Blood, sweat and tears are cornerstones to building greatness, but often it is a leap of faith that creates the opportunity. Jill L. Coil has followed this blueprint in creating a practice that has a bright future.
“I’m not just an attorney,” Coil stated firmly. “I’m also a wife, mother, colleague, community volunteer, employer, leader and activist.”
These qualities and her leap of faith is what drove her to the place where she is today – the owner of CoilLaw LLC, a firm specializing in family law, and one of the few female attorneys in Utah to lead her own firm.
“I had worked for multiple successful firms,” she explained. “However, I was always looking for an opportunity that allowed my greatest strengths to flour- ish. I felt my passion and my drive were not allowed to reach their full potential. I was extremely busy but always looking for that path that would allow me to grow and thrive.
“I believe women really can do it all,” she continued. “We don’t have to be held by any limitations just because we’re moms, we have to pick our children up from school, or take our kids to the doc- tor when they’re sick.”
In late 2014, Coil decided to leave her previous position in order to launch her own practice. She was six months pregnant with her third child at the time and her husband was fin- ishing medical school. Even though she knew she was taking a big risk by leaving the safety and stability of a big firm, she still felt that starting her own business was the right choice to reach her goals.
“I took that leap of faith knowing that yes, there was risk, but that I could de- pend on myself,” Coil said.
The New Firm
CoilLaw, LLC focuses primarily on family law but she offers criminal law ser- vices to clients who find themselves fac- ing protective order violations, domestic violence and other similar situations.

“I wanted to focus my practice on one specific area so that people who hired my firm would know that they are get- ting an attorney who is very knowledge- able and experienced in that type of law,” she explained.
Coil feels fortunate that her clients fol- lowed her to her new venture.
“They all came with me when I opened my doors,” she said. “That showed a lot of trust in me, which was flattering and a boost to my confidence. It’s been an amazing journey.”
Her Journey and Passion
Of course, it’s no wonder that her clients have placed so much trust in her. Coil’s
dreams of being an attorney began when she was just a child. While her friends played with Barbie dolls, Coil just wanted to play lawyer or judge. An internship in high school at the Third District Court only confirmed her career choice.
As an attorney now, her passion for arguing is rivaled only by her passion for treating her clients well and secur- ing the best possible outcomes for their situations.
“One of the best parts of my career so far has been the relationships I’ve formed with my clients. You meet peo- ple and they’re in the most troubling times of their lives, and it’s really satis-
