What we Do

Exceptional Family Law Representation and Mediation

mediation and divorce attorney

Mediation

We provide neutral facilitation to enable both parties to reach agreements. We provide legal information and options during mediation that builds your confidence to finalize your case. We work with parties who have attorneys and parties who do not have attorneys. We can provide you your final documents such as parenting plans, consent decrees, stipulated property settlement agreements, and stipulated modifications.

Collaborative Law

Collaborative Practice is a newer divorce model for people to be “fully-resourced” to resolve family legal disputes and stay out of court. The Collaborative Process is self-determined, group-scheduled, private, customized and efficient. With the help of your hand-chosen collaborative team, you will meet with your team to resolve all the issues in your family case – outside of court.

Full Representation

If we are retained for full representation, we recommend the issues for your case, detail them in the pleadings and documents that we file on your behalf, go to court for and with you, build your evidence and proof you need by demanding discovery and serving subpoenas, do all the negotiating and present you all offers and finally write all final documents.

Limited Scope

Our innovative office provides advice and counsel and review of your documents that either you prepare or that we prepare for you in your name, while you represent yourself, which saves you attorney fees. In our new economy this service has proven to be very beneficial to many clients who otherwise would have no professional legal guidance.

I was referred to six different lawyers, but Cristi McMurdie stood out from the rest. In the initial consultation I knew I wanted to proceed with her. She just “got me”. She is empathetic and understanding, but also realistic and tells you like it is. It was refreshing to work with her because I knew she would always tell me the truth. She negotiated the best case scenario settlement for me, and I couldn’t be more relieved. I highly recommend Cristi!

Cecily R

Cristi is a wonderful attorney! She is pleasant and kind as a person and a pit bull in the courtroom. Her knowledge pertaining to child custody cases is extensive. This was a long process but Cristi was vital in getting our grandchildren awarded to us…we couldn’t be happier.

Regina F

Attorney Cristi McMurdie is both strategic and compassionate. This is a rare combination for family law. She knows how to guide you away from acting on senseless emotion, and towards solutions that improve your uncoupling process so you can find peace in your new adventure.

John Sabo, CEO, Future H20-B

I had the esteemed pleasure of being referred to the capable hands of Cristi McMurdie by an attorney whom I hold in high regard. With her exceptional skills and unwavering dedication, Cristi ensured that my father’s rights were fully restored, leaving me with nothing but gratitude for her remarkable service.
