About Christina

Learn Christina’s areas of practice.

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Attorney Christina Lukacsy Friedman earned her B.A. in history from the University of California, Davis. After working in the financial industry and starting a family, Christina then went on to pursue her passion for family law by attending the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver. She has called Colorado home since 2012.

 

During law school, Christina interned for Colorado Legal Services in their Family and Children Unit, the Honorable Ross B.H. Buchanan, and was a judicial fellow for the Honorable Michael J. Vallejos in the 2nd judicial district.

 

Christina has dedicated her legal career to the practice of family law, which has also included estate planning. She has worked on complex family law cases including dissolutions of marriage, APRs (custody), post-decree modifications, relocations, putative and common law marriages, petitions for invalidity of marriage, and prenup invalidation and enforcement. She comes to Halligan with a comprehensive command of family law and its interplay with other areas of practice.

 

Christina’s strongest skills include her candor and ability to size up a situation, articulation of her client’s needs, and sensitivity to clients during what will be, for most, one of the most difficult transition stages of their lives. Christina knows first-hand the high stakes at play in family law proceedings, and her experiences have informed her own understanding and perspective of being a family law practitioner, making her a committed and dedicated advocate for her clients.

 

In her spare time, Christina enjoys cycling, gardening, playing piano and guitar, and spending time with her two children while taking advantage of all the outdoor splendor Colorado has to offer.

A badass lawyer with a conscience
What else can I say about Christina, Derica & Kendra, The whole team held the stuff together when they needed to. I knew a divorce process was not easy however with my health issues attached and everyday life too, there were days that I really didn't know what I was doing, where I was going, did I miss something or forget to pay my bill... the list goes on. I thank you Christina for every "heads up" call you made to me, your sharing of your feelings BEFORE forwarding the opposing counsels emails and your overall human-ness during this process, I am so grateful I chose your firm to represent me... again Thank you, you all Rock!

Best attorney I could have!
Christina always took the time to listen to my concerns and answered my questions. She is a wealth of knowledge. She discovered things that were hiding! I'm so happy with her and my outcome.

Thank god for Christina!
There’s no easy way to get divorced but Christina sure made it feel that way. Not only did she support me throughout this whole process, but she made me feel heard, seen and understood. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes with a divorce and I probably would have lost all my hair without her. Her and her team really took care of me and made sure everything was done efficiently and timely. ANYONE going through this process needs to hire Christina and the Halligan team.

Intelligent and Caring
Christina is a good attorney. She truly cares about her clients. She will listen to you, and will advocate for you no matter what. Christina knows what is like to face a divorce process, and that will make an enormous difference. When I was in a crucial moment during the divorce she helped me to take one of the most important decisions in my life with solid facts, because she never forgot about my case, and thanks to that I am incredibly happy now. Thank you Christina, I really appreciate all your help that allowed me to rebuild my life with my Boys next to me.

Divorce sucks but having an amazing attorney helps!
I felt heard and protected. I delegated my problems to Christina and she was empathetic, assertive, and wise. I appreciate her being reasonable and honest even when I didn’t want to hear the truth. We ended up negotiating after mediation and avoiding court. I got everything I wanted. Thank you so much!!

Great Lawyer, Recommended
Christina did a great job throughout my divorce and I would recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney for divorce. She was diligent, responsive, hard working, and a pleasure to work with. My case had some unique issues that she effectively navigated. I ultimately ended up with an outcome I was pleased with and quicker than I expected. Beyond the legal issues, she was empathetic to my situation and always willing to listen to my thoughts and feelings. She also helped me keep as positive of an attitude as possible throughout what was one of the most difficult ordeals in my life. Christina is a terrific advocate and excellent lawyer!

Awesome Attorney
Christina helped me navigate through one of the most difficult times of my life. She took the time to listen and tried with great patience and diligence to get my ex-spouse to understand my positions. She promptly answered my questions and was always there for me as my advocate. I can't express how much I appreciate her intelligence, willingness, and ability to get everything resolved as quick as possible. Thanks to her support, we were able to get my case resolved on the 91st day after the filed petition. I have no doubt it was resolved so fast due to her ability to get everything submitted to the court for review and resolution.

Great lawyer
While my separation and divorce were done in a mutual and friendly way (both parties agreed on almost everything), my situation was complex: children and 2 countries. After searching and connecting to several lawyer’s offices who would not take my case or were asking for an arm and a leg before even talking to me, I reached out to Christina Friedman and her team from France. Christina Friedman immediately called me back, took the time to listen carefully to my situation, took notes before receiving any fees and agreed to work with me. Christina Friedman and her to team gave me valuable, wise, professional and peaceful advices. Within 6 months the case was closed. If you are looking for a professional, knowledgeable with a human side attorney, I would highly recommend Christina Friedman to represent you

Worked diligently to achieve success.
I had positive experience with Christina Friedman. Quick response, friendly behavior, honest and truthful advice throughout the representation, built confidence and became great emotional support during my difficult time. Legal issues were identified early in the process and Christina worked diligently to achieve success. Fraudulent Marriage and Marital Agreement were invalidated to save me hundreds of thousands. Christina's legal search, writing and representation skills were demonstrated in the Court of Law to win me a complex case.

Crazy Friday Night!
"I had the privilege of working with Christina as my family attorney and I am beyond impressed with her expertise and dedication. My ex-spouse had been violating our parenting plan and I was at a loss on what to do. But then came a Friday night when the kids called me in a panic, saying their other parent had relapsed. I immediately reached out to Christina and she answered the call even after hours. She listened to my concerns and calmly walked me through my options. Thanks to her guidance, I was able to safely pick up the kids. And to my surprise, by Monday morning, she had already drafted a motion to modify parenting time ready to file. I am grateful for her unwavering support and would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a family attorney. Christina truly went above and beyond and I can't thank her enough for navigating me through such a difficult situation."
