Candidate for the 2nd Division:


Dear Colleagues:

I am asking you to consider my candidacy for the Utah Bar Commission.  I have had the great honor to have worked with many of you throughout my career.  Currently, I am a Deputy Davis County Attorney.  In the past, I have worked for Salt Lake County and Weber County.

I appreciate all of those that have volunteered their time and worked so hard to help build the Utah Bar.  The Bar does have several challenges.  These challenges include a membership of diverse practice areas, vast geographic separation, and generational differences.

My intention is to be a voice for attorney’s that feel that the Bar does not offer them value for their dues, or they feel underrepresented in services provided by the Bar.  This often includes new attorneys, government attorneys, and small office practitioners.  My hope is to be able build on the great services that are already provided and to start including opportunities for those that are not currently utilizing the Bar.

I humbly ask for your vote.

Matt Hansen
