Andrew Stoddard spent most of his childhood in Sandy, Utah and has not strayed too far from there. He currently lives in Midvale with his wife and four boys. Andrew graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and then attended Brigham Young University for law school. During law school, Andrew was an extern for the Utah Crime Victims Legal Clinic and the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center, where he started a case that eventually resulted in a finding of innocence.
After passing the Utah Bar Exam, he continued to work at the Utah Crime Victims Legal Clinic as a victim advocate and staff attorney, working on cases involving a wide variety of crimes. Then he was hired as a prosecutor at Murray City, where he spent the next ten years of his career. There, Andrew handled hundreds of bench and jury trials on cases ranging from traffic tickets and DUI’s to shoplifting and domestic violence. He never shied away from a hard case. His experience working with victims at the Legal Clinic and his familiarity with traffic cases from prosecuting created an interest in personal injury work, which led him to where he is today.
Andrew spends his free time building Legos with his boys, cheering for the University of Utah and the Buffalo Bills, and doing policy work at the Utah Legislature.
