David is very knowledgeable and experienced. After dealing with a lawyer that did nothing and charged plenty for it, David was a relief! He got the case moving in a productive direction and provided realistic insight and expectations. He communicated with the other lawyer, set up mediation, advised me during the mediation and followed through with finalizing the divorce modification paperwork. Of course, both sides had to compromise, but we resolved many problems and the outcome was an improvement.David didn't nickel and dime me for every email I sent - which was amazing! It's hard to work with a lawyer knowing every request for direction is going to cost you $100. David was not like that at all! It felt like he was NOT focused on my money. Thank you for that!The down side of this was that I never knew where I stood with money. I paid a reasonable retainer, but there were no invoices to show how much of it had been used. It was almost as if I was paying a flat rate rather than hourly. The retainer paid for the meditation process. I think I prefer a flat rate to an hourly model, but since I didn't know, I was always worried the money would run out.The next time I needed to go to court, I asked if the retainer was gone and he said it was and I would need to pay more - which was totally deserved - but some forewarning on how the money works would be helpful.But if being uncertain on the standing of my payment is the trade-off for being able to communicate with liberty (and David usually responds within 24 hrs at all hours of the day), it's totally worth it. That's five star service.I took off a star for our next court proceedings. The other party filed an Order To Show Cause without taking us to mediation. I advised David of what should be in the response to the Order and he kept asking for more details. I think he was stalling, because I had given plenty of detail. After a couple efforts with David, I just wrote the response myself. He updated it and submitted.When the court date arrived, David was late - which was not a big deal because he knew the docket and still arrived before our case came up (David knows his stuff). The problem was that I didn't know the docket. So wondering when my representation would arrive added stress to an already stressful day.Once both lawyers showed up, they decided to negotiate. The other party knew they didn't have a case. Her bad behavior outpaced mine by far, her Order was without grounds and she was abusing the court system by skipping mediation. That last one is actually grounds for her paying my legal fees.But when David met with the other attorney, it was the other guy calling the shots. And when David came to talk to me, the compromise he offered involved only what the other party was fighting about. - No, David. She's in breach of contact in five ways and this compromise completely ignores those. Go back and fight for our side.When David came back, there was a new compromise that was better, but was still inadequate. Legally, she should be paying my legal fees. When he came back again, David talked me out of pushing for legal fees. I don't know why; they had no legal grounds and we had a strong case.Regardless, over and over I found myself arguing with my own lawyer (David) to fight for me. Isn't that his whole purpose? If I'd taken David's initial proposal, I'd have been screwed royally. He got a pretty good agreement after I sent him back twice. But why did he bring me a horrible proposal twice? Was his relationship with the other representation getting in the way? I don't know. But considering how much I had to negotiate with David before he would negotiate for me (when that should be his default), I wouldn't call it a five star performance.After this occasion, considering the frequent aggression of the other party, I decided to get a more aggressive lawyer, one that charges for every email. ☹️Overall, I loved working with David, but with this opponent, I need someone who'll go toe to toe for me.

From the first time I spoke with David he was super helpful and responsive. I transitioned over to him after dealing with a lawyer that was slow and constantly giving me the run around. He made the process quick and easy for me, so much so that one day, he emailed me and said I was divorced and I did not believe him.

David is amazing and I especially recommend him for anything that feels IMPOSSIBLE! He takes impossibility as a challenge to make things possible.David is highly experienced and I’ve referred him to many family and friends. He is more than fair, even GENEROUS, with his fees and is flexible with retainer payments to accommodate those unplanned and emergent situations.David knows the “ins and outs” of Family Law and is an incredible negotiator! He thinks outside the box and holds his clients’ interests in high regard. Lower your stress and anxiety...give him a call now! You’ll be glad you did.

