I can't say enough about Bristol, Haynes & Associates. Crista Haynes was my attorney and she has been caring and very honest with me through the process. I went to court for Grandparent rights and she was and still is excellent with my case. She knows her stuff and her associate Michael Fey is also a excellent Attorney he had to fill in a couple times and he was up on everything for my case and very professional. I would recommend this firm to anyone seeking legal advice or representation they are hard working and honest and will do their very best for you in court.

Working with Christa was the worst experience ever! My husband and I hired her to handle a custody issue. She was to file paperwork for jurisdiction to be made her in California. She lied about filing anything. Nothing was ever done or anything filed! We were working with a lawyer in Maine also who was trying to contact Christa. She never called him back or us back. We tried to get ahold of her for 2 months and we never got a response. The receptionist would tell us that they have relayed the message for her to contact us and she never does. The staff you can tell are sick of hearing from us. We went to court with no help from her because we were never Able to reach her. We were hung up on several times. After 2 months of not having any contact with her we decided to hire a new lawyer and pay ANOTHER retainer fee. We called her firm and told them we no longer needed Chirsta's services. We never received any information. We sent an email stating we wanted to end services and would like our refund back. It has been 3 weeks and we have received NOTHING. Not an invoice, refund, or even phone call. My husband continues to call and they tell us that we will have our invoice by Friday. Of course Friday passes and we receive nothing! We call Monday and they are rude to us on the phone stating Christa, as always, is not in the office so they have no information now. Our phone calls are not longer being answered and we have yet to receive our refund. We hired her ignoring the bad reviews she had already had written against her. Do not ignore them! They are the truth. Working with her was a complete waste of our time and money. Please don't put yourself through the same mistake we and other did.

Crista said she could handle by case and that I would probably not do jail time. That is what happened. Have a lot of fines and hoops to jump through...but no jail time.

Crista was negligent in handling our case. The petitioner had no justification but fortunately for him, our lawyer Crista, volunteered unnecessary information that won the case for him (despite our MANY objections). She was ill prepared and seemed unfamiliar with our case. She did not counter any points made by the other lawyer even when prompted. We were not even given the chance to review paperwork submitted to the court on our behalf. After the judgment, she was not apologetic nor did she explain what our options were or what was going to happen. We had to ask the questions and her responses were curt. Extremely disappointed that our lawyer chose not to represent us effectively, failed to communicate with us, was unconcerned with learning our case, and as a result gave away our case but gladly took our money.

I hired Crista and her firm to finalize my divorce and figure out child support and custody. She was very efficient and new answers to all my questions. I felt comfortable with her and she was very patient and understanding. I will definitely refer her and her company to all my friends.

Crista was initially interested but quickly became too busy for my case. She would take weeks to respond to emails. She was too busy "In court" to file my documents in a timely manner and only did so when prompted by my numerous emails asking about the status that she then charged me for. She made several spelling errors and cut and pasted documents leaving in the other clients name and information. She changed the title on the wrong vehicle. She took two years to complete a non contested divorce dragging it out because she was too busy. She did not offer any advice to protect my interests. I felt her to be sloppy and uncaring. She charged me attorney fees for work done by others in her office. I would never recommend her.

Crista assisted my son with his criminal case out of the Victorville Courthouse. She was very honest and caring with our situation. She made sure my son received the best possible deal. I appreciate all she has done for us. Thank you!

I want to say THANK YOU to Crista Haynes!! She was my “knight in shinny armor” She was very diligent & knowledgeable with her expertise in my Criminal & Divorce case. I have never been faced with a legal situation in my life! So I was very nervous with what I was going to be facing ahead! I was being falsely accused of Domestic Violence from my wife I married from out of this country (so she could get her residency with out staying in the marriage) LONG STORY! Luckily I had Crista & TRUTH on my side! Crista helped me keep my good name clean! This took almost 2 years with battling the D.A.! Myself & Crista were not going to just sit there and let my ex-wife destroy my name for a “Green Card”! This was the most frustrating time in my life because “My Life” was not in my control anymore! It was in everyone else’s control and hands! Crista took the bull by its horns and took it down for me! I hope to god I am never in another legal situation again, but if I am, I will be calling Crista weather she likes it of not!! I owe my life and good name to her.

I was charged with a DUI over five years ago. When starting my professional career two years ago I decided that the best option for me was to have my charge be expunged from my records. Ms. Haynes handled the expungment for me so quickly and painlessly. The process was explained, executed, and then followed up with such professionalism.

I had a Durable power of attorny written up for my Mother and I. I was very pleased with her and her office staff. They were very good about answering my question and concerns. I will use her services again when the need arises.
