Kristen Olbrechts helped me out A LOT with a situation that had come to my attention. Nobody wants to face criminal defense alone. One short phone call and a few emails later and Kristen had EVERYTHING under control.
I would highly recommend Kristen Olbrechts. Call her today!
From: A domestic and traffic law client
Attorney Kristen Olbrechts first represented me in 2006. Kristen is and has held true to being
very consistent. And who has not only been there for me, but sought that I end up on the victorious side. One thing that stuck with me since our first encounter, after hearing my side of the story. Mrs. Olbrechts made it a point the first time representing me in 06', to tell me "that good people make mistakes," assuring me not to worry, leaving a lasting sense of security just knowing she is representing on your behalf.. I would recommend Mrs. Olbrechts services to anyone who needs assistance in Domestic or Traffic law matters, hands down.
Kristen was with me every step of the way. She helped me obtain a protection order against my ex-partner. This was an extremely stressful time in my life, and I would not have made it through without her. When this happened to me, same-sex partnerships were not recognized by our court system. Kristen was undeterred, and it was her dedication and expertise that I feel, ultimately saved my life.
Ms. Olbrechts represented me for a traffic violation. She worked with local law enforcement and the court to get my ticket reduced from a moving to a non-moving violation, thus saving me from a huge hike in my auto insurance costs from a first time offense. Ms. Olbrechts demonstrated a tremendous professionalism, knowledge of the subject area and players and was tenacious in working for me. She treated me with courtesy and respect. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney or outcome. I'd recommend her to anyone in need of a defense attorney.
Kristen represented me in a very difficult case. She reassured me from the beginning to the end of the case, that if I followed her advice and direction that I could get the best result possible. After much negotiating Kristen was able to reduce my charge significantly. The judge and prosecutor both noted that I was the most proactive in my rehabilitation they had ever seen, all due to Kristen's expert advice. I'm truly grateful to have hired such a superb attorney!
