UPL Notice

UPL Notice
On August 2, 2004, pursuant to the Utah State Bar's complaint, the Third District Court entered a civil injunction against Michael S. Salveson for engaging in the unauthorized practice of law. The permanent injunction recites, in part, that Mr. Salveson, who is not licensed to practice law in the State of Utah, "represented another in the presentation of a legal claim," that his representation "included legal opinions and legal conclusions concerning the liability of the product manufacturer," and that a "document titled 'Personal Injury Works' constitutes the presentation of a legal claim in a representative capacity of another and that the form of the document connotes that [Salveson] is engaged in the work of an attorney." The injunction also recites that "the use of the title of 'Esq.' in connection with the presentation of the personal injury claims for another connotes that [Salveson] is an attorney as does the use of the term 'client' in the written presentation made."
