    I've had the privilege of knowing Chris for over twenty years. He is, without question, one of the most intelligent, honest, resourceful, and dedicated attorneys I've ever known. I'm also fortunate enough to count Chris among my closest friends. I would strongly and without any reservation whatsoever, recommend Chris to anyone in need of the services of an outstanding, uniquely qualified workers' compensation attorney.
