5.0 stars 13 totalReview Christopher Black
Chris did a great job for me. I'm really pleased with all of his efforts and the results he helped me obtain.
Previous to hiring Chris, I was represented by a lawyer from the Federal Public Defenders Office. My lawyer had decided I was guilty, my case was not defendable and I should just accept the prosecutor's plea agreement as written. I would have been entering a plea within months of arrest and I am certain the results would have just followed the federal sentencing guidelines resulting in two to three years of prison time. This would have given me little time to settle my personal matters prior to going to prison.
Immediately upon talking with Chris I was relieved in the change in attitude he brought to my case. Chris was always available to me and responded to my calls and emails quickly. Chris worked directly with me to obtain the necessary background information and other facts of the case. Although, I eventually pled guilty to one of the charges, Chris helped in the characterization of my actions and presented all of my information in the most favorable light. I'm sure that this approach severely reduced my eventual sentence. I received a sentence of months instead of years as a result of these efforts.
Additionally, the year of continuances allowed me to get all of my personal matters attended to prior to reporting to prison. I'm now in a much better personal state because of these effort.
I recommend anyone facing a criminal prosecution to immediately contact Chris for a consultation. I am sure he can be a valuable asset to you and your case.

...I was about to give up in my criminal case, the legal defender told me to plea guilty and I will be 6 months in prison and there was no solution for my case, I was facing up to 5 years in prison and 250,000 Dls fine, thank God my wife hire Mr. Black ; got released from jail two weeks after. 4 months after hiring Mr. Black I am at home, my case is finish and done with it. I have time served, I paid $100.00 fine and got 2 points on my record, I highly recommend Mr. Black, he is a professional, experienced and one of the best.

Christopher really helped me out during a tough time. I found myself in an unenviable position and Christopher was professional throughout the process. He kept me informed of what was going on and was always thorough.
I appreciated his frankness and candor while giving me peace of mind. Basically if Chris said it was going to be ok, i knew it would be and vice versa. Hopefully I'll never need to use him again but would highly recommend. Felt lucky that he was my lawyer.

I had a difficult case with harmful false accusations, I was told by other professionals it was impossible to win. I wanted someone to believe in me, and that is exactly what Mr. Black and his team did. There are no words to describe his dedication to my case. Thanks to his knowledge, professionalism, and values I won “my impossible to win” case. He is an excellent lawyer but most of all a wonderful person.

Chris stepped into a hard case for me and my extended family. We didn't know what to do and he helped us so much. I will forever be grateful for his expertise and advise.

Mr Black defended me in a DV 4th degree case recently.
I talked to a couple of attorneys and tried to find the best one in Seattle. Only Mr Black had kind concern and care about what happened. The other attorneys are like: oh this is just another DV case, you finish some courses first.
This was my first time got involved in this, and I was very panic. He is very professional, with great insights and the best strategies on a case. He cares about people, gave me great advices and worked on the case. He always reply my questions very fast, either on phone or email.
Only 2 weeks after I hired Mr Black, my case got dismissed.
I strongly recommend him as the best defense lawyer.

Having found myself in a less than enviable position I needed a criminal attorney. Luckily for me, Chris was referred to me by one of his associates. Chris was very professional and thorough making sure that my rights were protected. His counsel was sound and he put me at ease as best he could during a very traumatic time for me.
I feel lucky that I had Chris but hopefully will never need his services again.

Everything I could ask for in a legal professional. To the point, and very frank.
I was represented by Mr Black and found him to be the consummate professional, that he appears to be. His knowledge of the law and its reprocussions put my mind at ease. He made the entire ordeal manageable and I was satisfied with the outcome of my case.

Always spent the time I needed to understand the circumstances. He did everything possible to make sure I benefited through our experience. For me, I never was charged. He was the best thing that ever happened to me, through one of the toughest times in my life.

After dealing with another lawyer's BS I was so glad to have Chris Black on my side. He deals with criminal cases daily and knows the players, the process, the ins and outs and how the prosecutors choose their strategies. Thank GOD my friend and attorney Jerry B. recommended Chris to me. Chris made me feel at ease. I was never charged, I believe thanks to Chris' communication with the detective. Case not done, but ive got a solid advocate if it comes back. Trust Chris.
