Fast, Competent Attorney
Christine McClane helped me out with a last-minute agreement negotiation after I found her on Avvo. She never hesitated, immediately jumped on my case and took care of what I needed. I felt at all times that she was competent, professional and fair. Thank you very much for your time and help.

Great Team Player
Christine, is an amazing attorney, her clients are her utmost priority. She works with other professionals such as myself with one goal in mind, to care for the wellbeing of her client. In a caring yet very professional manner. An absolute pleasure to work with! Thank you for your trust that I too take care of your clients!

Extremely professional, compassionate, intelligent lawyer
I hired Christine for a relative who was going through a divorce. I happened to find her through a series of trusted referrals, but did not know much about her. I was so lucky to have found her. The three of us worked together (mostly by email and telephone since I do not live in the same area, but we had several office meetings and she would have been available for as many as we had desired) so that the relative could have a close family member/advocate pay for as well as help navigate the nearly ten-month legal process. Christine far exceeded my expectations. She was sensitive, timely in her communication, competent, decisive, and strategic yet reasonable when advocating for best legal and monetary (and custody) outcomes during each stage of the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants excellent representation in a divorce, however difficult the situation.

You won't be disappointed!!
I called Christine McClane to assist we with some unresolved issues associated with a prior judgement. Christine took the time to really listen and understand my needs. She helped me resolve all my concerns in a professional and expedient manner. The outcome exceeded my expectations in every way.

Glad someone is on my side !!
I have nothing but good things to say about Christine. She did what she said she would do and in a timely manner and brought proper balance to my perspective. She is a calm in the storm of litigation.

A tremendous help
First Christine McClane took the time over the phone to hear my divorce story - gave me excellent free advice. I called her back several months later overwhelmed by the process (my ex-husband wanted us to "do-it-ourselves") she answered my many questions and also helped answer all the questions regarding the response I had due to the court. Christine made the legal process as painless as possible. An excellent attorney that addressed our concerns, simplified the terms and helped expedite a complicated divorce that involved kids and property division as quickly as possible. Emails and calls were answered quickly. She was a tremendous help through a difficult time and a complicated divorce. In addition, she explained and outlined all her fees upfront and was very reasonable. I can't thank her enough!!

Christine is the most helpful attorney I have ever spoken with
I called Christine to inquire about assistance with my case and get help with a hearing. Christine was already booked for the day that I needed someone but she spent time with me on the phone answering my questions, helping me figure out the next step I should take and helping to get me organized. She did all of this for NO MONEY and returned my call on a Friday night after hours and then spoke with me again regarding a follow up question on a Sunday. She spoke to me like a person (not just legal talk that I could not understand) and I cannot tell you how different that is from other attorneys I have spoken with or hired. Christine helped me more for free than any other attorney would take the time to do. Thank you Christine!

Thank you for an awesome work, McClane!!! Yippee-ki-yay (joy)!
Ms. Christine McClane did a fantastic job and turned the outcome of my case in my favor. I was very certain that things will not turn out well for me, until I picked Christine to represent me and turned my accuser into the defensive, and was able to get a mutual restraining order and visitation with my two kids. It makes a big difference when you hire the right attorney, and I highly recommend Ms. McClane. She's a WINNER! I am confident with my divorce pending and with Christine representing me, I know I have a future to look forward to.

Excellent Attorney Christine!
Christine McClane is not only one of the few lawyers with integrity, she is also very easy to talk to, personally returns phone calls, put an end to my divorce quickly, and is not afraid to go up against the toughest of opposing counsels! Her professional, warm, matter of fact demeanor made me feel at ease immediately. Additionally, I felt Christine was keen at listening, which is a lost art among most other attorneys. Christine really worked with me in preparing the necessary paperwork's verbage, while still using her precise legal knowledge in being fair to my ex. I really give the thumbs up to Chrisitine and will continue recommending people to her! You're a God send Christine...Thank you!

Christine was amazing throughout my case.
Throughout my entire process Christine made me feel comfortable. She had empathy for my situation and I really feel like she had my best interest in mind. I knew I could trust her to get me the best possible outcome! Thank you Christine!

I highly recommend Christine
Christine helped me get a restraining order against my ex. She explained everything to me in detail, was really patient and helped me understand what to expect. She was very strong with the other side which it made it easier for me because I was very nervous to even be in the same room with him and his attorney.
