    I did not know what it really meant to be an attorney until I worked for Chris as a law clerk. He is a compassionate, diligent, and experienced criminal defense attorney who never loses sight of the fact that his work can make a difference in the lives of his clients. He taught me much of what I know about being an attorney, and I consider myself fortuntate to have worked for him.
