  • James P. Frederick

    Cristian and I practice in some of the same areas of law. For this reason, I have had an opportunity to review a number of his answers. He is spot on in terms of the law and his answers offer helpful and practical advice. He appears to be very committed to helping the client determine the best estate planning tools to achieve their objectives. This makes it very easy to endorse Cristian and his services.
