The legal skills and dedication of the personal injury and medical malpractice attorneys at the Salt Lake City, Utah law firm of Dewsnup King Olsen Worel Havas have been recognized by the lawyers' peers and various legal ratings groups.

Three of the named shareholders of DKOW, Edward B. Havas, Colin P. King and Michael A. Worel, have been selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America in handling personal injury matters. For many years, our firm has been awarded an "AV" rating, the highest possible, by a prestigious national law firm directory, Martindale-Hubbell. Many personal injury and medical malpractice attorneys within our Salt Lake City firm also hold Martindale's "AV" rating, based on peer review of their practice. Members of our firm have been admitted to select trial attorney advocacy groups, including the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and the American Inns of Court.

In addition, Dewsnup King Olsen Worel Havas continually strives to maintain a high level of civic involvement and to act in the public arena to protect its clients and the community from efforts to reduce access to the courts or to limit the right to jury trials. Our law firm has been an active leader in the Utah Association for Justice (UAJ) for many years. Several of our firm members currently serve on that organization's Board of Governors; four of our members have been President of that organization. Members of the firm actively work with the Utah legislature to propose, draft and support new laws and modifications to existing laws to improve access to the courts and to protect and secure our constitutional rights. We support and promote the ideals and goals of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and of the UAJ.
