I would recommend Christine Kerian for couples who are going through a divorce and want to work things out outside of the courtroom. Christine was helping me and my ex-husband with dividing our assets and writing an agreement. From the beginning, Christine was trustworthy, professional and responsive. She always kept me updated, and responded to my emails and phone calls quickly. She is not concerned about making money, but cares more about her clients being satisfied. Because she loves what she is doing and she is very dedicated to her job, she is a good mediator. Thank you Christine for your help.
It's difficult to write a glowing review due to the context (a divorce) as it would sound a bit odd. That said, I did a lot of research before choosing Christine and she more than lived up to my expectations. She is very good at finding middle ground in a difficult situation and is good at bringing both parties back to the topic at hand and explaining the different facets.
If you're looking for someone who cares, she's it. She really does try to make things equitable and less painful for everyone. I can't say I'd recommend a divorce lawyer as that's a very hard place for anyone to be, but if you're in that situation, I'd say go this route with her instead of pointlessly fighting a battle that's already been lost. She'll make what's very difficult a bit easier. And that's worth quite a lot.
Christine provided us with professional knowledge and a calm environment that allowed us to go through the process of divorce quickly and peacefully.
My wife and I were going through an amicable divorce. We had a friend, who's a lawyer, recommend Christine to assist us with our stipulated separation agreement. Working with Christine was a positive experience at a very hard point in our lives.. Not only was Christine compassionate and empathetic to our situation, but she also proved to be extremely experienced and knowledgeable about the relevant legal environment and the specific laws. I definitely recommend that anyone requiring mediation utilize her services for a personal and cost effective process!
My case involved a rather difficult personality and Christine was able to deal with that person in a professional and calm manner. In fact, I consider it a miracle that she was able to get the job done.
Christine handled my divorce mediation. Ours was a fairly easy division of property, but emotions were running very high between me and my ex. At one point I honestly thought mediation was going to break down and we'd have to go to court, and I credit Christine for diplomatically helping us to both catch our breath and see that we actually weren't too far off on the numbers. Her guidance made a contentious situation amicable. The decor of her lobby and conference room set me at ease and felt conducive to getting through the hard and unpleasant (at least for me) work of reaching a communal agreement with my former partner. She walked us through all of our options and kept us informed us of our rights under the law. I always felt she was impartial and fair. We both needed to keep costs down, and she worked with us to keep things moving, knowing when to call it a day and reconvene later when she could sense progress was stalling. I hope you never need a divorce mediator, but if you do, I recommend Christine.
Facing divorce after many years of marriage can be challenging and all kinds of fear start to take over my mind. Only an expert like Christine was able to easily guide the two of us in the right direction, avoiding to waste time and money in meaningless confrontation. She took the time to show us the best possibilities and allowed us to decide. Our divorce was conducted in a very helpful professional manner. I will not hesitate to refer Christine to anyone.
