and work with you to get a fair settlement. We promise that when you start working with us we will take the time to know your case, and you can count on us to go with you through the whole process.
For any case to be successful, you need an attorney who knows the legal process inside and outside. Because of our expertise, we know that for a case to go well we need to prepare, we need to make sure we have the right documents, information, and evidence that sheds light on your experience and what happened and why you are making a claim or filing a lawsuit. Preparation is key so that we can accurately and authentically represent your case.
Active communication is a two-way street, we are here to listen, understand, and to help address your concerns, and answer your questions. It’s also our job to educate you and prepare you for the steps in the process and make sure we have what we need along the way. If you have questions, we will answer, if you are worried about something we want to hear your concern, if you call we will pick up or call you back as soon as possible. We also will reach out to you at least monthly throughout the duration of your case.
If you are not sure if your case is worth pursuing, it’s our job to let you know that. We will not lead you on. It’s important for us that you know that we expect you to be honest with us, and you can count on us to be honest and transparent with you.
