  • Guy Thomas Conti

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Chris' practice is client-focused. Chris does real estate closings, short sales and probate work. I have referred several people to him because they didn't need or weren't ready for a bankruptcy. Chris is patient, a good listener, reassuring and extremely competent (by the reports back I get from the referrals). He thoroughly examines a situation and works with the client to come up with a custom plan of action and flawlessly executes the plan, resulting in many happy clients. Of course, success in a legal endeavor is never assured and Chris fully briefs his clients as to possible outcomes. Chris is honest and caring as a person as well as a lawyer. I highly recommend Chris Sevick.
