  1. Called this person and she immediately simply recommended me to an attorney….LOL… Not much help considering how many times she mentions helping people on her website…

    • It is a gross mischaracterization to state that I immediately recommended this prospective client to an attorney. I talked to him via phone for 10 minutes to make sure that I understood the situation. I explained what he must do to accomplish his custody and termination of parental rights goals and answered several questions. I stated that the situation is too complicated for me and referred him to an attorney. I cannot handle every family law case since I’m a paralegal, not an attorney. I did what was in his best interest. In addition, I helped him by referring him to an attorney who’s not only respected, but also offers low-income clients a sliding scale fee.

    • A true professional understands their scope of practice and provides referrals if someone else is best suited to the needs of that person. Christie provides an honest consultation, in the best interest of the potential client.
