Real estate 

Whether you are an individual or a company wanting to buy, sell or develop, or if you have other real estate issues, you can look to Chris to:

  • Review title and clean up problems
  • Draft agreements, including options and rights of first refusal

No one likes to lose control of their affairs or leave a mess behind for others to pick up, and some advance planning can avoid both scenarios. Many of the tools available are simple and very cost-effective. An attorney like Chris can help you understand the options, consider second-level choices that are often overlooked (especially with do-it-yourself products) and set up a plan that will take care of your affairs if you become incapacitated and that will help your loved ones transition after you've gone. Chris can help with:

  • Wills, including trusts and guardianships for children
  • Revocable trusts (sometimes called living or inter vivos trusts)
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Property transfers or ownership changes to coordinate with your estate plan
  • Probate of estates, and pre-death options for avoiding probate
  • Protection of your rights as an heir or surviving spouse
