End Text Wrecks Campaign

The viral campaign to help End Text Wrecks! With over 2 million views on Youtube, End Text Wrecks was designed for people to pledge to put down the phone and stop texting while driving with a fun dance.


As lawyers, we’ve seen the tragic impact of drunk driving, and we’ve helped many families pick up the pieces after these accidents occur. We’re equally focused on finding a way to stop drunk driving before it occurs. We’re strong supporters of MADD, and for every drunk driving case we win or settle we donate $500 to MADD. Since 2010, our law firm has donated $44,500 to MADD.


We want to keep our community’s roads safe-especially during busy holiday weekends. Our Free Rides Home program reimburses adults who have been drinking or need a safe way home up to $35 for a cab ride home within the Salt Lake City metro area.


Find out about the various organizations and initiatives we support throughout the community.


Learn about the bills we support and oppose in the Utah State Legislature, and find out how these bills might impact the rights of injured Utahans.


Texting behind the wheel puts you and others on our roads in danger. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of resources to help the community learn about the risks of texting while driving.
