Christine is fantastic! She is knowledgeable, thorough and a great communicator. She explains the process and the critical details well so you understand what needs to be done and why. Her staff is very professional and responsive. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering estate planning.

Christine and the CHA Law group have been intricately woven into my daughter’s beautiful adoption story. I am so thankful that Christine came alongside us and our immigration lawyer to get some necessary documentation. What has impressed me the most was her willingness to advocate for my daughter and her timeliness in getting it done both times that I’ve worked with her! Thank you Christine and everyone at the CHA Law firm. May your year be blessed and prosperous!

I am a single gay man who became a dad through surrogacy. Christine helped me evaluate my surrogate from a legal perspective, established a plan and a backup plan, produced a coherent contract, and saw things through to completion. It felt great when at the end of the road Christine called me on Skype so I could appear (barefoot in my pajama bottoms) with my twins in New York before a judge in Texas so he could conclude my case by saying, “Those girls are yours for ever and ever.”

We retained Christine after adopting our two children internationally. We learned that if we “re-adopted” our children in Texas, they could obtain Texas birth certificates. Given that their birth certificates from Russia and China, respectively, had to be translated into English, we thought that Texas birth certificates would save them a lot of time and trouble throughout their lives. Christine was the only attorney we spoke to who know how to do this. She handled the court hearing spectacularly, and charged us a simple flat fee. We highly recommend Christine!

I am happy I found Christine and her staff. I unexpectedly found myself in need of an adoption lawyer a few years ago. It was a whirlwind of excitement, fear and uncertainty. I was a soon to be single Gay Father adopting a newborn child in the very conservative Panhandle of Texas. Christine and her staff put my fears aside and did everything they could to make the adoption as smooth as possible. Her experience dealing with LGBTQ families and adoptions put me at ease and made the entire process smooth as could be expected. I would recommend Christine to anyone adopting! Oh yeah, and she didn’t charge me an arm and a leg either!

Kind and Professional Guidance

Right from the start they treated us much more than clients but as family. Their kind and professional guidance and support was the key to accomplishing our most desired goal in life: becoming parents. We truly recommend CHA Law. They have been a true blessing for our family. We will always be grateful.

Alfredo and Maria Del Prado-Saliva

Christine and her staff were knowledgeable, professional, and so easy to work with.  They are well connected in the legal community here in Austin, which made working through our issue unbelievably smooth.  The cost for service was very reasonable. I highly recommend them if you have any of the issues described on their website!

Sharane Wang

I engaged Ms. Andresen to assist in my petition for name and gender marker change. One of her specializations is LGBT-related issues. She is very thorough in explaining issues, presenting information as well as ramifications answering even peripherally related questions. She is knowledgeable.  She and the people at her practice are thorough, super-punctual and efficient.

Anna Nguyen

Communicative, professional and responsive.

We were “working” with an attorney in Dallas for 6 weeks with no progress and horrible communication. We fired them and signed on with Christine.  She and her team were exceptional. We were working on a tight timeline and they delivered. Extremely communicative, professional and responsive. We are so happy we made the switch and will recommend her firm to anyone in TX that needs family law assistance.

Efficient, flexible, affable

I found Christine, Casey, Angie, and all of the staff at CHA to be efficient, flexible, affable, and most importantly not prone to fumbling with LGBTQ issues. When I found myself all tangled up in some very sluggish Texas bureaucracies, I found CHA to be responsive and supportive; they saw me through a few barriers that I likely would not have been able to claw my over by myself. If you’re looking for an office to help you get through your legal name change and correction of gender needs, I think you could ask for no better office to support you.

Andrea Perry

Christine and staff successfully represented me for legal gender correction and name change, at a very reasonable flat fee. Let me describe one small thing that I think exemplifies the kind of person she is—on a Sunday night, after midnight, the night before my planned court date, she emailed me to reassure me that we could go through with the appearance even though my doctor’s office had been recalcitrant in providing supporting documentation. What kind of attorney is emailing her flat fee clients at midnight on the weekend? An amazing one.

Schell Carpenter

Professional but very caring in their actions.  It all paid off in the end as of December 23rd 2015 I am now officially an adoptive parent of a 6 1/2 yo who has blossomed into such a fine young man.  I would encourage anyone needing to approach this process to consider Ms. Christine Henry Andresen and her staff due to their professionalism, compassion, and extreme knowledge of the adoption process.  Thank you all again for everything you have done for me and my grandson.

Carol Freeman

Caring and professional

Christine represented me in my divorce. She and her staff were caring and professional from start to finish. They explained things thoroughly and I felt like I had a say in the process as much as possible. I would highly recommend this firm for anyone needing family law services.
