Trupiano Law PC
My mom had hired attorney Kim Trupiano to represent me in removal proceedings at Salt Lake City immigration court. Whenever my parents needed Kim consultation/advice on my case, Kim returned the calls and made herself available as much as she could. In the first meeting with my parents Kimberly discussed the case defense strategy in a lot of detail, explaining and drawing out a time line so we would be prepared. She explained it so my parents could understand how Kim would be handling my cases. The defense strategies were very impressive to my parents and me; they believed Kim will win the immigration deportation case with the wonderful defense strategy. Thanks to her hard work, Kim was finally successful in cancelling the deportation proceedings against me at the Immigration Court. Currently, Kim Trupiano is helping me with some other criminal charges to try to avoid more immigration consequences that would cause me to be deported to Serbia – a country I don’t know at all anymore and where I don’t know anyone and which is away from all of my family here in the United States. I am very happy to recommend attorney Kim Trupiano for whoever needs an experienced criminal and immigration attorney. Kimberly has a lot of experience in both immigration and criminal defense fields; that is what makes it so she can be so successful in immigration cases with criminal history problems. People who have criminal conviction are not always bad people and Kim understands that. Another good thing is Kimberly worked to accommodate the client’s financial capability to pay for legal fees. Kim had worked out a payment plan with a reasonable monthly payment so my parents and I can afford her helping me.Thanks Kim a lot!

Maybe Emy is the best because she has a perspective from several countries. I was fascinated to know Emy is from south africa, where she saw injustice in families daily. I am just a local woman, never been anywhere other than mexico on vacation or to North Carolina to see my ex-husbands family on a trip so as you can imagine, I haven't seen much hardship here in Utah. I think because of that I didn't know who to turn to, my bishop advised I stay married, so I did for a number of years, unhappily. My ex-husband was mentally abusive, you don't know just how bad it is until you can't leave the house without anxiety and you always doubt yourself and feel terribly about who you are, you hate your reflection. I spoke with Emy and she set me on the path to rediscovering myself. I was able to file divorce and she helped me when my bishop tried to advise me against it. I am still an active member of the church, but I came close to the edge and without Emy holding my hand through the entire ordeal, I may have caved. Emy helped file, finalize and come out a better person from my divorce. I have a home, and can finally get back to finishing my degree and getting a job, something my ex-husband wouldn't let me do. Thank you Emy for saving my life, truly. This isn't me being sappy, it is me being thankful knowing someone was in my corner, for me! Best wishes to you and yours always, Debby J.

Schatz Anderson and Associates
Two years ago today I hired Schatz, Anderson and Associates. I hired them out of SLC because I work there, although I live in Cedar City. Charles Stewart did everything he could to make sure my needs were met and that my concerns with the proceedings were always resolved. Being in the military this was sensitive case and could have resulted in me losing my security clearance and ultimately my job. Charles made sure to postpone the hearing long enough to resolve my deployment issues and made sure to push the trial when it needed to be resolved. Ultimately, I was found NOT GUILTY in front of a Jury Trial. If you know Cedar City you will understand how hard this is. Cedar City is a zero tolerance City and the prosecuting attorney would not plea bargain. Charles drove from SLC for all the hearings and even had a lawyer from St. George that was more familiar with the Cedar City system come in to help smooth things over with the small town locals. Charles knows all the ins and outs of the DUI legal system. He was able to break everything down and explain the technicalities of the situation to the jury helping them find me NOT GUILTY. I am very pleased, and hopefully will never have to go through this again but will make sure to let my friends in Cedar City know about this firm. Thanks for everything.

Liberty Law Group
I highly recommend James, I had him represent me in court to challenge a traffic citation due to a serious collision. Although the violation dictated a judgement against me there were some extenuating circumstances that I felt contributed to the accident that were due to the other drivers neglect and irresponsibility. James was able to convince the prosecutor that the other driver was at fault and the citation was dismissed. I was pretty surprised, I was just hoping for a reduced fine. After the hearing James told me how things played out with the prosecutor and it turned out that there were some circumstances in his meeting with the prosecutor that he was able to take advantage off that swung things in our favor. In other words James knew the system, saw an opportunity and acted on it. I've worked with other attorneys with my divorce and never felt comfortable with them but felt very comfortable working with James and was confident that I was getting the best representation and would have still felt that way if things hadn't worked out as well as they did.

