Utah & Washington Personal injury lawyer Ken Bills practices in the areas of mass tort and personal injury law. He is licensed as an injury lawyer and accident lawyer in both Utah and Washington.Ken knows if you or a loved one has been harmed or injured because of negligence on the part of a company, you may benefit from being part of a mass tort claim.
