About Kristi Skordahl

Kristi began practicing family law in 1994 after graduating with honors of the University of Minnesota Law School. She practiced for many years with one of the top family practice firms in the state. In 1998 she was named in the very first class of Rising Stars of Minnesota Law by Minnesota Law and Politics. She recently started her own practice in St. Paul.

Wanting to explore less litigious ways to resolve family law issues, Kristi received training in collaborative divorce, cooperative divorce, and mediation. She is a qualified neutral under Minnesota Supreme Court Rule 114. Kristi is passionate about helping people navigate the difficult waters of divorce and getting them to the other side with dignity and a peace.  In 2009 Kristi added a coaching element to her practice. She is a Certified Professional Coach and graduate of the Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara.  Kristi is the author of And Then She Was Happy: A Book About Divorce (set for release in January 2013).
