Jeff Teichert’s estate and business asset protection practice focuses on helping business owners enhance their lives today and secure their futures tomorrow. He excels in guiding clients through the confusing maze of financial, legal, and business decisions to ensure the well-being of their families and businesses. His more than twenty years of legal expertise includes protection of assets from litigation, business counsel services, asset protection strategies, and values-based planning.
Jeff earned his Juris Doctorate at Brigham Young University’s J. Reuben Clark Law School and served as a law clerk to the Honorable F. Michael Kruse, Chief Justice of American Samoa. He completed a post-doctoral LLM degree “with highest honors” at The George Washington University Law School. Jeff was also Senior Editor of the BYU Journal of Public Law.
Jeff has filed three briefs in the United States Supreme Court and argued numerous cases in federal and state courts. In 2006 he was a heavily endorsed candidate for the Washington Court of Appeals. In November 2017, Jeff visited China as part of the State of Utah Salt Lake City Region Trade Delegation sponsored by the World Sky International Group.
During his extensive litigation career, Jeff saw firsthand many of the pitfalls and disasters created by poor planning (or no planning) and came to believe the old adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It is better for the client to hire an attorney to help avoid problems than to hire an attorney to spend many thousands of dollars to minimize the damage when you are already in trouble.
Jeff seeks to promote peace and harmony in families and among business partners, and to help people pass on their hard-earned wealth and cherished values to their loved ones, and to become a trusted long-term advisor to his clients and their businesses.
Jeff is married to the beautiful and talented Cathy Butler Teichert and father to Errol, Henry, Tucker and Forest.
