    Having worked with Chris on the other side of the table as opposing counsel, I can say he is very knowledgeable, comes to court fully prepared and if he's representing you you're in good shape.

  • Sean Patrick O'Hanlon

    I have had many courtroom experiences with Mr. Roberts over the past several years, and have consulted with him on several of my clients' legal matters. I know him to be a very knowledgeable attorney with a sharp analytical approach to case evaluation, and he is an excellent advocate in the courtroom. I would give Chris the highest professional endorsement for civil litigation, particularly for class actions.
