Review Crista Haynes

  • Mishandled our case

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    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.

    Crista Marie Haynes’s response: “I am very sorry that you feel like your case was mishandled, but I can assure you that I was never negligent in handling your case, I did not volunteer unnecessary information, I prepared vigorously for your case as I do all of my other cases, I made the necessary arguments at the time of the hearing and ensured that all necessary information was submitted to the court. While I understand that court cases are extremely stressful and at times judges make decisions that we do not agree with or even can understand from a legal standpoint. This is exactly what happened here, all of the necessary information was submitted to the court and the judge on his own notion made orders that we did not like and/or agree with. I was very empathetic after the hearing explaining that I did not agree with the ruling and gave you the options available as well as the prescribed timelines. I explained the necessity to act swiftly but also explained the pitfalls you may face while trying to get the judge to reconsider his ruling as he explained WHY he ruled in such a manner. I truly am sorry that you feel this way about the representation however, I would like to point out that every effort was made on your behalf, from communication, representation and consultation after the fact. I cannot apologize for what I cannot control, the judge made a decision that I cannot see a logical basis for and for that I am very truly sorry.”

    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.

  • Too busy for my case

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    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!

  • THANK YOU CRISTA!!!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Steve

    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.

    Thanks,

    Steve F.

    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.

  • Divorce Disaster with Crista

    1.0 star

    Posted by William

    Crista is terribly unresponsive. I've sent 7 emails over the last 2 months to follow up on an agreement she erred on and still have gotten absolutely no response. Because of her lack of concern for her clients that have paid in full I may in breach of a court order. Evidently it is truly about the $$ and no true concern for her clients. When I hired her she said this would be a fairly straightforward case, since I had done most of the groundwork with the opposing attorney. People, please look elsewhere if you want fair, honest, and true concern and interest from a legal representative.
