About Us

Small Firm. Big Results.

Both Ephraim and John have worked in traditional firms and grew frustrated with the big firm mentality where customer service and efficiency were not priorities. Wanting to improve on the outdated law firm business model, Ephraim and John are disrupting the industry by shifting focus to the client's needs and finding ways to improve the client's experience through technology.

At Olson Wiest Law, we offer clients a new level of service:

  • Consultations are always free. Let's be honest, your situation is different from other clients we have. While we pride ourselves in an ability to roll up our sleeves and get your work done, we also want to make sure that there is a good relationship and a solid understanding of your specific needs. We want to ensure that you are comfortable working with us, and vice versa.
  • Transparent fees. No one likes unexpected, large bills. We discuss legal fees with our clients before work has begun and either agree upon a fixed fee or on smaller periodic bills. We are also one of the only tax law firms in Utah that is willing to take IRS tax cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay only if you get results.
  • Affordability. Since we are a small firm, we can avoid the costly overhead of larger firms. That means that we can charge you lower rates for our services. We also accept credit card payments and bank-to-bank transfers to make payment easier for you. We can also offer payment plans upon request.
  • Progressive. Times are changing. Gone are the days of dressing up to meet an attorney in a stuffy conference room downtown. We pride ourselves in keeping abreast of the technological tools to make interactions with our clients more convenient. We are more than happy to meet with you over the phone or through a video conference. With office space along the Wasatch front we can meet you in an office closer to your home. We have even made house calls for some clients. We are taking the necessary steps to help you have a delightful and comfortable experience with an attorney.
