John Christiansen

About Me

John's focus is somewhat different to the philosophy of many other attorneys in that he believes that the client's interests come first. John has long considered the client's needs to be at the center of his practice. 


 


He currently represents a high number of clients in disability, injury and financial insolvency proceedings in front of Utah State Courts, Federal Courts, and Utah Administrative Courts. 


 


He is also an adjunct professor of paralegal studies at Eagle Gate College and has been a special guest lecturer at Utah Valley University.
