My professional focus is helping clients solve complicated problems. Individuals and corporations hire me to investigate, assess, advise and represent them on significant and potentially devastating matters, often in crisis or on an emergency basis.
I handle a broad range of issues, including business disputes, corporate negotiations, commercial litigation, product liability suits, professional, administrative and regulatory crises, personal injury, wrongful death, and insurance matters, among others. I have been recognized for my work in mediation, arbitration, trial and court hearings. My work has now expanded beyond Utah in order to serve regional and national clients.
I appreciate the recognition of my peers, including the highest rating, AV, from Martindale-Hubbell; being honored as one of the "Top 25" lawyers in Salt Lake City, and as one of the "Top 100" and "Top 75" lawyers in our five state region (Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming), and named one of Utah's top lawyers in commercial litigation and product liability cases, and included in the national Business Edition for litigation (Super Lawyers/Thomson Reuters); as well as "Legal Elite" by Utah Business magazine (since 2005). In 2012, Utah Business also recognized me as one of the top mediators in the state.
I have been afforded opportunities to serve and lead. I am president of the Western States Bar Conference and just finished serving as chair of the Personal Injury Section of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society. I also serve on two Utah Supreme Court advisory committees, an ABA standing committee, and several other industry, professional, nonprofit, university and community boards and committees. I feel privileged to have recently served as president of the Utah State Bar, as well as chair of the nonprofit Utah Council on Conflict Resolution.
Christensen & Jensen is talented and devoted to clients. Since 1949 we have successfully served clients throughout Utah and other states. We have a rich tradition of trial and appellate work, complex cases and dispute resolution. It is an honor to be a shareholder at this firm.
