    Christopher quite simply one of the best attorneys I know. When I was an Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney for over 14 years, I had the opportunity - as opposing counsel - to see Christopher in action (most often to the detriment of my formerly rock-solid prosecution case). I have tried cases against Christopher that ranged from the most minor traffic tickets to the most serious criminal matters. Take it from a former prosecutor who had to oppose him in court, Christopher is a brilliant, eloquent and highly effective trial attorney. He combines the qualities of toughness on behalf of his clients, with an affability that makes him well liked by judges, prosecutors and the entire legal community. I give Christopher my highest recommendation.
