I was in trouble for the first time in my life. At a hearing with my Public Defender, My daughter caught Chris on his way out of court. For the first time in the month since I was arrested, someone seemed to understand my case. And knew exactly how to help me. I met Chris at his office the next day, and over the course of two weeks, He was there day or night with answers and support. I say two weeks, becuase my Public defender had my case for a month, and it only took Chris two weeks to have my case dismissed. I am certian, If I hadn't found Chris I would still be tied up in the courts, or in prison. I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone in my family, or my friends. The man is talented, professional, and trust worthy. Meeting him saved my life. There isn't enough thanks to give him. I will forever be greatful.. Thanks Chris. Elizabeth

I normally do not write reviews but Chris Welch is seriously one of the best attorneys I have ever had. I have had two attorneys before and they were horrible. Mr. Welch knew what he was talking about and could deliver results that kept my family and life in place. If it wasn't for him... I would be in prison rather than having my family and work in place. GOD BLESS Mr. Welch

Christopher P. Welch has integrity. He is a family man working to keep families (like ours) in tact. Our son Tommy had a surfing accident when he was 16 years old. The accident caused an undiagnosed Traumatic Brain injury, and that turned Tommy's life upside down. His surfboard snapped back on it's leash like a battering ram fracturing Tommy's skull, taking 75 stitches to close Tommy's right forehead. Tommy once the quintessential California beach boy, son/student/athlete, his life now fluctuates between homelessness, mental institutions, and criminal facilities. Tommy today is 40 years old. He self filmed 70 % of his own documentary called A Revolving Door. It short listed for an academy award in 2007. Attorney Christopher P. Welch met our son Tommy about 4-5 years ago. Mr. Welch represented Tommy in a psychiatric hospital court hearing and won. After Mr. Welch saw Tommy's film, he felt drawn/challenged to not only help our son, but our family too . Christopher Welch is as savvy as they come. Bright, witty and intelligent, he wins with truth and passion.WIth our son's lack of impulse control (due to the injury) Tommy looks at life like it's all green lights. There's never, a yellow or a red light. Mr. Christopher Welch has made life easier for Tommy, our family and our community. When there's been an opportunity to get our son conserved by the county, Chris Welch has managed to do that. Mr. Welch's, criminal law studies know how to differentiate between criminal law and mental health issues. Most of the time in our son's case the two collide. Jail is not the place for our son, and Mr. Welch works very hard at keeping our son in recovery programs, hospitalization when necessary, and on medication at all times.

No way, congrats on your own firm. You were the best public defender ever. Hope you remember me but you got both of my 11550's dismissed a few years ago and iv been clean ever since.

Mr. Welch represented my cousin who was facing 25 years in prison and he got the case dismissed at a preliminary hearing. The codefendants lawyers basically watched him do all the work, and beat all three of their case.
