Chris Barclay has served as our family's attorney for nearly 30 years. Over the last 20 years as my personal attorney, Chris has provided outstanding estate planning and legal counsel for family and personal trusts, wills, ILITS, POAs. Prior to becoming my personal attorney, Chris served my grandfather in a similar capacity, however he was involved in a wider variety of contract, real estate, tax, and business law.
Chris is a trusted and valued advisor to my family and I look forward to Chris continuing in this role on behalf of our children in the future. His consistency, dependability, availability, and quality of advice are just a few of the reasons why Chris will continue to serve as our legal counsel.
I appreciate his conservative approach to estate and tax planning as I know that all of our legal documents and strategies will withstand legal tests and protect our interests for the long term.
Chris is very disciplined in how he documents his effortization against our needs and I have found him to be affordable in terms of giving our family access to his extensive experience in areas that matters to us.
One more point, because estate and tax laws are constantly changing, I appreciate how Chris works hard to stay on top of the laws, how to protect our interests, as well as differences by state. What gives me great confidence in his value is that we are not constantly changing our strategies and tactics based on the latest tax court rulings and the like which helps me sleep at night knowing that our wishes and intentions are well articulated in our legal documents.
I strongly recommend Chris to anyone seeking a highly capable attorney that knows how to integrate your family's interests into legal documents that protect your wealth and execute your intentions in all matters relating to estate planning.

I have worked with Chris on both my own personal matters and those of several of my clients. Chris has always been able to respond quickly to the issues requiring attention and my referrals have always resulted in a positive response from the client being referred. There is no better indication of my confidence in Chris than my continued willingness to refer business to him.
