McMurdie Law Office

McMurdie Law Office consistently provides exceptional family law representation and mediation since 1995. Our firm’s cutting edge focus, in recognition of the new economy, provides expert conflict resolution and limited scope representation, making professional legal support affordable. Our lead attorney, Cristi McMurdie possesses a passion to help families resolve their conflict at the table and keep them out of the court room unless it is absolutely necessary.

Expert Services Offered

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.


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.

Exceptional family law representation and mediation since 1995.
