John Heath was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He received his BA from the University of Utah and his Juris Doctor from Ohio Northern University. While attending law school, John spent a semester abroad in Cairo, Egypt, (through Seton Hall University) where he studied Islamic Law.
John has worked as an attorney in both a private and public interest practices. During his last year of law school, he had the opportunity to participate in an internship at Western Ohio Legal Services in Lima, Ohio where he was able to assist in the representation of clients who were involved in family law and other consumer cases.
John’s first job as an attorney was with Utah Legal Services in Ogden, Utah. While in this position, he split time between representing clients who had been the victims of domestic violence in divorce, paternity and protective order cases and clients who were being evicted from their section 8 and rural development subsidized housing. Subsequently, John was hired to practice with Clifford V. Dunn PC, a small law firm in St. George, Utah where John represented clients in family law and general litigation (including small claims) cases. From this firm, John moved to Lexington Law Firm.
John has been the Directing Attorney of Lexington Law Firm since 2004. The firm focuses the majority of its practice and representation of its clients in the area of consumer credit report repair. The firm also practices to a smaller degree in the areas of family law (including divorce, paternity and protective orders), criminal law (including juvenile criminal offenses in juvenile court) general consumer litigation (the firm has had a few cases where it has represented consumers that have been the victims of defective design and construction in relation to their homes) and some collection defense on behalf of consumer debtors. The firm also represents some clients on a pro bono basis.
John has served as an attorney mentor through the Utah Bar Attorney Mentorship Program (where he has mentored new attorneys coming into practice in Utah). John is admitted to the practice of law in the following states: Utah, Colorado, Washington D. C., Georgia, Texas, and New York.
