A. Daniel SpencerOwner and Managing Attorney
Dan has been practicing family law for five years. In that time, he has helped clients through divorces, custody disputes, adoptions, and everything in between. He has handled some extremely difficult cases, representing parents, grandparents, and even children as a private guardian ad litem.
Prior to law school, Dan worked for a major financial services company helping people build portfolios and manage their assets. This skill set has served him well in working with divorce cases involving investments, property division, and support calculations.
In 2013, Dan co-founded Open Legal Services to provide access to the legal system for low-to middle income Utahans who would otherwise have nowhere else to turn for legal help. The firm made national headlines and served as a model for access to justice throughout the world.
In 2018, Dan left the nonprofit sector and founded Spencer Family Law, where he works to provide clients with smart, effective solutions to their legal needs.
