When you need legal representation in Southern Utah, Snow Christensen & Martineau has the experienced lawyers you need.

SC&M lawyer, Ruth Shapiro, was recently asked how we are “different” from other Utah law firms by a potential client. It came as no surprise that she responded “Simply put, we are better. We are smart, appropriately aggressive, ethical, and understand that the sum of all of our parts is better than any of us alone.” We couldn’t agree more!
