The post on this site reporting that Attorney Krista Carls is being investigated is COMPLETELY FALSE and is being generated by a disgruntled individual that Krista Carls was successful in getting a judgement against them on behalf of her client. I would encourage you to contact the ARDC who will confirm the fact that there is no such ongoing investigation. This information was posted by an extremely unsavory individual who has broken the law on numerous occasions.

My experience was nothing but horrible. Day one of meeting her, she was extremely rude & I was hurt by her words leaving her office. I thought, maybe her being so rude & aggressive, that's what I need to win my case. Not the case. One day at court, everyone was waiting on Krista. The judge was about to continue the case to another date, as I couldn't have that happen. My mom called her, asking when she'd be there. She told my mother to f**k off & hung up on her. At this point, I was not in a good place to switch lawyers, so I continued dealing with someone that was very disrespectful towards me. I've been going through a custody battle for over a year now. Krista would say "kids are nothing but a**holes now a days". Would tell me, "u don't want to see your daughter right now, look how she's being". Any parent out there will disagree with that, we want nothing more, than to see our kids. I've heard more wrong about my daughter & nothing but bashing of her from Krista. Krista was hired to help me with my daughter. She did nothing of the sort. I had Krista as a lawyer for five months. She would file motions without talking to me or getting my approval. The last two months, I've texted Krista numerous times, called & have sent out multiple emails. Simply asking what's going on, any news, what are these new motions, & even that I have money for her. The day I saw her for my court date, she asked about the money. I said I didn't have it with because I've never gotten a response but can bring it by today. She explained how disrepecful it was that I wasn't paying monthly as she's trying to run a new business, & she'd have over a million dollars from all the client's that have not payed. I asked if that's why she hasn't gotten a hold of me. She stated, "I only talk to the clients that pay". Then withdrew from being my lawyer. Within two weeks of finding a new lawyer, she just sued me for the money. Took just two weeks! Money that she did not work for. Completely sickened.

This is Krista Carls. Kristi Oberg is my client and my friend. She did not post what is written here. We are trying to find out how to remove it. Her ex, Garry Chrispin posted it in her name after we beat him in court. There are no pending investigations against me. This is completely false.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
