Robert J. DeBry is the founder and sole proprietor of Robert J. DeBry & Associates. He has practiced law in Salt Lake City for more than 45 years.

His efforts to provide high-quality legal service to our community are unmatched. His team of experienced attorneys and support staff of more than 50 employees operates from three full- service offices located in Salt Lake City, Sandy, and St. George, Utah.

In 2011, Bob was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Utah Association for Justice. And for six consecutive years, Bob was selected to the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” by the American Association for Justice.

Bob is an advocate for victims of drunk driving. He works closely with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). In fact, for every case the law firm settles or wins, we donate $500 to support MADD’s efforts for advocacy, education, and service to the victims of drunk driving accidents.

In addition, Bob is known throughout Utah—and the nation—for his efforts to promote bicycle safety by encouraging everyone to wear helmets while cycling. His campaign to “Buy a Helmet, Save a Life” is responsible for the donation or sale of more than 125,000 helmets in Utah. The campaign allows community members to purchase Consumer Product Safety Commission-approved bicycle helmets, below cost, at a Robert J. DeBry & Associates office for as little as $5 per helmet.

As a father and grandfather, nothing makes Bob happier than his grandkids stopping by for a surprise visit at the office. When he’s not in the office, Bob enjoys cheering on the Utah Jazz, attending the opera and local plays, supporting Ballet West, exploring Utah’s beautiful outdoors, skiing, and swimming.
