I first talked with Chris to discuss my options for divorce, unsure of where to start with my case. Chris not only explained all of my options clearly and in a way that I understood them but Chris and Matt were both very self-assured and confident from start to finish. They made me feel like I was going to successfully survive the process. My case did take a long time, but their perseverance and skill produced very successful outcome for me. My marriage was a long marriage and there were a lot of finances to be sorted out. Chris and Matt were able to collaborate with other specialist and research and apply today’s law in order to secure my 20 years of wealth accumulation. Through collaborating with other professionals and strategically working my case facts, they were able to secure my finances and bring my case to a resolution that I am very satisfied with. Going into this process, I thought that my ex would get half of everything that I have worked so hard for. However, Chris was able to protect my assets and reveal true separate property by tracing finances back many years. I would hire either of these guys again for any future legal needs and recommend them to anyone who may need their services. They are excellent at keeping clients informed and they are very responsive to any questions or concerns along the way.

Found Christopher Ford when checking on the computer for an attorney to handle my temporary stalking and harassment protection order. Couldn't have chosen the most knowledgeable and comforting attorney. I was feeling anxious and couldn't relax and he calmed me down. He did an incredible job of handling my case and we came out winning. I would definitely recommend Chris to every person who is looking for a trustworthy attorney.

I felt very comfortable with Chris and Teresa. His recommendations were appropriate for my situation. I never waited for a response and was able to have my questions answered promptly. Teresa was very kind and sympathetic during our phone conversations. My worries were kept to a minimum as the case seemed to get more complicated. I would use Chris for any legal matters in the future.

I met Christopher Ford a year ago to handle a DUI. First off he and his staff made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I was the only one that mattered. During my case Mr. Ford got to know me and was concerned not only about my case but me personally. I never felt rushed or just another number on his schedule. During meetings on my case he also provided valuable information to me about my divorce that I already had someone else handle. Should of had him handle that!
The thing that impressed me the most is that I had to appear for a minor follow up in court. I was in the court room and Chris walked in before the proceedings. I asked, "why are you here for this?" Christopher simply said, "because I'm your attorney". After that, I would have him represent me on anything he and his firm can do.
With that said, I am having him work on an LLC for a business venture I'm working on. I would not trust anyone else to handle my personal or professional legal issues.

When the going got tough for me and my kids, Chris got going.... He was very diligent in making sure the out come of my divorce and custody case were what me and my children needed. I felt very secure knowing he was by my side. Chris was very quick to respond to any concerns I had and always kept me in the loop to make sure I was informed. He is honest and reliable.
Thank you Chris for making my divorce as pain free and complicated as possible

Mr. Ford handled my DUI case in 2012. He ensured the matter wrapped up quickly and efficiently. He always answered my calls and kept me in the loop and that helped put my mind at ease during this very stressful time in my life.

I have personally known Mr. Ford since high school and wanted a professional trustworthy attorney that i could count on to handle my very complicated family law custody case without being charged to death by attorney's fees. I hired Chris Ford and Danielle Dawson to handle my family custody complaint case. Dawson and Ford have been nothing short of amazing. They know every aspect of Family Law and produce outstanding work. After a lengthy process of Stipulating to agreeable custody terms of my son his mother filed an additional motion to set aside our agreement based purely on anger. Chris and Danielle wiped the floor with opposing counsel at the hearing and the Judge denied all of my sons mothers requests in the motion to set aside.
Before meeting with Dawson and Ford i was barely able to see my new born son a few times a month and was being hounded by the child support division for support that she claimed was not being paid that was in fact being paid.
After Dawson & Ford i know have Joint Physical and Joint Legal custody of my son and have him 3 to 4 days per week. If you are seeking custody of your children why put your life in the hands of a incompitent attorney who is out to bleed you dry of attorney's fees. I highly recomend Dawson & Ford for any Family legal matters because they are amazing at what they do and they fight for your best interests.

Mr. Ford was there for me in a difficult time in my life. He helped to negotiate a favorable contract for me in a stressful time in my business career. His confidence and customer service made me feel good about my situation and it was reflected in the excellent outcome he secured on my behalf. I would recommend Mr. Ford for anyone seeking an attorney.

We had a unusual case where our neighbor was suing us over our palm trees. Chris was always available to answer questions about our case. If he did not get right on the phone he called me back the same day! He was honest and upfront!

I was referred to Mr. Ford by another attorney to handle a contract that I needed created. Throughout the entire time I worked with this attorney, he answered all of my questions patiently and thoroughly. He was able to explain difficult concepts to me and ensured that I understand everything prior to moving forward. He was extremely professional, kept every scheduled meeting we had, and answered my emails/calls in a timely manner. I'm also very pleased with the final contract that was drawn. Mr. Ford made me feel confident in his legal abilities and made me comfortable throughout the time that I worked with him. I would highly recommend this attorney to other individuals.

Chris was available while he represented me. I emailed him once at 11:30 at night and he responded by midnight! He is very knowledgable, and he helped me to achieve my goals. He has a great customer service department working with him so if he is in court answers are still available.
I would not walk into court without Chris by my side.

Chris did a really great job. He came onto my case with little time to prepare for trial, but did great! it was a long hard year and thanks to Chris my divorce is finalized and the custody outcome was exactly what I hoped for!

My divorce/ custody case went on for years. When Chris started his own office, I specifically had to find him after he had left his previous one. I was not going to trust my case to anyone else. Every lawyer will tell you they can't make any promises, but while Chris says the same thing, he will tell you how he believes it will go, based on his knowledge of the laws, and dealing with the judges themselves, and he was usually right. Having his faith behind what was going on in all the chaos was a huge part in getting me through it all. I will never use another lawyer for any issues I have in the future; not only do I feel as though I know him well, but he took care of my family. He had to put up with an extraordinary amount of crap, but he was always there. Thank you so much!

I was recommended to Chris Ford by an attorney i had contacted from the phone book.
My case was an extremely complex divorce and custody battle.At my initial consultation with Chris and his partner Danielle Dawson i was informed of how difficult my case was going to be and of several different ways to proceed.We agreed on a course of action.I left the office relieved and assured.
We had to change our direction half way through due to my wife's actions,but we proceeded on the offensive!!!
To cut a long story short,i gained custody of my two young boys in the end,against all the odds.
I would recommend Christopher Ford to anyone who needs legal representation.

I would like to start off by saying that previous to the case for which I was referred to Mr. Chris Ford , I had very little knowledge and personal experience with the court systems, the law, or truly anything of such nature.
Therefore, when I was suddenly faced with the task of hiring a lawyer for my case I felt as if I was drowning in information and names--I had no idea what lawyer to contact. Most importantly, I had no idea about whom my family and I would trust in helping us successfully maneuver quickly in and out of the justice system. However, when a close and trusted friend recommended Chris Ford, I decided that I would go to Ford for a consultation.
When I met Ford during our first meeting, I was left feeling relieved and even happy about my case. Happy because Ford reassured me that I had nothing to worry about. "I'll take it from here," he said, "you just focus on school and your normal everyday life."
That very same attitude, of being 100% there for and helpful to me, was carried out throughout the entire process. I received regular emails and calls from Chris Ford personally informing me on the progress of the case--not once did I feel that I had picked the wrong lawyer.
I strongly recommend Chris Ford because of his professionalism and knowledge, but most importantly because of his down to earth persona. It's great to know that you have a strong yet personable lawyer handling your case.
