About Christine

Learn Christine’s areas of practice.

I am a North Bay family and elder law attorney who has been licensed to practice for over 20 years.  In addition to my law license, I possess a masters degree in counseling with a specialization in marriage and family therapy. I find that this combination of law and counseling is especially beneficial to my clients. I have a unique ability to understand client concerns and work with families experiencing stressful transitions.  An effective lawyer listens to her clients, thinks two steps ahead, and finds ways to achieve client goals.  I understand which situations require cooperation and flexibility and which demand zealous advocacy.  I enjoy family and elder law and feel fortunate to have the opportunity to build lasting relationships with the families that I serve.

Fantastic Family Law Attorney
I had previously been represented by another firm in my lengthy and difficult divorce. Chris took over my case, and the remaining issues were rapidly and successfully resolved with a positive outcome. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the law were a great asset. Needless to say, I am extremely pleased and give her my highest recommendation.
