Michelle serves as the senior legal assistant to trial attorneys David Christensen and Sarah Stempky Kime.  She is responsible for the team’s overall case management, keeping the files moving smoothly through the course of litigation, including scheduling everything from client meetings to court hearings. She also helps to prepare and file court documents including Motions, Orders, Discovery, and Complaints.

“What I love most about working at Christensen Law is we care about our clients and work well as a team to make sure we’re doing the very best to ensure our clients are happy with the results at the end. We try to take a very stressful situation and be a support system for the people we represent throughout the entire process.”
