Running a business is no easy thing. One has to take care of their customers and employees all the same. There are many challenges to being successful and one of them is navigating the legal system. Christian is that guy if you need some help in becoming familiar with the way courts (and other companies lawyers) handle the legalities in construction.
We were involved with multiple lawsuits that were unbeknownst to us until being served. The illegal actions were performed by someone in our company that we very much trusted. It was a very difficult situation to handle and we knew we needed legal help. The Linville firm had helped us in the past set up really good contracts for construction, so we decided to use them for our new legal matters. Christian was not only very understanding of the situation but he showed us that he was working hard on our case with continual updates of how the courts and lawyers were proceeding. Also, his advice for how we should act within our own company was very honest and orderly. In the end, he succeeded in getting us out of an ugly legal battle.
Christian represent me in three Lawsuits starting from 2009. Initially, I was very stressful and frightened to deal with legal matter. Christian was very patient to help me, provide professional advice, follow through my case very carefully. Always consider my difficulties and concern. He treat me like his friend. He helped me to win two Lawsuits and successfully to collect the court judgement. Another one is still ongoing. I always trust him and have fully confident on him. I recommend Christian to my sister and friends. All are very pleased and satisfied the service provided by Christian. I highly recommend Christian to others.
Luck of the draw landed me in Christian's office and I officially became Christian's 1st Client 12 years ago & he became my 1st lawyer. Time has passed and I have not lost my devotion to the Linville Law firm. The field of law can quickly become tangled and messy. Christian's work is based on removing obstacles, not creating them. Christian has the ability to see the entire playing field while keeping pinpont focus on the potential outcome. He gives sound advice and thinks about the nuances of a case. I trust Christian explicitly with the complications & issues that can arise in the construction field.
Have known Christian and his father Larry for over 15 years now. Have only required their services a couple of times. Have taken their seminars in the past to learn more about the Washington State Construction laws. Their knowledge and expertise is by far top of the line. Learn something new each time I need their services. We can never predict the future and what problems may exist, but when the problems do occur it is nice to know I have them in my corner.
In my 25+ years of small business ownership in the construction field there were times when I needed representation. Early on, before finding Mr. Linville, I found that the attorney's I had hired were White Flag wavers. I am grateful beyond words that I found Mr. Linville. He has represented me on a few occasions now, with a very good success rate I might add, 100%, and he has been the vigorous champion I had been missing for years. I would highly recommend Mr. Linville.
"Speak softly, but carry a big stick." by Theodore Roosevelt, makes me think of Christian. This man is a thinker, he is not rash nor abrupt in the courtroom, rather his demeanor is one of calm and control. He makes his clients feel at ease and does so with his competence and knowledge. We have had the pleasure of working with Christian on a very arduous case, but his professionalism and ability to communicate have made the process more bearable. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Nobody wants to have to hire an attorney, but there are circumstances that can't be avoided. We contacted Christian a number of years ago in a construction dispute. Although we had a lousy contract, Christian was able to settle the case in record time. He re-wrote out contract to cover all our bases, and years later, that move really paid off. When we contacted him again about a very involved and difficult case, our bases were covered with our new contract. We did not hold high hopes of reaching a settlement with these difficult customers, but Christian did not give up. He did an excellent job negotiating for us and reached a reasonable settlement. I would hire Christian again and refer him to our associates.
Christian’s been great to work with and has a tremendous understanding of Real Estate Law in Washington State. He was always available when I needed him and gives great advice. He has helped me and my clients for over a decade now and I would strongly recommend Christian to anyone needing representation in Real Estate Law.
I got into a legal dispute with a customer. I though I could handle it myself. It got to the point that I needed to find a lawyer. I found Christian on AVVO. It turned out that I had more problems than I thought. I met with Christian. He is a very good lawyer. Very practical. He laid it all out for me. He gave me good advice even though I did not like to hear it. We worked together for a short bit of time and Christian was able to work out a solution with the other side. Looking back, I appreciate Christians’ candor and legal assessments. Christian wrote me a new construction contract and put me on the right path.
I could say so many positive things about Christian Linville. I first came to Christian as a subcontractor needing help with an issue I had with a general contractor. Christian was always available which is important when you are dealing with the stress of litigation. I liked Christian so much I asked him to help me on a personal matter (outside his normal practice area) he was more than willing to help. Once again, Christian proved he was a superhero! When it comes right down to it I just don’t trust anyone but Christian now. That’s a great thing to be able to say about your lawyer!
