I found Chris while doing an online search. My fiance was facing some pretty serious charges and like most people I called around to several lawyers looking for help. I met with Chris at a Starbucks. He gave me his professional input, with the limited knowledge he had at that time and spoke to my fiance on the phone since he luckily called just at that time. We both agreed this was our guy. Chris was just awesome. My fiance was facing several years and a strike on some pretty serious charges. Plus, the court tried to say he had a prior strike. Chris was able to come in and get the prior removed from the file pretty quickly. So that in itself was a victory we celebrated right away.
As for the charges and all the time my fiance was looking at, Chris thoroughly reviewed all the evidence. He ended up getting all charges dropped and settling for a much lesser charge, allowing my fiance to be released within just a few days. Altogether, he sat in jail for 2 1/2 months on what the court tried to make several years!
Chris was always willing to talk and even contacted extended family who wanted an opportunity to speak with him. I appreciate all of the time he was willing to put in.
Chris is reasonable and really works with people. He is a God send in a very troubling time.

I received a bogus traffic ticket for a red light violation in San Ramon, CA and had prepared my own defense. Unfortunately, the court postponed my trial until after a career-related out-of-state relocation, and making a return trip to California for the trial was not practical. I could have plead guilty and gone on with life, but on principle I was not going to plead guilty to something I did not do. So, I hired Attorney Feasel to represent me.
He met with me in-person the same day on which I initially contacted him. In our meeting, he impressed upon me that he was well-acquainted with Walnut Creek traffic court, the court's procedures, and the personnel at the court. He came across as professional, but also down-to-earth. All this gave me a sense of confidence and trust in retaining him as my counsel.
His fee was, in my opinion, quite reasonable considering the time required to hear me explain the facts of the case in our initial meeting, to reacquaint himself with those facts when the trial finally happened several months later, and then go to traffic court in Walnut Creek to represent me in front of the judge.
While my primary motivation in hiring Attorney Feasel was to avoid the trouble that can come with missing a court date, and on the principle that the Court was not going to take my money without a fight, I was pleasantly surprised that the Court - one with a reputation for "toughness" on traffic cases - ruled in my favor after listening to Attorney Feasel's presentation of the evidence with the citing officer present.
My verdict on Attorney Feasel is that I would recommend him, and would hire him again if I ever had another legal need to aligned with his range of services.

Chris represented me in traffic violation. He handled my case very efficiently and represented me on the specific date in the court. He was able to get the ticket dismissed altogether and now my bail amount will be refunded. I will not have any points or fines imposed on me. My driving record will be clean. During the process he was always very responsive on the mails. I appreciate his help in this matter.

I hired Mr. Feasel for theft case that triggered bench warrant that has been pending for more than 2 years. He was able to communicate the factors surrounding the situation clearly to the judge with a convincing method that resulted in a positive outcome. I recommend Mr. Feasel as a competent lawyer to your criminal case.
