Christopher S. Nudo
As founder of the law firm, Christopher Nudo has focused the practice on estate-planning and has applied his Christian values for over three decades. This approach helped his clients maximize the transfer of wealth and assets. He also ushers clients through the legal complexities of real estate and business matters. He’s garnered a cache of industry awards, including the American Jurisprudence Award and rankings as Super Lawyer and Top Attorney in North America. He’s served as in-house general counsel and advisor to boards of directors. Yet to Christopher the business is very personal. From drafting wills and trusts to assigning powers of attorney and performing trust administration services, he works with each client personally and he makes every relationship about the client. “It is all about what is appropriate for the client and their circumstances. It can be something as simple as meeting in the evening, or meeting at their house, working out payment plans—financing shouldn’t be a limitation in getting their plans done,” he explains.
Christopher began his career in 1993 practicing with his dad at his firm of 25 lawyers. In 2012, he made the switch to a church lawyer and started representing ministries on a full-time basis. In 2015 he transitioned to estate planning and which eventually became his own firm, with offices in Elgin, Schaumburg and Arlington Heights, Illinois. Christopher is a member of the Wealth Council, one of the most elite associations of estate-planning professionals in the country. He serves families across the greater Chicago metro area with a focus on the northwest suburbs. The majority of clients served have a net worth of $500,000.00 to $3,500,000.00. “Middle America is the segment of clientele where I really enjoy helping people,” he shares. While his goal is to maximize wealth for his clients, he holds a unique definition of the word. “There is a better word for ‘wealth’—an accumulation of one’s life.”
As the leader of a Christ-centered practice, Christopher is the epitome of its motto, “Leading with integrity” and the bible verse, 2 Corinthians 8:21, upon which it is founded: “For we aim at what is honorable, not only in the Lord’s sight, but also in the sight of man.” Through faith-based guidance, he leads his clients through the complicated estate-planning process to design a plan tailored to each of their unique goals and needs to give them peace of mind that their loved ones are taken care of.
His practice also places a strong emphasis on caring for the local church and charities. In addition to supporting these organizations through the practice itself, Christopher works with clients to give back to these causes during their lifetime or at their death, including establishing trusts for people’s pets.
Christopher is a member of the Northwest Suburban Bar Association, the Illinois Bar Association, and the Kane County Bar Association. He received his law degree from Thomas S. Cooley Law School, and he holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Creighton University.
