Knowledgeable and Responsive
I hired Christie Tournet to guide my siblings and I through the rather complicated estate of my late father. Christie was knowledgeable, thorough, very responsive and we were very pleased with how she navigated us through some trying problems. Her fees were also very reasonable for all that she did. Because of our experience, I brought my mother in to do her will, and I plan for her to do my will in the fall. I highly recommend her.

Very Competent
I recently hired Christie to take care of a succession for my family. After my experience with her I decided to have her look over my then current Will and found that it was not written accurately to what I actually wanted to happen with my estate. I hired her to draw it up correctly and left feeling confident that my actual wants will be carried out upon my eventual passing.

Exceptional Attorney
Christie Tournet is very knowledgeable and professional.  I sought advice from her with regard to an estate planning and probate matter.  I had questions about my grandmother’s estate and succession and did not know how to proceed.  She met with me to discuss what needed to be done and she was able to address all of my concerns and did so compassionately, enabling my family and I to finalize my grandmother’s estate.  I highly recommend Christie Tournet to anyone seeking an attorney for any type of estate planning, probate/succession matters.
