She immediately struck me as a patient and driven person. On my first consultation, she gave me more than the allotted time, making sure that I had more information about the law of my case even if I did not choose her. I honestly thought I would not find any representation that I would feel completely comfortable with. I figured that any attorney would just view me and my case as part of their business, as a monetary influx, not as a family trying to make it through a difficult case. Instead, I met Christine.
I am extremely happy to say that Christine is my attorney. She and her team truly care about every aspect of the case. I see this in all of the communication (massive amounts), in calming my fears, in allowing me to vent, in making sure that my family is doing ok. It has meant a lot to us, the amount of care that Christine and team have given.
In court she was amazing, she was calm and spoke with the kind of precision that most movies try to mimic, only Christine can pull it off without a script. I was thoroughly impressed that she did not try to bend facts, she was able to overwhelm the other side with succinct statements based on what was factually true. She did not use tricks or drama, Christine just uses pure ability. I greatly appreciated this.
These things are why CHA Law is amazing. I hope that she will continue to practice law as she does, with ethics, compassion and stellar capability.
I can especially recommend her to fathers trying to navigate the Texas system. Be completely open with her and she will fiercely go to work for you.

Pleasant experience overall. I retained Christine's services early in 2010 for a Name Change and Gender Marker Changes on my Driver's License. We met up, set an approximate date of completion, took some basic info, and I was sent out to collect supporting documents over the next few months. After gathering my documents, we decided to petition for Birth Certificate correction as well. From that point on it was pretty much a waiting game until the court date. Christine got us booked before a favorable judge and all petitions but the birth certificate correction were granted (thanks a bunch Littleton v Prange grrrr.). So, in the end, I got exactly what I was originally seeking and all for a very fair cost of retainer. I will recommend her to my peers for similar issues. The only bad parts I can say were some periods of non-contact which left me feeling somewhat hanging, but a quick email to the office would be replied to within a few days. Also, she seemed a bit flustered for our court date, but she did make an effort to try and convince the judge to approve all petitions and that was cool. She may have even taught the judge a new thing or two about the current state of transgender affairs at the federal level. Thank you Christine!

My divorce was pretty low-maintenance - no serious battles over property or children - but it was painful, and Ms. Andresen was sympathetic while getting me to look past the emotional issues. seh was very professional. And, even though she didn't have to "get tough" with the opposing council, I could tell from our conversations that she has experience with this and I would trust her with more contentious divorces. I have already recommended one of my personal friends to her, and would do so again.
