Gulfshore Business announced that Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP partner Allison Bentley Christensen has been selected as a 40-under-40 honoree for 2018.
Since 2003, Gulfshore Business has recognized the rising stars who have distinguished themselves in their professions and communities through their contributions to the Gulf Coast area’s economic, charitable and civic well-being. They hail from a variety of occupations, including education, law, medical, real estate, public service and the arts, as well as entrepreneurship. The 40-under-40 program is a highly selective annual program, and the 15th class was chosen from a field of more than 160 nominations. The complete list can be viewed on Gulfshore Business.
Christensen concentrates her practice in litigation and embraces the opportunities that litigation presents to resolve disputes among people who are unable to do so themselves. Patient, dedicated and resourceful, Christensen 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. Her attention to detail is exemplary, and her follow-up is impeccable. Despite all that is on her plate, her professionalism and sincere desire to attend to the needs of each of her clients is what led her to become a partner at the firm this past January.
Christensen is a member of Hahn Loeser & Park’s Women’s Leadership Initiative that is designed to support programming to develop leadership skills and create unique business development opportunities for women attorneys. The initiative also works in the community to promote the advancement of women by engaging in thoughtful dialogue, sponsoring, hosting or attending women’s events and providing overall support to women in their professional endeavors.
Christensen is actively involved in the Naples community, including the Humane Society Naples Pawfessionals Young Executives, the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, and she serves on the Board of Directors for the Collier County Women’s Bar Association. She was also recently named a Rising Star® by Florida Super Lawyers®.
