You definitely won’t want to miss Christensen & Hymas’ own Russ Hymas! That’s right, the man who puts the Hymas after the ampersand, a partner here at the Utah’s premiere accident firm, will be a guest speaker at the Summit, leading a break-out session on cycling laws in Utah. He will also present the new laws that have changed since this year’s legislative session.
