Steven has been practicing law since 1982. He is admitted to practice in the State of Utah as well as before the Utah Federal District Court and the United States Supreme Court. Steven received his law degree in 1981 from Samford University located in Birmingham, Alabama and his bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Utah in 1977 where he graduated cum laude and was runner up for a departmental award for academic excellence and his participation on a number of departmental committees. Immediately after graduating from law school Steven worked as a prosecutor for two years before going into full-time private practice where he prosecuted a wide variety of criminal cases. Steven also served as a Judge Pro tem for the Third Judicial District Court for a number of years during his early years of practice. Steven has also been active in politics having run for the Utah State Senate having barely lost a close election where he was supported by many influential people in the community. In fact, he was and has been since his candidacy the only candidate for any office that received an open endorsement from the editor of Salt Lake Tribune. Since his candidacy, Steven has been active in supporting candidates that are open to supporting lawmaking that has improved or is designed to improve Utah’s judicial system and he continues to maintain substantial influence in this regard.

Steven’s areas of practice include primarily family law, personal injury, probate, contract law, and criminal law. In the area of family law Steven has represented hundreds of clients in both district and juvenile courts throughout the entire state with great success. Steven’s clients have presented with a broad range of issues from complex custody and financial issues to simple visitation and support issues. Steven’s aggressive approach on behalf of his client’s cases has resulted in a successful track record whether it has been in the trial of such cases or in early resolution through mediation where he has had a high percentage of cases settle, saving his clients thousands of dollars and avoiding his client’s lives continuing in legal limbo for several months.

If you want an attorney who will find the most effective, quickest and least expensive way to get your legal issue resolved, Steven is an attorney you should consult with.

I was thrown into the deep end when it comes to first time interactions with the legal process. I started out confused and over whelmed. But we got Steve Wall recommended to us by a family friend and ever since this whole thing has gone as smooth as could possibly go. This whole firm is professional, personal, and passionate. There has been multiple times Steve has called me after hours to help me with anything and awenser any questions i have. Knowing he’s the type of lawyer to not just do his job but take enough pride and passion to work on cases after buisness hours is very comforting. I hope i never need another defense attorney in my lifetime but if i do i will be calling Wall & Wall.

The best law office I have ever experience.Staff and the Lawyers are top notch, With the little bit of a difficult case that they had with me, they kept it on track and was able to get a good result that is very honorable and approved by me, and they kept my interest in sight while trying to make sure everything was honorable and just between me and my ex-spouse.Will recommend this law firm to anyone that is in need of help with any family issue cases.

I can’t say enough good things about Nathan! I was in the care of handling my brothers divorce as his power of attorney as he was incarcerated for accusation from his ex. Before being incarcerated my brother paid over $30k to another attorney who had milked him out for over two years. I called Nathan on a recommendation from another law office. Nathan answered the phone after the second ring. Expressed he was in a meeting and would call me back after. Which he did! (Unlike many others) This is the level of communication and professional Nathan carried the entire way through the case. He was calm understanding and sympathetic to my brother’s situation as well as equally ticked off as we were, for what my brothers ex had done to him on false allegations. That being said Nathan handled his case like a pro. He was able to get the case resolved in about 6 months. Even with my brother being incarcerated he was able get him his fair share of assets and came to agreement on the first mediation attempt. (Where the other attorney could never get my brothers ex to the table). Nathan was a god send. He did what l believe no other attorney could do given the nature of the accusations and the stubbornness of my brothers ex. He even did it while not burning through his retainer kept us up to date every step of the way. He made the process almost too easy. He would send out updates of everything going on and simply say I’ve got everything handled. I’ll let you know if I need anything from you. (Which he didn’t need much from me). I wish I could give more than 5 stars because Nathan deserves it. Hands down the best attorney out there. Never once did I feel misunderstood or taken advantage of. Thank you Nathan truly you are a magician in your field!

