"If you're going through hell, keep going." That's what Winston Churchill said. Christina Pesoli thinks that's good advice. But at the risk of being presumptuous, when it comes to family law matters, Christina would expand on Churchill's advice just a little by adding, "...and make sure to hire a good lawyer."

Christina believes that a "good lawyer" involves not only credentials and experience, but also the right personality fit. Christina knows that how well you connect with your divorce lawyer has a lot to do with how smoothly your case goes. Christina's ability to connect with her clients comes at least in part from the fact that she herself went through a difficult divorce years ago. That means she knows what divorce involves, from both the lawyer's and the client's side of the process.

Before practicing family law, Christina was a commercial real estate lawyer-experience that proves invaluable in divorce cases, when real estate is typically a sizeable portion of the community estate.  Christina has had tours of duty as a mom balancing a career and a family, a single mom, and a stay-at-home mom. That breadth of experience gives her unique insight into the concerns, risks, fears and uncertainty facing clients in all manner of positions.

When she's not representing clients, Christina blogs in the Divorce Section of the Huffington Post. She has also authored a book, Break Free from the Divortex: Power Through Your Divorce and Launch Your New Life, which serves as a survival guide for women who are going through difficult divorces.

Christina is a proud native Austinite and an even prouder mother of two.
