SALT LAKE CITY (May 14, 2021) – Governor Spencer J. Cox has appointed Jeffry Ross to the bench of the Eighth District Juvenile Court.

“Jeffry’s wealth of experience in family law cases and his defense work in juvenile courts make him an ideal candidate for this role,” said Governor Cox. “I thank him for his willingness to serve the public on the bank.”

Ross currently serves as an attorney at Stowell, Crayk & Bown, LLC, serving in the areas of child welfare, juvenile delinquency, criminal defense, immigration law, and family law, a position he has held since May 2012. He also has a contract as a defense contractor for the Uintah County’s Eighth District Juvenile Court. Prior to his current position, he worked as a lawyer with Alverson, Taylor, Mortensen & Sanders in Las Vegas.

Ross received his JD with Honors from the University of Utah’s SJ Quinney College of Law and graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in law and constitutional studies with a Spanish minor.

“I am grateful and humble to be appointed to the eighth ward juvenile court,” said Ross. “I look forward to serving families and children in our community in this capacity.”

The governor’s nominations must be approved by the Utah Senate.
