Cristina Coletta Blau
Cristina’s practice is focused on estate planning, tax planning, trust and estate administration and charitable planned giving. Her estate planning practice involves the creation of complex custom-drafted trusts as well as plans for individuals and families who are at the outset of their estate planning journey. Cristina enjoys and has experience working with international families on multi-national estate planning matters. Cristina has a special interest in working with college-bound students and their families to create “starter” sets of documents that will carry recent high school graduates through their college years. As part of her practice, Cristina provides support to members of Seegel Lipshutz & Lo’s litigation team in connection with complex probate litigation cases which require analysis of tax and estate planning issues.
Prior to joining the firm, Cristina was an Associate with Rackemann, Sawyer & Brewster and Casner & Edwards.
