“Learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow …”

Kristine Reich, ESQ, MSW.

Specializing in mediation, and family and juvenile law matters, Kristine has over two decades of experience working with families and children experiencing difficult transitional life events. Borne of a deep appreciation for holistic, solution focused practice, Restorative Law and Mediation was organized in December 2014.

Kristine’s multi-disciplinary approach to practice is influenced by her legal education received from Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University (’08), and Masters in Social work at Arizona State University (ASU) (’93). Having practiced family law since 2011, she has worked as an adjunct professor or in legal education since 2008, and was a child welfare social worker and therapist for fifteen (15) years prior to law school. She is formerly the statewide Director of Training for what is now the Child Welfare Training Institute at the Arizona Department of Child Safety and the Director of Adoptions for Aid to Adoption of Special Kids (AASK).

Kristine’s best days in the profession are being witness to the transformative process of those that start in despair, and go on to create joyful futures.
