Attorney with intelligence, knowledge, decency, power.
Beyond jokes and triviality, divorce sucks to the core. If you’re experiencing it, it is the craziest thing to ever take a single head into. The world out there is cynical and sometimes numb to your affliction and anxieties. As long as the matter is within the courts’ wires, anything is possible. No one can truly tell you what will happen as soon as you step inside that justice-offering building. You need every stretch of imagination, and you need every instrument of power to even up the forces stemming from the side you’re battling against. You need even more of such if your struggles involve minor children. Divorce is this market-site where one error or one bad transaction can tax on you a lifetime. That’s why it is a lasting service you’re doing to yourself to be extra-mindful when you select your lawyer. I worked with Christy on a case that lasted three bold years! And if I took time to study her, it wasn’t because my goal was to write her a review someday. There is something about her I wanted. And much to her credit, I got it.
Christy is not only venerable in the family law community, she also understands the psychology of the system. She understands the technicalities and the intricacies of how this legal system behaves altogether. She has a doozy of a memory and ably can pull every good detail out store to create an advantage. She projects with an authentic mark of authority. She presents with elegance and is chic in style. She is gifted with well-spokenness and is good looking. It is beautiful. She is vocally intelligent and must, undoubtedly, have spent a heck of a long time to achieve her commanding communication prowess. She is deft and impeccably mind-coordinated. She is orderly throughout her work structures and aims high in both quality and scope. Same is reflected among her associates, Katie Sager and Laura Pereira, both whom I closely worked with. You need all that. Such stuff may sound too intangible and abstract to matter. But insofar as the world through which you’re wading does not operate on purely logical benchmarks, those invisible aspects may be deterministic in deciding which way things go. Just that you are telling the truth won’t inevitably compel the court to vindicate you. The style is equally vital. It took me a while to seize that.
There is another advantage to bring Christy into your legal battle. She is a family person and neatly a good mother. Severally during our interactions, she passionately alluded to her children, how she raises, sacrifices for, instills values in them, and how she mitigates the challenges of raising kids in a blended family—she was once divorced. She speaks not just as a person who lives off litigation, but also as a human who experienced the frenzies of divorce herself. She will effusively defend you with every bit of legal instrument she knows—but crucially, she will help you see the light of decency in a rather murky, messy, at times unfair universe where divorces get officialized. You need such a mix of intelligence to chart the most acceptable plan for life in your legal struggles.
Lastly, if I had to be normal with my appraisal, Christy does not come without challenges. Say you select her, you may experience financial frustrations. You may even fall dizzy, especially if you’re hoping for swift results but are financially restrained like I was. Her legal services cost dear. Much as you need her help, you may find it difficult to empathize with the business world in which she orbits. But central to this conundrum and to the choice you are to make, is whether you would, as they say, prefer a slow demise—by abandoning your fate and that of your children exclusively in the hands of the court and of the other side—to a temporary crisis, by paying a lot but also taking part in designing your own prize? I genuinely believe that you need someone like Christy for guidance. I hope you survive well, future fellows!
