December 2022 LPEP Spotlight: Kristi Freas

Kristi Freas is a paralegal at Lonich Patton Ehrlich Policastri.

What do you like about family law?

A: I enjoy working in family law because I can empathize with those who are going through the experience of a divorce. Family law issues can encompass the totality of some of our client’s lives and bringing any comfort to them makes the job worthwhile. We have such a strong group of professionals at LPEP and it is great to be part of a team that can give our clients the best support.

What strengths do you bring to the game?

A: I have been in the legal field for over 20 years and continue to have a better understanding of how to assist our clients. Starting out as a receptionist and learning how a law firm operates has given me the perspective on how to be a better teammate within the office and help each task go smoother.

Something about you?

A: I am a San Jose native, now loving it in Santa Cruz. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, running and being near the beach!
