  • Brian Vincent Ebert

    Chris is the 'go to' guy on criminal cases for my clients. I only handle civil matters, so I refer all the criminal issues to Chris, and I have uniformly received excellent feedback on Chris' services. I see him in court frequently, and he has a good reputation with the prosecutors which allows him to get the best possible results for clients, and he is not afraid to take a case to trial if he believes the client can do better than what the prosecutor offers. I fully endorse Chris for criminal work.
