MADD (MOTHER AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING)
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.

JOHNSON & JOHNSON TALCUM POWDER/OVARIAN CANCER LAWSUIT
Women regularly use talcum powder to maintain feminine hygiene. Talc comes from rock deposits that can be found all around the world, and is characterized by its softness. In fact, talc is the softest mineral on earth. While this soft powder seems harmless, a study from 2016 found in the Journal “Epidemiology” claimed that women who routinely applied this powder to their genitals had a 33 percent higher risk of developing ovarian cancer.
MIRENA IUD LAWSUITS
The first Intra-Uterine Device (IUD) was released in 1993. Since then, this contraceptive has grown in popularity and now more than two million women use Mirena IUDs.

There have been many cases of defective IUDs causing pain, injury and in some case, death.
