Client Testimonials

“When my now ex-spouse initiated separation, I felt helpless and overwhelmed navigating the legal system. Christy Zlatkus came into my life at the perfect time, and she guided me through the various obstacles that I encountered through divorce and [child] custody proceedings that lasted nearly two years. She was incredibly professional, knowledgeable, invaluable, and a pivotal force in starting this new and now positive chapter of my life. I’m grateful for her representation and would recommend her to any friends or family going through difficult times.”

"I am so incredibly grateful for all of the hard work you have put into my case, in addition to being so personable and helpful when it came to the emotional aspect of it all. You’ve helped me through overcoming some awful trauma, and somehow have had an uncanny way of knowing and understanding exactly everything I feel and want as an outcome in this situation. I’ve already recommended your services to a few friends of mine and will continue to do so. I hope you are doing well - you are always in my thoughts! Keep up the great work."

"Christy's professionalism, fierce intelligence, dedication to her craft, and no BS way of walking me through what each step of the divorce process will look like has given me courage and strength to stand strong against a very toxic ex. My child and I have a brighter future thanks to her guidance. I am especially grateful for her no-nonsense talk at the beginning, when she told me no sane person would attempt to perform surgery on themselves, and that trying to do my case with limited counsel to 'save' money would cost me loads more in the long run, as I would have to pay an attorney to fix mistakes I would make on my own. I am so grateful I took that advice, as well as all her other guidance. I've been able to compartmentalize my ex's behavior, leaning into the mantra she gave me at the outset: 'Not my problem, talk to my attorney.' I am able to focus on forging a new life for myself, knowing that she's got my back and is looking out for my legal interests.
Over the past few months I've found myself repeating her insight as a personal affirmation: 'This will be the worst year of your life, but you can get through it.'
Thanks to her help, I am."

"When I met Christy, I was overcome with anger. My emotions were at heights I’ve never experienced. This situation I was going through was one of disbelief, but in hindsight I find it difficult be shocked. It was an extremely painful experience. However, as the custody battle forged forward, Christy understood and respected my views. Her leveled head and professionalism kept me and my emotions grounded. She understood the evident strong connection I had with my son and created her representation around it. She provided a platform for my voice to be clear and powerful in the courtroom. Christy gets it. She listens. She’s articulate. She knows her craft. Her organization is out of this world. Alongside her paralegal, Megan, they were a formidable force. I’m glad they were on my side. Christy is passionate about serving her clients. She believes in fairness and she works hard on your behalf. She doesn’t deal with gimmicks or undermining or underhanded techniques to get the job done. She’s respectful of your time and your situation. She has a spirit about her that encourages you to uplift yourself even though you’re experiencing a difficult time. When I first sat down with her, I was a raging wreck. Concluding our conversation, my immediate thought was...”Let me hurry up and get Ms. Christy her retainer!” I didn’t understand how, but I left her office knowing that the odds where going to be in my favor. I consider Christy a vital representative of my family’s dynamic and one whom has my loyalty. I can not say enough about Christy’s abilities to perform her craft or her as a person. It was by chance I stumbled upon her and I’m glad I did. I owe her an enormous amount of gratitude for what she’s done for me. Thank you Christy!"
