To say Jesse eats, drinks, and sleeps, the law isn’t much of a stretch. If he isn’t meeting with clients, he’s usually in court or managing the day to day legal affairs at Morrison & Murff, Utah’s largest consumer advocate firm. When Jesse manages to sneak away from the office, you can usually find him on a mountain, either skiing or biking, depending on the season. Jesse’s academic credentials are impressive and he was awarded numerous scholarships, while serving on the managerial board of one his law school’s reviews. Jesse has exceptional legal research and writing skills, which he uses to deliver great results on complex issues. In fact, many attorneys in the state turn to Jesse for complex bankruptcies issues. He has clients referred to him from other attorneys on an almost weekly basis.  Jesse believes in the old saying; the best defense is a good offense, and why he believes in aggressively representing his clients.
