When I started my office in 2002 it was my goal to pursue the practice of law with a "hands on" approach. Every case that comes into my office is handled from start to finish by me personally. I have made it my mission to offer the type of representation my clients can depend on by knowing that I am working hard for them every step of the way. I limit the number of cases my office takes on to ensure that each person who has retained my services also receives the full attention of my staff. I personally meet with all my clients and return their phone calls as well as appear at each court hearing with them. When you have hired me as your attorney your file is on my desk every day. I invite you to contact my office to schedule a free 30 minute consultation to meet with me to discuss your case.
My practice includes all aspects of Family Law, Criminal Law matters, and with a special emphasis on Juvenile cases.

My pledge is to provide you with the best defense possible by being prepared in every aspect of your case each time I step into the courtroom.

TESTIMONIAL: FAMILY LAW CLIENT
"Attorney Christine D. Thielo represented me in a child custody case. Attorney Thielo was both professional and compassionate. Most importantly Attorney Thielo had thorough knowledge of my case and it showed during court appearances. During court appearances I was always confident that attorney Thielo would be well prepared to represent me before the court. Furthermore, Attorney Thielo always answered my questions, responded to emails promptly and always found the time to guide me or provide professional advice throughout the court process. For those who are unfamiliar in dealing with lawyers, getting a response or a returned phone call from a law office without an appointment once you have paid your retainer is nearly impossible. I can attest that Attorney Thielo and her staff addressed every question and reassured me through the entire process until the end. I found Attorney Thielo to be someone of high character. I am beyond grateful for her outstanding service during the most difficult time of my life."
