McMurdie Law Office - About

Cristi McMurdie has consistently provided exceptional representation to all her clients since 1995. Cristi is the President/CEO and sole partner of Tempe-based McMurdie Law Office, P.C. which serves clients in estate planning and family law. Cristi is also the President/CEO of A1MediationServices, a dba of McMurdie Law.

After graduating from Arizona State College of Law in 1992, Cristi worked with insurance defense attorneys Martin Hart & Fullerton in Mesa, Arizona and shortly thereafter began to build a family practice. Nearly two decades later, McMurdie Law Office continues to offer its clients excellent representation in estate planning and family law.

Cristi’s conservative approach to clients’ legal needs often entails reviewing options that may include mediation first,, prior to seeking redress in court. Opportunities for resolution out of court can occur at many junctures in a case, and it takes one who has training in both areas to recognize this. Cristi values sustaining and preserving family relationships and assets and her practice allows for this possibility.

Cristi’s professional affiliations are: Family Law Section of the Arizona Bar, Maricopa County Association of Family Mediators (MCAFM), Arizona Association of Conflict Resolution (AACR), National Association of Conflict Resolution, Better Business Bureau (BBB), Arizona International Coach Federation (ICF). McMurdie Law Office has been a long term member of the Tempe Chamber and Chandler Chamber of Commerce, as well as contributing donors to Fresh Start Women's Foundation, Sojourner Center and Gabriel's Angels.

Cristi’s professional development expands beyond the legal arena to certifications in professional coaching accreditations, through the International Coach Federation and speaking. Cristi is the President of Kuleana Consulting & Coaching, the umbrella company for coaching, consulting, and speaking services. Cristi is a devoted toastmaster to her home club, Dobson Ranch Toastmasters, holding the Competent Communicator and Competent Leader designations.

For the last three years Cristi has been nominated for the Athena Award of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. She has also written a book on divorce and is the proud mother of two grown sons earning their PhD's.
