Kristine Cummings came highly recommended by a good friend. I was in the early stages of what seemed to be a mostly amicable divorce. I met with Kristine and she thoughtfully and carefully talked me through the divorce process. It was evident in the first meeting that Kristine was highly intelligent and had a vast and concise knowledge of family law. She carefully listened and assessed the details of my personal situation and agreed to work with me. As things quickly became contentious with the other side’s aggressive lawyer, Kristine was a voice of reason; firm and direct in her insistence on “bringing the temperature down.”
Throughout the process, Kristine never deviated from her commitment to what was best for my two children. She was a true advocate for the well-being of the kids, and gave me sound advise based on her knowledge of the law, as well as her years of experience with assisting other families. I never questioned her advice; in fact, it was always greatly appreciated.
Kristine was great about communicating with me (sometimes at very late hours of the night). I found solace in knowing that Kristine was an email or phone call away, and always felt confident and empowered by her words and plan of action. Kristine showed that she cared about my family and that she would fight for what was fair. As a father in a court system that can favor mothers, I was assured through candid discourse, that my rights as a dad would be protected. In the end, she was correct.
It is for the aforementioned reasons, among many others, and without reservation that I whole-heartedly recommend Kristine Cummings to anyone seeking representation.

Kristine worked on my contentious divorce over the course of two years. Her superior knowledge of Mass Law, professional demeanor, and patience, made a very difficult situation, tolerable. I would HIGHLY recommend Kristine, and her promotion to Partner was well deserved! Kristine was extremely patient throughout the entire process, and was always reliable and prompt. I felt educated and informed as a client, explaining the best options for me and my children. She is trustworthy, and EXTREMELY professional. One would be extremely lucky to have Kristine and Sally and Fitch LLP on their side throughout the divorce process.

Kristine represented me in my divorce after a short-term marriage. She was extremely knowledgeable and guided me through the difficult process. She was always available to answer my questions, including prompt responses to emails that I would send at late hours of the evening. I highly recommend working with Kristine!

I have worked with Kristine for the past few years, and I am nothing short of impressed with her knowledge of family law and passion for her clients. I have heard firsthand from clients how pleased they are with her commitment, knowledge, and results. I recommend her for any aspect of domestic relations cases.
