About Kristine

Learn Kristine’s areas of practice.

My experience has provided me a wide array of knowledge that enables me to provide high quality representation to clients. I will ensure each client gets the focused attention to which he or she is entitled and work to resolve cases as expeditiously as possible.
I have extensive expertise with law & motion practice, often appearing in court multiple times per week. My trial experience includes child custody and visitation, property division, contempt, date of separation, and prenuptial agreement validity. I have also represented domestic violence survivors in over 100 domestic violence hearings, many of which have been contested trials.
In addition, my knowledge and skills allows me to handle stepparent adoptions, name changes, and gender marker changes.

Kristine was recommended to me from another trusted attorney. I was very pleased with the professional legal representation that Kristine provided in my difficult case. Kris demonstrated understanding, compassion, and was responsive to addressing my legal needs. I found Kris’s fees to be competitive and well worth the value received. I highly recommend her.

Unreachable after she obtains your high retainer fee
Do not hire her. She was all smiles and fake until I gave her my $15,000 retainer fee and then she turned into another person. This was an abusive marriage I was getting out of, I was already anxious and miserable and scared. She made a heartbreaking experience a million times worse than it had to be. Don’t hire her. I had to contact the state bar in order for her to give me the final bill which was almost the entire retainer fee. She was a nightmare to work with and I now know that I would have had a better outcome if I represented myself.
