Amazing support
Christina has been an immense help to my partner and I through a very high conflict personality parenting case. She has been out "lawyer mom" and walked us through every step. Her knowledge and expertise in family law is undeniable. I would recommend Christina to anyone dealing with any type of difficult dispute

Christina and her team have been an incredible support system through very difficult time. She has a huge amount of compassion and understanding and very knowledgable on what works and what does not! I am very grateful for her courtroom presentation and willingness to fight for my children! I would recommend Christina for any of your family court matters.

Outstanding lawyer, so personable, shatters stereotypical stuffy lawyer reputation. From the moment I began working with Christina I knew she was the kind of person who is honest, looks you straight in the eye, kind and listens as well as offers extremely good advice. My friend recommended her and he could not say enough about her. Nobody likes to have to go to court, write wills, or deal with difficult law issues, but if you do, you should contact Christina.
