Chantelle is a partner with The Geller Law Group who focuses her practice on all aspects of estate planning. From wills that appoint guardians for minor children to complex trusts, Chantelle is focused on ensuring that clients understand their personalized documents and how they work, not only during life but also after death.
The majority of Chantelle's time is spent working closely with clients to create personalized initial estate plans, including the preparation of advanced directives, such as powers of attorney and medical directives. She counsels clients on benefits of various trusts, including irrevocable life insurance trusts (ILITs), qualified terminable interest property (QTIP) trusts, and credit shelter trusts, and walks clients through the benefits of utilizing such structures. Chantelle also represents clients in probate and guardianship proceedings and provides counsel for trust administration.
Chantelle is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, where she focused her studies on health law and bioethics. She received her undergraduate degree from Indiana University and is an avid college sports fan.
Along with practicing in the area of trusts and estates, Chantelle shares her knowledge of this area of law as an adjunct professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School of George Mason University. She gives back to her community through service on the Board of Directors at Dandelion Meadow and on the advisory board at The Shelter Connection. When not practicing law, Chantelle can be found teaching classes at Pure Barre or curled up with her dogs and a good book.
