In 2017, Kristen also received her certification from the Illinois Supreme Court to conduct family law mediation, and she has been a certified Guardian Ad Litem since 2015.
When deciding to open Strieker Law Firm in 2018, Kristen’s goal was to provide her clients with a modern approach to family law, including prioritization of eliminating or reducing the high conflict nature involved with domestic relations litigation. When selecting an office location, Kristen quickly zeroed in on Glen Carbon as a top choice, due in large part to the supportive business community. To this day, she believes that community support has been integral to the firm’s success these last 4 years. As such, Kristen has been committed to public service and local philanthropy, focusing her efforts on causes that directly benefit Glen Carbon residents.
Immediate plans for Strieker Law Firm this year include moving to a new office location in Glen Carbon, which is set to open this Spring 2023 in the Magnolia Commons Professional Office Park. Kristen is hopeful that the additional office space will allow the Firm to grow and to increase capability to help local residents with their family law needs.
