WEBVTT 00:00:07.057 --> 00:00:10.843 A little over eight years ago, my wife went to a doctor's appointment. 00:00:10.844 --> 00:00:13.943 She was prescribed some medication that she really shouldn't have been, 00:00:14.071 --> 00:00:19.000 ultimately, led to her passing away shortly after. 00:00:19.457 --> 00:00:20.900 After my wife passed away, 00:00:21.529 --> 00:00:25.313 my mother-in-law knew an attorney in Salt Lake. 00:00:25.314 --> 00:00:27.570 Things seemed really off about the whole situation, 00:00:27.571 --> 00:00:30.643 so she recommended that I go talk to this attorney 00:00:30.644 --> 00:00:33.343 who ultimately referred me to Younker Hyde McFarlane. 00:00:33.344 --> 00:00:35.571 Ashton seemed like he was a really good listener. 00:00:35.572 --> 00:00:38.371 Stayed very neutral every time I talked to him, 00:00:38.714 --> 00:00:40.171 gathering information. 00:00:41.671 --> 00:00:42.957 From my experience 00:00:43.129 --> 00:00:46.200 and really looking at it through a balanced lens, 00:00:46.557 --> 00:00:49.257 I was told upfront, this is going to be a long process. 00:00:49.400 --> 00:00:51.743 It's going to take a lot of work. Things move slow. 00:00:52.029 --> 00:00:55.686 Every time I reached out with a phone call, or text, or an email, 00:00:56.286 --> 00:00:59.843 they replied to me right away and just kept me in a loop. 00:00:59.943 --> 00:01:02.014 I wanted some more clarity on the whole process. 00:01:02.015 --> 00:01:04.686 I wanted some answers from my children, mostly. 00:01:05.071 --> 00:01:11.200 I felt a sense of relief that my two children are going to… 00:01:11.201 --> 00:01:12.586 They're missing their mom. 00:01:12.587 --> 00:01:14.843 It's the most important person, I think, in their whole life. 00:01:14.844 --> 00:01:16.843 I think giving them some more answers, 00:01:16.844 --> 00:01:22.442 having some clarity, and also some type of compensation, 00:01:22.443 --> 00:01:24.640 we were able to set up a couple of trusts for the kids, 00:01:24.641 --> 00:01:27.386 and that's going to help them hopefully navigate some challenging times 00:01:27.387 --> 00:01:30.428 that they're going to have, I'm sure, just in life in general. 00:01:30.429 --> 00:01:32.271 I think they did a great job. 00:01:32.487 --> 00:01:35.029 I felt more confident every time I would talk to Ashton, 00:01:35.030 --> 00:01:36.499 as he would dive into the details 00:01:36.500 --> 00:01:40.400 and explain his insight or perspective about the whole thing, 00:01:40.401 --> 00:01:43.257 and you feel like somebody's fighting for you.
