The roots of McKay, Burton & Thurman reach back to 1935 when three well-known Utah lawyers, Henry D. Moyle, David Lawrence McKay and Lynn S. Richards, formed a partnership. Over time the firm added attorneys and it developed into a general practice, full-service law office.

In 1945, Lynn Richards left the firm and was replaced by Wilford M. Burton, who had just completed a successful term as a Salt Lake City Judge. At that time, the firm became known as Moyle, McKay & Burton. In April, 1946, Henry D. Moyle resigned his position with the firm after being called to serve as a member of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. William Taft Thurman practiced with the firm from 1951 to 1961, at which time he was appointed by President Kennedy to serve as a United States Attorney General for the District of Utah. After resigning from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1969, William Taft Thurman returned to the firm and later became a named partner, effectively changing the name to McKay, Burton & Thurman.

More recently, in 2001, William T. Thurman, who had practiced with the firm since 1974, was appointed to serve as a United States Bankruptcy Judge for the District of Utah. And in 2010, Joel T. Marker, who started with McKay Burton & Thurman upon his graduation from the University of Utah in 1984, joined Judge Thurman as a Bankruptcy Judge for the District of Utah.

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?
