Peter W. Summerill

Utah Trial Attorney

Most people…


never think they might, one day, need an attorney. Now, you have too many unanswered questions. Because of someone's negligence, carelessness or proud stupidity, your life has been turned completely upside down. You may not even be the direct victim. You may have lost one of the most important people in your life. Whether a wrongful death or serious injury, you know things must be set right but also feel overwhelmed with where to even begin.

The insurance company's best defense, and hope, is that you do nothing.


A reputation for helping people.
