“It is important to us as attorneys and members of the communities in which we live in Utah, Idaho, Montana and Nevada to ensure our clients and others who need assistance have a reliable source of information to make the transition through these times a little easier,” Shawn Ferrin, chairperson of the board and firm shareholder, said in a statement.
