Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse attorney Kristi Morley. She is an exceptionally gifted family lawyer. Unlike some who fleece their clients by padding their bills carrying out bizarre and unnecessary exercises in futility under the guise of "legal" work, Kristi puts the needs of her clients front and center and works diligently to steer them through a potential quagmire by providing sound and highly efficient representation aimed at achieving the greatest gain with the least personal sacrifice to her client. Experience, diligence, and a brilliant legal mind all make a big difference in our adversarial court system. In Kristi Morley these qualities present themselves in great abundance. The beneficiaries are those clients fortunate enough to have found her and wise enough to have hired her.
