About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

I am an Arizona native. I am a graduate of Paradise Valley High School and Arizona State University.  My undergraduate decree from ASU was in Business Finance, which involves great attention to detail.  For those that are curious, a business finance degree covers areas of financial markets, investments, business financial statements, accounting and financial analysis of business and business projects.  This type of study has been very helpful in my practice as a family law attorney.  

 

After ASU, I continued my education in North Carolina, to obtain my law degree.  During my time in law school, I spent my summers externing with the Arizona Attorney General's Office and with the family division of the Maricopa County Superior Courts.  My time working with family law judges has given me great insight as to how to handle my cases and how to present them to a judge.  Upon graduation from Law School in 2011, I have focused my practice only on Family Law matters.  

 

Aside from my education and profession, I have been married for more than a decade and have four (4) wild boys that keep me busy and tired, when I am not helping people with their family law issues.  Having a family and children of my own, I recognize the importance of the family relationship and maintaining those relationships between parent and child.

Friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful
Chris was able to help me overcome some hurdles especially considering I live out of state and not in AZ he has been very professional and has been able to help me with all my questions and insecurities about my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is in need of an attorney especially if you are out of state!

high conflict high stress custody case
By talking to this attorney(( who represented the opposing party in a 10 year long custody issue))in a 5 minute phone call that was free...he did the single most important thing that i couldnt get done or could everyone else involved . By simply using his knowledge he did his job 100% and made it STOP. for that i will forever be supporitive to this firm no matter what the final decesion is. Thank you Chris.

Parent vs. State of AZ
Mr. Lazenby was very calm and understanding through my whole case. He explained each step of the process, and was always available when I had questions or concerns. When dealing with the loss of your kids it can be hard to be rational, but Mr. Lazenby helped keep me calm by staying active with my case. I was able to get my kids returned to me two months earlier than expected due to my lawyers hard work and support. Even though the case never went to trial Christopher Lazenby treated my case like it mattered from day one by constantly filing motions and standing up for my right as a mother to have my kids with me. Separation from your kids can be hard on the parent, but it is often hardest on the child/children. Mr. Lazenby was understanding of my stress and never treated my concerns like they were trivial. He explained the reasoning behind the states decision and never made me feel like having my children removed from my home was because I was a bad mother. I would definitely recommend Christopher Lazenby to anyone who needs a great attorney at an affordable price!

Very satisfied
Chris was great with my case. He always took the time to explain the process and was very professional. I never had to wait for a response to any of my questions and emails were promptly replied to. His advise helped make the whole process smoother. When I would panic, Chris would not. He did everything he could in my best interest and the outcome was way more than I had expected. I would highly recommend Chris!

Divorce with Minor Children
Mr. Lazenby did a great job at taking care of my needs in my divorce case. He worked only for what I asked him and never did he try to persuade me into something I didn't want or felt comfortable with in my case especially in the child custody part. He also was always readily available and his assistant is also great at giving him my messages and he would get back at me soon. I would recommend him and I would also go back to him if ever needed any changes in my parenting plan.

Excellent advice and service
Chris has been a great lawyer throughout my child custody case. He has always provided me with excellent advice and customer service. Without him I am not sure that I would have custody of my son right now. I cannot thank him enough and I would recommend him to anyone in need of family court assistance.

Professional and Helpful
I was fortunate enough to be put in contact with Mr. Lazenby through the court. Lucky for me because he certainly knows his stuff! My case was handled swiftly and without hassle. Legal matters are always stressful, but I was put at ease knowing I had solid representation. He is extremely reasonable and was particularly understanding about my situation as an individual. Would definitely recommend to others!

Chris Lazenby
Chris was great to work with throughout my case. He educated me on all aspects and I knew going into every hearing what the worst case and best case scenario would be. I felt like he was on my side the entire time and not just because I was the one who hired him. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of a family attorney.

Excellent divorce lawyer
He did a great job with preparing my final divorce decree. He gave good advice, prepared my parenting time schedule, and completed my child support papers. I was able to move on with my life knowing everything was in order. It was a positive experience.

Very professional and took care of business...
Mr. Lazenby took my divorce case and wasted no time to take care of business. He was very professional, of course as every attorney should be, but was also very personable. He responded to my emails directly no matter how simple the inquiry was. I would recommend Mr. Lazenby to anyone that needed his services. I appreciated all his help.

Life saver
Chris helped me out so much. I was out of state when I had issues to address in AZ. Chris handled everything for me and I didn't even have to go to AZ to take care of anything. Chris communicated very well and there were no issues. His staff was great at sending info and I could always call and get in touch with anyone there.

Post Divorce Relocation Petition
Mr. Lazenby is very knowledgable and informative in regards to Family Court matters. He assisted me with a specialized petition at a very reasonable fee. He has since assisted several of my friends with outstanding results. I will use his services exclusively in the future.

Went through a divorce.
Christopher was very helpful and tried his best to make it less costly on the price. He went out of his way to get it settled between us but she wouldn't and it went to mediation and it got done.
