  • Christopher Lee Thayer

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Chris was opposing counsel on a significant medical negligence case I recently handled. He was very professional, exceptionally knowlegeable and overall just did outstanding work on behalf of his client. On top of that, he was pleasant to work with and very reasonable, while maintaining his role as an advocate.
