When my ex filed for divorce, just prior to the Thanksgiving Holidays, it came as quite a shock how methodically she and her entourage of lawyers, counselors and "others" had looted assets, slandered my name, and prepared to literally take me to the cleaners. While my marriage had been in trouble for years, I really didn't want a divorce. Fortunately, a dear friend in Austin, who is quite skilled at finding good people in the legal field, recommended Trusler and Associates. When I met Cristi Trusler for the first time,she had cancelled a holiday trip to meet with me. After speaking with her, my mind was set at ease. This was a law firm with folks who were honest, ethical, smart, shrewd and tough. As a result of letting her handle my case, I was able to keep all of my retirement(s), get a rather equitable property settlement, get on with my life, and keep my sanity. While other attorneys would have tried to or at least would have responded to another attorneys efforts to "ratchet up" the acrimony in a divorce to get it into court where both parties could spend tens of thousands of dollars, Cristi's tough, calm and common sense approach allowed me to keep control of things. In the end, the costs of my divorce was at least an order of magnitude less than my ex's expenses, while the quality of the legal advice and service I got was nothing short of outstanding. When I told a friend of mine who is also an attorney about the details of my divorce settlement, that attorney remarked that "what your lawyer did for you is nothing short of a miracle"..
Pros: The attorneys, staff, and the ethical, and the way they look after their clients
Cons: There aren't more law firms like Trusler and Associates
