  • Scott Shannon Gray

    Chris is the best criminal appellate lawyer I know. If the result matters, you should hire Chris for your criminal appeal. There is literally no one else I would pick for a criminal appeal over Chris. He has a reputation for being the most prepared, and hardest working appeals lawyer who puts a ridiculous amount of effort into each case.
