About Me

I enjoy advocating for children and those who don't yet have their own voice.  I often take on Pro Bono cases from the Children's Law Center.  They have been some of my most interesting and gratifying cases.  When I'm not practicing law, I enjoy running, reading and watching movies with my family.  My oldest daughter and I take Krav Maga together and we now have some wicked ninja fighting skills.

  • Stasy D Click

    Kristy and I met on opposing sides in a hotly contested juvenile matter. Kristy is now my go to person in all things juvenile and I would HIGHLY recommend her! If you need an adoption, a severance or a termination of parental rights - she's THE person to see.