Nate Wall and Morgan James are the best duo around. I had bad legal counsel in my 2019 divorce, and for years trying to get custody of my kids. I spoke with Nate in 2022 and in 2024 I walked away from trial with what I wanted and more. Nate is the only attorney I’ll use going forward, and I know there will be more to come with my ex.

Cory Wall and Frances are absolutely amazing. I had a complex case and they took their time, were so through and handled my case with such care. Frances was always there to answer any questions and responded so promptly. They truly listen and care and support you the whole way. I could not have asked for a better law firm! I would absolutely recommend them. They also had very affordable rates. Thank you Wall and Wall and Frances!

When it came to trial, Steve drove home the overall theme of what we were shooting for and sold the sentiment with great appeal. He’s been doing this a long time, and his experience shows. I highly recommend Mr. Wall.

As a family law mediator of many years I have had the opportunity to work with each attorney at Wall & Wall Legal Solutions. To a person, each has demonstrated the highest level of relevant legal knowledge, ethics and client relations. I further attest to their skill in negotiations where the ability to understand, analyze and counsel their client as to strengths and weaknesses on all relevant issues was at hand; further, that they counsel their clients with what they need to know, not necessarily what the client wants to hear.I have mediated many difficult and complex cases with Wall & Wall and have always been impressed with their professionalism and competence. The same goes with their staff and paralegals. As a team they combine to offer the highest level of representation one could hope for. I strongly recommend each attorney of Wall & Wall for your needs.

Steven wall, what can I say. Great guy and an excellent attorney. Steven does not settle like the majority of attorney's do looking to just make the quick buck. Wall and wall fights for their clients. Steven did a great job and Frances was right there answering any questions when Steven was in court. The receptionist was also very helpful and nice. If I had to drop anything off or send a message to Steven or frances, I would hear back from them quickly cause of her. If anyone needs an attorney, wall and wall is your answer. There's a reason that they are rated the best in Utah because they are. I recommend them to everyone.

We were able to meet with Steven Wall about setting up a trust, and found out that it is not necessary at this time due to types and values of assets. That an attorney is willing to say "you don't need it" and thus give up potential income says a lot about his ethics. I would definitely refer others to this law firm.

Cannot say enough good about Greg Wall and his skills as a family attorney. He literally saved me in my custody case when a half dozen other attorneys could not. He gets the job done! He’s available to talk without the hassle of multiple gatekeepers and listens and hears you as a client, validating your concerns and opinion. He’s honest, knowledgeable and a great attorney to work with.

Greg Wall has been extremely supportive as well as professional while helping me throughout my divorce proceedings. He demonstrates a deep understanding of family law and an unwavering commitment to protecting my rights and interests, as well as what is best for my children. He guided me through each step, explaining the legal jargon and intricacies in a way that was easy to understand. I felt like a priority, not just another case.

I've never had need to seek the help of an attorney in my life with respect to divorce until I met with Greg. He happened to be the best family law attorney for me at that time. He was nice, kind, unassuming and attentive when we first met till now. He explained everything to me to the best of his ability and in terms I could easily understand. Greg was always very responsive whenever I had questions and he represented me very well during our mediation and subsequent follow up hearings. I of course miss that he's semi-retired and working on part time basis but continues to look after and supervise the representation of my case effectively.If you're looking for a knowledgeable family law attorney at a reasonable price, check out my dear friend Greg.

I hired Cory initially for an adoption case in an extremely long (5+ years) complicated Dcfs case. Long story short, he turned it around and got my parental rights reinstated instead and closed my case quickly! For anyone that doesn’t know, this NEVER happens! He went above and beyond and literally made the impossible happen! We had all the odds stacked against us but he worked well with myself as well as the team. He fought tooth and nail to put our family back together and succeeded in roughly 8 months and I had been fighting 4+ years prior. I had several attorneys before him and got nowhere. We couldn’t be happier and I am forever grateful for his hard work and couldn’t thank him enough! If ur looking for a go getter in a family case I highly highly recommend hiring Cory Wall!
