Testimonials for Christina Lana Shine, Esq.

Christina is the consummate professional who practices law. She explained the process of divorce, NY state divorce law, and divorce court in a clear and concise manner that allowed us to manage my expectations. This was essential, given the fact that I am a disabled Veteran with Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress wounds. Christina is intuitively a mediator and sensitive to people’s anxieties; she provided value-added options for me to consider as she mentored me through the entire process. I have recommended Christina to family, friends and fellow Veterans because her integrity and character speaks directly to the quality service she provides.

Christina Shine handled my contentious divorce and custody case with great success. She was tenacious in the proceedings and in court even while making attempts to settle the case. Christina’s vast experience told her, that a settlement would be the best outcome for my ex-husband and I because we had to continue to find ways to coexist after the divorce. I would highly recommend Christina Shine for anyone going through a divorce and/or child custody proceedings.

While looking for an alternative to a confrontational lawyer-led divorce, a friend recommended that we consider Christina Shine for Divorce Mediation. I never imagined that mediation could possibly work for us but after our initial appointment both my ex and I agreed that Christina was someone that we could work with. The process seemed to be logical, sequential, and comprehensive. Christina was a strong, knowledgeable influence throughout the process. She was able to calm emotional periods (which there were a lot of), answer any questions, and keep us on task to achieve an agreement. She was professional, organized, knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and clear. I would recommend Christina Shine without hesitation to any couple in the difficult situation of considering divorce.
