Craig did an excellent job helping us navigate through the legal aspects of our lawsuit against a company that had malfunctioning equipment. His professionalism really was a great asset to have when dealing with other attorneys representing the companies we pursued in my lawsuit. His knowledge and experience in this area were exceptional. I would definitely recommend Craig to anyone seeking an experienced attorney who has a genuine concern when representing them.Duane Appleton
Attorney Christensen was hired as representation for me during the most difficult time of my life to date. He was consistently supportive, brilliantly tactful, and calm. He saw that I had worth and assured me that every last ounce of effort was given to my case. I would recommend him to my own family without hesitation!Katie Appleton
Craig is a lawyer that speaks with you in clear terms, often and honestly. He makes himself available and accessible at all times. Updates and advice are given at critical times and he really does work for you! He was more than thorough, going beyond my expectations to make sure all bases are covered and options explored! But probably the thing I admired most about Craig representing my daughter and I was that he really does care! Through all of the ups and downs of our case, we had a strong feeling that he was a concerned and caring person, who put us first and fought hard to uncover and research all options. Thank you, Craig!Kurt Appleton
Craig worked with me on a claim against an insurance company for an automobile accident. It was a lengthy process, but he kept me informed of the progress and next steps in the case as we went. He gave me realistic expectations and presented all of the options available to me. His experience left little room for surprises throughout the discovery, mediation and trial prep phases. His paralegal, Carla was excellent to work with as well. In the end, we came to a fair settlement offer. Overall, it was a very good experience with an experienced, professional, and knowledgeable lawyer. Although I hope I won’t need to, I would certainly use Craig as a lawyer again and would recommend him to my friends.Anonymous Appleton
