WHAT WE DOBOOK A CONSULT

From Our Clients

Kristen got me a great outcome. Kristen walked me through the entire legal process and gave me a timeline of events that would occur during my case. She was very detailed and did a wonderful job negotiating my needs during mediation.  I really appreciated all of her hard work and communication I felt very comfortable/protected with her representation.

Anne

Donna-Marie has represented me twice; once when my car was stolen and recently with my divorce. My ex-wife turned a simple divorce into a mess. When dealing with an unnecessarily difficult lawyer on the opposing side, Donna-Marie was very professional, courteous, and respectful. She understood my fair position and managed to keep my focus on the important points despite several baseless lies from my ex-wife. I received everything I wanted plus more with her help. I would highly recommend her.

M S

Going through a child custody trial is extremely stressful and emotional. Kristen is extremely knowledgeable and organized. She represents her clients professionally, she’s respectful in the court room, and is well respected by colleagues. She won our custody case, but if we would have lost I would still feel happy that we hired her. I can’t recommend her enough!
