Chris is the best! She is very knowledgeable and very thorough.
I first came across Chris Lincoln when my sister was going through a nasty divorce. I had become involved because my sister’s house was financed in my name due to her now ex-husband’s bad credit. This made things very messy as far as the divorce and because the house was in my name I was dragged into it. I chose Chris because of her high ratings on AVVO and she did not let us down. I found Chris to be very professional, knowledgeable, thorough and efficient. By efficient I mean she would wait until she had a list of issues to discuss with the opposing attorney instead of calling or emailing for every little thing that came up and charging a minimum of 15 or 30 minutes which is a standard in the industry. This really helped keeping the costs down. Chris never gets flustered and always remains professional even when things get heated on the other side. She also pays close attention, picking and choosing her battles. An example, not spending $2,000 worth of her time fighting over a $1,500 couch. Some attorneys “will” do that. She advised and guided my sister and I through the divorce and got her a very fair deal and was able to handle my situation (protecting me) with the house being in my name. A few years after, my ex-wife and I decided to divorce. Again I turned to Chris. My ex-wife had hired an attorney but after discussing we found that we were in agreement on who got what so my ex-wife dismissed her attorney and we were able to work things out mutually with Chris’ help. This kept the costs way down and ended with both of us happy with the division of properties.
Years later when selling a property that was in both mine and my ex-wife’s name, the title company expressed some concerns that there may be some difficulty. Upon reading over the divorce papers they said it was a very, very thorough divorce decree and I was able to close without any issues. I have since used Chris again for my will and estate planning and am currently using her services for a durable power of attorney for a family member. I have a huge amount of trust in Chris, have recommended her to several people and would not hesitate to recommend her to a friend or family member.