I feel relieved today. It was a long immigration journey I have been going through and finally it was over with the GREAT victory. I hired Kimberly Trupiano representing me in applying for asylum and we got approval from the immigration judge. The Department of Homeland Security attorney appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals, but Kimberly was also able to win. How amazing!!!! I remained an asylee for a while and USCIS has granted me green card few days ago. Eventually I will be eligible to apply for US citizenship. Thanks Kim and Thanks God! It is no doubt Kimberly is very good handling the toughest immigration cases. She is very knowledgeable, aggressive and has a lot of experience practicing immigration law. She tried her best to get the most positive outcome for my case. I highly recommend Kim for whoever needs a good lawyer. You will be in a good hand. Kim also discounted the legal fees a lot to help me out. She offered me small monthly payments to pay off the case. She really helped me out in the most difficult situation in my life.

Law Office of Jonathan Miller
We used the estate planning services of Jonathan Miller in August 2015 to create a family trust. We had not done any estate planning - we didn't know where to begin and were overwhelmed with how much work we thought it would be.Working with Jonathan Miller was the best decision we could have made. He kept the process really simple and tailored it specifically to our needs. We were able to fill out a simple questionnaire before our first meeting so that he had an idea of what we wanted to do. With just a couple of brief office visits and a little information gathering on our own time, we were able to have a trust in place for our family. His price was more than reasonable, and he was up-front with us about what was included. We were pleasantly surprised that the estate planning process wasn't as long and painful as we had anticipated; it was actually very simple to complete. We only wish we had done it sooner. We highly recommend Jonathan Miller for estate planning services.

Emy Cordano, Attorney at Law
Emy helped me keep the roof over my head and that of my children. We had only been married a year but had 3 children together. He didn't cheat, he didn't do anything horrible per se, he simply decided one day not to be married anymore and told me to move out and that I could see my children 50% of the time. I was gobsmacked and turned to Emy for advice. It didn't take long after our first meeting to feel that Emy was on my side. She was very down to Earth, asked a LOT of questions but now I see why, because I got the one thing from the divorce I needed more than child support. I couldn't take my kids out of school, move jobs and find a new home all at once so without Emy I may have found myself homeless, jobless and on the streets! She is worth it! Thank you Emy for a great experience and for a very fast divorce. I hate to say it, to anybody, but if you are thinking about divorce, have kids in the mix, are worried about alimony and child support, please think of Emy.

I was going through the motions of attempting to serve and gain consent from my son's biological father for a name change. I did all the paperwork on my own but I lost faith when he continued to delay returning the signed consent form back to me. Emy gave me the courage and tools to stand up to him and let him know that I had her on my side if he delayed another month. I should note that all I did was an hour consult with Emy. She provided me her rates if it did end up going to court, but remained confident that I could finish what I started based on her advice. Emy is a unique lawyer that has a good grasp on the outcomes for family law. She was compassionate and honest with me and that is greatly appreciated. I did end up getting the consent form back and was able to change my son's last name to the appropriate one this month. I couldn't thank her enough and I'm glad I have on my side if anything else should arise and I need an attorney.

Trupiano Law PC
I hired Kimberly at Trupiano Law represented me at USCIS and the immigration court. The case was successful closed and I finally became the legal permanent resident. Kimberly is the most aggressive and experienced lawyer I ever met in Salt Lake City. I had some consultations with two lawyers, after that I almost lost the hope in the immigration process to become legal until I found Trupiano Law online. She is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and attentive. She always tried her best to come up with the positive outcomes for my case. She was willing to work after hours to accommodate my work schedule in meeting me about the case. She offers the payment plan to help me out financially. I made the great choice in hiring her for this tough immigration matter. I am grateful to her. She and her staff is very professional, friendly and caring in working with me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing an immigration lawyer.

Berry, David T
Eight years ago, I got sick and medical bills began piling up. Then our business tanked due to the economy and bad turned to worse. We had to start paying bills with credit cards; it was downhill from there. Despite our best efforts, bankruptcy became necessary. We ended up going with Berry & Tripp (www.berrytripp.com). David (Dave) Berry is the attorney that helped us through the process and eventually file. Having to file bankruptcy was one of the most difficult and humbling experiences that I do not wish upon anyone. Yet, having Dave as our attorney made the process bearable. He specializes in bankruptcy and truly is an expert in his field. After filing, Dave taught us steps on how to begin rebuilding our credit. The staff at Berry & Tripp was always friendly and helpful. Overall, the bankruptcy was awful but Dave Berry was wonderful. We highly recommend him.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
