Law career spans 43 years

There used to be a sign hanging in Judge Clint S. Judkins’ now empty office that read, “All I ever really wanted was to be a cowboy.”

Judkins, who has just ended a 43-year career in law, grew up on a farm west of Layton. He went to Utah State University on a wrestling scholarship and started his studies in animal husbandry — intent on being that cowboy.

However, when he did the math, Judkins said he decided it would cost a lot of money to start up his own ranch, and perhaps he would be better off pursuing a career that would provide the financial means for him to do what he loved.

After he graduated from USU in pre-law, Judkins went to the University to Utah to obtain his law degree. He also switched from wrestling to riding saddle broncs — a profession he continued through 1977.

When he passed the bar, Judkins opened up a private law firm in Tremonton.

“I never have been good at working for other people,” he said.

From there, he settled into a career as an attorney. Some of his first clients were other rodeo cowboys he met along the way.
