Christina L. Mayfield is a family law lawyer on a mission — to help her clients gain control and navigate an unfamiliar legal process.
Christina represents clients with various matrimonial issues, divorce, child custody, parenting time, child support, modifications of child custody and parenting time; domestic violence, psychological and mental abuse, and parental alienation.
As a family law attorney, she recognizes that her clients are going through difficult, uncomfortable, and sometimes humiliating situations, whether they are facing a divorce, a legal separation, a child custody battle, a visitation matter, a child support issue, a geographical restrictions issue, a modification of an existing judgment, or the need to split the family business. Often family law clients experience stages of fear, grief and loneliness when going through a divorce or child custody matter. During the divorce process, clients are pressed with the need to create stability and security for their children while rebuilding their family structure and to preserve and secure their interest in their marital property. Adjustment takes time. Due to her compassion and perseverance, her genuine interest in resolving the issues in her client's best interest, Christina is a natural family law lawyer.
As a former insurance litigation defense attorney, Christina is equally comfortable in the courtroom as she is counseling her clients one-on-one or advocating on their behalf in mediation. She is motivated to obtain the best results even where the ultimate goal is for the judge to award her client primary physical and legal custody.
