To the Jones Waldo Community:
After long and thoughtful consideration, the shareholders of
Jones, Waldo, Holbrook & McDonough, P.C., recently determined
to cease operations as a law firm effective June 30, 2022.
This decision was not made lightly. It was a decision made
in consideration of the changing legal market and how we, as a
group and individually, could best serve our clients’ interests
and preserve our legacy.
Jones Waldo traces its roots to 1875, when it was founded by
Joseph Lafayette Rawlins in Salt Lake City, Utah. When Mr. Rawlins
opened his law practice, we suspect he did not anticipate that his
legacy would continue for as long as it has. Nevertheless,
over the course of 147 years, Jones Waldo has grown with our
community developing deep roots, friendships, and client
relationships. Jones Waldo persisted – in various forms – through
multiple wars, economic booms and busts, social change, and even
multiple pandemics. And through all of these events that
shaped our State and our community, we have been pleased to serve
While Jones Waldo will not be providing legal services moving
forward, we are proud of our contributions and look forward to a
continued relationship with our community, our clients, and our
colleagues as we move forward providing high quality legal
services from different platforms. If you have questions
about how this development may impact you, please contact Jerome
Romero at email@example.com.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of Jones Waldo in any
way for your loyalty and friendship. We all look forward to
continuing our relationships in some form or another.
All our best,
