Christina is absolutely amazing. She represented me in my DUI case and I couldn't have asked for better representation. She was always available to answer all my questions and she did so in a very kind and respectful manner. I would recommend Christina in a minute. Thank you so much Christina!

Christina helped me to get two misdemeanor charges dropped. She was very pleasant and communicative. If ever I had a question, she was never too busy to respond and explain. She was so helpful and very knowledgeable. Go see her!!

Christina Widner
Ms. Widner represented me in my DUI case and through her guidance, great knowledge of DUI cases/laws, and support, helped me win my case in court. She was helpful and communicative, took the time to answer all of my questions and walked me through the entire process. One of the things that drew me to choosing Ms. Widner as my attorney was that she was down to earth, realistic, and honest, and she proved to be all of those qualities in our time together working on my case. I would highly recommend Christina Widner for she is not only an excellent attorney who steered me on the right path in my case, but also a good person who will work with a client with integrity, honesty, and great knowledge of the entire DUI process.

Disorderly Conduct Dismissed!
Christina was my lawyer for a Disorderly Conduct charge, and she did a great job! She was on top of things from the get-gp. Attentive and responsive to my eager questions, she kept me in full confidence that she will do what she can to get the case dismissed. I was lucky to have found her on Avvo. She saved my career by getting this charge dismissed. Thank you!

She is already able to handle complex legal matters that are usually reserved for attorneys with many more years experience."
