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.
