He Takes on the Toughest Cases

Mr. Hyde and his team are known for taking on and winning complex cases that other lawyers cannot resolve. Since 2010, he has practiced in all aspects of tort litigation.

His years spent handling complicated cases give us deep insight into how to prove liability in especially difficult lawsuits. 

He Works With an
Elite Team

Mr. Hyde works alongside distinguished attorneys including John Macfarlane, as well as a full staff of nurses and paralegals. We have built up an extensive network of expert witnesses that we draw upon to win cases. These witnesses include national medical authorities, authors of definitive textbooks, and esteemed professors.

He Has Built an Impressive Reputation

Mr. Hyde and the team he works with have earned great renown throughout Salt Lake City and Northern Utah. Our reputation for winning tough cases often persuades insurance companies and the legal opposition to offer substantial settlements in early pre-litigation instead of attempting to defeat us in court. When a fair settlement is not offered, Mr. Hyde and his team do not hesitate to push a case forward into trial.
