    I've worked with Kristin for over three years now, and I'm proud to continue working with her as a co-founder of the New Chapter Law Group! Kristin's work ethic, tenacity, and dedication to her clients' rights has not only earned her clients' respect, but also the respect of many Judges and Bankruptcy Trustees in the Southern District of California, as well as my own respect.
