Client Comments

"Grace Under Pressure A prominent New Mexico attorney recommended Kathrin Kinzer-Ellington to us as, "the best family law attorney in Santa Fe" after a horrible experience with another lawyer who was losing our case, time, and money to negligence and incompetence. We came to Kathrin Kinzer-Ellington and her law office with what must have been hard to believe claims of injustice on two fronts (domestic and legal), limited resources, no legal file and pending deadlines. Her healthy skepticism of our claims of injustice made us a bit nervous-we were not sure if an attorney of her stature would want our case. After considering our evidence she rose to the challenge with class and ease true to her reputation. Kathrin Kinzer-Ellington goes above and beyond what is required, which speaks to her character and concern. She is a credit to the legal profession. She listens, remembers and follows through. She's sharp, strong, confident, organized, highly professional and present. Most important to us, she cares. Kathrin Kinzer-Ellington is an outstanding attorney with impeccable integrity who epitomizes Ernest Hemingway's definition of courage: grace under pressure. Thank you, Kathrin and Pamela, for restoring our faith in the legal profession. Your hard work is making a difference in a young boy's life. His future is much brighter because of you. "
