Polished, professional and responsive
Kristina represented me in my Utah Divorce in 2012, I suspected my ex-wife was cohabitating, I contacted Kristina for a consultation and we discussed the evidence I had regarding the cohabitation. She advised me on of next steps. Within 45 days we were able to have my ex-wife sign the stipulation to terminate alimony. I am incredibly thankful for her honesty, integrity and willingness to take my case 10 years after my divorce. I was impressed with her 10 + years ago and am more impressed today.

Excellent attorney, highly recommended!
Kristina initially provided excellent consultation and we ended up hiring her for our case. She has been extremely professional, easy to contact and meet with, and able to anticipate and stay ahead of any problems we could have encountered. She has remained in contact with us as a consultant and provided guidance to help us ensure the final settlement is what we need and want. I just can't say enough about how knowledgeable, skilled, and helpful Kristina is.

Medical Claim
In November I received a bill from Elevate Recoveries attempting to collect over $1700 for an Urgent Care visit from Jan 2017. After consulting with Kristina she notified both companies (letter by mail) that no creditor can bring action on contract more than 4 years old. The result of her letters closed the case and no monies were owed. I highly recommend Otterstrom Law, everything was handled professionally and quickly.

Awesome estate planning experience
I had created a will online, but a recent experience made me realize that I had not dotted all my "i's" so to speak. Neighbors had recommended Kristina and she was great! She explained all parts of the process thoroughly and was terrific to work with. I am quite happy and satisfied with the process. I definitely recommend Kristina for any estate planning needs.

Kristina worked with my wife and I on our will. The entire process was reasonably painless. Kristina walked us through the process and even came to our home for the will signing. I highly recommend Kristina as she's courteous, professional, and responsive.

Professional and a Great Business Attorney
We hired Kristina to help us when a customer refused to pay some final invoices. Kristina was professional and represented us well. She gave us great advice and we were able to close the case with a settlement in our favor. We trust Kristina with all of our legal needs. She has reviewed several of our business documents and revises them as needed. She is always responsive and gets back to us quickly. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional.

Great prompt communication and follow up
We needed help when the city and utility companies started to do work on our property outside of our consent. As home owners we were not sure what we could do about it and the utility company and the city wouldn’t return our phone calls. That is until we hired a lawyer. Kristina was wonderful. She was fast to contact them on our behalf and to get them to stop working until they communicated with us. We are very happy with the outcome and she was with us every step of the way. I wish I would have contacted her sooner. Our rights as landowners were not taken seriously until we got a lawyer involved. I am so happy we were lucky enough to have Kristina fight for us.

Resolution of Property Tax Issue
I hired Kristina to help me with a property tax issue. She listened well and suggested best path forward, then she swiftly followed up. I got resolution on my tax issue within weeks, whereas I would have lost several thousand dollars from a lender’s mistake during closing without her diligent help and follow up. She is honest, hard-working, and cares for her clients.

Really helped us in our time of need!!
As a result of COVID and forced relocation, we found ourselves with a lease commitment that would have been a significant cost burden. Without a diplomatic clause, the landlord management company was not forthcoming in helping us resolve the issue. Kristina advised us of case and statutory law as it pertained to our matter and successfully negotiated a settlement. Her expertise and professionalism really shone through in all our interactions. She was also really responsive after hours and weekends when certain issues required clarification. We can highly recommend!

Diligent, Thorough and Caring
Kristina went above and beyond in her preparation for my case, explaining what could be expected in detail so that I had no surprises and nothing to be uneasy about. She handled opposing counsel with ease, making a horribly uncomfortable situation tolerable and communicated with me throughout, giving me confidence in a very challenging scenario.
