Highly Competent
After my husband's death I hired Atty.Pudyk to help with a probate issue and my estate. She listened, was compassionate and understanding. My issues were resolved and she completed a will and other documents for my estate. I am very pleased and happy to have found this practice.

Estate Planning
Ms Pudyk promptly returned my call and was very friendly and approachable in our conversation. I felt that I could trust her. The information she provided was exactly what I wanted to know and helped me decide the course of action I could take. I highly recommend her for any legal services she provides.

Emergency POA and Patient Advocate Docs!
My mother became extremely ill and was hospitalized. Due to the nature of her condition. our family was in need of emergency documents and Christy acted quickly. Not only did she take my call on a Sunday, she drove to the hospital, brought a witness, and executed the documents with my mother and family members. Christy was professional, explained all the papers fully, and took the necessary time to ensure my mother - who was on a ventilator - understood each section completely. Thank you Christy for helping my family during a very difficult time.

Elder Care
Christy has been with us throughout our Mom's illness and mental decline. She has made sure we've had the necessary documents to ensure our Mom's care and has helped when we've had issues with organizations not willing to accept the correct legal documents. Christy has made a difficult time in our lives manageable and treated us with care. I wouldn't hesitate to refer her to anyone dealing with elder care concerns.

probate my dad's will
It was very comforting to have a person be kind and knowledgeable at a time of grief. Christy explained things in English that I could understand. She explained documents on my level and made the process easy. I felt she cared and she was there when I had questions and concerns.

competence and integrity
I am a small business owner who had a client that declared bankruptcy and owed me money. Christy guided me through the early stages of the process of trying to recoup some of the money owed . Then issues arose that Christy felt would be better addressed by a colleague who specialized in that type of bankruptcy. The attorney she recommended was also very knowledgeable and helpful. I so respected Christy's handling of the entire situation and would recommend her highly. She knows what she is best able to handle and is very good at what she does.

Excellent attorney!
Christy has always made me feel extremely comfortable with the process and I always was kept up to date on the progress she made. She also made it clear that I was her priority in every case. She handled setting up my business as well as representing me in traffic violations. In every case I was extremely satisfied with her performance and abilities.

Christy helped us through a difficult estate case. She guided us through the probate procedure and always made herself available to us. During this difficult time we always knew Christy was looking out for our best interest.

Christy is a truly helpful professional with Elder Care issues
I first contacted Christy in 2008 at the recommendation of another lawyer, who could not take our case at that time. This seasoned professional said that Christy was who we needed to contact to help us with Guardianship for our mother. We have had to go to court many times and Christy has always been there with us and helped us understand how the system works. She helped me fill out paper work for Conservator also and continues to offer advise and take care of any legal matters that have come up in regards to the Guardianship and Conservator for our mother. She is always willing to answer an email or a phone call when something comes up. This has been a very trying time for our family and having Christy to call on when needed has made this so much easier to deal with. She has even helped us with recommendations for a Realtor when it was time to sell mom's house, and a company to do home repairs before we put the house up for sale, and these people were also very professional and did a great job. I would hire Christy to take care of any legal matter that comes up. Thanks Christy!
