Chris assists clients by developing their estate plan, including drafting wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, powers of attorney, living wills and health care surrogates, and advises clients on estate tax and gift tax minimization strategies. His estates practice includes estate planning, estate and trust administration, estate tax planning, and selective estate and trust litigation. Chris also represents probate and trust administration clients throughout Florida.

Because estate planning and administration often involves real estate and closely held business interests, Chris assists clients with the transfer, sale, and management of these assets including complying with FIRPTA regulations. As part of Chris’s property practice, he represents clients involved in federal tax audits and appeals as well as tax-treaty compliance matters for international decedents owning U.S. real estate.

Chris is licensed to practice in Florida and New York. He also holds an AV rating, the highest rating by Martindale-Hubbell in the areas of Trusts and Estates, Taxation and Wills and Probate.

Prior to joining Henderson Franklin, Chris was in private practice in Naples for four and a half years and was associated with an Am Law 200 law firm in Naples for seven years. In his free time, Chris enjoys running, biking, and swimming, and fishing with his wife, two sons, and their Jack Russell Terrier.
