Christine C. Karr LLC, is a practice devoted to probate law, with a special emphasis on providing probate assistance to plaintiff’s attorneys.

About me:

I graduated from DePaul University College of Law in 1991, and immediately joined a firm which specialized in representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice and personal injury cases.   Having been employed as a law clerk for this firm during my last two years of law school, I was pleased to join the practice as an associate, and spent the next 16 years investigating and prosecuting medical negligence and personal injury cases.

As the youngest associate in a well-established firm, I took on the role of handling all of the probate  needs of the firm and our clients, from getting approval of settlements by the probate division, to establishing decedent’s estates and estates for minors and disabled adults.  I enjoyed the process of assisting our clients with their probate needs during the pendency of their cases, and ultimately, after the cases were resolved by way of settlement or verdict.

In 2008, I had an opportunity to become affiliated with a firm specializing in Probate law, and I seized the opportunity.  With my background in litigation, I was given the opportunity to handle guardianships and decedent’s estate with contested issues, and I found that my background was extremely beneficial in advocating for my clients and ultimately resolving the cases.

I believe that I offer a personal touch to my clients, being accessible and responsive to their needs and questions.  Additionally, I like to involve my clients in the process and actively seek their input.  There are often multiple approaches to any given problem, and it is always my practice to advise my clients of all options for resolving the issue at hand.  I learned many years ago that if I do not know the answer to a question, I will readily admit it, but will do whatever is required to find it.  This is my approach to the practice of law.

Please feel free to contact me, if I can answer any questions or if you need assistance with a probate law issue.  It will be my pleasure to assist you.

Initial consultations are always without charge.
