Whether you are dealing with the death of a loved one or contemplating what will happen to your family after you pass away, Chris Evans is here to help. Thoughtful, diligent, and strategic-minded, Chris can work with you to manage life’s ultimate questions.

Everyone should review their estate planning documents every three to five years and after any major life event. Chris will help you review your existing will, trust, power of attorney and any other estate planning document to help you determine whether any changes need to be made. If you are starting from scratch, Chris is here to learn what your estate planning goals are and work with you to put a plan in place that gives you peace of mind.

After a family member dies, you may be left wondering what to do. Chris can help guide you through the process of administering the estate. He will work with you to assess what needs to get done, develop a plan, manage conflicts among families and beneficiaries, and see the estate through to closing. For the more challenging conflicts that arise in probate, Chris litigates cases on behalf of personal representatives, beneficiaries, and other interested persons.

Chris can also help you with your real estate issues. If you are buying or selling real estate, dealing with easements or title issues, or running into trouble with your common interest community, call Chris.

Chris is tech savvy and always looking out for new legal and technological developments that may affect his clients. Prior to joining Smith, Paulson, O’Donnell & Erickson, he started his own firm in Austin, Texas and worked as a Reference Attorney for Thomson Reuters. In his free time, he enjoys kayaking, running, reading, and hikes with his wife and dog.
