I met Kristen when I was first opening my own practice. She was very helpful giving me advise and encouragement to start my own practice. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about helping women take care of their estate planning needs. I am happy to endorse.

Ok, so I know I'm biased since I'm Kristen's husband and a fellow lawyer. However, that said, I'd say my relationship to her gives me an insightful glance at the care and compassion she brings to the table with all of her clients. She recently defended a woman in a guardianship matter whom she did not believe need a guardian. She visited with the client in her home several times and took great care in preparing her case to present to the judge. She had a positive outcome and her client was thrilled. If there's anything bad I can say about Kristen, it's that she oftentimes takes her cases too personally--but that of course is what clients love about her! I highly recommend Kristen for any Florida woman's Wills, Trusts, Estates or Guardianship matters.
