Attorney Profile

“I work with clients to get them from the chaos and uncertainty of facing a major life change to creating a plan and road map for a secure future.” — Kristiana Butler

In her practice, Kristiana has seen the life-changing impact that divorce and child custody issues can have. She not only offers clients a calming presence in the immediate aftermath of a major life change, but also guides them in making the transition to planning for a new—and optimally better—normal.

When serving clients who own small or multigenerational businesses, Kristiana brings an understanding of divorces that involve complex financial and shareholder issues. When advocating for parents, she helps define new roles in family life and strives for thoughtful co-parenting arrangements.

As an attorney trained in Collaborative Divorce, Kristiana works with her clients as a team, offering practical and realistic advice and developing creative solutions not limited by preconceived notions. Kristiana focuses on modern families and she encourages clients to establish priorities and keep them in sight. Overall, Kristiana strives to tailor a resolution that fits each situation, stands the test of time, and does not compound the emotional or financial costs.

When divorce shatters dreams, Kristiana helps families move forward with a roadmap for hopeful new futures.

Kristiana has practiced family law exclusively since 2013. Named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Kristiana is dedicated to empowering women in the law and is a board member of the Mother Attorney Mentor Association of Austin. She is also a Girl Scout troop leader for her daughter, and considers it to be an important part of laying the foundation for future leaders and female entrepreneurs.
