About Me

I have been practicing family law with my father and other Hofheimer Family Law Firm attorneys since 1999. I was a single mother for most of my son's childhood, so I have a first-hand understanding of the challenges that many of my clients face.


When I am not busy advocating for my clients, I like to bodysurf, watch Supercross and equestrian sports, spend time with my family, and listen to Ani Difranco.

  • Charles R. Hofheimer

    I endorse this lawyer's work.As Impressive in the negotiations of a separation agreement as she is when arguing a case in the courtroom,Kristen's clients love her, she is always extremely well prepared and she has few peers in a contested custody or divorce case. She is Mensa smart and knows how to apply her brainpower inside as well as outside the courtroom. Many have challenged her, few have prevailed.
