A LETTER FROM THE FOUNDER
FIGHTING FOR THE UNDERDOG
Welcome to Bergsten Law Offices! We know how important your pet, service animal, or working animal is to you and that is why we will do everything we can to get you the justice you and your animal deserve.
Not only do we fight for the four-legged underdogs, we fight for the two-legged underdogs, too. At Bergsten Law, we know how to get you the best result, whether that is through aggressive criminal defense or the dogged pursuit of your civil rights!
Pet Custody is a highly contentious and contested situation. You need an expert to help you navigate the justice system to make sure your pet comes home with you. We use creative arguments and out-of-the-box thinking to get you the best result possible.
You are my client and you are my boss: you make all the decisions and I help guide you along the way. To put it another way: you are the captain of the ship and I am your first-mate; I tell you whether there are rocks or clear waters ahead and you decide which way to steer. And if "Moby Dick" rears his ugly head, you can rest assured I will be ready with my harpoon to take him down!
I hope to speak to you soon and start working towards a solution in your case.
- Kristina Bergsten

SERVICE ANIMAL COMPLIANCE
Bergsten Law Offices is experienced with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act, and the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act (the Colorado version of the ADA) and is ready to fight for you and your rights to be free from discrimination related to your use of a service animal. Whether you are facing housing, transportation, employment, or access discrimination based on your disability, Bergsten Law Offices has the knowledge, experience, and compassion to get you and your service animal the justice Federal and State Law provides!
The United States Constitution guarantees every citizen certain enumerated rights to safeguard our lives, liberties, and property. No one is above the law, including municipal, state, and federal governments, and their employees. Section 1983 of the Civil Rights Acts provides the vehicle to sue governments and their employees for violations to your life, liberty, or property. All of these rights include actions the government took against you and/or your dog: we have successfully sued police departments for the shooting death of peoples' dogs. Call us today to find out how we can help!
Bergsten Law Offices knows that the criminal justice system can be a scary place: cops make you feel like you are the worst person in the world, prosecutors try to bully you into pleading guilty, and judges do not feel like your friend! Bergsten Law will make sure all evidence is properly reviewed and the police and the prosecution are held to the Constitutional standards that protect you and your rights!
Kristina is an excellent attorney. She was extremely dedicated to my case. She gave me the strength and confidence to continue my battle for custody of my dog. I cannot say enough good qualities about her. I highly recommend her.
In a day and age where everybody seems to be fighting and there's conflict everywhere, Kristina Bergsten brings a calm, experience to any situation. I hired her because I was being sued by my ex for the custody of our cats. She did not sugarcoat anything or tell me what I wanted to hear, instead, she clearly and kindly explained the law and took a strong stand for me.
If you want a dignified, affordable and experienced attorney, hire Kristina Bergsten!
I was very pleased with the help I received from Kristina Bergsten for my situation. She communicated with me well, during the time between court and was confident in her approaches. The judge even mentioned that I had good representation. My situation was over by pretrial as she was able to talk the DA into something I agreed on.
We know how important your furry family member is to you. Whether they have no legs, two legs, or four or more legs, our priority is making sure you and your pet receive the best representation possible.
When you visit our office, feel free to bring your pet to meet us
- they say, animals are very good judges of character!
