already been with me for most of his life and I needed the legal grounds to make the necessary decisions best for him. She dressed and conducted herself before the judge in a professional manner. I would hire her if I ever needed help in another legal matter. I would recommend her to friend or stranger. You can’t go wrong if you’re looking for a good attorney.


Kris took her time with me and will answer any and every question with honesty. She truly cares about her clients and will go to the end of the Earth for them. She has a soft spot for children and works hard to ensure that the best interest of the child is taken care of and acknowledged. Hands down the best!!

fact that she was very upfront with me and walked me through every available option that was given. She was also very responsive to my calls/emails if I ever had any questions or concerns. But above all, Kris is an amazingly gifted attorney and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding Family Law attorney.
