I had consulted with three family law attorneys before retaining Elizabeth Christy's office. Elizabeth communicates thoughtfully, clearly and timely. I never had to follow up on a question I had or a matter she was to handle.
In my divorce case, the other party, along with her attorney, was fairly difficult in my opinion, often making unsubstantiated claims and misrepresenting facts within the documents they were submitting to us and the court. To make matters harder on us I made a mistake and got a DUI during this time which was often used to characterize me in an unfavorable way. Though, with no judgement or hesitation, Elizabeth continued to draft and submit replies in response to the other parties claims and they were very clear and factual. At one point the court even awarded us $2,500 in attorney fees as a direct result of Elizabeth’s ability to stick to the facts and present them clearly and favorably to our side.
Elizabeth’s fees were very transparent and I received monthly statements showing what work was done, how much time was committed to each task and a total amount due. Not once did I feel the need to question her billing practices.
Without describing in detail every aspect, in the end our settlement resulted in 50/50 parenting time with my child and the asset allocation was more beneficial to me than I expected. I would not hesitate to retain Elizabeth again in the future.
