Bio |

Mr. Kjar is an attorney with a broad base of experience and can quickly adapt his skills to serve clients in whatever capacity they need.  He has developed his transactional skills by advising companies and Boards of Directors in their day-to-day legal needs, including reviewing and negotiating contracts, drafting governance documents, and providing legal and strategic business advice.  He has also assisted clients in other more specialized areas, such as REPC and Water Law work.  And he has also developed significant litigation skills, both behind the judicial bench as a law clerk, and in the courtroom as a litigator.  His litigation experience ranges from small claims trials, to Utah Supreme court cases, to numerous Federal Court cases.

Mr. Kjar received his Juris Doctor Order of the Coif, with Highest Honors, in 2012 from the S.J. Quinney College of Law where he was Executive Managing Editor of the Utah Law Review.  During law school, he garnered valuable experience during several internships at the U.S. District Court, District of Utah, one for the Honorable Judge Clark Waddoups and one for the Honorable Judge Dee Benson.  After law school, he expanded on his court-room experience and honed his legal skills during two year-long clerkships:  first for the Honorable Judge Tena Campbell at the U.S. District Court, District of Utah, and second for the Honorable Judge Scott M. Matheson, Jr., at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mr. Kjar spent time as a high school Math teacher, which honed his ability to think quickly and analytically when faced with complex situations, but still keep the best interests of those he served (back then his students) in mind.  He seeks to always counsel and assist his current clients with the same degree of insight, expertise, and consideration. In addition to caring for his family, Mr. Kjar enjoys working as an amateur potter and all-around handyman.
