An absolute necessity
Ms. Honiotes is a remarkable attorney. When I landed myself in trouble, Ms. Honiotes provided sound guidance and an excellent defense. Perhaps my favorite aspect of her style is that she always offers a realistic analysis, never giving false hope. She worked hard and continues to work hard on my case, and I would recommend her for anyone who requires legal assistance. Ms. Honiotes will not disappoint.

Highly recommended!
Kristine Honiotes was the lawyer who helped us wade through the legal system when our son was arrested. We had actually hired another lawyer first but fired her cause we never knew what was going on. Kristine takes the time to explain the legal system and your options. Her care and concern is genuine and she is very professional. I would highly recommend her!!
