Highly Recommend
I am forever indebted to Kristen for her help with my divorce. She is incredibly knowledgeable and articulate. I had a very intense and complicated situation, and she was my lifeline through it all. I have had a much better outcome than many of the women I’ve encountered who have been through similar circumstances.

professional and efficient
i hired Kristen for my divorce case, she is professional and efficient. I appreciate the clear communication and timely responses. Divorce is hard, especially if you are dealing with a malignant ex. You can trust Kristen if you have mistrusted your spouse.

Kristen Hushka is very capable in dealing with a complicated divorce
Kristen Hushka skillfully dealt with a very complex divorce. She methodically navigated me through a very challenging situation, while she very respectfully managed each situation presented in almost a yearlong endeavor. Her diligent efforts, candid and honest counsel were prominent attributes and ultimately her savvy guidance and writing skills resulted in the right outcome for my family. I would highly recommend Kristen Hushka.

No body likes the word divorce
Kristen was so helpful, professional, and cared. I was married for 10.5 years and I didn't know what to do. She explained everything to me and was very informative on what things meant. I do not wish divorce upon anyone but if it was needed like in my case. I highly recommend her!

Post nuptual agreement and Divorce
When I came to Kristin, I had been avoiding divorce for several years and I asked her if a post nuptial agreement was a viable option. She did research, reached out to other attorneys and came back to me with great information and facts to help me with my decision. She explained to me the potential risks of a post nuptial agreement, which made my decision clear. She advised me, but did not push. She armed me with the information I needed to make the right choice for myself and my future. She was patient, kind and responsive and it was comforting when new developments came up to know I could contact her and she would get right back to me with advise. I would recommend Kristin to any of my friends or family in need of this type of service. My case resulted in exactly what I was hoping for. I am now happily divorced. Thank you, Kristen, for helping me through this gracefully.

Fair and knowledgeable
I was never a person who thought I'd be getting a divorce. But yet - there I was. Left to fend for myself, and with kids in tow. After all was said & done, I will never say "I'm so glad I'm divorced!" -- but I will say "I'm glad I had an attorney like Kristen to walk me through the process." The questions I had were answered very quickly & her staff was on top of my case. She was an advocate for me, sounding board and let me know what her concerns were along the way.

Knowledgable, hard-working, and compassionate.
Kristen has handled my ongoing divorce and custody issues, including domestic violence and an out of state ex-spouse, from the beginning with knowledge, compassion, and discretion. I would recommend Kristen and Pladsen Law office to those looking for attorneys who will work with you and for you.

The Divorce of Roy from JoAnne Jacoby
Normally I would not partake in a survey or review but this one deserves my utmost of attention. I would like to start out by saying if an election was held tomorrow for the best Divorce Lawyer in the State of North Dakota I would nominate Kristen Hushka. She did an outstanding job handling my case from orientation right on through to settlement. My Divorce case started in November of 2018 and became final August 23rd 20019. during that time several issues came to the surface including one court appearance and a lengthy mediation. Kristen handled each one in an excellent manor. She showed total compassion for my case while staying within the letter of the law. I will gladly recommend her to anyone who asks.
