Chandler attorney Christy Thompson has had a whirlwind year. First, the firm moved to a new downtown Chandler location to accommodate the need for more space.

Now, due to expansion, the firm has added Carissa K. Seidl, who will practice in the areas of family law, juvenile law and criminal law.

Seidl practices primarily in family law which includes dissolution of marriage, legal separation, annulment, child custody, child support, parenting time, paternity/maternity actions, grandparent’s rights, termination of parental rights, step-parent adoptions, modification/enforcement/contempt actions, orders of protection and pre-nuptial agreements.

Seidl has litigated cases before the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona in Maricopa County and Pinal County, the Arizona Court of appeals — Division Two, Justice and Municipal Courts throughout Maricopa and Pinal counties, and the Arizona Superior Court in Maricopa, Pinal, Yavapai, Coconino, Yuma, Navajo, Mohave and Gila counties.

Seidl graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University in 2002, earning her bachelor’s degree in justice studies with a minor in psychology. She went on to earn her J.D. from Hamline University of Law in January 2005, although she studied as a visiting student at Arizona State University College of Law.

In the legal field for the past 15 years, Seidl clerked with Office of the Public Defender, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, and several general practice law firms in Minnesota and Arizona throughout high school, college and law school.

Seidl also volunteered with the Innocence Project of Minnesota and the Justice Project of Arizona investigating inmate’s claims of actual innocence.

Thompson’s practice handles divorce, personal injury and bankruptcy cases.

The firm has recently moved to a new and larger location in downtown Chandler at 101 W. Commonwealth Ave.
