I hired Ms. Marichalar to help me with my divorce which involved division of assets centered around a complex division of home equity transaction. In addition, during this process my ex-spouse changed attorneys three (3x) times; all in all, my divorce has lasted over two years.
During this entire process, Ms. Marichalar remained calm, determined and in control. Because of the multiple changes in my ex-spouse's attorneys, she took over the drafting of the divorce decree as well as the division of the assets. She protected my interests, told me when I being unrealistic (or unreasonable) and managed to keep me calm during a very stressful period in my life.
Finally, Ms. Marichalar fees were very reasonable and fair; she took care to keep her hours to a minimum. She maintained a cheerful, confident demeanor and has a very professional staff.
I would definitely recommend Ms. Marichalar.

Crista was very professional, and kept her oath on client attorney privilege. I felt Crista was someone who took her job seriously and cared about her work in other words it wasn't all about the money. Crista was fair in all aspects and is definitely someone I would reccommend to anyone in the need of a great lawyer.
