Excellent outcome
Kristin and her skillful staff were successful in obtaining a settlement well above my expectations. Everyone in the office was courteous, professional and knowledgeable. Emails and phone calls were promptly returned. Kristin and her exceptional paralegal assistant proposed several brilliant strategies along the way, resulting in a positive financial outcome for me. In addition to Kristin's legal proficiency, I benefited from the atmosphere of encouragement and compassion I experienced during some very dark days.

Professional and Knowledgeable Court Winning Attorney
I retained Kristin Long to assist with obtaining a restraining order against a family member after years of harassment, verbal abuse, and physical confrontations. Through her continued efforts over a 4 year period, the restraining order was made permanent in 2019. Kristin's guidance was clear and effective. She kindly helped us separate our emotions and personal issues from the task of putting together an effective strategy to win the judgement. At trial, Kristin brought to court 100s of documents including testimonies, and pertinent background information, in addition to securing witnesses critical to presenting and winning our case. We went to trial twice and won twice. Kristin at all times had the utmost respect and consideration for the emotional aspects, and difficulties for myself and family during the process. I highly recommend Kristin Long.

Kristin Long, a great attorney
I hired Kristin Long on a Restraining order for Domestic Violence and Child Custody case. She made me feel comfortable and made this process easier to go through by being compassionate and patient to my situation. She was extremely knowledgeable. Her skills in the court room were beyond great. She was honest with my strengths and weaknesses of my case and made sure that the outcome was beneficial to my child and I. She is such a hard working lawyer and she took time to spend with me on everything when it came to my case. I'm forever thankful for Kristin because she fought for my child and I and made sure our safety came first. Kristin Long, you are amazing. Thank you!

Consumate Professional
I hired Kristin Long to defend me against a frivolous restraining order. She not only knows her way around the law and the courts, she also possesses an invaluable understanding of human nature and social situations that made all the difference in handling my case. She is accessible, friendly, reliable, and she brings a feeling of ease into what would otherwise be an unpleasant situation. She successfully negotiated an informal agreement that satisfied both me and the plaintiff. Kristin Long is an exceptional attorney, a consummate professional, and a real, decent human being. I highly recommend her.

Excellent attorney
I am an attorney who had the pleasure of working together with Kristin on a family law matter recently. Kristin is patient, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Our case was very high conflict; she helped to resolve problems in a calm and professional manner. I was impressed with Kristin's knowledge of family law and her demeanor in court. Kristin is also quite humble and always focused on the client's needs. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a family law attorney in the Santa Cruz area.

Highly recommended family lawyer
Kristin is an excellent attorney who assisted me throughout the entire process of my divorce (dissolution of registered domestic partnership.) My case was complicated by domestic violence, restraining order, child custody and child support. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable, current, and ethical in every aspect. Kristin was able to gather the information, educate/inform me of the laws, and give recommendations. She always allowed me to make every decision on how I wanted to proceed through the case. I especially appreciated her concern for the well being of my children.

Knowledgeable, great follow through, achieves best result
I contacted Ms. Long to assist me with a complicated legal matter. She responded immediately to telephone calls and emails. Her approach was to review the relevant history, meet , and consider all alternatives. Her explanations, analysis, and performance in and out of court were truly wonderful. At all times she kept me updated and on track in terms of providing the information that she needed on a timely basis. I would highly recommend Ms. Long to competently and efficiently handle legal matters.

Divorce - Child custody and support
Kristin is an exceptionally knowledgeable attorney and she provides excellent advice and counsel. She stays abreast of new and developing cases that may have an effect on the outcome. She also has a very calm approach. I have found her to be very responsive, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. She is a great advocate and has kept my best interests and my child's at the forefront throughout this process.

Hire Someone Else
Ms. Long was without a doubt the most stressful part of the experience of my divorce. She took my money then proceeded to ignore me for a month. When I finally threatened to fire her she filed the paperwork I had supplied then proceeded to ignore me again. She ignored me for so long that my ex and I decided to muddle through on our own. Then when I did fire her she quickly sent me a mostly cut and paste divorce settlement agreement that was largely incorrect (with the word DRAFT all over it so i couldn't file it) and billed me more than my remaining retainer amount. Save your money and go with someone else.

Response from Kristin Long September 23, 2021
I am sorry for the bad experience you had with our firm. I understand that divorce proceedings can take longer than hoped and be a frustrating process. Unfortunately, the law requires a six month waiting period before a divorce can be finalized. You are welcome to contact me directly to discuss your specific concerns about your case.
