Very pleased!
We had talked with a few other attorneys before meeting Wade. After we met him and we talked in debth about our case, we just knew that we had found the perfect attorney for us. He was there when we needed him, even if our needs were small at the time. He was reassuring, but made no promises. Best of all, he won our case for us. Not only was Wade a great help, but his staff was fantastic. A very caring group. It sure helped us out duing one of the most stressful times of our lives.

Deportation halted!!!!!
Mr Christiansen and the christiansen law firm,did an absolutely outstanding job on my case.From the first moment my case was presented to the law firm,a lawyer was promptly sent to talk to me whilst i was still in detention. I found the representative both sensitve to my plight and at the same time very proffesional and knowledgeable of my predicatment. The paralegal Anna was excellent,she's just an excellent excellent paralegal,she kept me grounded was very accurate with her information and never missed a beat,was always available to talk to on the phone and believe me when you are in detention it goes a long way. Mr Christiansen was very very straightfoward with me,very experienced and knowledgeable and might i add very very busy,but that's to be expected. He somewhere manages to balance everything out just right.He genuinely cares about his clients,he charges very very reasonable as far as costs are corncerned.What more can i was a blessing for me and family to have being reffered to Mr Christiansen. I readily recommend him to anybody who falls in a predictament.

A Bill 1 Yr Later !!
I paid everything to the court and Christiansen last year during a guardianship case. Now I receive a bill for $400 a year later through email for court fees. The only upside is he worked very quickly.

He misinformed us
Wade was our attorney in 1997-1998. We hired him to complete a "step-parent" adoption. In that process we learned my husband's divorced to his former wife had not been finalized. My husband with the help of Wade immediately filed for divorce (to the ex). We counseled with Wade at that time as of what we - my husband and I needed to do if anything to validate our marriage. Wade said nothing. Stated our marriage would be "retroactive" back to its original date. He then completed the "step parent" adoption. 15 years later and after 20 years of marriage we are learning our marriage was and is void due to the fact we never "married" after that divorce was completed! I called Wade this past week and left 7 messages pleading that he return my call. The last message I left stated if I didn't hear back from him, I would have little choice but to file a complaint. I just needed to know what his reasoning was to advise us not to marry. I was positive once we spoke to him, this would all be cleared up. I had so much faith in him as our attorney and at the time, our Bishop (LDS). His return call left me devastated and in tears. He was extremely rude and unprofessional. He just kept saying, "Go ahead Debbie, FILE YOUR COMPLAINT and I'll answer that and ONLY that!" He said, "Oh now I guess you want FREE LEGAL ADVISE!". No Wade, I want you to tell me why you ruined what was about to be a 20 year marriage celebration! I want you to tell me why my now adult daughter still doesn't have a legal father! And although he wasn't hired to do our 2nd "Step-Parent" adoption a year later, it was still completed under the pretense we were a married couple! If there is a reasonable explanation for this, all you had to do was say it. By your tone, attitude and the fact you hung up on me as I sit there crying tells me you KNOW you gave us bad legal advice! Admitting that would accept that responsibility. We trusted you with our family unit. We trusted your knowledge as a certified attorney. You more than let us down. You've destroyed all that we have worked for.
