Why Us?

At York Howell, our sole focus and objective is to provide the best estate, tax, business and asset protection planning in the Intermountain West. In order to accomplish that, we set a high standard for every attorney who works at our firm.

National Training

Every year, attorneys are required to attend educational courses to maintain their licenses. Most attorneys in Utah stay right here to get that education. The training here in Utah is good. In fact, attorneys at York Howell regularly teach these kinds of classes. But we also realize that if you want the absolute best training, you have to go to national conferences which focus exclusively on a particular area of practice. That’s why each attorney at York Howell attends the top rated national tax and estate planning courses every single year. If you want to be the best, you need to learn from the best.

Regional Footprint

We live in a mobile society and many people have family members, businesses and assets in a variety of locations. Each attorney at York Howell is licensed in multiple States and they study the laws of each of those States, so they can take care of all of your needs. Attorneys at York Howell are licensed to practice law in Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Alaska, Texas, New York, and Wyoming, as well as the US Tax Court.

Personal Attention

Our focus is first and foremost on the client. That’s why we want to meet with you and hear your questions and concerns before you are ever placed “on the clock.” In fact, before we start any work, we will clearly communicate in writing exactly what we recommend, what it will cost, and how long it will take. We will also get the work done and make sure you are completely satisfied before we expect you to pay anything.
