Power You Need. Attention You Deserve. A Reputation for Getting Real Results and Protecting the Rights of the Injured in Utah

Salt Lake City's Premier Personal Injury Attorneys


At Cutt, Kendell & Olson we understand that the impact of an injury can be devastating physically, financially and emotionally. Navigating the legal system, negotiating with insurance companies, and finding the best medical care is an intimidating and overwhelming process.

The goal of our attorneys is to advocate aggressively on behalf of our clients to get them the compensation they need. We focus on your case so you can focus on your recovery.

Our skilled Salt Lake City personal injury attorneys serve people, not insurance giants or corporations, and we work tirelessly to obtain justice and maximum compensation on their behalves.

Our team of trial lawyers specializes in a range of personal injury matters, including:

Our firm operates differently than other personal injury firms. While most firms take as many cases as they can, we deliberately limit our caseload to better focus on each case, work harder for every client, and make no compromises in the results we achieve.

We also only handle cases with severe injuries - our Salt Lake City personal injury lawyers know the lifelong impact a brain injury, spinal cord injury, or other major trauma can have on a person's life, and we are committed to helping injury victims and their families move forward.

Hundreds of lawyers and judges have referred cases to us because we have a reputation for getting real results. Since we opened our doors in 2000, we have recovered over $600 million for our clients through jury verdicts, settlements, and arbitration.
