Christina L. Hebert, Attorney, CPA

Christina has experience in both the accounting and the legal fields.

Prior to going to law school she practiced as a Certified Public Accountant (“CPA”). During that time she learned valuable skills that are applicable to individuals and business on handling finances and complying with governmental regulations. She became very familiar with accounting, productivity, and business software. Accounting also gave her an opportunity to supervise others, work in large groups, and work individually on complex projects.

As part of the GQ Law team, Christina now applies her skills to help individuals, families, and small businesses handle their tax situations. She leads the GQ Law Tax Legal department and helps clients get in compliance with tax laws, manage their finances, and negotiates settlements of tax situations.

With her experience in the Estate Planning arena, she is also a great help to Lizette and the Estate Planning & Living Trust team.

Her energy level is contagious and you will surely enjoy working with Christina.
