Appeals:

Christensen & Jensen’s appellate attorneys have enjoyed high rates of success in the Utah appellate courts, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. Because our appellate attorneys are also trial lawyers, they are uniquely positioned to evaluate and handle a case from beginning to end. Some firms may only handle trials or appeals, which can oftentimes blunt the sight of the attorneys involved. Christensen & Jensen prides itself on its ability to see a case from all perspectives, whether at the trial court level, the court of appeals level, or the supreme court level. https://www.chrisjen.com/Practice-Appeals
