Extremely pleased
Kirsten (KiKi) is an outstanding and caring attorney. She made the process of my recent divorce smooth and bearable. She is very ethical and by the book. She does her research to fight your case by the law. I would highly recommend her for your legal needs.
Response from Kirsten Dunton August 5, 2020
Thanks so much for your review and kind words. We take great pride in advocating aggressively for our clients within the bounds of ethics and professionalism. Making things bearable can be hard to do in family law matters, so we are happy we were able to do that!

Experienced Attorney and Fierce Advocate for Her Clients
My interactions with Kirsten “Kiki” Dunton of Gray Law defy simple description. On two separate occasions, she has guided me through complex legal challenges related to divorce and child custody. Her extensive knowledge and dedication to her clients set her apart. Kiki is transparent and forthright about the legal process and potential outcomes. She presents multiple options, ensuring she understands your desired outcome. Every time I’ve engaged her services, she has delivered exceptional support and gone above and beyond in handling my cases. Her tireless efforts consistently lead to favorable results. Kiki advocates fiercely for her clients, always putting their best interests first. If you’re seeking family law representation, I wholeheartedly recommend retaining her services.

Family Law Representation by Kirtsen Dunton
In choosing a representation there are two things to consider. 1. This is the most emotional experience that one could have, leading to clouding even your best judgement. 2. You will not get the dialogue you desire with the Judge. Having a trusted advisor and representative to guide, speak and represent your best case is what you can expect from Gray Law. You can't choose the outcome, but you can hold your head high knowing representation is clean, professional and worthy of walking tall. We didn't win everything or lose everything, but I never was left feeling like just a client or just a paycheck. I left feeling fulfilled with no should have or could have, because I felt a part of the strategy and heard.

Goes the extra mile – Kirsten “Kiki” Dunton
Kirsten “Kiki” Dunton and Gray Law Firm have been outstanding throughout my custody battle. Faced with every outrageous (false) accusation you can think of, Kiki and her team knew how to handle everything that was thrown at us. She’s professional, honest, reliable, compassionate, and always goes the extra mile. I highly recommend her and Gray Law Firm.

Attorney Kirsten L Dunton- Trustworthy
Attorney Kirsten L Dunton was a beacon of hope to my family. In the beginning I feared my ex-husband and attorney Neibra,, Kirsten came in fought and in the end I got everything I asked. My children and I are eternally grateful for her service. Kirsten was literally there with us every step of the way. She was always ready to respond by email, phone, conference meeting, etc. I highly recommend Attorney Kirsten L Dunton!

Excellent Representation at Gray Law
Kirsten is absolutely awesome!! She is very knowledgeable and compassionate about her work and clients. She was available to me and always followed up with me. I walked into the 1st consultation in tears but walked out knowing and trusting I hired the right person. She fought for me and I am sooo thankful for the outcome. Even if I didn’t get the outcome that I wanted, I would have still been happy with working with Kirsten. She treated me like a friend and not a client!! Definitely would recommend Kirsten @ Gray Law.
