  • Regardless of the legal issue facing your business, Christensen & Jensen's business litigation attorneys can assist you.  Our attorneys' efficiency, creativity, and sound judgment allow them to place their clients in advantageous positions regarding business disputes.  And because one of our main focuses at the firm is commercial business litigation, compliance, and trials, our business law attorneys are especially adept at handling all kinds of business disputes from beginning to end.‚Äč


Family Law: Divorce and Adoptions:

  • Family law at its most fundamental level involves the creation and termination of domestic relationships.  Among these relationships are issues involving marriage, separation, divorce, division of assets, child custody, and child support.  However, family law involves other important relationships and/or domestic issues, including, parental rights, adoption, guardianship, and even juvenile law.  Because these issues involve family members, spouses, domestic partners, and/or children, they are often highly charged, both legally and emotionally, and the resolutions produced by these cases can have a lasting impact on the lives of those involved.  As a result, it is critically important to have an attorney that can help guide you through this complex and emotional process, regardless of what side of the issue you are on.

Probate and Trust:

  • Todd has helped clients establish trusts as part of their estate plans to help avoid estate taxes and to accommodate complex family issues arising from second marriages. Special Needs Trusts are also ideal to protect disabled children or other family members who currently, or may eventually, rely on governmental assistance. In some situations, litigation may become necessary to resolve familial disputes. Todd is experienced in this type of litigation.
