Attorney Christine D. Thielo

Attorney Christine D. Thielo

Child Custody, Divorce, and Family Law Attorney

Upon passing the bar in 2002 it was my goal to pursue the practice of law with an approach of excellence through hard work and personalized attention for each of my clients.

When I opened the Law Office of Christine D. Thielo in 2002 I chose to follow "the road less traveled" by limiting the number of cases I take on to ensure that each person who has retained my office receives the benefit of my full attention as well as the full attention of my staff.

I continue to practice law with this philosophy. 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 with them every step of the way and that I am up to date on every aspect of their case at all times. I personally meet with all my clients and return their phone calls as well as appear at each court hearing with them.

I am familiar face and voice in San Bernardino and Los Angeles County courtrooms. I pride myself on working diligently to assist my clients in every way possible. I am straightforward and will always communicate with you honestly and clearly about your case.

My practice includes all aspects of Family Law with a special emphasis on Juvenile cases.
