Prior to his formal education, Logan spent eight years in the auto industry. He started as a salesman at the age of 18, and was awarded salesman of the month multiple times, amongst a staff of over 40 competing salesmen.
He’s negotiated thousands of deals, and was quickly promoted to a position where he oversaw several salesmen and was responsible for ‘closing’ deals. Logan then went out on his own and started an auto auction. Although he was very successful in a sales type field, Logan felt like his sales skills would be better utilized in negotiations with prosecutors, other opposing counsel, and in the court room.
Logan received his Bachelor's of Science degree from the University of Utah, with a major in Philosophy and a minor in Applied Ethics.
He also attained his Juris Doctor from the University of Utah, S. J. Quinney College of Law. He earned the William H. Leary Scholar award multiple times and graduated with Honors. He is a current member of the Utah State Bar and certified to practice law in Utah State Courts and the federal United States District Court, Central District Court of Utah.
During his formal education in philosophy and the law, Logan extensively studied argumentation theory (debate and negotiation). He learned how conclusions can be reached through logical reasoning and developed a keen eye for identifying logical fallacies, deductive and inductive arguments, and faulty premises.
Logan’s background in sales, and education in Philosophy and the Law, make him a formidable attorney.
He has been married for over a decade to his wife Kajsa D. Collins and they have three wonderful kids together.
