Best Family Representative
Kristine did an awesome job for my parents & brother. She was caring & professional & you can tell she's not about just making money. She was the best family representative; she took very well care of my family's desires. She dealt with the entire process while my sister & i were able to mourn. I absolutely recommend her 100% thank you Kristine

Conservator
Since my previous probate attorney was not able to handle my case, I was referred to Ms. Borgia. I was very pleased how quickly she was able orientate herself to the complexities of the Conservatorship that was in place for my developmently disabled adult daughter. I found her knowledge of probate law and issues to be complete and her legal advise on my case to be viable. She helped me to feel comfortable with the outcome of my last court hearing which supported my daughter's current board and care placement and the current Conservatorship.

I had a most pleasant experience working with Kristine! I was very impressed with her expertise, vast knowledge, efficiency and professionalism. It was a pleasure and would highly recommend this very considerate lady. I hated the thought of dealing with a lawyer yet this experience has changed my mind completely. I know I can call on her for any other related matters and won't need to worry about it being handled professionally. I would do it again in a minute!

A diamond in the Ruff!!
Kristine was a angel sent from heaven to deal with our over turned pile of Hell. Our case had been over viewed by many different lawyers and everywhere we went, we were turned down. However Kristine was able to take our case, very assertive, respectful and above all, very explanatory. Our case had been in the court system for quite some time. Kristine was able to strategize everything in order professionally and get our case heard & closed. I highly recommend her.

Probate Attorney
Ms Borgia was retained regarding a rather difficult and complex estate/probate. She displayed an excellent understanding of the law and communicated it well to the Administrator. Her demeanor at all times was very professional instilling confidence in me as she walked me (the out-of-state Administrator) through the intricacies of California probate law. The Court hearings went well and her pleadings/filings were accepted without exception. She was pleasant to work with and very reachable when we needed answers and/or guidance on a particular issue. I would highly recommend her for estate matters.

Above and Beyond!
Typically when I work with attorneys, they are hard to get ahold off. They work 8-5 and to Contact them most have a screening system first. Not Kristine. From the first call, she gave me her cell number. I didn’t think I would neee to use it, but I did. Many times. She responded quickly, after hours and even on weekends! She made this process smooth and easy. Thank you Kristine. My clients and I truly appreciate you and everything you have done!

Excellence!!!
When I came to Kristine for help, she was literally my last resort. I had lost my mom and grandma three months apart, and was under alot of stress. As the only heir... I still ended up needing to go to probate court. I had hired a paralegal who further complicated my case. Because of that, I was then forced to seek an attorney who quoted me 6 times the amount, and couldn't make me any guarantees. Finally, as a last resort, a friend referred me to Kristine... She was smart, calm, confident and very reassuring. She had a great understanding of the issue and quickly simplified my case. In addition to that, she was more than fair in her fees. She took such a load of stress off my daughter and I, I don't know what we would have done without her. I had been to court 4 times prior to resolve this matter... and she resolved it within 3 minutes before the judge. I recommend her highly and without a seconds hesitation. I am extremely grateful for her help!!!

Sight Unseen Long Distance Help
Kristine was recommended to me via the title company that was handling the title for my escrow. I wouldn't be able to close escrow without going through probate so I consulted with her over the phone and hired her. She was very helpful and professional. I would recommend Kristine if you are in need of some assistance regarding probate.

Thoughtful and Thorough
I am a client of Kristine Borgia for estate planning. She is a very thoughtful and thorough estate attorney. My experience was very positive even when discussing difficult topics, such as final wishes. She is tactful, has lots of experience with helping people with my particular set of life circumstances, and was able to accommodate my specific needs. She was very flexible when scheduling our meetings and simplified the planning process by giving easy-to-understand instructions. Kristine is great with email communication, which is convenient for those who frequently travel. I highly recommend Kristine for estate planning if you are a busy professional and are new to legal services.

Trust Matters
Kristine Borgia was our attorney handling the disposition of my father's trust. It was an overwhelming situation for us. She is very knowledgeable in the handling of trusts and handled all matters involved from start to finish. Not only does she know her business but showed true compassion through the whole process. She explained all the legal issues in ways that we understood and was always available if we needed any further work done. I would highly recommend her for these types of matters.

Great probate lawyer
Ms. Borgia was extremely knowledgeable and patient helping me with my probate case. She put in extra time creating an inventory of an extensive collection and dealing with complications selling a property.

Excellent remote probate handling
Kristine handled my mother's probate process for me in an efficient and painless and expeditious manner. It was extremely helpful to me that she was able to process the case in a completely remote manner so that I did not have to make multiple long trips up to Los Angeles from San Diego to deal with it. I greatly appreciated her professional, detail oriented, pleasant manner and demeanor was I highly recommend Kristine to anyone that might need similar services.

5 Star Attorney!
Kristine is one of those fantastic attorney's that you don't really believe are out there doing business, but hope they are! From the minute you talk to her, she makes you feel relaxed and her honesty and integrity come through with every word she speaks. She is friendly and personable so you feel like a friend is helping you with your legal issue instead of someone you hired. I give her a solid 5 stars and would recommend her for friends, family or clients!
