I strongly recommend Kristi as an attorney!
I had the pleasure of working with her on my family case. I told her everything that was happening and she listened carefully. She took on my case with enthusiasm and dedication and I completely trusted her from the beginning.
Kristi has great organizational skills, creative thinking, and courteous, knowledgeable, patient and great people skills.
When deadlines loom, tension can build. Kristi always knew how to add levity to the situation, cracking jokes to relieve stress and kept on task.
With Kristi's take charge attitude and strong grasp of the law she is truly an asset to the judicial field.

absolutely a wonderful, caring, and committed professional. worked on every issue on the case, and made sure every questions was answered and helped with any concerns. kristi came into a case that was a mess and straightened it all out. she is highly recommended! many fathers rights are never taken into consideration, she makes sure we have a voice when no one will listen. my kids and i thank her for all she has done. not only for her work on the case, but for the structure and help she provides beyond just law. thank you so much!

For any father seeking equal treatment in the custody of their child/children, Ms. Fox is extraordinary in presenting your case in family court.
My case was presented in Anoka County, where Ms. Fox was able to show an unstable environment regarding my son.
Through documentation; exceptional knowledge of the court system guidelines, and outstanding presentation skills, Ms. Fox clearly and decisively proved my case.
I was awarded sole physical custody of my son. I wouldn't have been able to do this without her expertise in the field of fathers' rights.
The unique quality that Ms. Fox possesses is she really cares, empathizes, and listens to her client. I honestly consider her my friend, which I've never experienced with any other lawyer.

Thank you for your time, and yes!!! We won, what was said to be unlikely and with no one defeating this company up until my court date, we walked out not only with a win but justice that was well deserved, thanks to this woman's patience understanding and good hard old fashion studying and work!! Without her ,that couldn't have been possible . Thank you Mrs. Fox "incredible work "

Kristi was hired after I fired my money sucking first attorney. All my previous attorney cared about was $$$$ and more $$$$. Kristi is very fair in her fees and is willing to work with just about any plans. She is not at all afraid of taking the bulls by the horns and is not about to be bullied by anyone. She understood what was the most important to me and never deviated from what I was seeking. She was reassuring when I needed it and returned phone calls on a timely basis. There is not enough space to say what a great attorney Kristi is and I highly recommend her to any one who wants an attorney who will fight for what you want and not what some attorney think they know what you want. Thanks for all your hard work Kristi!

Kristi helped out one of my clients that suffered a stroke and now has Traumatic Brain Injury. My client is very capable and has shown that he can take care of his child on his own. The mother of the child was try to take full custody and really didnâ€™t want my client to have any parenting time with his son. Kristi showed off her amazing skills and he got joint custody. My client now gets to see his son every other weekend from 4 on Friday until 4 on Sunday and every other Wednesday night. She helped him out so much. I would recommend Kristi to anyone that needs help. She has a great understanding and is willing to help out her clients in court and get what they deserve.

Where to start...Kristi is beyond AMAZING!!
Started with a very sad phone call in February. Kristi came right to my house and we talked about my case, talked about a payment plan. Asked me to sleep on it and call her in the morning. Didnt need to sleep on the price (overly fair to me).
She immedietly got me in on as a party to a CHIPS case. (The county took my son out of my ex's home) She informed me that it might not end there and could turn into a custody case, and she would continue to represent me no matter how long it took.
Kristi continued to fight the county in court over and over for months so my son could come home with me. Always keeping me very informed on every detail, either by email or by phone. She was up against not only the county but my ex wife who is a pathological liar and is very manipulative and her 4 different attorneys.
Kristi took alot of her time appearing in court on my behalf driving to the cities sometimes 3 times a week. She also met witnesses that would help my case, and may have helped my sons little sister in the process also.
I wish I could tell you everything and every detail about my case but I cant. I can tell you that Kristi is amazing, and she fights very hard for you as a client, and talks to you as a friend and leaves out no secrets. Thanks to her I have my son back full time in my house with the rest of my family, including mine and my fiance's children.
His mom only gets a few hours every other weekend with him, for his safety.
All in time for Christmas! Thank you Kristi!

Kristi was retained by myself to hopefully bring closure, peace and finally fairness to what was a horrible original divorce decree. With a child support payment much higher than state mandated, visitation rights being denied, and basically my ex wife trying to push me out of my kids' lives, Kristi did the impossible. She fought for my parental rights and amazingly got my child support lowered hundreds a month to exactly what the state says it should be. All of this in the toughest county against men in divorces in MN. She did what I thought would be impossible. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a fair judgement in a family court of law, especially to anyone who thinks they have been unfairly ruled against in a divorce case.

