Allison B. Christensen

Partner

Summary

Allison Christensen concentrates her practice in litigation. She embraces the opportunities that litigation presents to resolve disputes among people who are unable to do so themselves. Patient, dedicated and resourceful, Allison works to give a voice to people whose interests are not being considered and, especially in the probate litigation area, often allows her to ensure that decedents' plans are protected after they pass away, providing both comfort and security for her clients.

Allison provides strategic counseling and legal advice on a variety of matters, including commercial litigation, real estate and construction contracts, business transactions, business torts, business disputes, will and trust contests, disputed estate and trust administrations, guardianship litigation and appeals. Uniquely, Allison also has experience in securities, sports and intellectual property law, which allows her to “issue-spot” and collaborate with other attorneys as needed, to provide customized counsel for her clients and to help them realize their goals.
