    • I recommend Barbara Kristal.
    • I hired Barbara more than 3 years ago.
    • Barbara handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I saw Ms. Kristal in the court room one day and was so impressed with the way she handled her client's case. I was struggling, trying to navigate the court system on my own, and in way over my head. I stopped Ms. Kristal in the hallway and later met with her to discuss my case. I hired her on the spot and that was the best decision I could have made. I have referred a number of people to Ms. Kristal and always get a huge 'thank you' from them for putting me in touch with her.

    Dealing with any Family Law matter can be difficult. A Family Law Attorney has the duty to advise, defend and inform a client during a very stressful and emotionally trying time in their lives. It takes a particular type of professional to be able to "put the pieces back together", so to speak, and gain the trust of someone who feels like thier world in crashing down around them. Barbara is extremely knowledgeable of the law, is highly respected in the legal community and I would reccomend her services to anyone with a Family Law issue. It is with great confidence that I can proudly endorse Barbara E. Kristal as a top-notch legal professional.

    Barabra Kristal came highly recommended to me for a family law divorce attorney. My case involved a difficult divorce with child custody invovled. Barbara is extremely professional, is VERY literate/knowledgeable on the laws and was fair and informative in every twist and turn of my divorce and child custody battle. Experiencing almost 4 years working with Barbara i have seen how judges, commissioners and fellow attorneys have great respect for Barbara Kristal.
    If you are looking for an attorney who knows the law, is professional, is fair and gets the job done and done right, Barbara Kristal is the right choice.

    It was very important to me that the attorney I chose to represent me cared as much about my case as I did. Ms. Kristal came highly recommended to me and after having her represent me, I would never use anyone else. Ms. Kristal treated me as though I were her only client. I was able to call her office and speak to her directly instead of receiving the run around that I was accustomed to. If she was unavailable at that time, I could always count on a call back that same day, even if it was after business hours. Ms. Kristal knew the details of my case inside and out and she continually updated me so I was never left wondering what was going on. I've never met another attorney who is so approachable, knowlegeable, caring and who offers such great customer service.
