Cockayne Law Firm

Personal Injury Attorney

Chris Cockayne is an experience attorney in handling all types of personal injury and motor vehicle accident cases. Many of our clients are referred to us by other attorneys or former clients. They are sent to us because clients and other lawyers know that we deliver on skill, advocacy and service.

Being injured in an accident is tough enough without having to deal with pesky insurance adjusters and other interested parties who may not be the most honest or fair. At Cockayne Law, we understand the complex issues and pressures our clients face. It’s our job to alleviate those pressures, and allow our clients to focus on recovering from their injuries. With Cockayne Law as your advocate, you’ll have a friend in your corner who will fight for what’s right and fair. While life may not seem so great following an accident or injury, the future is bright with Cockayne Law.

How It Started

Personal injury has long been Chris Cockayne’s passion. Chris set his sights on becoming a personal injury and accident attorney even before starting law school in 2005.

His mentor, a personal injury attorney from the city where he grew up in Arizona, began grooming him as an undergraduate. After finishing law school, Chris worked at a large, prestigious law firm in Northern California, where he learned the basics of litigation and legal stratagem. After returning home to Utah, Chris worked with a small local firm, where he honed his skills in personal injury and auto-accident claims.

Chris eventually decided it was time to make his dream a reality by starting his own personal injury law firm. At Cockayne Law, Chris proudly fights for Utah injury and accident victims.
