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 assisted clients who need representation for transactional and litigation matters.  In addition to providing advice regarding the purchase and sale of residential real estate, he has represented parties in commercial cases involving business contracts, employment law, insurance, real estate, securities, torts, and administrative appeals.  In addition, Mr. Kjar has developed specialties in REPC law and water law.

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 joining Parr Brown, Mr. Kjar worked as a high school teacher and taught mathematics, physics, and personal finance.  His time spent as a teacher honed his ability to think quickly and analytically when faced with difficult situations, but still keep all the best interests of his clients (back then, the students) in mind.  He seeks to always counsel and assist his clients in the same way by advocating on their behalf.

Mr. Kjar is a skilled potter, an excellent handyman, and is fluent in Spanish.
