Kristin gave me hope when I thought there was none. She helped me to obtain temporary custody of my grandsons. She is very knowledgeable in her field and truly cares about her clients.

My husband and I hired Kristen Marks to help us set up a Guardianship for our son who is intellectually disabled, high functioning autistic. He was approaching the age of majority and we knew we needed to be appointed as Limited Guardians. As Limited Guardians we can still act on our son's behalf in areas of life that are beyond his abilities. Kristen's fees were very reasonable, and she guided us through the process with kindness and expertise. We were very pleased with her and her staff. We highly recommend her.

Kristen is an excellent lawyer. She was highly recommended by a friend when we needed a probate lawyer for our Mother's estate. She handled our unique probation case with attention to detail and provided explanations when we didn't understand the legal process. Kristen is an honorable person and truly cares about her clients. We would recommend her services plus we would use her services again should the need arise.

Kristen excelled in all of the traits mentioned above. She was highly organized and was able to present information that the "lay person" could understand. She was also able to recoup money for payment of services not performed from a former attorney.
I consider her rates very fair and her services top notch.

Kristen is very personable and explained the PROs and CONS of our estate planning matters completely so that we were very comfortable with the process.

There are a few attorneys in this world that absolutely love what they do and Kristen is one of those amazing people. Knowledgeable, professional, responsive, persistent, wise and discerning. She handled my trust work with perfection and helped me understand how the different life scenarios would play out so there was clarity when we were done. My lIttle extra questions were researched and good solutions were found and implemented. Her staff are exemplary and the signing “ceremony” was like a celebration of a job well done. I HIGHLY recommend Kristen to many of my associates as we all need to make sure this part of our life is in order and it was a pleasant experience with Kristen’s help.
Thank You Kristen for all you have done to help me move my life and business forward with ease and grace.

I had had the item "Update Trust" on my "To Do List" for about 5 years since remarrying. One day after visiting an art festival at Seville Square, I noticed her sign for "My Pink Lawyer" and took note of its originality. A few months later when other matters prompted me to finally update my trust, I remembered her slogan and made an appointment. I found Kristen to be very patient, professional, well organized and easy to communicate with during the process. Because of issues that arose with my father's trust, I know how important it is to try to cover all eventualities, leave the responsibility for my trust to only ONE person, and to be specific about my wishes at this time. Of course, the trust can be revised in the future but we tried to plan ahead. I have already recommended Kristen and believe anyone would agree she does an excellent job. I like the fact that the price was established up front for this service so there were no surprises or extra expenses.

Ms Marks specializes in womens' issues and estate law. My late wife selected her to prepare our living wills, property wills, and guide us through estate planning. Kristen did well by us. I have continued to have her as my representative in legal matters. I have always been pleased with her guidance,

Kristen is extremely professional and friendly and can answer all estate questions confidently. She keeps herself well informed on all current laws and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone! She was very helpful in my own legal guardianship needs regarding my autistic son and I will likely use her services again in the near future!

Made me feel impowered to make decisions regarding the future. She is very smart and uses her abilities without being intimidating to her client.

Our experience with Kristen was pleasant, professional and detailed in all respects. She explained legal terms and jargon in a manner that we could comprehend. She never rushed and made sure we were briefed on the every detail in our documents. We were presented with a leather binder with documents organized and tabbed for ease of reference. Our experience was above expectations in all respects. We are happy to highly recommend Kristen as a true professional.

6 months ago Kristen aided me in amending some things in my previous Estate Plan that we implemented last year. Things are forever changing in our lives and it is important to keep your affairs in order, for your loved ones.
Recently I hired Kristen to represent me in applying for legal guardianship of my autistic teenage daughter. These situations can be both timely and emotional. Once a plan was set in motion I was able to continue on with my everyday life with no stress involved. Thank you , Kristen, for all you do! Many Blessings! ~Michelle Colon-Johnson
