I pride myself in being very concientious to my clients' needs and concerns. While I have primarily represented landlords and other creditors in civil litigation, I am adaptable to most any legal practice area in which my clients have a need. I am currently licensed to practice law in Texas, but I expect my Oklahoma bar application, which was submitted in September, to be approved within the next couple of months.
In terms of my personal background, I grew up in Tulsa and Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, spent four years in the United States Navy serving aboard submarines, graduated from Oklahoma State University with honors, and graduated from the University of Oklahoma, College of Law with distinction, where I served as Assistant Articles’ Editor for the Oklahoma Law Review. I am an avid runner, and (when I have the chance) I enjoy traveling, particularly in the American West and to Europe. My wife is a special education language arts teacher and special education coordinator, also serving as a Special Olympics coach and girls' soccer coach. Our daughter is a freshman at Oklahoma State University, where she is a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, and is majoring in health education and promotion.
In addition to the mentioned areas of practice I also do:
- Appeals before the Appelate Division,
- Appear in Family Court
And I am also:
- An Attorney for the Child (Law Guardian)
- Licensed to Appear in Federal Court
- Licensed to Appear in Tax Court
Finally, I was admitted in Wisconsin in 2007 Pro Hoc Vice for a case involving the application of the Hague Convention against the abduction of children between Venezuela and the United States of America.

Sheryl Alyce Traum
1901 Harrison St Suite 1100, Oakland
A passion for justice drives me to fight hard for my clients' rights. Over the 25 years I have been practicing law, I have developed skills for handling many types of cases, especially cases involving personal injury (auto, premises liability and products liabilitiy), real estate (contracts, neighbor disputes, nuisances, boundary issues, disabiltiy access, etc.), construction (including design, installation, soils, mold and "indoor air quality" issues) and insurance. I have handled cases in both State and Federal courts throughout California, achieving hundreds of favorable settlements for clients, and when needed, successfully trying cases to verdict.
Justice is based on truth, and truth is found by investigation and discovery. When serving as an advocate, I pride myself with skillfully discovering the facts and evidence that will prove up my clients' position in the case, weaken my opponents' case, and help resolve the case. I carefully research the law applicable to the dispute, and consider the effect of the law on the evidence related to the case. I help my clients understand the range of possible outcomes under the law and facts applicale to their case, preparing them to ultimately make an informed decision about whether to resolve the case at mediation, or take a case to trial or arbitration.
When serving as a mediator, I listen carefully to the statements and arguments made by both sides. I find that parties often start with "extreme" positions based on an assumption that if the matter goes to trial, they will get everything they want. When speaking with litigants, I look for the kernels of information which might help build "common ground" on which to reach a compromise agreement. I also help people realize potential weaknesses in their position, and possible unanticipated or unfavorable results which might occur if the matter was tried to a jury or judge. I find that litigants often have not fully considered the "downside" which could occur if a judge or jury does not fully agree with their point of view. By giving litigants a "neutral evalution" and pointing out possible weak points in their case, I help litigants understand how a mediated resolution which they have the opportunity to craft with the other side is usually preferable to a result which will be decided by a judge or jury over whom they have no control.
As an arbitrator, I conscientiously maintain a respectful, neutral demeanor so that parties feel comfortable that I am giving due consideration to all the arguments and evidence submitted by all sides before making a decision. I work hard to assure that the atmosphere of the arbitration remains professional, discouraging bickering between parties and counsel which can lead to unnecessary stress and agitation. Once the evidence is in, I promptly render an award based on my findings after considering all the evidence and arguments.
I am as passionate about life as I am about getting great results for my clients.
In the time when I am not working hard for my clients, I enjoy being active, including biking, tennis, kayaking, hiking with my dogs and almost any outdoor activity. I also enjoy art, spending many quiet hours drawing, painting and writing, mostly for the enjoyment of my family and friends.
I find that taking this quiet time gives me time to reflect even more about the needs of my clients and I often incorporate "inspirations" from my personal time into the strategies I use in my clients' cases.

