About Us

Since 1971 Utah Legal Clinic has offered quality, affordable legal services and civil rights representation.

Utah Legal Clinic has a knowledgeable and experienced legal team similar to a traditional law office, but without the associated costs. Our services range from Do-It-Yourself Divorces, wills, adoptions and name changes to limited-scope or full-representation in divorce/paternity, civil actions, criminal defense and more. In addition, we are dedicated to our founder, Brian Barnard's legacy of protecting civil liberties. Unlike larger law firms, we are positioned to defend anyone’s rights regardless of scope, politics or financial return. We hope you will trust us to help you through your legal challenges.

The Clinic's Staff

Our Board

The Board of Directors is comprised of Brian's brother, an artist who resides in the Texas Hill country, and former employees of Utah Legal Clinic. Cumulatively, the employees have nearly 25 years of experience working under Brian’s leadership and as such are uniquely qualified to guide the operations and vision of his law office. After pursuing new career opportunities, each maintained close friendships with Brian and adamantly support his legacy. The Board, which includes proud University of Utah alumni, brings diverse experience within the public and private sectors in teaching, creative arts, law, human resources and benefits administration.

Utah Legal Clinic supports other non-profits in the community and we are always looking for qualified interns and attorneys to further our mission.»
