I endorse this lawyer. Christopher is active in the legal community and well known to many of us. He offers great advice and experience to both clients and fellow attorneys. When he gives advice to fellow attorneys, I can only say "well said." He knows his stuff and where to go for areas outside his expertise. I have referred clients who were pleased with the experience.

Chris is a focused and diligent advocate for his clients interests. He is well prepared for trial but is very creative when it comes for fashioning settlements which are mindful of the interests of the children of a family in transition. Also, he is one if the best attorneys for the child that I came to know during my 10 year term as a family court judge.
