Kristina is an excellent advisor and counselor. I come to her often for counsel on how to handle complex situations; her combination of legal prowess, intelligence and attention to detail has served me well. For example, recently I was dealing with a business contact who conducted fraud with me. I had never experienced fraud before and felt lost. She provided pragmatic advice on how to navigate the situation, saving me time, money and a lot of stress. I could not recommend Kristina more highly. - Technology Entrepreneur
