Strong Advocacy When You Need It Most
Christensen Law fights for people who have sustained injuries due to the negligence of another. Personal injury law applies to many different types of injuries. If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident of some kind in Las Vegas, Nevada, it is important to discuss your legal options and your right to compensation with an experienced attorney. The Attorneys of Christensen Law have over a century of combined experience and may be able to help. Our firm offers a free initial case evaluation to discuss your particular case. We can review the circumstances of your accident as well as the extent of your injuries and any property damage in order to determine what options you may have.

Vehicular accidents can involve car accidents, trucking accidents, pedestrian accidents and accidents caused by drunk drivers.

We identify the liable parties, stand up for our clients’ rights against the insurance companies and seek fair compensation for their injuries.
Our firm provides compassionate legal representation to people whose lives have been altered by the wrongful death of a loved one.

Our representation of those who have sustained catastrophic injuries also includes helping brain injury and spinal cord injury victims.
Premises liability cases involve a property owner’s duty to adequately secure and maintain that property.

Casino Injuries–The crowded and rowdy arenas of a casino are a breeding ground for personal injury and accidents.

Insurance bad faith/insurance mishandling
Our firm is well-known for the results we are able to obtain on behalf of our clients who have been mistreated by their insurance providers. Contact us to speak to an experienced personal injury attorney today. In many cases, accidents result from the negligence of another person. According to Nevada Personal Injury Law, a person can be found negligent if he or she did not exercise proper caution, or if his or her actions can be considered careless. Personal injury law protects people who have sustained injuries due to third party negligence by allowing the injured party to seek monetary compensation for things such as medical bills, property damage, lost income, and pain and suffering. An attorney can evaluate your case to determine the value of your claim and can then pursue this in full through negotiations with the insurance company or by way of litigation in civil court.
Many people have a difficult time confronting issues such as what will happen after their death. Dying without a will or trust means that the state of Nevada will have the authority to divide your property according to intestate succession laws. Proper planning now can bring you peace of mind that your estate will be distributed the way you want upon your death. When you are ready to make your wishes for your legacy known, contact our Las Vegas living trusts and wills lawyer. We help you plan for the proper division of your property. We offer a variety of estate planning options, from the simple to the sophisticated. Contact Christensen Law today for a consultation.
It is difficult when a relative or someone who was close you dies (called the “decedent”). When that happens, however, it is generally time to get a probate attorney involved. A probate attorney can help make sure that the decedent’s property is legally distributed to the right people. In Nevada, we have specific statutes that govern the probate process. These statutes generally require court involvement. The word “probate” means “to test.” The court “probates” (or tests) any will the decedent left and helps make sure that only the proper people receive the decedent’s property. It is usually best to have a probate attorney to help guide you through the process and to appear in court for you. The type of probate varies with the size of the decadent’s estate. An estate with less than $20,000.00 in assets and no real estate can be distributed without court involvement by filing an affidavit of entitlement. An estate with less than $100,000.00 in assets can qualify for a “set aside” without formal administration. Set asides can generally be completed relatively quickly and inexpensively. An estate with more than $100,000.00 in assets generally requires a full probate. Set asides are relatively quick and easy. A larger estate generally goes through the full probate process and can take a few months or, if disputed or especially complex, a few years. Most probates are completed in a matter of months. Our probate attorneys can help you handle a probate as quickly and efficiently as possible. Sometimes, people close to the decedent disagree about how the decedent’s assets should be distributed. When there is a legitimate dispute, it is time to get a probate litigator involved. Our probate litigators can investigate the issues, establish a litigation strategy and go to court to fight for you. Contact us today.