Kristi was open to a payment plan and accepted a down payment and post dated checks which she said would be cashed only after a phone call or email from her. She finished half our agreement for a child support and visitation matter and cashed checks, without my OK. This cost me over $200 in overdrafts. She would not answer phone calls and emails for over 3 weeks and communication ceased after she was paid with the checks. Grasping at straws, she said I was not ethical with her and wanted to resign.I fired her instead. She seems to have her life in dis-array and it reflects in her work and appearance. Watch your step and get it in writing. P.S. She did get my support reduced, but I was unemployed for over 16 months so it was not hard. She was surprised when the referee sided with her.My visitation still has a court date and I have to hire another attorney and start over.

We retained Kristi for a child custody case that was a mess from the start. It involved 2 children that the mother had already separated and basically abandoned one of them. Kristi listened to all of our concerns about the children and she didn't pull any stops to make sure that we didn't stop until we got custody of both children. I think if we wouldn't have had Kristi that both of these kids would not be living with us now. Or we would still be sitting in a court room week after week. With everything that Kristi was able to find out we were in and out of court in one day. Never even made it to trial. Kristi didn't put down any stops in our case. To this day I now communicate with Kristi about 2 of my own cases and about one more for my boyfriend. Kristi is very knowlagable in child custody and child suprt. We have given out her card to everyone we know that is looking for a good attorney and would continue to use Kristi for any other cases regarding child support and custody

Kristi is not only fair and affordable, she has gone above and beyond to help fight for my cause. When my child support issue turned into a custody battle, she was fair and upfront about the cost and fees involved. She is readily available to answer any of my questions and concerns. She consults with me before filing any paperwork to make sure I am fully comfortable the wording etc. I would recommend Kristi to anyone going through any family or child support issue.
Posted by Kari, a Child Support client, Flag
Kristi has been awesome to me and my family. She has helped me save a lot of money and headaches since we have retained her. She always keeps me up to date with everything that is going on, and makes sure I fully understand whats happening. She is extremely intelligent, and is going above and beyond our expectations. I would recommend her to anyone

someone was trying to get a summary judgement against me. I contacted Kristi and she took over the case. She came to court with me twice and got the motion thrown out. The judge agreed with her on every case point she made. She is detailed, smart and doesn't give up. Excellent attorney.

So far we have loved the work Kristi has done for our case. She's been there very time we have needed her to be and she's always willing to answer any question we have.

I'm mike schlak. I have been represented by Kristi Fox in a child custody hearing fighting for rights for both my girls. I had 0 rights on both my girls and been gettin screwed over by the state, county, and baby momma. And yet always had my kids. I've call social services and was told to f off when I was reporting drug use and neglect from the babies momma. I have been doing all I could do to get my foot in the door with no luck at all. I contacted Kristi Fox and told her my situation with my girls and I. She responded back to me with high confidence in this matter. So we got together and set up a plan and gave her all my info I had pertaining this case. When I met with her I felt comphy talkin to her. She is not judgement nor stuck up. She is very confident in her work and told me the first day I met with her that we could be in court in 1 month. She set the court date and I filed for order of protection witch was a whole different court matter and she said she would show up to court when she want hired on for that case. And she made things happen in the court room for protection and also at that same time was able to get me full soul and leagal custody of my girls all in 1 court case. She told me I don't need to go to court on the first that she was going to cancel it. Blew my mind there. With her knowledge and persistant ways she made more happen in 1 day of court than ever expected. She had the judge say I could get what ever I asked for, for momma's visitation and child support. She is very busy and can't drop what she is doing for client calls but I didn't fret it. She came to court and layed the hammer down in such a profeshional way and didn't have no give on what she came there for. Kristi Fox knows that ppl in hard time need help and will work with ppl that need the help. I have no money cause of my situation but I have incredible skills in what I do that I was able to barter my motorcycle wrenching skills for her leagal services. This woman has sympathy for ppl unlike any lawyer I have ever met. She is just another person in this world and want to help ppl out that really need it. I am performing work on a old motorcycle that I am jelious of. I will be doing a full motor overhaul and getting it in running riding condition for her services, with as deticated is she is to her job doing rite for ppl, well I am going above and beyond and going to pull off a full original restration on her bike, I know how much her bike means to her being its a family herlioum and id like to do for her what she has done for me. Kristi fox won't judge anyone out to do rite in this world she will make things happen a whole lot fast than any big law firm ever could. If she tells you she feels confident in your matter. Take her word for it and don't let urself get stressed out. She will take care of you and get what you want if your 100% completely honest to her with anything and everything. She is a trusting, confident, caring person, that will check in with you later down the road to sai Hi how's life and se if things are the way you want it. Yeah Kristi Fox you rule. You made miracles happen for my daughters and I. If you want to talk to a person about how she handles her buis. Feel free to call me. Mike schlak 952 688 7836 or text
