You MIGHT NOT need to hire 2 attorneys to litigate your MN divorce or custody case.  

Christie Lea Thompson of ChristieLegal, a MN family law (divorce and custody) mediator and paralegal, can help folks with simple to moderately complex divorce and custody cases with much less conflict and at least 150% less cost than hiring 2 attorneys and battling it out and in at least 6 months less time in the case process.

Hiring ChristieLegal reduces conflict in your life since her goal is for both parties to work together to reach agreements, instead of both parties hiring separate attorneys and exchanging documents and asking questions of each other through attorneys to hopefully reach a settlement agreement.

Hiring ChristieLegal reduces the cost of a divorce or custody case by tens of thousands of dollars compared to hiring attorneys because she charges $125 per hour, whereas attorneys charge $200 to $550 per hour, the parties will need to hire 2 attorneys (1 attorney per person), and the process is highly likely to be much quicker since she encourages the parties to reach agreements and streamlines the case process.

In addition, she offers a 20% discount to her heroes – military members, law enforcement and corrections officers, firefighters, EMTs, teachers, psychologists, social workers, and veterans of all of those careers, and moderate-income folks (earn less than $40k per year), and a 10% discount to manual labor workers (her landscaping project has kicked her ass this summer!).

Plus, ChristieLegal’s down payment is smaller at $1,000 to $2,000, depending upon the complexity of the case, whereas attorneys’ retainer fees are $2,500 to $5,000.

  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 listened to him tell me about his situation for at least 10 minutes. I explained what he must do to accomplish his custody and termination of parental rights goals and answered several of his questions. I stated that the situation is too complicated for me as a paralegal and why. Lastly, I referred him to an attorney who’s not only high-quality, 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.
