I asked Christine to assist me with what started out as (what I thought was) a traffic ticket for my grandson. Unfortunately, I didn't read the "fine print" and when she got the police report and the actual citation, turns out there was a criminal charge also. In spite of changing situations and our being on a tight schedule due to school and summer commitments, Christine was able to navigate several issues all at once. The result was only one trip to court, instead of two, and a very positive outcome for a young man who is able to move on with his summer plans after learning several important lessons. Christine always articulated all possible outcomes, both best-case scenario and worst-case, and kept me informed of the steps she was taking through the process. The outcome definitely fell in the "best-case scenario" class. I would not hesitate to recommend Christine for any legal issues as she not only knows the law, she knows the people and processes locally to make navigating the legal system much less intimidating.

I would recommend this attorney to anyone I know. I received a reckless driving ticket and she was able to dismiss my charges, as well as settling the case so I wouldn't have anything on my record. She is genuine, professional, and was always there whenever I needed assistance or had any questions. You don't have to look any further for a better criminal defense attorney, because she is the one you should give a call to.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. In working together on a juvenile defense case, she was hardworking and dedicated. She truly fights for her clients and cares about the outcome and about what's best for her clients. You can't go wrong with Christine as your attorney.
