  • Jeffrey Parker Crabtree

    Bob Christensen has done it all. He has worked on civil cases in Minnesota for over 30 years. Bob has settled big cases, and tried big cases to juries. He has been a mediator and arbitrator, has authored legal articles and papers, and has trained and is certified as a civil trial specialist. He has the highest rating available (“AV”) by the most respected national lawyer rating organization. In my view, what is also important is what kind of person Bob is. If you spend ten minutes with Bob, you will know he is the real deal. He’s patient, he listens, he cares, he instills confidence and trust, and he tells you the truth. If you have a serious case and need serious help, I hope you will call Bob and meet with him. I think you’ll like what you see.
