Mr. Worthen is a member of Parsons Behle & Latimer’s litigation, trials, and appeals team and well as the firm’s water law practice group. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Worthen served as law clerk to three distinguished judges at three different levels of courts: the Honorable Dee Benson of the United States District Court for the District of Utah, Associate Chief Justice Thomas R. Lee of the Utah Supreme Court and the Honorable N. Randy Smith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. During these clerkships, Mr. Worthen gained an invaluable understanding of the thought processes of judges in both trial and appellate courts and at the state and federal levels which he now leverages to the benefit of his clients. Mr. Worthen also gained invaluable experience while spending two years in private practice at a respected water law based law firm in Salt Lake City.

During law school, Mr. Worthen served as the symposium editor of the Brigham Young University Law Review and won the school’s third-year legal writing competition.
