I hired Kristine on a child custody matter that should've been relatively easy, but has since become complicated and has now spiraled into a very difficult to handle case (which I'm still dealing with, unfortunately). I worked with Kristine a few years ago. It was my first time hiring an attorney so I didn't know what to expect, aside from word of mouth experiences from people I know. The consultation went great and I felt like she truly cared about my case; so far as to fully empathize with the indignation from the opposing party's actions. She seemed passionate about my situation so I hired her, but things went down hill from there - emails and calls were not returned, she was always unavailable due to being away, my questions went unanswered, I wasn't kept in the loop regarding the happenings in my case, etc. I received no assistance or counsel prior to my mediation appointment and later received none prior to my hearing as well. We were steamrolled in court without putting up a fight. I'm a reasonable person with reasonable expectations, but was left with too much to be desired by Kristine's performance with my case. After my hearing, I essentially received an empathetic shrug and that was it.
In hindsight, I regret the way my case was handled. Unfortunately with family law matters, there is no turning back and because of a summation of negligence in the matter at the time and not having handled the case in the best way, I'm still dealing with a highly conflictive, stressful situation that has only gotten worse.
Aside from what I spoke of above, her office does have its pros. Her legal assistant is very nice and professional, and her billing was also reasonable.

Kristine Blagof is a sharp, hands-on and committed attorney. Even during stressful courtroom situations, as a litigator, she has proven herself to remain calm, cool, collected and above all, wise. She is full of professionalism and toughness at the same time, which is hard to find among our age group these days. I recommend Ms. Blagof without reservation.