At first i had my doubts with my full custody case i took to Mr. Pedrazas. But he was an honest person who gave me the answers of not what i want to hear but what could happen if i don’t provide the right evidence to fight for my kids full custody. Most of the time we expect things to go our way but with the knowledge Mr. Pedrazas have about the law makes him the right person to be on your side legally. And because of him my kids are now safe with me and now have full custody! Thank you Mr. Pedrazas

David helped me with my divorce a couple years ago. Very quick and painless process with his help. From the initial consultation, he was very straightforward and helped me understand the options I had so that I could make the best decision for myself. He was reasonably priced and prompt in both communication and filing. Definitely recommend him to anyone in the Salt Lake Area

I strongly recommend David for anyone who is dealing with extremely high conflict ex spouses. Child custody evaluations are becoming common on cases when parents dispute schedules, and they can be time consuming, confusing and expensive. David is very knowledgeable of evaluations, statutes, rules, and motions. He successfully fought to see that my ex had his entire motion dismissed completely in the last few weeks. His court demeanor and preparation is exactly what is needed when you have lengthy court procedures that aim to change parent time or custody standings. This is the attorney you need if you have any custody or divorce needs!

David made sure that not only did my divorce go smoothly, but that things were taken care of. He pushed to make sure I got what I wanted and what was fair. He gave great advise and always had an answer to my questions. He made sure that when it was my court date or paperwork needed to be done, that my case was the main focus. I heard about him from a friend and I’m glad that he is my lawyer!

David did an amazing job, the ex wanted to take 100% of my house and my boy and leave me with nothing. David made sure I got 50/50 on both... everything I asked for, he gave me. Thank you David.

I would strongly recommend hiring or consulting with David during any family or child law case. His experience shows in his ability to provide clear answers during what is usually a very difficult time in life. He has been established in the local area for some time and knows how to navigate the system to get desired results. In addition to frequent email communications, he was flexible with my work schedule and we met face to face multiple times after normal work hours to ensure that we were both on the same page and that we had all the necessary data to present a strong case. That was a big deal to me, and David will do that for his clients. On top of all that, he is a friendly person that is understanding of the difficult circumstances of a divorce and child custody which he puts all efforts into helping you get results. I would not hesitate to continue consulting with David if there are future needs.

I went to David with a custody issue that had significant time restraints and what I’m sure what not the “norm” (if there is such a thing). David did not miss a beat. Always quick to return a call or a rambling email. Highly recommend!!

I have to give kudos to Delta Airlines. I took a trip to Nashville on March 1st 2019. After a very disappointing business conference and feeling like it was a huge waste of money and my time I arrived at the terminal with time to spare. So I got lunch and ate it while waiting to board. When the time came I boarded the plane and was looking forward to just getting home when all of a sudden a flight attendant was calling out my name. My attention perked up at hearing my name and I was obviously a little confused. She came over and asked, "are you Julie Jensen?" I said yes, and she proceeds to hand me my wallet. In my bad mood and feeling the whole trip had been a huge let down I inadvertently had walked off and left my wallet sitting on the floor in the terminal. Not only did it have cash, but my passport, License, credit cards ect but it also had my layover and airfare ticket to get home. I didn't even know I had walked off and left it until she brought it to me. I can't even tell you the rush of emotions I felt all at once in the instance. I will be forever grateful that the plane did not take off before I got my wallet back and that the flight attendant was discreet when handling the situation. Thank you Delta.

Child Custody and Child Support Matters

Children do best when their relationship with each parent remains as consistent as possible during and after the divorce. If you and your former spouse have minor children together, your attorney will continue to focus on their best interests and encourage all parties to do the same. Whether you will receive or pay child support, share custody or have primary custody, your divorce lawyer in West Jordan, UT will make sure the outcome is best for your children.

Division of Assets and Debts

Deciding which assets and debts are marital and which are individual can be challenging when going through a divorce in West Jordan, UT. This is especially true when it comes to deciding who should remain in the marital home and who should move out. You will also need to divide other assets such as vehicles and retirement accounts and debts such as credit cards and medical bills. Because the decisions you make now will affect you for years to come, West Jordan divorce lawyer David Pedrazas will fight hard for your rights and ensure that you’re happy with the settlement before proposing it to the other attorney.

How to File for Divorce in Utah

The first thing to understand about divorce in Utah is that this is a no-fault state. That means only one party needs to initiate the proceedings and doesn’t have to provide an official reason for seeking a divorce. Both will sign a statement that the marriage has broken down beyond repair when completing the divorce paperwork. Your attorney can assist you with preparing the divorce filing if you’re the petitioner or respond to it if you receive a divorce complaint from your spouse.

One party must have been a resident of Utah and the county where he or she petitioned for or responded to the divorce complaint for at least 90 days. Utah also imposes a 90-day wait until a court hearing regarding the divorce decree takes place.
