Kristy was able to step into an emotionally charged issue and help me through it. She is detail oriented and also able to see the bigger picture. This business of divorce and custody issues is never easy, yet she handles it with care and concern. She was always on top of emails and other communication and I knew what was going on with my case almost as quickly as Kristy found out herself. Highly recommend Kristy!!!

Procedural Court Order
I recently hired Ms. Blurton to handle my interests in an uncontested case. While my order was fairly procedural did not require a lawyer, I thought it best to make sure that a professional handled everything and nothing was missed on the documentation that would cause a delay.
I could not be happier with my decision to have Ms. Blurton represent me! She made the entire processes go smoothly and kept me informed every step of the way. She was extremely flexible with my travel schedule and was happy to correspond strictly via email / phone as in-person meetings would be hard for me accommodate. Kristy handled everything with minimal disruption and all that was required of me was to show up in court on an agreed upon date. She briefed me on what to expect, what to say, and even went above to let me know what my next steps are after the court phase.
Beyond being a highly skilled and extremely knowledgable lawyer, Kristy exhibits a rare vesting in her clients that puts you at ease about knowing that your case will be handled fully, professionally, and right the first time.
Thanks you, Kristy for all your hard work, for your flexibility in working with my travel schedule, for handling my case with such expertise, and most importantly, making the entire process easy!
