Christine Understands. Losing a loved one is one of the most trying times in an individual’s life. Christine knows first hand what it feels like to deal with a loss and the accompanying stress. Christine lost her father when she was just 21 years old. Before his death he had remarried and since he failed to create an estate plan during his lifetime, state law controlled what happened to his estate at his death. This resulted in an outcome he would not have wanted, but it was too late. Although she could not do much to change the outcome for her father, Christine has dedicated her career to helping other families either by the creation of an estate plan, qualifying for medicaid or by assisting them every step of the way with their probate case.
Christine is now an advocate for the importance of planning ahead and often speaks on the topic throughout Florida. Currently, she serves on the Board of Directors for Ms. Esquire, has been chosen as an American Bar Association Scholar, and is a graduate of Elder College. Christine has been recognized by Super Lawyers for four consecutive years (2018, 2019, 2020, & 2021) as a Rising Star for exhibiting excellence in her field, a distinction that only 2.5% of attorneys in Florida receive. She has also been selected by her fellow professionals for inclusion in the Florida Trend’s Legal Elite list, rated as one of three top rated estate planning attorneys by Three Best Rated and recognized as one of Fort Lauderdale’s 2020 Top Lawyers.
