From day 1, Chris was very attentive and caring towards my needs with my broken hand form a car crash. He was on me about following up on medical appointments and making sure my doctor's were treating me fairly. The insurance company wanted me to take ten or fifteen thousand for my injury. Chris told me not to do it and he got me $75,000. He's a friendly lawyer who explained everything as many times as I needed it and gave me documentation to see so I could hold it in my hand.
Let me start by explaining a little about my case. I was in a car accident hit from behind at a red light on my way to work. This resulted in a very bad back injury and I had to obtain a lawyer. At the time I had no idea who to obtain I went to one of the lawyers that advertise a lot. This was my first mistake!! Big mistake!! Let’s just say things got worst from there. I was denied by no fault following an IME appointment and needed to have back surgery. At this time I was told by my lawyer there was nothing that could be done and no one would cover the back surgery. I was pulled out of work with no money and almost lost everything. I was in a great deal of pain at this time. We decided to fire my current lawyer and seek other representation. I made an appointment with Chris O’Brien to discussed some of my biggest considers. The most important thing for my family was not having the no fault coverage that was wrongly denied. I needed the surgery in order to be able to work again. So this was my first consider, the second was I wanted the denied no fault overturned. I wanted the insurance company to have to pay for my medical bills I was incurring from this accident. After discussing these issues with Chris I obtained him as my lawyer. My husband and I felt welcomed and Chris assured us he would find justices in this. This is where everything got better for me and my family. Chris worked on my case and things just kept getting better. He kept me updated and I received my surgery very quickly. I started receiving my disability payments shortly after. I received a settlement and my no fault was over turned; all my medical bills were paid. Chris is very honest and sincere and you just don’t find lawyers like this.
Chris and his office staff are just amazing and I could not thank them enough for everything they did for me and my family. They made me feel like part of their family. Thank you to everyone at the O’Brien Firm!!!!!
Chris is not only a fantastic lawyer, but a great person as well. Anything I ever needed was only a phone call away. He treated my case and myself with utmost respect. Chris will do anything in his power to obtain the benefits a person deserves. He went above and beyond his call of duty multiple times for me and I can't imagine what I would have done without him. The process of my lawsuit was extremely difficult and daunting but with Chris as my lawyer I was able to come out on top every step of the way. Chris's staff is also a pleasure to work with. They got to know me on a first name basis and were just as excited as I was when I heard the news that my case was won. True compassion all around.
Chris is definitely understanding and willing to work through anything. He is so supportive and works extremely hard no matter what. He dedicates himself to every person.
My case involved extremely personal issues and he always treated me with kindness and respect.
Chris has an excellent reputation, is fair and is always willing to help. His office staff is terrific and easy to get along with. He got us good results and kept us informed along the way.
When I first met Chris,,I told him I wouldn't be suing anyone. All I wanted was to have my bills paid...well as time progressed and doctors said my husband had a brain injury..He couldn't work. Chris step up to the plate did what he needed to do..He did above and beyond for my family.he was always just a phone call away..I didn't worry about anything,Chris just took care of it...I think Chris is The Best there is.
I hired Mr. O'Brien based on this website and I am really glad that I did. He made sure the insurance company paid me for everything like my medical bills and my pain and suffering. The company wanted to pay me less but once Mr. O'Brien got involved they changed there tune. I am really glad he was my lawyer.
Chris took care of my family and I during the Wilson Central School case that started in 2008. Through out the years Chris has been very diligent in his work and very responsive to my family's wants and needs. He is extremely intelligent about the law and prepared me for trial to where I felt bulletproof. Chris is very easy to talk to and when it comes down to business, he is a "no-nonsense" kind of guy. I put a lot of trust in Chris through out the years and I could not imagine a better person to handle this case.
I found Mr. O'Brien from avvo.com. I wasn't sure what to expect. He is definitely different than the lawyers I met with from Mattar and Cellino's offices. He met with me personally and told me he would handle my case from the start to the finish. He did justr that.
I had a back injury and I wound up having surgery. The back doctor said he had heard nothing but good things about Mr. O'Brien, that he is a fighter but is really nice to his clients. I couldn't agree more. I know he has his kids certain nights, but he told me I could always call him on his cell phone. That killed me---a lawyer giving me his cell phone number so that he was always available? That was unbelievable. But he actually answers it at night and called me back one night on a Sunday night when I had only left him a message that morning!
Mr. O'Brien made sure I got every dollar of the insurance policy that was availabnle. The adjuster wanted us to take less than half but Mr. O'Brien kept fighting for me and got me a great settlement. Every time I had questionsd, it was good to know I would get to speak to him directly. He kept asking me 'what other questions do you have" and I never felt rushed. This is the way a lawyer should be.
If you want a lawyer who is really good at what he does, Mr. O'Brien is the guy!
Christopher was always there for me. I had so many questions and he always made time to answer them. Sometimes he would even call me at night if he didn't get back to me mduring the day. He was never rude or mean to me like my first lawyer was. I switched to Chris and he explained everything. He made me feel like I was his only client even though I know I asked alot of questions.
