Ms Kirkner did a phenomenal job keeping up the reputation of her profession. She said it would be easy for me to get full custody of my children, she said she would get you ex psychologically evaluated. Want would up happening is that I was the one who had to get to psychologically evaluated and I lost time with my children....not to mentioned it cost me over ten thousands of dollars in the process.

I would recommend Kristin K to anyone! I'm very thankful for her. She has helped me tremendously with all my cases over the years and now (divorce, domestic violence, full custody, child support) and has stood by my side the whole way through. The office staff is very nice and helpful too. Kristin's secretary always kept me informed of my cases and answered my questions in the same business day.

Kristin is the most outstanding, intelligent, and supportive attorney I have ever worked with, and I have interacted with many top attorneys both professionally and personally. She handled my divorce and continues to handle occasional post judgment issues for me. My divorce was a nightmare and especially challenging due to issues involving child custody, military service, domestic violence, division of property, and Federal tax liabilities. She persevered and prevailed, and I am eternally grateful for her outstanding representation in addition to her more than reasonable fee structure. She dug me out of a financial nightmare that would have crippled me for life and compromised the quality of my children’s lives. Her depth of experience ensured that me and my children are financially protected and physically and emotionally safe. She listened to every detail, painstakingly read every long and drawn-out email, and helped me separate the facts and emotions. When I initially presented my case to her, it was a mess to say the least, and she initially protected me with a postnuptial agreement that was iron clad and later survived an assault of challenges from my ex-husband’s attorney that had many years of experience in both trial and appellate matters. She took the time to explain every step of the process and alternative avenues. She was always attentive and diligent in ensuring the best interests of the children were served, and she was able to diffuse highly volatile legal and personal issues between me and my ex-husband. She went above and beyond to respond to my emails after office hours, on weekends, and even when she was on vacation. She was masterful both strategically and in the courtroom. She is highly intelligent, articulate, efficient, experienced, and displays the highest level of integrity. I quickly observed that the judge in my matter respected her, and Kristin prevailed on every motion and issue in my matter. She has a positive relationship with everyone at the courthouse which was extremely helpful in scheduling matters. She is highly respected by her peers and has a reputation for being one of the best. Her staff is likewise incredible, always pleasant, professional, highly skilled, attentive to every detail, and there were never any mistakes, oversights, or delays. Words cannot express how grateful I am to Kristin for her outstanding representation, and I highly recommend her as the “best” without hesitation. She has enabled me and my children to move on to the next chapter in our lives. We are happy, emotionally healthy, financially secure, and -- for the first time in many, many years -- I see a positive relationship growing between the children and their father.

Kristin Kirkner is a knowledgeable and intelligent collaborative attorney who zealously advocates for her clients, at the same time as she offers caring and warm counsel as they make crucial decisions for the well-being of their restructured families. She is well-respected in the legal community and upholds the highest ethical standards of our profession. I cannot endorse Kristin highly enough.
