My wife left and divorced me. Ms. Zajac quickly negotiated no maintenance (alimony) from me and that was a huge step in financial stability for me. My expectations were exceeded by her and her support person Mr. Briese, when I needed clarifiaction it was provided quickly.

My spouse needed a bilingual lawyer to help her with an issue that her prior representation was mishandling. I found Kristine here on AVVO and saw her solid reviews. We setup a consultation with Kristine and she was professional and competent. We hired her and she saw the issue through completion, worked very hard on my spouses behalf, and never tried to upcharge us beyond her initial quote. She fought hard, and was very empatathetic for us. We are pleased ith the results, and I m happy I found this website.

We found Attorney Zajac online and called for a consultation and retained her to assist with our Son's divorce. Kristine clearly asked what the objects were that we were trying to accomplish and often reminded us of our original "goals" when times got frustrating as we worked through the process. We were able to finalize the divorce without court appearances that would have required travel from Wisconsin to MN. Kristine was attentive and thorough and empathetic. Would definitely recommend her!

I endorse this lawyer. Kristine cares about her clients and does a great job for each of them. I have known her as an Attorney for over a decade and would trust her advice myself if I had a family law issue that I needed to address.
