I hired Mr. Sundstrom to handle my divorce. I paid him thousands of dollars from my retirement account so I could obtain a settlement from ex-husband after 37 years of marriage. When I was starting to make some progress in my case, my ex-husband hired a new lawyer who was ruthless. Mr. Sundstrom lost interest in my case at that point, and when I ran out of money, he quit. I was forced to end the settlement on my own and I lost almost everything. I made mistakes by not standing up to him, I told him many times I wanted to end it, but he kept saying wait. I thought I was waiting for the accountant, but he was waiting for my money to run out. I had to wait months for Mr. Sundstrom's accountant to make a report on our businesses and in the end it was not a true report. I would like to warn those who are looking for an attorney to NOT look in the yellow pages. Do your research, and read reviews. Look for a lawyer who cares about his client and winning the case, not how much money he can get. My friends and family cannot believe what happened with my divorce. I now qualify for food stamps and my ex-husband is laughing every trip he makes to the bank.
Last year I engaged Mr. Sundstrom to give me advice when my exhusband made an unreasonable request for full custody. Chris was referred to me by a trustworthy friend and I had researched other lawyers as well before deciding to go with his services.
My exhusband ended up not pursuing the full custody request, but he did pursue an adjustment to child support which Chris represented me on. It was an atypical financial situation which required considerable requests for information to support my exhusband's statements. Throughout the case, Chris was sensable and honest in his approach and he continually found ways to limit he and his staff's hours. He was honest with me about not being an expert in financial or tax law, his reputation and sensable approach with the courts and the opposing counsel resulted in a better than anticipated outcome.
I would definitely recommend Chris as an advocate for his clients!
Mr. Sundstrom was recommended to me by a friend who's wife used him for their divorce. We are finally all but done and I have been very happy with all aspects of how everything has been handled. Of course would have liked it to be less expensive.
Mr. Sundstrom and his staff have been very professional throughout the duration of the case.
A great rep with judges, as a no-nonsense lawyer. Presents a solid, concise case of facts that judges appreciate when the opposition slings the mud. I'd send any friend or family member to Chris. I could not have hoped to find a better guy to fight for my daughter and I.
Mr Sundstrom represented me in my divorce proceedings, and while costing on the high end, handled my case so well that the outcome was better than expected/hoped for. He initial evaluation was spot on, advising me it would be a difficult and lenghty case, and did let me know it would be expensive. His work was excellent, and his staff seemed to be very knowledgeable.
