Roland Christensen is a passionate trial lawyer. His primary areas of practice include catastrophic injury, including serious truck accidents.
Attending school at Brigham Young University, Roland earned a Bachelor of Science in Family Studies. From there he went on to attend the J. Reuben Clark Law School, where he served as the lead editor for the BYU Law Review. He also won the school’s negotiation competition and had the highest scoring briefs in both his legal and advanced appellate brief writing class. Roland graduated magna cum laude (with great distinction) and was one of the top 20 students in his class.
Before even beginning his practicing as an attorney, Roland made great strides in the legal realm. During his time as a legal writing teaching assistant, he created a 150-page manual that is now used in first-year writing classes at BYU Law School. He then went on to write an analysis of tort reform, clearing up common myths and misinterpretations on the subject. This paper, Behind the Curtain of Tort Reform, is now published in the BYU Law Review.
Roland has worked with numerous legal professionals to hone his skills. While still in law school, he interned with the Southern District of Texas for the Honorable Lee H. Rosenthal and worked various roles for a number of large Houston law firms. He also held a prestigious position working in the Criminal Appeals Division of the Utah Attorney General.
Roland invested significant time in the Texas legal field while in law school through various roles and internships. Not long after graduation, he began working with Arnold & Itkin as a law clerk. Roland is now an aggressive advocate for the firm’s clients as a zealous trial attorney. He has a clear passion for helping individuals and families affected by injury and tirelessly works to give clients the best legal representation possible.
