  • Daniel Eliot DeWoskin

    Chris Stombaugh is without a doubt one of the finest advocates in the practice of law today. I have had the distinct honor of watching him prepare his cases on several occasions. Chris is always engaged in learning new methods and enhancing the skills that will better help him achieve results for his clients. I am envious of the intellectual abilities Chris has, but more envious of his heart. The greatest attribute that Chris brings to each and every case is his devotion to his clients. He knows his clients and their cases as he knows his own family, and delivers no less than he would if his client were a close relative. I am honored to call him a colleague and consider myself fortunate to have him as a friend.

  • Michael Jay Leizerman

    Chris is an amazing lawyer who is thorough, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. His several multi-million dollar verdicts have come in difficult cases. He is extremely likeable, which only adds to his appeal before a jury. I have worked with him on cases in which his skills have certainly maximized value for an injured family.
