Excellent - picked up things the other lawyer missed in divorce agreement.Mar 8, 2017Verified
I REALLY like this attorney. She took on a tough tangled up case against 2 paternal rights lawyers and used everything she had in her arsenal to fight. She’s really smart and handled my case carefully. She got a divorce while she went to law school so her profession is especially close to her heart. Unfortunately after two temporary hearing court cases and starting a new life just after the holidays from basically a stay at home mom of an 8yr old and 2 yr old and an infant I couldn’t keep up with the financial demands of her fees and supporting myself with two part time jobs. The debt I owe her will be more than the invoice I eventually will pay off and will be HAPPY to send her every dollar. I will recommend to anyone looking for someone to think outside the box of the law and have her fight for you. She’s calm , she’s confident, and she’s a no bullshitter.Mar 28, 2019Verified
Family Law Attorney
Christie helped me with every aspect of my child custody modification case. As a male trying to get primary I thought it would be nearly impossible. Christie took all the facts and was able to get a hearing set as well as temporary orders put in place. She ultimately worked to have everything settled without a hearing. I have worked with a lawyer in the past through a divorce and I would most definitely say she was more reasonable and was eager to help me with any concerns with my case and did a great job of getting back to me when I had questions. Thanks ChristieOct 17, 2014Verified
I hired Christie Phan as a family law attorney around the end of 2016 to assist with a couple of things: 1. Getting more time with my then six-year old daughter. 2. Prevent my ex-wife from taking my daughter out of state. When I divorced six-years ago, I let my now ex-wife dictate the terms and we went to mediation performed by a lawyer of her choosing. She was granted primary custodial parent and was to receive monthly child support. I, like many fathers, just assumed this was the way it was supposed to be so I didn’t fight it. I did not realize at the time that this was not necessarily the case. Things actually went pretty well for the next five or so years with me being allowed to see my daughter pretty much whenever I wanted. Then my ex-wife and her family (most live here in North Texas) came up with the idea that she and my daughter should move out of state to TN where her sister’s family lives. Granted, I have no family here in TX other than my daughter but I’ve been living here since 2005. I also have no family in TN so picking up my life here to move there was of no benefit to anyone other than my ex-wife. This is why I sought out an attorney as I really did not want to restart my life and move just because my ex-wife wanted to. So around the end of 2016, I felt it best if I filed for joint custody with a 50/50 split. As you can imagine, the freedom to see my daughter whenever I wanted was completely shut down. I interviewed several lawyers before choosing Christie. Why did I choose Christie? I felt she gave me the most realistic scenarios as to what outcomes to expect. The other lawyers told me what they thought I wanted to hear, more in the line of trying to win my business. So choosing Christie to represent my case was more about trust than anything else. Throughout the process Christie was empathetic to my needs; she’s detail oriented and kept me informed on what was going on and what I needed to do on my end. We ended up not going to court and going to mediation in July 2017 (requested the day before the court hearing by my ex-wife’s lawyer), this time with me being represented by Christie instead of allowing my ex-wife total control. I ended up getting my daughter for roughly an additional 2-weeks each year (pretty much get her all summer) which was a solid victory considering it’s difficult to change the original court orders unless something drastic has happened (which Christie pointed out to me in our initial interview). As far as moving to TN, we put in a provisional clause that if my ex-wife still wanted to move to TN with my daughter, I would accept if I gained 50/50 custody of my daughter and not have to pay child support (which I planned on using as a college savings fund for my daughter). I’d definitely recommend Christie Phan to anyone looking for a family law attorney. She’s thorough, answers questions/concerns in a timely manner, and will work every advantage to help you meet your goals. Her honesty stood out to me; it shows she cares about her clients and does not want to mislead them with improbable outcomes.Nov 15, 2018
Christie accepted my case on a short notice. She was totally understanding of my desires and needs in my divorce case. Although my husband and I were able to reconcile our differences and continue our marriage. Christie handle everything down to the Order Granting Nonsuit. If things were to turn for the worst in the future I wouldn't hesitate to pick up the phone to hire her again to represent me. I could tell that she was going to give the opposing attorney a run for her money. Thanks again Christie for all your support.Jul 3, 2015Verified
