Most Attentive Client Service
We retained Christie as our attorney in a dispute with a hotel stemming from non-performance on contractual agreement. Christie kept in touch with us every step of the way, and was able to obtain an agreeable settlement for us without having to go to trial. Throughout the process, Christie was very attentive and professional, providing exceptional service. We strongly recommend her.

Great attorney. Absolutely the best!!!
Christie Asselin Helped me in the Breach of Contract Claim. I had made a personal loan to a friend that stopped paying mid way through the payment schedule. From the beginning, Christie was a voice of confidence, professionalism, clarity, reliability and understanding. 10 minutes after my first conversation with her I felt very confident I had contacted the right person to help me deal with this emotional situation. For the first time in months, I felt that someone really WOULD be able to assist me, and she did. Due to a strong work ethic, Strong communication skills and a meticulous nature, She was able to keep this matter out of courtroom, and I am now receiving monthly checks again. Thank You Christie Asselin! I will definitely be recommending her services.

Help with wedding vendor distress
Ms. Asselin assisted me in successfully filing a small claims court case against the store that sold me a defective wedding dress. She was professional and compassionate, gently helping move me through the process when my distaste for dealing with the situation would have led me to abandon my case. Her ability to empathize with her clients sets her apart from other attorneys, and I highly recommend her services.

Honest and Dependable
I was exposed to mold/mildew in a resident I residing in for a little over 2 years. I was informed by a friend to consult with a lawyer in regards to this matter. After contacting several attorneys who refused my case due to the fact "mold/mildew case do not pay as much as they use to", my case was finally picked up by Swanson & McKibben law firm. Within 6 months of Christie picking up my case from another attorney at the firm, my case was settled out of court. Christie was very honest and kept me up-to-date on my case. Whenever I had a question or any suggestions she was opened minded and truthful in her response. . We worked together perfectly and I truly believe she did all she could and WON me a nice settlement. I felt Christie showed compassion for me and my situation throughout the proceedings. She even spoke to me about her pass experiences with lawsuits which helped me understand the process being I was new to this. She made me feel comfortable and gave me clear understanding step by step along the way. She truly put up a fight for me and for that I am honored to have worked with such a wonderful person.
