Voter Information for President-elect

Candidate for President-Elect: Heather Thuet

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your vote for Pres-Elect of the Utah State Bar. I am humbled to receive the nomination and your support.  Since 2005, I have volunteered in various capacities within the Bar.  I have been fortunate to serve as the Chair of the Litigation Section, the largest section in our Bar.  This is my second term serving as a Bar Commissioner in the Third Division and it has been an honor to be an elected representative the past four years.  My intent is to continue to raise the Bar.

By way of background, I was born and raised in Salt Lake City.  I attended Skyline High and obtained a bachelor of science in business from the University of Utah.  Thereafter, I received my Juris Doctorate from the University of Utah, graduating Order of the Coif.  As a shareholder of Christensen & Jensen, I chair my firm’s Real Estate practice group.  My practice spans the areas of medical malpractice (especially aesthetic), commercial litigation, construction defect, insurance bad faith, and catastrophic personal injury.  For the past ten years, I have served as a Judge Pro Tem in the Salt Lake Justice Court.

When not practicing law, my passion is real estate.  As a real estate broker, I own my own boutique real estate company, Endurance Real Estate.  I love helping investors, clients, and colleagues secure their future by buying and selling property.  I am also a Pilates instructor and enjoy the outdoors.

As your representative, I will continue to serve as an important link between you, the public, the legislature, and our Courts.  As you know, our Bar is facing significant challenges.  I plan to embrace these challenges and the relationships built over the years to ensure our Bar has a positive future.

I am grateful for your ongoing encouragement and support. I value your friendship and insight.  Together, we advance our profession.

Thank you,

Heather L. Thuet
