As our family struggled through the process of dealing with our mothers death, they were busy taking care of things for us on a legal basis as though they were part of the family... You will not find a Law Firm of better people and Lawyers than this Firm." Bret Christenson - Five-Star Google Review, 2022
Our Office Is in the Center of Salt Lake City
Our law firm is nestled between several Salt Lake City landmarks. We’re just a three-minute drive from Vivint Arena, which is something the devout Jazz fans on our staff are thankful for. And we are just a seven-minute drive east from the University of Utah, the alma mater of several of our medical malpractice lawyers.
We Represent the Mountain West
Our Salt Lake City-based medical malpractice lawyers are well-known for representing clients throughout Utah. We also have members of our team who are licensed to practice in Idaho, Nevada, and Wyoming.
We Handle the Most
And the Most Difficult
Our team has handled and filed more medical malpractice cases than any other law firm in the state of Utah. Taking on and winning so many lawsuits has given us a deep knowledge of how to develop optimal legal strategies. We have refined our approach so that each medical malpractice claim receives the level of attention it deserves.
In addition, we are known for taking on complex cases that normal medical malpractice lawyers cannot.
Our team’s ability to successfully prove negligence in seemingly un-winnable lawsuits is well-established. So much so that nearly 75% of our cases come to us as referrals from other attorneys.
The Attorneys at Younker Hyde Macfarlane Have Won Millions for Utah Clients
Our team has collected many millions of dollars via arbitration awards, settlements, and jury verdicts. Our confidence in our abilities allows us to represent clients without charging anything upfront. We only accept a fee if we succeed in your personal injury, wrongful death, or medical malpractice lawsuit.
Nothing Says More Than Our Verdicts & Settlements
Our team of attorneys has repeatedly collected significant compensation in medical malpractice, personal injury, and wrongful death cases. Several of our arbitration awards and settlements have exceeded $1 million. There are many instances where settlement negotiations were insufficient so we took cases to trial–and won.
For example, our medical malpractice attorneys offered a $1 million settlement to a negligent medical clinic in a wrongful death case. After their denial, we beat them in court and collected $2,940,250.21 for our clients.
We have achieved a considerable amount of seven-figure victories including a $5 million jury award in 2021.
More Reasons Salt Lake City Chooses Us
Our attorneys have earned their first-rate reputation. We have fostered great relationships with hospitals, insurance companies, and defense attorneys, all of whom understand that our involvement means they have a serious case on their hands. This often results in significant pre-litigation settlements that avoid the need for court altogether. That being said, our medical malpractice attorneys never hesitate to go to trial if necessary.
Proving negligent actions in a medical malpractice case is inherently difficult. We focus on these cases and have developed an extensive network of expert witnesses who are vital for proving medical negligence. The nationally renowned medical professionals we work with are true authorities in their field. This includes the authors of definitive books and esteemed medical educators. Their knowledge and status help us compel judges, juries, and even opposing counsels into awarding the compensation our clients deserve.
Our Background in Defense Is Also Crucial
It may seem clear to you that your suffering is the result of obvious medical negligence. However, defense attorneys employ many compelling strategies to protect their clients. Understanding the tactics the opposition will use–and how to dismantle them–is critical for a winning medical malpractice lawsuit.
Our team includes multiple attorneys who have an extensive background in defense. Mr. Younker represented the largest health care provider in our region, Intermountain Healthcare, and Mr. Purcell spent a full decade as a defense attorney.
Our Medical Malpractice Attorneys Hold Several Prestigious Affiliations
Our Attorneys Are Supported by an Elite Staff
Another factor that sets our Salt Lake City team apart from other Utah firms is our elite staff. Our acclaimed attorneys work with an in-house team of paralegals and nurses to help build winning medical malpractice claims. Their knowledge is critical to proving malpractice and negligence as well as choosing which expert medical professionals to call on as witnesses.

Our Renowned Malpractice Representation Costs You Nothing
Over our many decades handling complex medical malpractice matters, we have become acutely aware of the financial burden victims endure. In addition to physical injury, they are often forced to deal with mental anguish, mounting medical bills, and an inability to work.
We refuse to add any additional financial stressors to our clients’ lives. We offer free consultations and handle our cases on a contingency basis. This means we do not get paid at all unless we win your case.
