  • Kristin A. Knudson

    Christine is a highly professional, competent and passionate attorney. With more than 16 years of experience in criminal and immigration law combined, I highly recommend her services to anyone requiring representation in both areas. I have served with her on the U Visa Working Group (of which she is Chair), and found her to be diligent and fearless in her advocacy for immigrant victims of crime. She is the kind of lawyer you want and need on your side.
