Please Welcome Five New Utah Licensed Paralegal Practitioners

by Greg Wayment, J.

A year ago, we published an article welcoming seven new LPPs. We are now pleased to announce an additional five Legal Licensed Practitioners, bringing the total to date to eighteen. Please welcome:

Susan Astle, LPP – Family Law

Susan Astle is a Licensed Paralegal Practitioner for the state of Utah, licensed in Family Law.

She currently works for the law office of McConkie Hales. Prior to joining the legal field, Susan enjoyed teaching at Canyon View in Alpine School District. She is actively committed to improving her community. She has served on the Millcreek Township Council and the East Mill Creek Community Council and energetically campaigned for Millcreek City’s successful incorporation in 2016. She was elected to the school board for two terms at Canyon Rim Academy, a state charter school. Along with her civic involvement, Susan volunteers at her children’s schools and assists regularly with high school swimming meets and USA Swimming meets.

Susan has an interest in providing legal resources, especially as it relates to helping families. By working in family law, and actively engaging with her community, Susan understands the need for accessible legal services as families navigate divorce and custody matters. As an LPP, Susan has an opportunity to help others by expanding legal services to those who may otherwise have limited access for various reasons. Susan is excited to be involved in Utah’s legal community as an LPP.
