Christie Krupp is a lawyer who "represented" my son in, what should have been, a rather minor traffic case. The objective for hiring a lawyer is simple: get him off the ticket. But instead she entered a guilty plea requiring him to pay a fine and court cost. Anyone can plead guilty on their own and no attorney fee is required thus saving you money. What did she think she was there for? She had a fiduciary duty to inform him he could plead guilty without hiring her to do that. My son's car was T-boned at an intersection having no stop signs, he was there first, and proceeded through. And then was hit on his passenger side door. He had entered the intersection first thereby giving him the right-of-way. That is the law. Christie Krupp never interviewed my son to get the facts. According to the Internet (I googled her) she claims to have worked for 4 states attorneys so she understands plea bargaining. What she doesn't understand is we don't want our son being blamed by our insurance company for the accident, and getting the court case dropped would be a good step. So entering a guilty plea is how she "defends" cases? She got bullied by the states attorney and buckled at the knees. Or maybe she was just helping him (possibly a friend?) to get a high conviction rate at the expense of my son. We hired her to win, we can lose by ourselves without hiring a lawyer. AAA Motor Club ONLY reimburses members for attorney fees IF you win the case, so now we cannot get reimbursed for legal defense. Bargaining with the states attorney for a guilty plea is NOT my idea of how a lawyer should represent a simple traffic case. DO NOT hire Christie Krupp unless your objective is to have her enter a guilty plea, and YOU pay fines and court cost, and then YOU pay her too. Hire a shark, not a wimp. Hire an established law firm, not someone working out of her home office. On the other hand if you just hit the lottery and want to throw around some money then hire Christie Krupp. Perhaps instead just throw the money in the garbage because if you hire Christie Krupp that's where its going.
