SC&M Associates

We take a long-term approach to developing associates and actively provide our attorneys with training, support, and exposure to many different areas of law.

Each associate at SC&M is assigned a shareholder who oversees the associate’s progress.  A strong emphasis is placed on these mentoring relationships to assist in the transition from law student to practitioner and from associate to shareholder.  We believe in the value of timely feedback and provide comprehensive semi-annual evaluations of all associates during their first two years of practice and annual evaluations thereafter.

My decision to leave an established Salt Lake City law firm after a 17+ year tenure, and make the move to SC&M, was not something I took lightly. The overriding factor was the people at SC&M. There are good and great attorneys in almost every law firm but the SC&M difference is in the aggregate, not in the individuals. An attorney is only as good as the people with whom s/he surrounds themselves. The people at SC&M make everyone – from the staff to paralegals, to attorneys – better. Now, after 2.5+ years at SC&M, I can unequivocally assert that my reason for making the switch to SC&M is a reality.”  –  Ruth A. Shapiro



After practicing for 13 years at a small firm in St. George, I was looking for something new to help advance my career and to help better serve my existing clients while maintaining the lifestyle of a small firm attorney. I found that and a whole lot more at SC&M’s office in St. George. Not only has joining SC&M helped me accomplish my goals but I also walked into a team of other lawyers and staff that were professional, courteous, friendly, and caring of myself and my clients. Joining SC&M has definitely allowed me to maintain my small town lifestyle all while being connected and integrated with my colleagues, partners, and staff from the Salt Lake office.”  – Steven W. Beckstrom 



I joined SC&M not only because of its reputation in the community but also because of the attorneys and staff I used to bump into in the lobby of our shared office building.  They seemed to be happy, collegial, outgoing, and simply wonderful people.  Since day one, I have felt like a part of the SC&M team.  For anyone that is a collegial and collaborative person, there is no better place to work than here.”  –  Robert B.
