Kristine is one of the very rare, shining examples of the sort of consummately professional, caring, and thoughtful attorneys that very sadly, are uncharacteristic of Probate and Family Law.
While unwittingly engaged in an exceedingly atavistic and hostile post-divorce and custody situation with an uncooperative and unrelenting ex-spouse, Kristine was able to use her superior negotiation powers to calm the waters and create mutual discourse. (It is important to note that four attorneys prior had failed to achieve similar success.)
Kristine has gone out of her way at every point to clearly communicate and keep me informed. She has also persistently provided the insight needed to see "around the corners" of our Napoleonic Massachusetts Probate System - which, as any Mass. Father can attest, seems more like a trip through The Looking Glass [Tim Burton version] rather than Civil Logic 101.
Throughout all of this, Kristine has stood steadfastly by, shielding me - her client - from the worse of the Byzantine brutality, and has helped my ex-spouse and myself to eek - albeit somewhat grudgingly - towards eventual closure.
I highly recommend Kristine as an excellent and thorough Family Attorney and hope to continue my relationship with her for some time to come.
"Kristine Ann Cummings is one of the most committed attorneys I have worked with to date; she is a very hard worker and extremely good at keeping me (the client) informed. Kristine was amazingly thorough and creative in her search for cases relevant to my own. I found Kristine very capable of keeping me focused on each step of the process which I considered to be quite daunting. Though Kristine is empathic, her ability to keep the broader perspective in focus for me was extremely helpful. Kristine was a very calming and empowering presence as I went through the legal process that involved very personal aspects of my life. I find Kristine to be that rare combination of kind, hard working and of unquestionable integrity. I would highly recommend Kristine, and I do believe one would be fortunate to engage her services."
Recommendation from a former wife represented by Kristine in an action to modify her former husband's child support payments and to set aside a portion of his inheritance for payment of future college expenses.
