Christina and her team were absolutely amazing through this entire process. We were dealing with a DV type of situation in which made it hard emotionally to reopen those memories.

Not only was she upfront and honest throughout the entire process, but she showed empathy for my individual experiences with bio. I could go on and on about her diligence and dedication to our case!! She made the process as painless as possible. We will be grateful for what she did for our family forever.

We are forever grateful for what she was able to accomplish for us and for all her hard work along the way!!!
"I would strongly recommend them."
Christina Sherman and Annelise Martin were both extremely professional, and willing to answer our questions and help us in our families adoption proceedings. After several discussions with them about how to possibly proceed, of which they were very honest and upfront about how the situation could go, we retained them to handle our case. With their continued assistance and effort, not only did the case rule in our favor, but what was a highly stressful and challenging situation went about as smooth as possible. I would strongly recommend them.
"Highly Recommended Attorney"
I wish I Could Give her More than 5 Stars. Christina and her assistant Annelise are amazing. I cannot thank her enough for working with us on our case. She is professional, intelligent, Accurate and a great person to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable. Finding a lawyer who understands and has the best interests for our children is a fortune. We got Christina’s services for stepparent adoption case. It was a complicated and long case in which she walked us through each step and helped us. Throughout the process she was calm and reassuring even we had so many Questions to ask but she never overlooked them. She cleared every single doubt in our mind. I would whole-heartedly recommend her as your attorney if you are going through a rough patch in life and need some professional advice. She is honest and up-front about her fees and works with full transparency. Thank you so much again for your hard work!!!
"Christina helped us with a contested adoption"
She looked at the case from multiple angles and consistently looked for the path of highest likelihood of success. In the end the other parent agreed to terminate rights and we were able to complete the adoption.
"We knew right away Christina was a good fit for us"
When we were looking for an attorney to pursue the adoption of my daughter, Christina and her assistant Annalise were the first people we met with. After meeting with them, we knew right away that they were going to be a good fit for us. They were in constant communication in regards to status and updates. Very proactive with the tasks that needed to be done on their end, and very friendly and professional whenever had to come in to the office to do paperwork. I would absolutely recommend Christina and Annalise. Proactive, knowledgeable and all around stellar representation. 10/10.
"My husband and I are so thankful for Christina and her assistant"
We came to them with a VERY complicated case and a 4 day deadline to complete a private adoption. No only did they beat the deadline of when the baby was supposed to be here, but they helped us through every aspect of this case. From the first conversation we had, I immediately felt taken care of and knew they would help us through this. The case became a lot more complicated and Christina confidently told us not to worry and she was able to help with it all. Christina came to the hospital and brought a cute gift for our sweet baby boy. Every time I spoke with Christina or her assistant I felt comforted and had full faith that they could see us through everything. I cannot say enough great things about working with Christina. I am so thankful she was able to help us and saw us through everything. She feels a bit like family now and we will always be extremely grateful for all of her hard work and compassion.
"Christina and Annelise were simply amazing"
They took a VERY stressful process and made it so much easier. Christina was supportive, positive, responsive, communicative, and reassuring. She is also very knowledgeable. We had the best experience and we would absolutely trust them with all our future adoptions! Thank you Christina and Annelise for helping our dream of becoming a family come true!
"My husband and I strongly recommend this genius lawyer attorney for adoption process"
She was recommended from an agent who handles child services. Good thing i trusted and believed in that agent’s word of advice and took her advice because everything i was told from that person appeared to be true. Christina is a very sweet loving, amazing family-oriented, and a very helpful individual to deal with. Even if your situation seems hard at first, she will always find a way to help you get thru with a positive attitude and to help you win your case. She and her assistant Annelise did a great amazing job as quick as possible just within about 3 to 4 total months of wait for a final approval. Our process was sort of tough at first but these two helped made everything easy to follow along and we didn’t have to do much but collecting just evidence signatures and personal documents to them while they deal with the hard part. Am sooo relieved that within 3-4 months we receive our final approval. We are now very excited and grateful for their sweet and loving hard work upon our adoption process. Our hats off and we would definitely choose Christina Sherman once again if we ever have to adopt another child in the future or preferably for any other legal issues that she handles. You will not be disappointed 😇
"Wonderful to work with"
The whole process to adopt my daughter was seamless, warm, professional and peaceful to work with her and her staff! Thank you!
"Made us feel comfortable throughout the process"
Christina helped our family with two adoptions, one for an older child and one for our baby. She walked us through the entire process and checked in with us every step of the way. She was warm and inviting, making us feel comfortable throughout. I am so thankful to have had someone who could ease my worries. We are now the legal parents of both children and couldn't be happier! My wife and I would like to adopt again in the future and we know we have someone we can go with confidence that the job will be done quickly and efficiently.
"She was wonderful!"
Christina has walked our family through two adoptions.
“Can’t recommend enough.”
Wow. There really aren’t words. We had a very complex step parent adoption case that Christina took on. I thought we were looking at a year long battle, Christina got it done in under 3 months. She was on top of everything, called me multiple times just to talk me through everything and get me through some stressful parts. You can tell her care extends beyond the case and truly to your family. If you want someone who truly cares and isn’t afraid of a tough fight, she is it !!! Can’t recommend enough.
" My family and I are grateful for all that you have helped us accomplished"
After being given several list of adoption lawyers after consulting with a JAG (Judge Advocate General) representative, we were drawn to Christina Sherman and we are blessed to have chosen her. From the get go, we have always been informed, both her and Annelise are always very informative, helpful and kind throughout our whole adoption process. Thank you very much Christina! My family and I are grateful for all that you have helped us accomplished.

