Chris has been appointed as a Best Interest Attorney on behalf of minor children as well. Chris is equally well-versed handling complex financial cases, which may require tracing of marital and non-marital funds, knowledge of the tax consequences associated with property disposition or awards of support, and forensic accounting and related principles.
