Outstanding divorce lawyer
I hired Rod Jensen on the recommendation of a friend of mine who had also gone through a divorce. He made a difficult process a lot better by handling the issues in a professional, calm manner. My ex's lawyer was pushing to go to trial (which would have made her a ton of money at our expense), but Rod knew that would be a waste of money in our case. He worked hard for us to settle the case with mediation. His associate is also very professional and pleasant to work with, and very mindful of the details of our case--she caught some important errors in the other lawyer's paperwork! If you are going through a separation or divorce, I cannot recommend Rod highly enough.

An Attorney who really cares
The moment I met with Rod, I knew I had found an attorney who cared. I had no idea about anything, as divorce was a word that was not in my vocabulary. But Rod patiently guided me through it all. I highly recommend him to anyone who must travel the road of divorce especially when children are involved.

An Answered Prayer
I needed an attorney that could take on a high conflict individual and dreadfully unjust situation. I interviewed and consulted with many attorneys, based on research and recommendations. It was not until I consulted with Rod, that I knew instantly I had found the right attorney to protect me from what could have been a devastating outcome. Many attorneys would have shied away from the challenges and intricacies that accompanied my case, but Rod used it as fuel to refine his noteworthy expertise and better the lives of all those he will serve in the future. Rod is trustworthy, relatable, compassionate, knowledgable, and honest to a fault. Rod treated my case with the utmost care and concern, and always found time to provide direction and support despite his tireless schedule. Rod is highly respected by his colleagues and community, is a great communicator, and will go the extra mile to ensure an excellent outcome. Rod is far more than a great attorney, he is a great person with great integrity. I would highly recommend Rod Jensen for any case.

Knowledgeable and compassionate
I was referred to Rod after issues with my first lawyer. Upon meeting Rod for the first time it was obvious that he was, and should have been, the first choice for me. My divorce was very difficult and long and I relied on Rod's experience and reputation in the proceedings. I found Rod to be understanding, compassionate, and very experienced. The advice and representation from Rod was truly first rate. In different proceedings that occurred during my divorce Rod was well known and very respected. He was able to obtain the best resolution possible in my situation. I continue to use Rod and recommend him.

Rod Jensen is a Knowledgeable Superior Attorney
It has been my pleasure to work with Rodney (Rod) Jensen several times in the past 19 years, with my most recent experience in early December 2019. He is the right combination of knowledge, compassion and integrity. Rod is very knowledgeable on the law necessary to resolve my issues, conscientious about my time as his client and therefore his charges. He and his staff were professional and empathetic. I highly recommend Mr. Jensen without reservation.

Could not have asked for a better attorney as a single mom!
Let me begin by saying, Rod has been my lawyer for the last 16 months. I'm a single mom and first visited with Rod while I was 7 months pregnant. When my little one was two weeks old, I was served custody papers from my sons dad. It was emotional to say the least. Rod remained so calm and told me, "It's okay, kid. Please don't worry. I'll let you know if you ever have anything to worry about. I promise." Although I can't promise I never did worry, it was truthfully much easier to manage with Rod as my attorney. Throughout this whole process, Rod has been fantastic to work with. He's always given me a clear idea of what to expect and what he thinks are the different scenarios that may play out. I've appreciated the fact that he's always given me various options/outcomes and then let me choose the course that I want to go. I've felt very involved in my case and that he's always been on top of where things are at! One thing I've learned is that Rod has been doing this for a long time (my entire life!) and really knows what he's talking about. He's seen it all! Even though my case was likely very uncomplicated (even though I felt it was) in comparison to other cases where there may be divorce and dissolution of assets, Rod alllllways listened intently and made me feel like I was genuinely very important. To know he placed so much focus on my case, with my kid thats the center of my life, meant a lot to me. He worked really hard to keep my case from going to trial and when opposing counsel would go low, he'd go high. He'd rest his responses on facts and lean into those so that opposing counsel couldn't ever get him worked up. Would highly recommend him to other families and will definitely use him in the future if my situation warrants more assistance. Thank you for everything, Rod!!

Compassionate and superior attorney
With the daunting task of hiring a divorce lawyer, I knew I would need someone with the right combination of knowledge, compassion and integrity. I interviewed many attorneys and found Mr. Jensen’s strong background in family law, sincere character and direct communication to be far superior to the others. He and his staff were professional, committed, and empathetic. I am grateful for his service and recommend Mr. Jensen without reservation.

24+ years and a divorce - what now?
2 years ago I had the worst Christmas ever. I was despondent knowing that my marriage of 24+ years with 7 children had fallen into a state of shipwreck. Open communication in my marriage was over and people were picking sides. I wanted to stay married and work it out but that was not to be. I had known Rod for 9 years. He saw me after Christmas 2 years ago and noticed I didn't seem myself. I explained and Rod said "come to my office next week and let's just talk-no charge". After hiring him as my divorce attorney then here came the barrage of false accusations from the other side and Rod said "just stick with the facts and it will all work out-try to leave the emotions out of it". The worst part was not knowing the outcome of the court appearance and Rod kept telling me I had done everything I could and he would defend me. 24 years of marriage and a lot of issues. Rod was strong and fought for me and my 3 kids that chose to stay with me. I couldn't have done this without Rod's counsel and courtroom professionalism. He performed last minute negotiations at the courthouse with the opposing attorney and divorce Judge on my behalf and I kept my house! You need an attorney that actually cares. Thanks Rod!

Could not get any better than this!
I was referred to Mr. Jensen by a good friend. First meeting i knew that he was the one i wanted to represent me. I hired him, paid the retainer and he and his staff, Carol (who is amazing also) kept in close contact, fixed everything that i needed with my divorce case. I had a sub standard attorney previously and Mr. Jensen was amazing, got the job done and got what i wanted all along to move back to where we belonged. I wish i had Mr. Jensen for my attorney throughout this painful process, it could have been a much easier journey having him to start with. His compassion, willingness to listen and guidance made this an easier process all along. I would trust him with any legal issues that would arise. Good Job Mr. Jensen!

KJ
I hired this attorney for divorce proceedings. The divorce was amicable and nothing was contested at all. In fact, my husband and I split the attorney fees. We were incredibly disappointed with the service provided by this attorney. I had to correct multiple mistakes in his paperwork, which was clearly just copied and pasted from other clients because our children’s names were incorrect, and the type of vehicles we owned were incorrect. Finally, at one point, I was cc’d in an email that included another clients financial information. My (now ex) husband contacted me multiple times asking how we ever even found this attorney things were so bad. He was actually a recommendation to us from a trusted friend who stated that she couldn’t actually personally recommend him, but that a friend of hers had used him. I would not recommend this attorney at all based on our personal experience.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I had Mr. Jensen on a case as opposing counsel. A lot of family law attorneys are not very nice and hence cause their clients to have to pay out a lot of money due to cases not being able to settle. I found Mr. Jensen to be a gentlemen to work with/against while at the same time advocating for his client."
