Brian Tanner

Brian has dedicated his career to a combined focus on both immigration and family law. He enjoys giving individual attention to his clients, building relationships with them while creating solutions for complex legal needs. Since his early experience as a judicial intern at the Immigration Court while in law school, Brian has maintained the favor of both immigration and family judges while upholding a professional reputation as a caring, knowledgeable and creative advocate for his clients.

After serving a two-year church service mission in Hawaii, where he learned to speak Marshallese, Brian has since learned Spanish through his professional and personal relationships with the Latino community. His language skills, empathy for people of all backgrounds, and in-depth knowledge of the family and immigration legal systems have contributed to the respectability and trustworthiness he is known for within the legal community and among those he represents. Because of this, his clients regularly refer their friends and family members to him, since they know that with him, the legal needs of their loved ones will be met with thorough attention.

Brian earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics from Brigham Young University in 2007. He later went on to receive his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law in 2011. He is licensed with the Utah State Bar, and has received professional recognition for his pro bono service at both Immigration and Family Law clinics within the Salt Lake community.

Brian is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, where he has served in a leadership position for the Utah Chapter. In his free time, Brian enjoys discovering new adventures with his wife Jen, being a human jungle gym to his four young kids, taking his dogs on lots of walks, reading, and playing the ukulele.
