Wonderful Attorney - very knowledgeable and professional
Christine represented me for my recent home closing; she was able to handle all details and made it very simple and straightforward, even though the buyer had some challenging situations to deal with. I had to leave out of town prior to closing, but Christine was able to smoothly close the transaction and even paid my water bill (which you have to do in person). Would absolutely recommend that you work with her. She knows the law very well and will represent your best interests!

Hard-working, very professional, excellent!
I was able to utilize her services for a real estate closing. She was extremely helpful and efficient. She responded professionally and promptly regularly. Her advice and legal acumen was excellent. She exceeded my expectations and I would recommend her again.

Wonderful lawyer, highly recommend
Christine helped us with our real estate transactions and I could not have picked a better lawyer for these transactions. Her rates are very reasonable and she was extremely helpful during the negotiations and execution of the contracts. Two thumbs up!

Great experience with Christine Alt
Christine was a pleasure to work with; I hired her to do my estate planning and she made the entire process very easy and completed everything in a timely manner. I highly recommend her.

Great Work! Lucky to have her on our team!
We are repeat customers. Christine helped me with a real estate closing on my investment property and a will. She was very patient with me and my several questions about wills and trusts. She drafted me a detailed will for a fair price. On our real estate transaction, I was worried that the deal was done when a large electrical problem was found. She managed to quickly negotiate with the buyers and keep the transaction moving along. She will always be my first call for any legal work!

Great Experience
We used Christine for our home sale and subsequent dream home purchase. She was great with us. She answered all of our questions and even handled some unforeseen last minute complicated issues that came up with our buyers. We could not have gotten through it without her holding our hand every step of the way! Both of our transactions were quick and painless thanks to her, even when she had to whip up a complicated escrow agreement on the spot to deal with an unexpected repair issue. We could see that the other professionals in the room really respected her. Five stars!

DO NOT HIRE
I spoke to Christine and she said that she would represent me for $500 and to email her my paperwork which I did the same day. I then emailed her several times and called her for a month and she has not responded to this day. I hope she didn't die or get seriously hurt but if she is still in business, she is not a responsive lawyer and should be avoided. In the very least tell me that you are no longer interested and don't just ignore me after saying you would represent me in the civil matter.

Response from Christine Alt June 19, 2018
Ethical rules do not permit me to respond to the specifics of your matter, even though we never had an attorney client relationship. I never took any money from you and I never sent you an engagement letter. After briefly looking into your matter at no cost to you, I realized that I could not help you. I did not take your money because I could not represent you. I am sorry that my honest and ethical behavior upset you. I would be happy to speak to you further at any time.
