Intelligent and Hard Working
Christel was determined to make sure the best results for the situation were obtained. She always informed me of the reason for why things were happening the way they were and she always cleared everything with permission before moving forward which made it feel like a team instead of feeling disconnected and watching things from a far. Very personable, efficient and prompt.

Divorce easy and low stress
When I decided to file for divorce I wasn't sure where to go...I came across Gjesdahl online and called. I'm glad I did, I received Christel as my attorney and Kari as well. Both were amazing, they were patient, kind, and treated me like I truly mattered and wasn't just another case. They were quick to respond and my divorce was completed in just two months. If I ever need anything in the future I will definitely be calling Christel. I can't thank her enough.

Divorce successful thanks to my lawyers and their knowledge.
I wanted to write a review about how great the lawyers and the law firm were so helpful and comforting. I never had to go through anything like this before so it was pretty terrifying at first. But every time I went and talked with my lawyers they made me feel better about the case the had answers immediately about every question I had. They were extremely knowledgeable about everything with the laws and divorce processes. I know this because of the my ex-spouse's lawyer made her feel. and the confidence I had when I saw the way they conducted them selves. Every time I started getting worried about the case all I had to do was call my lawyers and immediately I got a response and the answers I was looking for. It made me feel great Confident and extremely knowledgeable about the divorce procedures. They had a way of making me feel like a person not just another casce. I have heard of so many people having a bad experience with their lawyers. I cannot say that about my lawyers or thank them enough for what they've done for me. I feel that they went above and beyond what any other lawyer would've done. I know this because of me being way more informed than the other side. When I say way more informed that's an understatement. I'm not very good at writing reviews and all this sort of stuff but. please believe me when I say these lawyers are Great at what they do. At the end of all this I highly recommend them for their services. And I will use them again if anything comes up.
