Kristy received her Juris Doctorate degree from Hofstra Law School, where she was selected for a Child and Family Advocacy Fellowship, and her Undergraduate degree from the University at Albany.  She is admitted to the Massachusetts Bar and the New York Bar.  While in law school, Kristy interned at the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, representing indigent clients in the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court.
