Happy Clients

"Chrissy is accessible, knowledgeable and prompt. We waited nearly eighteen difficult months to be able to adopt our son. Chrissy's professionalism and expertise helped to make that final stage a celebration. Chrissy was also easy to reach months later when I had questions about the birth certificate."
