I hired Challis to help me adopt my step-daughter this year. My daughter and I stepped into her office and felt right at home. Challis listened to us and really cared about us. She was honest, and open with us about the entire process. She did not try and push us into anything we did not want or need. She only had a pen and a notepad and wrote our names and what we wanted on it. The rest she handled by memorization. That is saying a lot for an attorney. Trust me I know, as my husband and I have had many others prior to hiring Challis. She showed up to court before us, and met us outside the court room. That was also a first for us, as most times we were waiting for our attorney (sometimes 30 minutes) after the hearing was to begin. Challis was very kind, and that is something hard to find in an attorney. At least I feel like it is in our area. She helped me adopt a child that I had raised as my own for 13 years, along with adding my name to her birth certificate, which is something my daughter and I have longed for, for 13 years. When the biological mother tried to fight the adoption, Challis was calm and told us exactly what would happen, which helped us remain calm and confident in her. I would recommend Challis to anyone, for anything, especially for child custody or other family related cases. She is wonderful. In my opinion she is the best we have in Idaho Falls, and my family is very grateful for all she did.

Very satisfied.
After being married for 32 years, I discovered my spouse was having an affair. I was devastated. Challis McNally was very compassionate and helpful in guiding me through the difficult process of obtaining a divorce. Challis and her staff were very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. I highly encourage anyone experiencing family issues to contact Challis McNally.

Good lawyer
One of the better ones I've had. Pretty expensive, but overall worth it. Only complaint is that she can be hard to get ahold of sometimes.

Poor to no communication
Lack of communication and never was upfront with me on anything going on with my case. Treated like my case didn’t matter and she was too busy for me.
