Christine represented me through a complicated divorce case involving multiple young children. From the beginning, until ultimate resolution, Christine excelled in every area that mattered. She possesses an uncommon level of dedication, commitment, and knowledge of applicable law. In my experience, her honesty and candour starkly distinguish her from many others in the field.
Christine has rightly earned the respect of both her clients, colleagues and opposing parties through consistent pursuit of fairness on behalf of those she represents coupled with hard work, drive and an uncommon level of self-accountability.
Through effectively listening she captures her client’s goals and pairs them alongside her successful previous experiences and concisely communicates to achieve the desired end state.
A broad history of real-world experience, and the manner in which she engaged with others throughout those experiences, have resulted an extensive book of meaningful contacts and relationships that can only strengthen the position of those she represents.
Perhaps the story of how I was referred to her might tell it best: A trusted friend pointed me to a respected lawyer on learning of the circumstances involved in my case…but one who did not practice in the state where my case was filed. I contacted the reference, provided a brief overview of my case, and asked that they recommend an attorney that was admitted in the state of my filing. Without hesitation, a single name was provided.‘Christine DeBernardis’ he said. Assuming this was the first of multiple names I patiently sat silent on the phone waiting. When I was met with silence, I replied ‘Are there names of others you could strongly recommend?’ ‘No’ was their reply. It was both succinct and telling. I now understand what they already knew then. In writing this I am now passing along to you the same advice I was received.
