Dan got our issue resolved
3+ years ago I found a mistake on our mortgage statement and no matter how many calls I made, I could not get it fixed, in fact they made it worse. The company started making threats about default so we contacted Christiansen Law and ended up filing in Federal District Court. We later reached a settlement that we are satisfied with. Three months ago they signed an agreement, but needed this long to finally clear up the accounting and correct the credit reporting. Dan contacted them almost every day during that time. Stay out of court, it is stressful and a few times I felt so beat up that Dan had to talk me out of walking away (I'm glad he did). Thanks to Dan, we made it through and the loan is now fixed.

I am a real estate professional and I have used Christensen Law Office 2-3 times for some out-of-the-ordinary litigation and potential litigation issues. I really like that they are intensely focused on my interest, so I know I'm not going to rack up needless legal fees. I highly recommend this law firm!

Calm, solid and dependable
We contracted Dan to represent us in a legal case against a general contractor who greatly took advantage of us financially and did damage to our home. From start to finish, I felt in very capable hands with Dan and trusted in his ability to bring about a resolution in our favor, which was the case. I highly recommend his legal services.

Dan Eaton was an outstanding lawyer. He was straight forward, professional and respectful throughout the entire process. I felt comfortable talking to him and trusted him completely. He clearly explained the details of my case with me from start to finish. As my court date approached, he contacted me to explain again what to expect and to answer any final questions I had. I had briefly "shopped" around for lawyers prior to my initial meeting with Dan, but once I sat a talked to him, I knew that my search was over and wrote the retainer check before I left his office. Should the need arise, I would definitely use Dan Eaton in the future for any legal matters. I have already referred him to others.

Mr. Eaton has been amazing
Mr. Eaton has handled several matters for me over the last two years. He has been strong, confident, fearless and unwavering in his representation of me. Yet compassionate, kind and considerate to me. He protected me and worked so hard for what was best for me. I wouldn't want anyone else in my corner. Knowing he had my back truly let me sleep at night. I am so thankful for everything he has done.
