I agree with the other reviews. She is a reputable attorney that will get the job done. However, I feel she is also aggressive with her clients. An issue I had with her is that she committed to do work that was charged to me that I did not authorize and specifically told her I would not carry the expense of that work prior to her committing to doing the work. She intimidated me to do what she said and threatened to withdraw as my attorney if I did not agree to pay for the fees and move forward to exactly what she dictated. When the case came to final steps just prior to the court date, she further intimidated me to settle. I felt like she judged me and was not open to really understanding my side of the case and spent my money without any regard. Also, I found information that was hidden from the case several years later and tried to bring it to her attention. She disregarded any merit to the finding and jumped to negative assumptions without allowing the opportunity to truly discuss the finding.
Christy is aggressive yet ethical. I'm glad she is on my side. I would highly recommend her to anyone pursuing custody or divorce. She does not make unrealistic promises, and helps you to understand the pros and cons of each possible strategy. It is obvious that she loves and is fully invested in her work and your best outcome.
In my profession I have come in contact with attorneys in a number of areas of law and worked with them in a clients interest. I therefore feel better able to judge than most and in my experience Christy is a cut above and someone I have complete faith in. She has worked with a couple of close friends on their behalf in their divorces and I know that she has gotten a number of referrals from them as well as me. If you are looking an attorney with principles, knowledge, experience and expertise then get an appointment and meet her.
Christy has been representing me in my divorce for the past year and a half. She is reasonably priced, works to keep costs down by eliminating uneccary charges, and provided clear statements of account. She has kept me up to date on the status of my increasingly complicated divorce and has served as a go between for my ex and I. She responds to calls with 48 hours, faster if it's an emergency (I've had her return calls within 30 minutes or so when there has been a major development). She also has a great team of lawyers in the firm who work with her when necessary. When my case became complicated by medical issues with my ex, she had one of her peers call me and discuss my case to walk me through an area she wasn't as familiar with. She doesn't put up with any BS, either from other lawyers or from her clients. She tells it like it is and is very clear about expectations and is realistic about what to expect. She also constantly encourages me to take the high road when dealing with my annoying ex - an ETHICAL lawyer - can you believe it!?!?I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!
