    Christie went beyond her way to help me out even though the prosecution and the CPS department lied like hell. I've noticed some attorney's lie their butts off like Amanda Coffey who first said one thing in court and then said another on a different court date. She had to defend me against Jennifer Hicks who couldn't even get her years straight to tried to build a character case. Christie was able to understand and even notice that they was lying and prepared herself for the BS that they was giving us in court. I would recommend her anytime you need a good attorney to represent you and your child as she is for the family not for the crooked system that's in Texas trying to steal kids for money which is going on everywhere in the world. Foster Parents should think about the kids and help keep the relationship with the parents instead of the money that they receive from the state. Being a Foster parent is a way of being a legal crook to steal kids and receive free money and services. Why doesn't the world focus on the illegal immigrants that don't have parents with citizenship being in foster care maybe our economy could be a little better and then we know that our welfare system is getting good use by providing the crooks (Foster Parents)with kids they can steal. Also Christie was affordable and didn't want my house, car, boat, or life to get the job done.

    I met her twice at Starbucks and Court...only. We filed for divorce. My case only went as far as filing TEMPORARY ORDERS and my husband and I reconciled. My husband didn't have an attorney. The fees just to go to court ONCE to file temporary orders are already over $5,000 dollars (Oh my husband did file discovery that he pulled online). Wow. Think twice .....Its truly might be more reasonable to go with an attorney with an actual location. One of the many problems was I assumed our first actual meeting was a consultation to go over matters. However, when I received bill I quickly realized it was not a consultation to go over issues re: case. It was just meeting with an attorney for Hours.....OMG just this one meeting was 250 per Hr....for a few HOURS. My advice to others - please keep your meetings short and stay on point. When you finally meet for the 1st time it is NOT considered a consultation you are being charged by the HOUR. It seems like if an attorney does not have an actual location .....fees can be unreasonable. My advice get ready to pay. Obviously not for the WORK as with my case we only went to court once ....it took her many hours to prepare Temporary Order etc., its the Hours claimed working on matters. Just sad

    Christie has been and invaluable ally for me in my Custody Agreement case. There are many options in terms of how my daughter's mother and I can handle the difficulties of communication and agreements and Christie has been very watchful of the options that can help us both without losing sight of what I want to accomplish in my relationship with my daughter. She has always been upfront about possible outcomes and costs and has always given me as clear a picture as possible. She handles the case herself and I don't need to get through a team to follow up on anything. Her legal assistant Jennifer Johnson has also been key in keeping all of us posted and I really feel I can depend on them both to help me out.

    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.

    Christie was my attorney for my divorce in Denton County, TX. My divorce was a little complicated because we owned property outside of the US. Our son was 17 and in his senior year of high school. Christie was great at reviewing all of our assets and debt and helping advise me the best way to divide up our estate. Christie also helped me with the best plan for my son too. The divorce was about 6 months and could have been very costly and much longer. With Christie's experience and honesty to me on what would work and wouldn't work, the divorce was quick, at a minimal cost and the division of assets and debt worked well for me. Isn't that the objective? Thank you Christie, you are awesome and I would highly recommend you! Thanks, Lynda :-)

    Christie was helping me with my divorce case in Dallas County. I contacted her last July, and by October my spouse and I had pretty much worked out our differences. She was on top of any developments and only contacted me when necessary as she understands what it's like to work and have a divorce cloud hanging over a marriage. For this I was definitely appreciative.

    I had a very lengthy and difficult divorce. There is no way I would have made it through without the help from Christie. She was very helpful and professional the whole way through the process. I was always able to talk to her when I had questions and she kept me updated on everything that was happening. In my opinion, there is no better attorney out there. I highly recommend her!

    I give Christie Phan a outstanding review becasue she accepted my divorce case a a short notice. I've spoken with a lot of attorney's and Christie really gave me a warm and comfortable feeling while taling to her. It was a feeling that she geniunely care about my concerns. No divorce is easy, as no one gets married to get a divorce. With Christie by my side I feel i can walk through this thing with my head held high. Stay tuned for updated reveiw.

    Christie had done an excellent job. My divorce case was dropped previously by another attorney, and Christie accepted my case the most urgent and critical time. She is a wonderful attorney and I am so lucky for having found her for my case!

    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 Christie

    Christie was very assuring and helpful in taking first steps to decide whether I needed or did not need an attorney. That is, she only had my best interests in mind. She provided detailed answers to all my questions and I appreciate her very much. My spouses attorney suggested I did not need an attorney but I do not necessarily agree with that and Christie was able to provide me the risk analysis information regarding how to make that decision. My final decision is still up in the air but if I choose to be represented, even for just advice (not for court related "war of the roses" which EVERYONE wants to avoid), there is no question, no doubt, that I would be in the best hands with Christie. I recommend her 100%. Let me also add that her rates are very affordable, which is very important in the midst of an impending divorce where already there will be financial challenges. Thanks Christie!

  • Virginia V. Aug 22, 2014
    I never understood much about the court system but after my experience in a 2 1/2 year custody battle ending in my favor, I now appreciate even more, the work an attorney does. Just when I thought it was over, it wasn't. I was now having to deal with an appeal and very close to giving up in finding one I could afford. I was very thankful when Christie agreed to take my case despite her limited experience with appeals. She took the time to review my case prior to our first meeting. Christie went above and beyond to work on my case and in the end WE WON! Christie immediately called me as soon as she was notified of the appeals court decision. The call that day was much appreciated. I definitely would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Christie!!

    The reason I chose Christie is she and I attended law school together and I remembered that she was a very good student in school. When I was deciding whom to choose to represent me in my divorce, I wanted to find someone who was not only knowledgeable about family law but also someone I could trust and give me the personal touch. When I found out that Christie was practicing family law, it was a no-brainer decision for me. She has kept in touch with me in a very timely manner, been very professional, and her fees are more than reasonable. I would highly recommend Christie for anyone needing a family law attorney.

    I had to put together my 1st Will. Christie was very professional and great to work with. She was prompt, available at all times and provided all the details needed. She listened and had an exceptional understanding of what I needed and was able to explain it concisely. I am very pleased with her service!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, I am always looking for opportunities to learn. Continuing Legal Education courses are a great way to learn more about a particular area of law. I have completed almost twice the amount of Continuing Legal Education I am required to have for the current year.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find an attorney you are comfortable with. An attorney that you think you can trust. One that will be an advocate for you. Chemistry is important, and the process may take longer than you anticipate. Try to find someone that you think will be there from beginning to end.
