JONES WALDOUtah’s most prestigious and pioneering law firm


Providing legal services to the businesses and community organizations that support and grow the state’s economy for over 100 years

For nearly 150 years, Jones Waldo has worked with clients that have enriched the economic, social and cultural climate in Utah. We were there for the transition of Walker Bank to Western Bancorp and then again as Wells Fargo took the reins. We have represented Ballet West, the Utah Food Bank, Utah Symphony/Opera and many other nonprofit organizations. The Salt Lake Tribune has been a client for many years and the firm was instrumental in the formation and growth of Mountain Fuel Supply (now Questar). We were also privileged to have Calvin L. Rampton (three-term Utah governor) with us from 1976 to 2007.


The firm name is changed from Ray, Rawlins, Jones & Henderson to Jones, Waldo, Holbrook & McDonough

As one of Utah’s most prestigious and pioneering law firms our team has grown to include the great leaders of Utah’s legal profession, including Harold R. Waldo, Donald B. Holbrook, and Roger J. McDonough.

Our current roster of attorneys consists of 70 individuals who are passionate about the law and servicing their clients. They are dynamic members of their communities and stalwart contributors to the legal profession. And though many of our attorneys have or will spend the majority of their careers with Jones Waldo, those who have moved on usually do so to serve the public in important ways. Our alumni are legislators, judges, political strategists, academicians and successful business leaders.

CONTINUED SUCCESS1976 through today

In 1976, Calvin Rampton, Utah’s only three-term governor, joins the firm. Our growth continues each decade.

Built on a strong foundation of service and knowledge of Utah’s core industries, the firm continues to evolve through meeting new challenges, finding innovative solutions and advancing legal trends in the state. Our priority is to engage in dynamic and solution-oriented relationships with all of our constituents: clients, attorneys, staff and community.

With three departments in business, real estate and litigation, attorneys at Jones Waldo have expertise to solve complex client needs in nearly every area of business. Jones Waldo has offices in Salt Lake City, Park City, Provo, Lehi, and the Chicago metro area.

It is clear that the firm is an important part of the fabric of our community. We hope to remain so for years to come.
