Marc is the only reason that my divorce was finalized. Marc’s professionalism, experience, guidance and compassion to help solve emotional and complicated matters. Marc was so valuable and available to help me no matter what. His valuable knowledge and experience provided me the help to understand and make the right decisions during my divorce. Through my ups and downs of going through a very tough divorce that could of lasted a long time. Marc always took the extra time to explain what was at stake and look at the big picture. This was to end up with a divorce that I felt was fair and satisfied with. My ex-wife hired a very aggressive and unprofessional lawyer who promised her the moon. He promised she was going to get everything and I was going to pay. After several appearance's in court that did not go well for her and her lawyer due to Marc's amazingly wonderful preparation and presentation. She fired her lawyer and told me all he did was lie and tell her how much she could get from me. I explained that Marc is an exceptional lawyer and was always honest with me. Marc was kind enough to finalized everything to both of our satisfaction and represented both of us at the final divorce hearing. His honesty and desire to listen and help me and my family will never be forgotten. I have to say Marc is one of the most professional and caring people I have ever met. I highly recommend and trust him.
I highly recommend Marc Christiason and his team. My case was extremely complicated and unusual. Not only was Marc and his team highly effective, they were always professional and yet treated me like family. Due to Marc's lengthy career he has a multitude of resources at his fingertips. The entire team was very responsive at all times and always keep me informed. Going through any legal process is very draining emotionally and I am so glad I had Marc on my side.
I spent a lot of money on this attorney. He seemed to focus on ways to draw the case out rather than find a resolution. He also gave bad advice which resulted in a penalty. I finally gave up and went to another attorney.
My wife and I entered a "collaborative" divorce process. We were told that this would be the most straight forward method of obtaining a divorce. The process, which is not complete after nearly a year and based on the this attorney's work was going to take over 20 months. I spent more than $25,000 on this attorney and did ALL of the real work. I prepared the parental plan. I prepared the budgets, I prepared the asset and debt division proposals. Each time I sent this attorney information, what I got in return was obviously a cursory review of the materials and a very large bill. He was not well informed on taxes as they related to our divorce. Even though my wife and I both wanted to get to a settlement, he kept pointing toward arbitration or an expensive trial. I would never recommend this attorney to anyone as I do not believe he really has his clients vested interests other than to drive toward the most expensive resolution possible.
