ALexander J. Helfer

Alexander J. Helfer has worked on divorce and family law cases since 2003. He takes great pride in making his clients feel at ease during a very difficult time in their lives. In large part, Alex accomplishes this by explaining complex legal issues to his clients without using complex legal terms. His success as an attorney is due to his competence and work ethic. Alex provides detailed attention to his clients and always provides a realistic evaluation of everyone’s case. He will not take unnecessary actions that will only drive up his client’s legal fees. His guidance, keen attention to detail, and legal skills ensures that his clients will obtain the best possible outcome.

As a result of his many years of experience, Alex possesses a detailed understanding of how Utah family law courts operate. He has long ties with the state of Utah, and possesses an understanding of its laws and practices. This is especially important because of the peculiarities of Utah family law. Alex has appeared in court hundreds of times to argue divorce and family law issues on behalf of his clients.

In his free time Alex enjoys outdoor activities with his wife and their two boys such as skiing, hiking, and playing pickleball.
