.

I am a believer in collaborative law - the best approach to the terrible divorce experience - and Cristi is genuinely a strong proponent. In my experience, she was easy to speak with and sought to provide good client experience, likely more so than most attorneys.\r
\r
However, I must say that I felt under-represented at multiple times during the long divorce process. My ex-wife's collaborative attorney was more active on her behalf, and I sometimes felt on my own. A few times I even felt that Cristi might be more focused on maintaining collaborative attorney-attorney relationships than to me as a client, which made me uncomfortable.\r
\r
If I had to do it all over again, I would go a different direction. So I cannot recommend.

Even if you have come to the realization that divorce is your only option, there is a good chance that you are an emotional wreck. If you are like me, you are wondering why did I stay so long with my abusive spouse and endure so much pain, how can I move forward and how do I know what to do now? Trusler Menduni, PLLC will help guide you through the divorce process, give you the different options and help you understand the pros and cons of each option.

I had hoped to use their Flat Fee No Nonsense? divorce process using a very thorough work book, but my spouse and I could not agree on issues regarding our child and child support. The transition from the Flat Fee No Nonsense? divorce to a mediated divorce went very smoothly.

I worked with Cristi and Becca. Both are experienced divorce attorneys and both are exceptional as they thoroughly know the divorce process, divorce laws and the judges. Becca and their paralegal, Rebecca, worked closely with me to understand the details leading up to the divorce decision and what I hoped to retain at the end of the divorce. Becca attended the mediation with me and speeded up the mediation by being prepared and providing the mediator with a list of the major assets and liabilities. Becca helped me understand the options and the pros and cons of each option suggested by my spouse and his lawyer. Becca was never judgmental if I did not pick the option that she suggested. The choice was mine and I was the one who has to live with the ramifications of my choices.

Cristi, Becca and their paralegal, Rebecca, were always willing to answer my questions through face-to-face meetings, phone calls or e-mails. You have the option to allow their paralegal, Rebecca, to perform some of the services to help reduce the cost of your divorce.

I did my research and I chose Trusler Menduni, PLLC and I am comforted by the fact that I picked the right team to help me with my divorce.

i walked in to Cristi Trusler's office not knowing if I was coming or going, It was such an emotional time and I didn't know where to begin. Cristi educated me on my options guided me and made me comfortable with a plan for my daughter and I. The T&M firm is pleasant and calm from the minute you walk in, they are good about returning your emails and phone calls. All together very professional but very personable at the same time. I was grateful!

Pros: listened first, cared about my child, advised me on options

I recently used Cristi Trusler and she was overpriced, unresponsive, self-motivated and unprofessional. Would NOT recommend her or her firm.

Pros: Pleasant receptionist

Cons: Overpriced, unresponsive, self-motivated and unprofessional

I chose the Trusler firm because I wanted to follow a collaborative divorce process. Unfortunately, that's not how it played out, and the negotiations became prolonged, complicated and threatened to become very expensive (if they progressed to litigation). Cristi did a great job of leading us through a mediated settlement agreement that addressed all of our issues in a way that was fair - I won some battles, and conceded others...but in the end we were able to get this matter finished and closed without litigation and for what were reasonable legal expenses. I appreciate that Cristi and her team kept me up to date, returned my calls and emails promptly, and were very responsive. They made a bad life experience very tolerable.

My divorce was very stressful and sad. More than anything, I was concerned about how it was going to affect my young daughter. Cristi Trusler found a creative settlement for us and we were able to avoid nasty litigation. Best of all, it spared my daughter any unnecessary emotional distress. \r

I can't recommend her highly enough.

I was devastated when my wife left me and took our 2 kids. To make matters worse, she wouldn't talk to me or let me speak to my kids. When I came to see Trusler & Associates, I was very angry and I was determined that I was going to ""get even"". They helped me focus on what was important ? my kids. We were able to put together a plan for joint custody and because of their hard work, the kids are doing well and we both get to spend quality time with them. I'm very thankful that they helped me find a reasonable solution to my situation.

Becca Meduni of Trusler and Associates was very professional, courteous and attentive. Ms. Becca Meduni she provided valuable insight of family law and gave my case the professional attention it deserved. I would highly recommend her and Trusler Associates.

I can't recommend Becca Menduni of Trusler Legal highly enough. Becca is knowledgeable, very sharp and communicated well. The best thing she ever told me was - know what you want and I'll see if I can get it for you. I figured out what I wanted, Becca helped me ask for more than that, and we got a quick settlement for in between. You can't beat that! \r
\r
I can't believe anyone would give her a bad review. I've sent several friends to Becca and they've all been very happy. I guess if you want an attorney to waste your money and time by telling you want you want to hear, then go elsewhere. I wanted to get on with my life. Becca helped me do just that.

When my ex filed for divorce, just prior to the Thanksgiving Holidays, it came as quite a shock how methodically she and her entourage of lawyers, counselors and ""others"" had looted assets, slandered my name, and prepared to literally take me to the cleaners. While my marriage had been in trouble for years, I really didn't want a divorce. Fortunately, a dear friend in Austin, who is quite skilled at finding good people in the legal field, recommended Trusler and Associates. When I met Cristi Trusler for the first time,she had cancelled a holiday trip to meet with me. After speaking with her, my mind was set at ease. This was a law firm with folks who were honest, ethical, smart, shrewd and tough. As a result of letting her handle my case, I was able to keep all of my retirement(s), get a rather equitable property settlement, get on with my life, and keep my sanity. While other attorneys would have tried to or at least would have responded to another attorneys efforts to ""ratchet up"" the acrimony in a divorce to get it into court where both parties could spend tens of thousands of dollars, Cristi's tough, calm and common sense approach allowed me to keep control of things. In the end, the costs of my divorce was at least an order of magnitude less than my ex's expenses, while the quality of the legal advice and service I got was nothing short of outstanding. When I told a friend of mine who is also an attorney about the details of my divorce settlement, that attorney remarked that ""what your lawyer did for you is nothing short of a miracle"".. \r
\r
As a result of the way I was treated by Cristi Trusler and the quality of services I've gotten at Trusler and Associates, I've recommended Trusler and Associates to several of my close friends and wouldn't hesistate to do so again. If I ever need a lawyer in Central Texas, I know who to call.
