Tristen was a perfect match for me. When I finally realized I couldn't manage my divorce alone an I needed an advocate, I met with several attorneys, but I could tell I was going to choose Tristen within minutes of meeting her.
Because my ex was not being reasonable, I needed someone knowledgeable to educate me on my options. I was lost in all of the confusion of my separation, legal procedures, financial issues, and how to be able to get time with my children.
Teisten squared me away on all of those things and have me excellent advice all te way around and at every step. She nudged me along when I needed the nudging and really cared about me as a person, father, client.
As good as Tristen is at advice and support and knowledge of family and Divorce law, she really impressed me in the courtroom. Her presentation was precise, her rebuttals were quick and direct. She has a good rapport with the judge. She is very sharp and is a "rock star" in the courtroom.
Tristen bills accurately and works very efficiently in my opinion with procedure and opposing counsel.
She got me trough a long and very difficult mediation of which I was pleased with the outcome.
As a side note, I have dealt with the other partners in her office when needed and they too are all very professional and knowledgable and quick with responses.
There's no way I would be where I am at today without Tristen as my advocate.

Does your spouse expect to get it all in a divorce you didn’t want? Do you expect to lose because he, or she, has superior resources? Do things look hopeless?
I found myself in a position where I was given Power of Attorney for an individual whose spouse decided that this was the perfect time to take her mate to the cleaners and filed for divorce. Tristen Key simply did not let that happen. She was our savior! Tristen was fair, but absolutely did not let anyone push us around. She obtained the results we wished for and, she was reasonable too.
I now consider her a friend that I respect and admire and heartily recommend Tristen to help you with family law issues that you may have.

I was diagnosed with bipolar after an incident and was for the most part unable to participate in my wife's, a nurse, request for a divorce. Tristen worked with 2 of my sisters to accomplish the unbelievably favorable result. What is for most people going above and beyond is second nature to Tristen. What people say to me in conversation can have a profound effect. She was naturally cordial and complimentary.
Lara Dethlefs, Divorce and separation Attorney
I highly recommend Tristen to anyone needing legal representation in the family-law arena. Tristen's vast experience allows her to give practical and strategic advice. She is a fast-thinker and is excellent in court. She has compassion for her clients as she guides them through what can be a very difficult process.
