professional and compassionate
In April 2011 I found myself in unfamiliar territory as my husband walked out on myself and my 3 year old daughter. I needed to find out what my rights were concerning myself but more importantly my daughter. I was referred to Cristi from a longtime family friend and we instantly connected and I knew that I could trust her to protect my family. Not only did she explain the law and my rights she gave me advise that I use on a daily basis. Cristi told me, " How you handle your divorce will pave the path for your future. If you start fighting with him will always fight." I took that advise very seriously and still use it today. My divorce has been finalized for 3 years and my ex-husband and I have a peaceful relationship and we co-parent extremely well. I have realized that I LOVE my daughter MORE than I dislike my ex-husband and I have come to peace with the fact that some things are out of our control. I highly recommend Cristi for any legal needs that may come up!!

Cristi has helped me through some of the toughest times of my life. As a young new mother going through a divorce I was petrified about court proceedings. Cristi's compassion and knowledge put me at ease. Cristi fought hard for my case and we secured everything we wanted! Years later Cristi still reaches out to me asking for updates. I whole heartedly recommend Cristi! Her work is unmatched by any other attorney in the area! She is honest, caring, and hardworking!

If you have to get divorced, this was the least painful way to go.
Cristi and her staff were very helpful and worked with us to reach an equal division of assets and debts, helping us come up with some creative solutions to keep things simple and most asset-preserving for both of us. I would have given 5 stars, but the initial draft of the consent decree draft had a few more errors than I expected. The staff fixed the obvious errors without charge, so if I could give 4.5, I would have. I would recommend Cristi and her staff to assist with a friend's divorce proceeding. It was very nice to not have to each have separate representation, but instead one knowledgeable person who was impartial.

Compassion for Mediation
Over Two years ago i sought out for council to represent me in a custody case with my children's father. We had a few sensitive issues with our case that required someone who was well versed in Family Law and had previous experience with special needs families. Cristi Mc Murdie was the perfect choice for that role . I met with Cristi on many occasions before our court hearing . The first day in court she corrected many errors a previous lawyer had made with our previous parenting plan . The judge ruled that the father and I needed to go to a court appointed mediator and a blah blah . Unfortunately no negotiations were made on either occasion which lead us to going in front of a judge for another hearing . Cristi exceeded my expectation her commitment to Due diligence regarding our case . As months went on she really understood both sides of our case and knew this was something we could come to an agreement with her help out of court . We made an appointment to meet in her office with the father . She created an even playing field for both sides. She was able to create an atmosphere that was safe and she was determined to make sure we were both heard . With Cristi's legal experience and knowledge she was able to tell us what was appropriate to the courts which made it easier to come to agreements with realistic goals to our parenting plan arrangements . I am happy to say at the end of that day I felt such a relief and felt confident in the parenting plan decisions we made that day . It has been almost two years and we are still following the guidelines placed that day . The father and I are able to communicate more efficient and have the best interest to heart, which is what is best for the children. Cristi's compassion for mediation diffused the stress and anxiety that came along in my situation.

Heather, Thank you so much for your thorough and descriptive review of your case. It was such a pleasure to represent such a devoted mother and someone who was willing to grow through the process to the point now, that you can reach agreements through reasonable negotiations on your own. I am proud of the work we did in your case and even more proud of where your family has come, working together as co-parents of your two wonderful children. We are here if you ever need us and please let others know who you care about when they have legal family challenges.

High quality service, honest and caring
Cristi McMurdie is extremely knowledgeable in many facets of the law. My experience with her has been that she truly cares about the people that come to her for help and she strives to achieve the best possible outcome for all parties in mediation. She helped us finalize our divorce at a fraction of the cost of attorneys, and got the job done in a much shorter time frame. I wish we both had begun working with her much sooner, it would have saved us so much time and frustration. Even if you and your spouse have a hard time being in the same room together, I would highly encourage you to give Cristi a shot at helping...she is truly talented at what she does.
