My "Go-To" Law Firm
Four years ago, I was very fortunate to have met Mr. Steve Christensen and the law firm of Steve Christensen and Young Associates, when circumstances forced me to file a chapter 13 business bankruptcy and a chapter 7 personal bankruptcy, (with another local law firm where I was treated like a number among hundreds of clients). If these circumstances were not horrible enough, our home was foreclosed upon, under surveillance by a goon in the mortgage industry, and sold at auction by a highly powerful and well-known bank in the industry. This was a very desperate, emotional, and dire time for me. I was completely alone, distraught, and had no one to help me with these catastrophic and life changing events. I needed professional legal counsel and representation, right away! My personal experience with the law firm of Steve Christensen and Young Associates, as I was supported and guided through these horrible events, has been exceptional and miraculous! Mr. Steve Christensen, though he is very modest about this, successfully took on the bank who is a giant, that foreclosed and sold the home. The sale was astonishingly revoked! This enabled us to acquire our equity in the home! It was enough to help me to re-establish my life. Steve Christensen and Young Associates, handled the entire process (and all my nagging fears and many questions) flawlessly. I truly credit them for my success in re-establishing my life and my finances. Steve Christensen and Young Associates, has since become like family to me and I, to them. They are "my life long, go to choice, when I find myself in need of legal representation". They’re highly knowledge, experienced, and true professionals in every aspect.
