    I first had the privilege of working with Mr. Joseph while I served as a prosecutor in Shawnee county, Kansas, one of the many northeast Kansas counties in which Mr. Joseph practices. Mr. Joseph was always very well prepared to defend his clients and as a prosecutor I found him to be a zealous advocate. As a prosecutor, I always knew when I went to court with Chris Joseph I'd better be on my game! Now as a defense attorney peer, I again have the privilege of working with Mr. Joseph. He is always well prepared and communicates regularly and effectively with his clients to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of their case. Mr. Joseph is learned in the law and a terrific trial lawyer. I would recommend Chris Joseph without equivocation.
