Great experience working through divorce mediation
Kristina was great to work with through our divorce mediation. They showed care and solid knowledge of what to expect from the court filing our paperwork. We were able to quickly move through the process and she communicated clearly throughout. Highly recommend Kristina for any of your legal needs.

Amazing, caring, and trustworthy
I hired Kristina when leaving a domestic violence marriage with a baby and I've never felt more supported than by her! She was extremely considerate, kind, did not push anything onto me, and made sure I understood 100% of everything going on. She was not judgemental and she gave wonderful advice and if she didn't know an answer off the top of her head she let me know and she went out of her way to get the knowledge. Kristina was someone I could talk to easily and was so friendly and professional and always made sure to get back to my emails very quickly. She is my #1 suggestion to anyone needing her type of service!

Great experience
I was in need of creating a first-time Parenting Plan for my 10-yr old son. His mother & I were never married, and have not been together for several years. It had become apparent recently that my son was no longer safe with her so I set about trying to change that. I initially contacted Kristina for a consultation and found her advice to be just what I needed. She was very thorough in her explanation of the steps it would involve, how the court would be involved, etc. After talking with her I felt I would be in good and knowledgeable hands. As I write this, the Parenting Plan has already become a final order and I was granted every request. Kristina and her WONDERFUL(!) paralegal, Melinda, guided me and kept me informed at every step. They were a great team working on my behalf

Very Unhelpful and Unreliable
She is very inexperienced and unhelpful. Most importantly, she provided me with materially false information and coerced me to sign something that was not in my interest and not what all parties agreed to at a joint meeting. She had a duty to resolve the issue, do what she promised to do, and put in writing what all parties agreed to at a joint meeting. Yet, she failed to do her duty. I had no idea that signing what she told me to sign under the threat of withdrawal was modifying parenting plan. A normal process of modifying a parenting plan would take at least 13 months and with significant burden of proof by the party who wants to modify it. Yet, she just told me to sign something that was actually giving up my right, and she did not even tell me that. I thought it was a temporary thing. In summary, she is inexperienced, unreliable, extremely weak, unconscientious, not a good advocate for whom she is supposed to be paid for representing. She just let the other party dictate everything and told me to obey. I was hesitate to hire her at first. But her boss told me he would be providing supervision. But he did not; he sold me a lemon. Do not be fooled by her or her boss. Stay away. I had to hire another attorney to clean up the mess she created. I was able to achieve my goal with another attorney. So, save yourself time, resources and headache and stay away from her.

Due to professional obligations of confidentiality, I cannot comment on the specifics of this case. I can, however, say that I always strive to do my best work for each client, and even still, misunderstandings and differences of opinion may arise. Not every attorney is a good fit for every client. It is my hope that this client found what they needed elsewhere, and I wish them well in their journey.