Kenneth L Reich
8 E Broadway Suite 410, Salt Lake City
Every Utah business faces legal issues ranging from lawsuits to estate planning to choosing your successor to figuring out how to make the transition to a publicly traded corporation. Although there is no single attorney who is able to handle all legal issues that arise, I have over seventeen years' experience helping my clients navigate legal waters by assembling the right legal expertise. I have a large stable of legal partners at Snow Christensen & Martineau to help as well as legal, business, and expert contacts in numerous fields. My job is to assemble the right knowledge and expertise to handle any legal problems that arise.
I have litigated various business-related claims on behalf of Utah businesses in state and federal court. I work closely with clients to help relieve them of the burden that legal issues often bring. I am committed to thoroughly understanding my clients’ issues, listening closely to their objectives and needs, and vigorously protecting their interests in litigation and transactional matters. I am passionate about helping my clients solve problems, build their business, avoid litigation, and resolve disputes when they arise.
On a more personal level, my interests vary depending on the time of year and my mood. Sometimes I feel like the guy in the Bittersweet Symphony music video: "I'm a million different people from one day to the next...." On any given day you can find me obsessing about the following (in no particular order):
Skateboarding. I grew up on a skateboard and still do my best to stay upright on four wheels. Ollies, nollies, and grinds-- no problem. Kickflips, heelflips, impossibles, and hardflips-- not so much. I can still hit the half-pipe and park but I don't dare do much anymore-- I value my knees, etc., too much. I also get out the longboard for sliding on the streets around my house.
Modern Art. There is something about modern or contemporary art that speaks to me at a level that I do not understand. I can get lost in modern art galleries. I wander and drink deeply. It calms my soul. Years after seeing it in a museum, this one still reaches a place I can't find: "Cats in Bag | Bags in River". Same with really big Jackson Pollock paintings. As with any art, it's always best to see it in person.
Entrepreneurship. I always thought this meant going out on your own and struggling in the business wilderness. It can be but not necessarily. For me it's being in control of what I do everyday and making a success of it (hopefully). It is the permanent challenge and applies to every aspect of life including every interest I have.
Snowboarding. Burton Performers were the big deal when I was a young teenager. The ski resorts would not allow snowboards on the lifts (for good reason at the time) so we would hike up through the powder just out of bounds. Once snowboards ditched the powder fins and added metal edges, resorts saw the light and let us on the hardpack. I'm still trying my hand at rails (the fat ones) and the half-pipe. I still worry about getting my teeth knocked out on a thin rail but what the heck.
Pies. Thanksgiving would be boring without pies, lots of pies. It's all about the crust. Anyone can peel and core an apple but the crust is where the flavor, texture, and addiction comes from. My favorite is blueberry.
Quilting. I grew up with my mom having a quilt in the living room on a frame that we all took turns tying (the simple tie, not hand-quilting). These were simple affairs and not the old-school hand-quilted ones you see at the county fair. In the winter I will often spend nights at the sewing machine making intricate quilt squares. It's an art form that I can get into. I've only finished one (log cabin squares) and have another one almost there (star squares). It still needs the border, backing, machine quilting, and binding.
Running. This is more of a summer sport for me. I'm not a committed runner, more like a fair-weather friend. I've run a few marathons. The most recent was the St. George Marathon with my 16 year-old daughter who nearly beat me. During the winter, it's more snowboarding, basketball, weights, and treadmill. I'll pick it up again in the spring.
If I can help you with anything legal related, please feel free to contact me. If I cannot do it for you, I have partners who most likely can. If they cannot help you, I have local friends and associates who most likely can. If they cannot help you, usually because of the specialized nature of the issue or the geographic location of your issue, my firm is associated with a large worldwide network of attorneys who absolutely can. I look forward to hearing from you.
I am originally from Brazil and therefore fluent in Portuguese. I am also fluent in French.
Falo Portugues. Je parle Français.
My diverse practice leverages my experience in state and federal litigation and appellate matters in a multitude of areas, including but not limited to, real estate transactions, business matters, banking, consumer rights, contract disputes, complex commercial matters, local government law, and employment disputes.
I understand and value the cultural differences that exist when people from different countries, or even different regions within those countries, come together to negotiate and effectuate a business transaction. I use this understanding and knowledge to my clients’ advantage by strategizing the most efficient and cost effective solution to a specific issue.

My wife Melanie Leary and I went to law School together and have practiced together since 1994. We represent people and small businesses in a variety of matters with an emphasis on real estate, contracts, and business disputes. We do not handle criminal, family law, personal injury or probate matters. Over the years, we have handled hundreds of cases, over 100 trials, and more than 30 appeals.
Legal fees in Seattle have become insane, and it can be difficult to find representation on terms that make sense. When we formed ourown firm in 2013, we decided to leave the rat race and find a way to find balance in our lives. Our two sons were in grade and middle school, and we were missing out on too much of their lives. We reduced our hourly rates from $350 to $250, and they have not changed. We cut our case loads to recover our evenings and weekends, and we decided to only take cases we believed in. To our amazement, we discovered that we can have pleasant lives representing people we care about and still having a life.
We believe that attorneys should be part of the solution, not part of the problem. To a degree, legal matters largely have become vicious fights where nothing less than the destruction of the opponent will suffice. As we see it, too many lawyers encourage this attitude, which just drives up the expense and unhappiness for everyone. We think that our job is to help clients identify and achieve an elegant outcome as efficiently and painlessly as possible. Sometimes that can be achieved with negotiation and agreement, and other times it requires a sustained fight through trial. We will do whatever is necessary, but we do not start fights or make unreasonable arguments.
Our approach to the practice of law was summed up very well by Ralph Waldo Emerson. "The good lawyer is not the man who has an eye to every side and angle of contingency,and qualifies all his qualifications, but who throws himself on your part so heartily, that he can get you out of a scrape."
