Highly experienced and attentive
Christine graciously inherited my case from another attorney who had a conflict, and my case was complex and nuanced from the start. From the very beginning, she demonstrated a level of expertise and dedication in handling my employment case. Her understanding of employment law and her strategic approach were instrumental in securing a favorable settlement for me. I would recommend Christine and her firm to anyone.

Absolutely Amazing!
Absolutely incredible Attorney! Wish I would have had her from the Jump and she was my attorney for everything. If you ever need any help/advice with employment law or anything she does. You better call her first! Even through this whole Covid ordeal. She was there every step of the way with me and very responsive to all of my questions. Give her the power and trust she won’t fail you! 5 stars because that’s all I can give. She definitely deserves more. Thank you!

Stellar and Effective Attorney
Christine is one of the best attorneys I have worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough and even helped me with issues outside of the scope of the engagement. She was diligent and successful in her efforts to resolve my issue and always responded to my inquiries promptly (even when out of the country on vacation!). I would highly recommend Christine and found her fees to be very reasonable.

Very Helpful
Christine kept me informed 100% of the time during the ongoing disagreement I was dealing with. I have never felt so comfortable talking with a lawyer as much as I did with her. I trusted her decisions and never had any doubts throughout the entire process as to whether or not she would be able to get the job done for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needed help with their case.

Fantastic and Honest Lawyer!!!
Extremely Helpful with her advice. She was the only attorney out of 8 attorneys that called me back. She responded quickly by email and even sent one to me on a Sunday! I really did have a great experience with her and highly recommend her!

SUPERB
Attorney Christine Elzer is truly a rising star. Christine's professionalism and attention to detail is extremely meticulous. She is very responsive, thorough and has tremendous follow up. I recommend Christine Elzer at the Cordes law firm without hesitation.

An incredible attorney and amazing person
I am currently still litigating a lawsuit with Christine, but I have to write this review. To date, she has been the best legal rallier on my side during this emotional journey. Not only is she an incredible attorney, she is an amazing, caring woman as well. She takes all the time you need to address any concerns and answers any questions. I could not have picked a better group of attorneys/paralegals to work with me. They treat you like their own family. She responds promptly to emails, phone calls, sits and talks in person as long as you need, and not only does she give me legal advice, but takes the time to get to know me as an individual, and not just another client. She has worked wonders easing my worries and fears during this journey. She always has a positive outlook on any situation, and is the best person to turn when you have a legal matter that needs resolved. She is very thorough, makes sure she has all of the facts correct, and remembers them, reciting facts about the case from memory without referring to her notes because she took the time to read everything thoroughly,carefully, not leaving out any details,and addresses any and all concerns, issues, and problems. No matter how insignificant a detail or worry or fear may be, she treats it like it is as important to her as it is to me, and makes all efforts to resolve it and bring it to attention. I would recommend Christine to anyone, everyone. If you are looking for an attorney to not only represent you and give you legal advice, but to also care about you and your case, talk to you and treat you like family, and give herself 300000000% to your case, Christine is the woman to go to. I thank God everyday since our initial contact for finding her because she is the guide leading me to the light at the end of this tunnel.
