Our History and Overview.
_
Christensen & Jensen has specialized in litigation and trial advocacy for more than sixty years throughout Utah and surrounding states. We consider our founders, Ray R. Christensen and Jay E. Jensen, to be the gold standard for trial attorneys. With hundreds of civil trials to their credit, both achieved legendary careers and numerous honors, including Utah's Distinguished Lawyer of the Year Award.

They epitomize integrity, dignity, professionalism, and civility. Christensen & Jensen's present members follow in their footsteps. Christensen & Jensen is built on a philosophy of providing quality, cost effective, professional service to our clients and community with distinction.

Christensen & Jensen represents both plaintiffs and defendants in most areas of civil litigation. While handling complicated matters for some of the largest corporations in the country, we also represent individuals and families who have been significantly harmed and are seeking to recover damages.

This mixed practice allows Christensen & Jensen's attorneys to understand from divergent perspectives, and the resulting broad experience provides insight and networks that benefit our clients.

Christensen & Jensen's attorneys have successfully focused on diverse practice areas that cover most of the civil litigation spectrum, including appeals; commercial litigation; construction; government defense; insurance bad faith and coverage; mediation and arbitration; plaintiff personal injury; products liability; real estate, land use, and water law; tort defense; and transportation law.
