A partner at the law office of Mortensen & Milne in Salt Lake City, Utah, Lance L. Milne exclusively focuses his practice on catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death claims. While a large portion of his practice is dedicated to claims arising from accidents in the oil and gas industries like fires, explosions, drilling accidents and aviation mishaps, he has successfully assisted those negatively impacted by motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, workplace accidents and other preventable tragedies.

Working with Mr. Mortensen, Mr. Milne has obtained many multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts in nationally known, high-profile cases that were closely followed throughout the nation as well as in Utah, including the record-setting $25 million product liability wrongful death jury verdict in Utah. In honor of his success, as well as his impeccable professionalism and service, Mr. Milne has earned memberships in both the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forums.

Early in his legal career, Mr. Milne worked as an insurance defense attorney, so he has invaluable insights into the industry and the tactics insurance companies use to minimize or deny claims. Armed with this knowledge, he can devise the most effective strategies possible to help his clients recover the maximum amount of compensation they deserve.

A 2004 graduate of Weber State University, Mr. Milne obtained his Juris Doctor from the Texas Tech University School of Law in 2007. A board of regents scholar in law school, he served as vice chair of the Board of Barristers and received honors for his exceptional academic achievements. He holds his license to practice in Utah, Texas and New Mexico, and he is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah and the U.S. District Courts for the Western and Eastern Districts of Texas, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court.

An integral member of his legal community, Mr. Milne is a member of the Utah Association for Justice, where he serves on its board of governors. He is also actively involved with the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association, among his other professional affiliations. He has also received consistent recognition from his peers as being among the top trial attorneys in his region, as well as numerous testimonials and referrals from his satisfied clients.
