Since 2000, I have been fighting to enforce the rights of consumers. I founded The Kristy Law Firm in 2003. We represent insurance policyholders whose claims were unfairly denied; employees who have been wronged; victims of medical malpractice; and homeowners with defects in their homes' construction.

Since the inception of my legal career I have viewed James Kristy as a shining example of what an attorney ought to be for his clients. James Kristy is immensely knowledgable in civil law arena and highly respected among his peers. Folks running into problems that require legal counsel would do well to consider James Kristy.

More importantly, James is dedicated to his clients and working compassionately with them to achieve justice in the face of great odds and daunting obstacles. Somehow, he also finds time to work on behalf of consumer rights issues and instruct other lawyers on the law and finding justice.
