I hired Chris based upon this very website and a glowing peer review. However, my experience was much different than the reviews I have seen here....

Chris is an outstanding attorney and I would definitely recommend him. Chris possesses many positive traits, which makes him a great attorney....

I used to work on the other side of the Courtroom from Chris when I was with the Muskegon County Prosecutor's office. During that time, Chris was quite courteous, knowledgeable, and very helpful to me as a rookie prosecutor while still effectively advocating for his clients. Many people do not realize that a well prepared defense attorney, and not necessarily the loudest and rudest, is the greatest tool in getting better plea bargains for clients. I truly learned as much from Chris as I did my supervisors. Now I am a defense attorney myself and I still find myself operating in the mold of Mr. Houghtaling.
