Experience:

After working in a small firm environment for several years, Utah attorney Jonathan Moffitt joined Pearson Butler & Carson PLLC to continue his focus on transactional work for small businesses and estate planning.

A native of Ridgecrest, California, Jonathan earned his Communications degree from Brigham Young University in 2001. With plans to attend law school, Jonathan briefly returned to California to teach special education classes at Burroughs High School, where he was also the assistant Varsity Basketball coach during the 2001-2002 season and the head Junior Varsity coach in the 2002-2003 season.

In 2003, Jonathan commenced his legal studies, graduating from the University of Utah’s S.J. Quinney College of Law in 2006. Jonathan and his family remained in Utah while he began his career as in-house counsel for CHG Healthcare Services, Inc., a medical staffing company with headquarters in Salt Lake City. To broaden his legal skills, Jonathan transitioned to a litigation firm in 2007 before starting his own practice in 2011.

Throughout his career, Jonathan has successfully represented clients in litigation matters involving areas of law such as multi-jurisdiction construction disputes, wrongful lien prosecution, and family law matters.  Recently, he helped a client successfully defend himself from a multi-million dollar claim and prevail on the counter claims to obtain a judgment in excess of one million dollars.

In the past few years, Jonathan has moved his focus from primarily litigation to business transaction work. He has helped his clients set up hundreds of small business entities and has also represented multi-million dollar companies in drafting various contracts. In addition to business transactions, Jonathan has turned his attention to helping families across the state establish and maintain estate plans for probate avoidance and asset protection.

Outside of his career, Jonathan enjoys spending time with his wife and five children, participating in sports, reading, and learning to play the guitar.
