We are one of the only companies in Utah to offer legal services a la carte. This means that instead of paying for the whole meal (i.e., hiring an expensive attorney), you choose the services you want and only pay for what you need. Your Utah Legal Coach can help you with filing and reviewing your own legal documents through the Online Court Assistance Program (OCAP) and works on an hourly basis without upfront retainers.
Why Choose Utah Legal Coach?
Meet the mastermind behind Utah Legal Coach: Angie Allen.
Angie was one of the first four Licensed Paralegal Practitioners (LPP) in Utah. She was the first LPP to be licensed in debt collection. She brings almost 20 years of experience as a paralegal with knowledge of multiple practice areas including family law, criminal law, and bankruptcy.
Angie is heavily involved in many projects at the state level for access to justice and consumer advocacy. She’s passionate about the LPP program because it allows more Utahns to get the legal help they need.
Currently, she serves as a member of the LPP Steering Committee. This committee works to develop education criteria, licensing requirements and rules of professional conduct for LPPs.
Angie also serves on the Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on the Rules of Professional Conduct, and as a member of the Rules of Professional Conduct Fee Referral Sub-Committee.
She is also the first LPP in Utah to be involved in an application with Utah’s Office of Legal Services Innovation, which oversees the creation of new and innovative business models for legal services and businesses to increase access to justice.
Angie is a Professional Paralegal licensed with NALS – this designation reflects a proficiency in the area of legal knowledge and the ability to perform legal tasks, as well as the commitment to a higher standard of conduct and professionalism.
On top of that, Angie is involved in charitable work with Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Angie has dealt with some scary situations being a type 1 diabetic for 25 years and loves helping others who are facing the same challenges.
Angie handles all of this while taking care of two school-aged children, 11-year-old Grace and 8-year-old Preston. Her husband is an air ambulance pilot and is on assignment in Nevada for two weeks each month.
In her free time, Angie is notoriously clumsy. But she loves doing anything exciting including traveling, hiking, and long-boarding.
She wants to help other busy moms like herself in dealing with legal issues and helping them navigate the overwhelming legal system.
