Nathan Christensen grew up in the beautiful small town of Fillmore, Utah, where he spent as much time as possible playing in the mountains. After he turned 18 and graduated from high school, he left Fillmore and spent two years living and working in various cities in Honduras, where he became fluent in Spanish and developed a love for the people of Latin America. This experience changed his life. Upon returning to the United States, he attended Brigham Young University, where he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations with a minor in Latin American Studies. During his studies, he also obtained a pilot’s license.
Nathan has been given many amazing opportunities because of his international experience. For three years he worked as an advanced Spanish instructor, teaching Spanish to volunteers assigned to work in various Latin American countries as well as in Spain. In 2002, because he is also an avid skier, he was chosen to be a gate judge for numerous ski and snowboard events for the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
In June 2002, he married his wife Tiffani, a woman from Texas, which meant he would be spending the rest of his life in Texas whether he knew it or not. In 2006, Nathan and Tiffani moved to Lubbock, Texas where he attended law school at The Texas Tech University School of Law. In his second year, he was selected to be a member of the Jessup International Moot Court team representing Texas Tech in a competition focused on International Law. In 2007, he had a career-defining moment when he spent the summer studying international law in Guanajuato, Mexico and was able to work as an extern with an established Mexican Law Firm. This experience made him interested in practicing U.S. immigration law.
After graduating from law school in only two-and-a-half years, Nathan worked for a law firm in both Lubbock and Dallas, Texas dealing exclusively in immigration law. After less than a year, he became the managing attorney for the Dallas office and two years later, he was named partner. Working as the firm’s sole immigration court attorney for over three years, Nathan became familiar with all of the immigration judges in the Dallas Immigration Court and is comfortable and effective in any type of removal case. In addition, it was his job to attend every immigration interview with USCIS in Irving. This gave him experience and knowledge on all types of immigration cases and a good understanding of how the immigration officers in the Dallas USCIS field office work.
Eventually, Nathan decided to open his own law firm that focuses exclusively on immigration law. That is how Nathan Christensen P.C. was started. Nathan’s goal is to ensure that his clients get the best representation possible at very affordable prices.
Nathan and Tiffani currently live in the DFW area and have three amazing children, two boys and a girl.
