This attorney and her colleagues have helped my family through very challenging issues related to blended families, parenting and harassment. They have been very empathic and involved in helping our family develop structures and supports as needed. Christine worked to organize and coordinate a team of professionals to maintain the health and well-being of our children, as well as the strength of our marriage.
I have worked with several attorneys and have found Christine and her associates to be very helpful and responsive. I am involved in an extremely challenging custody case, including multiple petitions yearly (which has been ongoing for nearly ten years). Christine has been vital in representing my family and I and in connecting us to other service providers (such as counselors, parenting coordinators, mediators, etc.) Her office contacts me regularly and monitors our services and interventions. She and her team have been wonderful!!!
Ms. Descantis is unresponsive to her clients once she has received payment for services. In fact, over two months passed between when my divorce was finalized and when she had even began the necessary paperwork to divide the financial assets. Should you choose her as your attorney please note that she is factually tenacious against her opponents. This also applies to clients once she is paid and you're requesting her to complete her duties. She just might be great for you as an attorney at trial, but do not make the mistake of paying in advance.
Ms. DeSanctis has been very slow to respond (if at all) to any request. In addition, she has (on more than one occasion) been very rude to my family members. Her lack of action and unprofessionalism has added months to the estate probate she was hired to assist with.