Christina Sherman did such an amazing job working with our family. She was professional and answered all my emails and questions. She worked very hard and got things done in a fast and timely manner.
“Outstanding, compassionate and loyal”
Christina Sherman, I must say is an outstanding lawyer. My husband and I have been trying for some years to adopt our grandchildren, we have been through a couple of lawyers and they either could not help do our situation, with our grandchildren’s parents. We thought that our chances for adoption weren’t gonna happen. Someone recommended Mrs. Sherman and what a blessing. She kept it real with our case, and we really appreciated her honesty, it’s hard to find good people and lawyer like her. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great adoption lawyer. She knows her stuff and if doesn’t have the right away for you she will do her research and get back to you without delay.
“You’re an amazing Attorney”
Christina, thank you very much for our amazing son! You took on one of the most complicated case ever that no else wanted to take and did an outstanding job. We are very blessed to have met you! Through it all, you fought the odds alone and you never gave up on us. We will never forget you and always know you have a place in our hearts. You’re amazing!!! We love you and Thank You once again!!
“Thank you Christina”
You made our adoption process painless and smooth. We thought it would be much more complicated and was expecting the worse. There were so many things that could have gone wrong and we were not sure if this would go through but you kept reassuring us that everything would be ok. We were in and out of court within 30 min and got our picture taken with Christina and the judge. It was one of my favorite days! I know I will recommend her to my family and friends and if we need another lawyer she would be our person. Thanks again!
“Felt like one of the family”
Christina made us feel like she was one of the family. She handled our adoption with empathy, understanding and professionalism. It brought us great peace of mind to know that we had an attorney that could help us navigate an emotional and intricate process. To top it all off she was also able to get us through the entire process faster than we expected.
“Best experience ever!”
Christina was the only lawyer to take on our step-parent adoption. She was honest and up front. She presented us with worst case and best case scenarios, and was only willing to move forward if and when we were ready. When emotions were raw she was sensitive and kind, and gave us the pep talk we needed. She also completed a foster adoption as well. Can’t fish enough about Christina and her services! If we ever need another lawyer for family services she is our go-to lady!
We were in search of a lawyer for adoption when we came across to Christina. She was very friendly, informed, and knowledgeable of the process and what we would have to go through. She also gave us all possible scenarios that could take place if things ended up not going smoothly. But in the end everything was handled quickly and easily. Would highly recommend her for anyone looking to adopt.
Christina was an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped to make my son’s adoption process fast and easy. When I first started the process to adopt I felt overwhelmed, but Christina was there with me every step of the way. We went through the motions together and I felt supported and informed the entire time. I thought the process to finalize my son’s adoption was going to be a long process, but Christina got the ball rolling right away and the adoption was completed in a little over two months. I would describe Christina as knowledgeable, professional, passionate, and kind. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs help with their adoption needs.
“Went Above and Beyond”
Christine was very helpful and we appreciate everything she has done for our family. She went above and beyond to make sure that Mallory got the end result she has been longing for no matter what circumstances arose. We would highly recommend her for anyone’s family that is needing an attorney.
“The Best Lawyer I’ve Ever Hired.”
Ms. Sherman was extremely professional, swift in all her actions and communications, and was brutally honest with expectations. We hired her for an adoption to where the birth father’s whereabouts were unknown. She was very upfront with any and all costs and scenarios. I am so glad we hired her for this. I just wish she did more than adoptions! I’d hire her for all of our other legal needs!

“There really aren’t words to truly express how happy and grateful I am.“
Christina is not only an excellent lawyer but she is highly compassionate and able to apply the right kind of advice and how she delivers it depending on the situation. I think working in this field of law is a calling, and she is definitely called to work with families. I was very fortunate to find her. I trusted her professionalism. She calmed me through some anxious times, while still being very straight-forward and realistic. Because of her i was able to adopt my daughter, who is the greatest joy in my life. There really aren’t words to truly express how happy and grateful I am. I think about Christina and my daughter’s birth mother and her family daily when i look at my daughter. I hope to use Christina’s services again to expand our family.
I can't express how great she was. She got our adoption done faster than the time frame she gave us. She made us all feel very comfortable and communicated every detail to us. She really took the time to help us and showed that she cared. Highly recommend.
