A highly ethical advocate, Christine is able to articulate both sides of an argument in order to provide her clients the full scope of the case before them. My case was complex, and conducted while I lived 1300 miles away. Christine represented my interests aggressively, and communicated in such a way that I never felt 'remote'. I witnessed her on more than one occasion step up to opposing counsel and easily hold her own, yet never appear unprofessional. She is emotionally intelligent and legally savvy. While it is unfortunate to have need of an attorney, I can highly recommend Christine Albano for your family law cases. -Angie Roman "I hired Christine Albano to represent me in a family law matter.
