5.0 stars 25 totalReview Christopher Pelli
When I recently found myself charged with a crime and needing a lawyer, I was beside myself. I worked for a couple lawyers to put myself through college and I know first hand that most of them live up to the bad reputations that lawyers in general have. But NOT Chris Pelli. He was professional, courteous, and I genuinely felt that he cared. He worked hard to get a satisfactory outcome for me. I am VERY happy with my choice to hire Chris. I hope to never again need an attorney, but if I do, I would not hesitate to hire him. I also would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family.
First let me start by saying NO I'm not a bad driver, and NO I don't have any DWI's, I just sometimes forget to check my mail which led me to missing a court date..Or 2or 3 for speeding tickets..I sought out to find a lawyer and ended up getting one of the best. I had a suspended license with several tickets not only did he get my suspension lifted Chris went to court for me, I wasn't able to get the time off from work so instead of rescheduling and putting it off,he took care of everything called me with the details and within a short time(very short) I was back to being a licensed driver. I would definitely recommend Chris, he is professional & he knows his sh×t!!!!! That's why I say Chris is the BEST LAWYER EVER!!!
I contacted Chris about 2 weeks after I made the biggest mistake of my life. It took me so long to contact a lawyer because I kept hoping it was all a very bad dream. I've never had a run in with the law before. My anxiety was through the roof. When I consulted with Chris, I felt a weight of my shoulder. Chris helped me get the charge dismissed, so it wouldn't affect my future or any career opportunities. If I ever need to hire another attorney again, Chris would be my first choice. Thank you for everything, Chris!!

I feel so bad for the late review... About a year and a half ago I woke up to find myself in Oneida County Jail. I was staying at the Turning Stone and took my normal dose of Ambien as well as a new script given to me by the VA. Apparently I slept walk and damaged a plastic camera dome and a bedside light. I soon found out they claimed my damages were $280, which is felony criminal mischief. They were holding me on $20000/ 40000 bail because I was from PA! My finance retained Chris, who immediately met me in jail and made sure I was seen ASAP for a bond reduction. They lowered it to $2000, the cost of extradition and I went home that day. In the end, he got me a plea bargain for a misdemeanor charge and a $500 fine. I recommend Chris to anyone who needs intelligent, competent representation. If I could give him 100 stars I would.

Chris Pelli is a life saver. I made a mistake that probably most people do everyday to help out a family member or a friend. I contacted Chris Pelli for help with my charges. I'd never been in serious trouble before but this matter was a serious one. From the start Chris Pelli helped! The day I hired him my stress was thru the roof! Chris put my mind at ease right away!! Hands down a life saver! If you need a great lawyer def contact Chris Pelli. One more thing anytime I needed to get ahold of Chris I could!!

As a current court employee working and residing in another county, I may know who to hire locally, but had no idea for Oneida county. I reached out to peers in Oneida County Courts and Chris was highly recommended. Working in the court system, you learn to not retain the cheapest or pick from tv ads. You want the best for your loved ones at a reasonable fee who is respected by his peers in the Courts, DA's office and Judges. That is when the best outcome can be reached. He handled my son's matter efficiently and helped my son receive a disposition that did not affect his career choices. If Chris worked in our county, he'd be recommended to everyone, but for those who need a competent, knowledgeable, respected and personable attorney in the Utica, Oneida area, please consider him. You will be taken care of and know that he cares about his clients immediately upon speaking with him and that he will do his very best representing you or your loved one who needs legal representation. I will honestly state that after initially talking with him, I immediately with great confidence, retained him to represent my son, as I knew based on my experience with criminal attorneys that my son was in good hands and that was a huge sigh of relief that any parent would want for their child. I was not wrong and he exceeded our expectations. Highly and confidently recommending to anyone who needs a competent, knowledgeable, respected and yet a caring and personable attorney !

I've relied on the services of Mr. Pelli on several occasions, mostly minor traffic violations. His conduct and timelines exceed any other lawyers I've used in the past. I can confidently recommend Mr. Pelli.

Chris is a consummate professional with the rare balance between professional expertise and personal service. I’m grateful to have hired an attorney that I feel comfortable speaking with as a layman, who in turn has the ability to navigate the legal domain with confidence. He’s a true natural and from the minute I sat down with him, there was no doubt that I could trust him and his ability to handle my case and it’s complexities.
