I hired James Christensen (Jim) in March of 2016 to resolve an ongoing situation I had with two other attorneys. My matter involved some ethics issues, a civil lawsuit involving a $250,000 insurance settlement and disputes over legal fees. After speaking with various law firms, I was fortunate enough to be referred to Jim.
I was impressed by Jim for multiple reasons. He was very knowledgeable about the laws pertaining to my circumstances and had a sense of the current legal trends in Vegas. He was not intimidated by my case like other attorneys I consulted.
Jim didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear instead he told me what I needed to know. He explained alternative approaches and realistic outcomes. He provided practical advice about what would be in my best interest even though this strategy meant a smaller fee for him.
Jim was diplomatically strong during negotiations yet was able to foster cooperation with the other attorneys involved. Strong interpersonal skills enabled Jim to work with extremely varied personalities and obtain a favorable outcome for me. His relationships in the legal community also helped him to resolve most issues outside of the court room.
On a personal note, Jim was patient with my frequent questions and at times, my nervousness. Jim empathized with my frustration and I could tell he was committed to helping me. My case had been lingering unresolved since 2014 and Jim got me a dismissal as quickly as he could.
I was pleased with the resolution and my portion of the settlement. I respect Jim as an attorney and a person. I am very grateful for the service he provided me. I would recommend attorney James Christensen to my family, friends, and business associates.
