Christine SmithLegal Assistant
Prior to joining the Ettinger Law Firm, Christine worked for an elder law firm where she supported two attorneys in guardianship, estate planning, and Medicaid matters, as well as worked directly with the Department of Veterans Affairs regarding custodianships. Family and public service is very important. Both sides of Christine's family pursued careers dedicated to public service including different branches of the military, police officers, teachers and attorneys. Christine's husband retired from the Nassau County Police Department after serving just shy of 30 years. Rather than pursuing teaching, Christine was fortunate to be a stay at home mom during her son's formative years. However, after her son left for college, she decided to go back to work for an elder law firm and was pleased to join the friendly staff at Ettinger Law Firm. Planning for the future and protecting one's legacy is an idea Christine can confidently get behind.
