    Chris Coleman is an absolute professional. He routinely displays tireless dedication to both his clients, and knowledge of the law at the center of his cases. Chris is one of the few attorneys in Dutchess County that I can say, without one bit of hesitation, is fully capable of handling absolutely any issue that arises during representation of a client. He is intelligent, thorough, hard-working and an all-around fantastic attorney.
