Transparent, down to earth, & walks the process with you
I consulted with a few different attorneys in Franklin & Crystal was the only one that made me feel as if she really was listening to what I was saying. The others, for the most part, made me feel as if we were being timed & I had to race through my situation. I hired Crystal after about a month when I was ready to file for divorce. She walked me through all of the scenarios & her paralegal gave me a bunch of information to help me when I needed to refer to if I needed it, which I found so helpful. I’m still going through the divorce process but they’ve made me feel like I’m not alone. Crystal is a straight shooter which I like. She doesn’t charge for every little thing and she genuinely wants the best for me & my two kids. I can feel that with every conversation I have with her. I can’t imagine going through this process with any other attorney.

Brilliant, Remarkable Intelligence, Amazing Team
Cannot give enough credit or positive feedback for Mrs. Etue and her staff, especially Erin. They are what a lawyer should be when it comes to truly knowing and advocating for their client. They took the time to truly get to know me, my situation which two previous attorneys had blundered horribly, and then on principle, dug in and scratched and used their extensive understanding of the law to clear the minefield my ex had laid out. They saw the truth, dug hard to get the facts and evidence to support it and overcome opposing sides efforts to conceal and hide crucial materials. I had almost been broken by the process and stress, but they gave me a glimmer of hope, then fed it and worked so hard to stand up to the opposing side, and now, we clearly are in an incredible position to get the results we sought and then some because they fought the right fight and took a stand against an opposing side based on values and principles. You cannot go wrong hiring Mrs. Etue, just be honest, forthcoming NO MATTER WHAT, because they are the poster child for integrity and can handle anything put forth as long as they aren't blindsided. You'll actually enjoy speaking to your attorney and NEVER feel like they just adding dollar signs to your bill. VERY BEST HANDS DOWN!!!!

Professional, articulate, honest and experienced
I hired Crystal Etue to assist with a child custody case. She was always forthcoming, she had my kid's best interest at heart, she was trustworthy and always professional. I was able to get full custody of my kid due to all the work and efforts she put it. Ms Etue was very knowledgeable, insightful and helped guided us through this process. She made a difficult time a little easier and less stressful. I highly recommend her.

Crystal provided legal advice and then representation during a post divorce situation. She went beyond just legal representation and was there for me as a compassionate person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who needs a divorce attorney that will look out for their best interest. Even though I had already went through the court, I was within my 30 day window, she provided me with her best legal advice on everything. We always talked through our plans together and I understood everything before we went forward. She represented me as my attorney and stood right beside me during the most difficult time in my life. Crystal Etue is going to make a name for herself in the Nashville market.

Outstanding Legal Professional
Ms. Etue is a very competent and compassionate professional. She is by the book, however she gives 100% to find a way to defend your case. She really took a personal interest in not only my case but also my well being. I've dealt with a few attorneys and she is by far one of the more personable. She is a genuine a GOOD PERSON which is not common among attorneys. I would trust her to defend my position with any of my legal concerns.
