I’ve known Chris for many years and have great confidence in his skill as an attorney. He is one of the most well versed and knowledgeable tax attorneys in the Birmingham area. His strong background in business allows him to be a great negotiator. He is also very experienced in complex estate law and litigation. Chris is one of the best lawyers I’ve had the pleasure to work with and would feel confident recommending him to any fiend or family member in need of his legal expertise.
