Ken has been with the firm since 2001 and is currently a shareholder. He was born in Santa Barbara, California, but was raised in the Cottonwood Heights area of Utah. Ken graduated from Brigham Young University with both Bachelor and Master degrees in Accounting in 1994. He returned to BYU and graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School in 1998. During his time at BYU Ken focused on estate, business and tax planning. Ken is licensed to practice in the state and federal courts of Utah.

Prior to joining the firm, Ken worked as an associate in a small law firm specializing in estate planning and asset protection. Ken's legal practice focuses primarily on estate planning, probate litigation and business formation. He also represents a number of timeshare owner associations. He enjoys meeting people and answering their questions about wills and trusts, or business formation, with the hope that each person leaves more informed than when they arrived. Ken also represents a number of small businesses and advises them with respect to forming their business, reducing their liability risk and structuring their transactions.

Ken is married with three children and loves hiking, reading and playing volleyball and wallyball (volleyball in a racquetball court).
