Austin Hepworth, Believer
You can change the world, for good
Austin is married and is the proud father of seven children. Austin was born and raised in Magna, Utah where he graduated as the co-Valedictorian of Cyprus High School in 2001. After graduating high school, Austin attended the University of Utah, where he graduated summa cum laude as the Outstanding Scholar in Business Administration with a minor in Mandarin Chinese. From there, Austin attended Ave Maria School of Law, again graduating summa cum laude and first in his class. Austin was chosen by his classmates to speak at graduation, and was awarded the St. Thomas More award for excellence in character and academics.
Austin began working at the age of 12 at a local greenhouse, as well as mowing lawns and other odd jobs for neighbors. At 18, he started working for a framing crew, and later left that job to serve as a missionary for the LDS Church in Taiwan, where he learned Mandarin Chinese. After returning from Taiwan and some more time framing, Austin began working at a silver refinery where he worked full-time while attending the University of Utah full-time.
During law school, Austin clerked for a judge in Michigan, worked in a city attorney’s office, was the research assistant to the Dean, and worked for a small firm in Florida. Since attending law school, Austin has worked in a variety of areas of law, including constitutional, business, real estate, finance, estate planning, adoption, international tax, prenuptials, creditor/debtor, corporate governance, contracts, and appeals. Austin has been involved in cases across the country ranging from Rhode Island to Hawaii, and is admitted to four Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal.
Austin is a Believer who feels strongly that the world’s best days are still ahead. He values connecting and working with others who also believe and are willing to work to build good.
