Joshua Baron's Summary

In 2009, I co-founded a law firm in a tiny office in downtown Salt Lake City. We were two lawyers and only one desk. We have now served hundreds of clients in areas ranging from criminal defense and family law to business litigation and immigration.

I believe that my clients deserve an attorney who understands their unique situation and has the skills to deliver the results they are looking for.

    • November 9, 2012
