Devin Quackenbush was born and raised in Utah County, Utah. He became interested in the law at an early age. During his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University, Devin interned for the FBI in Quantico, Virginia. From his experience at the FBI, Devin's interests in the law increased and he decided to pursue a career as a lawyer.

Devin went to law school at Creighton University where he was the Executive Editor of the Creighton Law Review. He was published for his article on mandatory immunizations and religious exemptions. During and after law school, Devin found opportunities in Alaska, beginning with working for the District Attorney's Office in Palmer, Alaska. Devin passed the Alaska Bar Exam and was offered a position as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Eric Smith of the Alaska Superior Court. Working as a judicial law clerk for Judge Smith, Devin was exposed to a variety of cases from attorneys representing people seeking their day in court. As a judicial law clerk, Devin gained a unique perspective of why some techniques utilized by lawyers are more persuasive than others.

After his clerkship term ended, Devin accepted a position at a prominent law firm in Anchorage, Alaska, where he represented clients in cases involving professional liability, municipal litigation representing the City of Anchorage, appellate practice, employment and labor law, products liability, commercial litigation and professional licensing issues. Devin also assisted in cases for high-profile politicians, multiple insurance companies, as well as for heavy equipment, helicopter, firearm and a number of other product manufacturers.

Devin returned to Utah and became licensed to practice law in Utah. In 2014, Devin opened Quackenbush Legal, PLLC, and has been helping people in cases that include family law, child custody, child support, alimony, divorce, adoption and other family law related cases. The Quackenbush Legal, PLLC, office is located in Murray, allowing Devin to represent individuals all over Salt Lake, Utah, Davis and Weber Counties. Devin discovered that often good people find themselves in precarious situations with the law and need quality legal representation to pursue their rights and especially the best interests of their children. Devin endeavors to help these people and businesses by aggressively representing their interests. Devin's track record of success in Utah has benefited people from all walks of life.

After founding Quackenbush Legal, PLLC, the practice has grown significantly, which has allowed Devin to expand his field of practice to wills, trusts and estates, probate, business formations, and contract drafting and litigation. Because of Devin's work, Quackenbush Legal, PLLC, is able to provide the most up-to-date wills, trusts and wealth planning that is crucial to helping individuals protect their children and grandchildren as well as direct how their wealth is protected during their lives and passed on to those they care about afterward.

Mr. Quackenbush helped me with a difficult custody case for my daughter. My ex was trying to take my daughter from me when she was just an infant. Mr. Quackenbush helped me in court and then again in mediation. I couldn't be happier. He did everything he promised he would and knew the court system so that I did not have any surprises.

Devin did such a great job on my construction law suit cases that I referred him to my friend who was going through a divorce. Devin did a great job in that case too and my friend was very happy. I know she has referred him to other people too. Devin is easy to work with and works hard to make sure you get the best orders from the court. We were able to mediate everything and Devin set it up so that mediation was successful. I highly recommend Devin and Quackenbush Legal to anyone.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
