Chris Vadino was the best thing that happened during my divorce. I credit her for possibly saving my daughter's life.
Chris worked diligently to get to the bottom of the "he said, she said" that goes on in a divorce. This was vitally important in my case, since I had an abusive spouse. She interviewed neighbors, my child, my child's teachers, me and my spouse. In addition she consulted with other experts to make sure she got it right.
I'll admit that once you have been through a divorce in the Wayne County Court system it is easy to hate everyone. However, Chris acted quickly and made a determination that made such a tremendous difference in my life and my daughter's. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for true justice, but not to anyone trying to "pull the wool over people's eyes'.

We found Ms. Vadino to be unresponsive, at best. She failed to return phone calls and emails for almost one year after a new parenting time schedule was entered, despite the fact that I paid my bill in full and she was still assigned to my children's case.
Ms. Vadino did not appear to put the children's best interests in multiple instances which I will not elaborate on.
I would NOT recommend her to anyone. If she is the "best" that Wayne county has to offer, in terms of a GAL, that doesn't speak highly of what Wayne county has to offer.
I am completely and utterly disgusted with the entire process. I paid a lot of money for a GAL that I didn't ask for, and got basically nothing in return. It seems that the only people who profited from using her was her, and the attorneys on my side and the opposing side.
