Family and Probate Litigation Attorney
Kristi was admitted to the Oregon State Bar in 2020 and has been practicing family law ever since. Her litigation experience includes custody disputes, enforcement of parenting time, modifications, asset division and debt allocation issues, a variety of support and other related family law issues, and contested probate matters. She gained much of her experience working for a non-profit representing low income and underrepresented populations, as well as other small family law and estate planning firms.
Kristi is incredibly passionate about promoting the parent-child relationship and helping clients receive their fair share when dissolving their marriage. She carefully assesses each unique client’s situation to help strategize for their best possible outcome. She works respectfully and collaboratively with opposing counsel to help clients negotiate agreements and avoid litigation whenever possible, but will aggressively advocate for clients in court when settlement is not possible.
When she isn’t practicing law, Kristi enjoys playing and composing music, spending time with her husband and three chihuahuas, hiking, and exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Kristi is an active member of the Family Law Executive Committee for the family law section of the Oregon State Bar. Kristi also provides low income legal services through a community based outreach program for community members whose cases involve domestic violence.
