  • Over the years I have recommended, what is now, the Branstad and Olson Law firm to several people.

    Twenty years ago, my husband was in a compromising and extremely stressful situation due to manipulation and false accusations. His lawyer had only made things worse. His brilliant research career was on the line. He was stressed to the max. I suggested he contact Christine Branstad because I had heard good things about her. He did. He was treated with complete respect, and felt secure in the process. Christineâ•˙s immediate discernment of the situation, her superior knowledge of the law and her quick, on-the-spot ability to respond correctly in court, not only saved his career but enabled him to live stress free. Over the years I have recommended, what is now, the Branstad and Olson Law firm to several people. All of them have had positive outcomes and come back to thank me with glowing things to say about how they were treated with respect and their lives returned to normal due to the firms unparalleled knowledge of the law. Recently I too have experienced the firms help. It was not a huge problem, but in my old age, it was stressful and daunting to me until Christine and the team took care of all the legal end of things with ease. I cannot thank them enough. The entire team works together smoothly. I was treated with the same care and respect as if this had been a huge problem. I too am extremely thankful for them.

  • Excellent Attorney!
    When speaking with Ms. Brandstad for the first time, she portrayed rare qualities such as professionalism, honesty, kindness, patience and determination. When confronted with multiple questions, she took the time to provide an answer, as well as an explanation to her answers.

  • You will receive a good outcome with her.
    Going through my case was a huge challenge for me psychologically. Not knowing how things would turn out was very frustrating and was basically eating me alive from the inside. Christine was a huge factor in helping me relieve some of these anxieties. Because of her guidance, my case went very smoothly. I trusted her throughout the entire process and she never led me astray. She was an extremely knowledgeable person who clearly shows her tenure in the courtroom as well as in this field overall. She is highly personable and her reputation is impeccable. Everyone in the courtroom from lawyers, judges, or prosecutors seemed to clearly have an unspoken respect for her. She is truly a caring being who is devoted to justice for others. It is inspiring to me how much work and time she puts into helping others who are in need. The cases she handles and the kindness she has is admirable. She really cares about her clients. I am so glad I hired her. Please seek her for help if you ever find yourself running into a tough situation. She’ll be there for you and you won’t regret it.

  • OUTSTANDING LAWYER! The best of the best.

    Christine is an amazing lawyer. She always dives into her work and holds nothing back. A true fighter and an understanding person all in one package. Truly a unique individual. She has helped me with a number of issues and it has been my privilege to know this woman.

    The bottom line is this: You simply will not find a more capable, dedicated, intelligent, well-prepared, considerate or loyal attorney to represent you, than Christine Branstad.

    My livelihood was on the line and Christine was quick to come to my rescue. She was reasonably priced and provided detailed and sufficient information to allow me to participate in my appeal hearing with great confidence.

  • My case was dismissed!
    Christine helped me out when I was falsely accused by my husband's ex wife. She told me exactly what was going to happen and how long it was going to take. She fought very hard for me. My case was dismissed and my DHS case was overturned also. I had never been through anything like this before and she made me feel like I was in very capable hands. I would highly recommend Christine to anyone.

  • I found her to be one of the top criminal lawyers in the state.
    I hired Christine during after an exhausting search of attorneys at law to handle my case. I found her to be one of the top criminal lawyers in the state. After a brief consultation concerning the merits of my case, she assured me that the charges against me could be dismissed. She has been informative, accessible, and straightforward in our dealings - the kind of assets you want in an attorney.

  • Amazing Lawyer, highly recommend.
    Amazing Lawyer, highly recommend. Nate Olson was the one to represent me more on Christine's behalf and I only had one appearance with Christine but I also rank her at 5 stars as well. I am highly satisfied with the consult of both attorneys and they both helped me win my case and I couldn't be forever more grateful and tremendously thankful i am for their hard work and great professionalism in helping me succeed in landing a great deal on my charge. Thank you again to the both of you :)

  • Cared about my case!
    Very caring, and everything went perfect with my case. He was appointed to me, but I'm glad I got someone who did not only care about the money but also the case.
