It was such a pleasure working with attorney Christopher Heberg. He was genuine, on top of everything, easy to get in touch with, and able to work with my busy schedule.

I was incredibly impressed by how well he was able to help me navigate dealing with a sensitive situation. I highly recommend attorney Heberg if you want the job done in a masterful and winning way.

Custody trial
Chris represented my son in a matter that ended up going to trial regarding custody of his 3 little girls. Chris knew exactly what he wanted to do, he showed a great deal of respect and seemed to care very much for the outcome being in our favor. His examination and cross examination was spot on. He really showed he was prepared and engaged in the process and got the result that we were hoping for. Very, very happy with the work he did and I would highly recommend him.

Best Lawyer!
Chris was a rockstar in my case! I had a divorce that went on for nearly two years that ended in a three-day in-person trial. His representation of me felt like he took my case personally, which left me feeling incredibly confident throughout my trial. Chris was very prepared for my case and was able to achieve the outcome we were hoping for. Before trial Chris was able to walk me through the parts that I had questions on. Chris prepared me for trial and I was able to walk in feeling confident in him and my case. I could not have asked for a better lawyer for my situation!

Excellent!
Mr. Heberg handled a case for me. The first meeting we had to discuss my case was very helpful. He was professional, knowledgeable, and to the point. When I left, I knew what to expect, what he needed from me, the cost, and a way to reach him, if I needed him. What he didn’t tell me was how absolutely wonderful his paralegal, Meredith Lindenberg, is. Every time I spoke to Meredith, either by phone/email/text, or in person, she was professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. She not only helped by doing her job but always went above and beyond to make sure I was calm and as relaxed as possible. She continuously assured me that they had everything handed, and it would be okay. Mr. Heberg and Ms Lindenberg make an amazing team, and I will absolutely return to them, if I am ever in need of an attorney. I can not recommend them enough!

Christopher was great. Very professional. Easy to work with and made the whole process a little less stressful. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do I know who to call.

Very Driven, and Respectful
You can tell that Chris Heberg is passionate about not only his career, but his clients and maintaining standards of our legal system. Chris is an outstanding lawyer and cares greatly about his clients. I came to him in dire circumstances, and Chris was nothing but professional. He continued to remain focused on the goals at hand and his drive to help was exceedingly supportive. Chris’s legal expertise was extensive, and he makes sure to walk you through the process in a very firm and guiding way. I have appreciated all of his advice during my entire legal journey.

Absolute Rockstar
Chris Heberg is an absolute rockstar. He helped me successfully navigate a high-conflict divorce including custody. He is not intimidated by anyone, he’s a straight shooter and tells you what you need to hear even if it’s difficult. Access to Chris was readily available, he took the time for many after hour phone calls when necessary to put ease to the situation. I never once felt like I was just another case to him. He took time to understand my situation, listened to all of my fears and kept me focused on the big picture using the right mindset and strategy. It was very hard not to be intimidated by the day to day pressures and bullying that were coming from my ex, but with Chris and Meredith in my corner I felt like I was not alone and had the backing of a power house team that kept me strong. On top of being very professional, Chris has a great sense of humor which helps lighten the mood and put you at ease when you’re going through something like this. He is very respected by his colleagues and the court, and his action of law far surpasses anyone he is up against. I can’t thank Chris and Meredith enough for getting me through this difficult time in my life. I’m officially divorced and I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.

Christopher Heberg Review
Christopher Heberg, was an absolute god send to myself and family when I needed guidance, patience, and a course of action during an unfortunate divorce and custody case. Life is not always sunshine and rainbows and when we are forced to make difficult decisions it helps having a top tier law expert and professional lifting you up when you need love and support. Mr. Heberg is a straight shooter and a brilliant lawyer that stands up for his clients with a tenacious charisma and knowledge of law raining superb over his adversaries. I highly recommend his firm. -Arthur Evans

Beyond Excellent Lawyer
I had a consult with Chris and explained to him my case about my son and what was involved. After speaking with Chris I knew he was the lawyer that I needed for us. Chris explained everything to me and what was involved and how he was going to precede with the case. Chris is very confident, bold and a fighter. He knew exactly what and where to go to get the information that was needed. Once we had our court dates he was ready to go. I was very relieved that I had Chris by my side during these court sessions. He is professional but strong and holds his points and facts. Chris, will step up to the plate and knock it out of the park for you. A lawyer that you can trust. Chris will do whatever he needs to do for your case. Chris, won my case for me my child support/daycare expenses and some other issues along with this. Whether you are going through a divorce,child support, daycare expenses Chris has your back. Do not hesitate to Hire Christopher Heberg as your lawyer. He is amazing!! I am very happy and you will be too!

Exceptional Attorney
I cannot overstate the confidence this Lawyer possesses. I had a case using a couple Attorneys where it just seemed like this is being dragged out for the them to profit. Not Chris! He came right in, and conquered the case immediately. He had the respect of the courts, judges, and other Atternony's that changed my case completely around. Chris not only understands the legal system tremendously, but, his experience and understanding of the overall system in Rhode Island made his competition submit. Chris saved me so much time and money on this case where I thought it would never end. I would challenge anyone who says there is better Lawyer out there than Chris.

He does not play around
Chris really fights the fight. I hired Chris 5 years ago for a divorce and he really took the time to understand what I wanted and came through. He did not let the other attorney get away with his antics and ensured I got what was fair. Fast forward to 2023 when we had to be back in court. Chris was right back at it. He was quick in reviewing the findings and perusing what was required by the other party. The judges have a respect for him because of his knowledge and understanding of the law and what was best for our son. Things wrapped up quickly with a huge win. I hope not to need his services again but know he is the go-to in fighting for what is right and not playing around.

Knowledgeable and empathetic
I came to Chris at a very frustrating point in my divorce. He was able to look at the steps I’d taken and set me on a path that was going to get the ball moving and my divorce settled. Not only did he get me there (Cheers!) but he was able to do so in a way that was considerate of my Ex, keeping the peace while still doing what was necessary to get us to the end game. He was a pleasure to work with and if I ever need another attorney he’s the one Id recommend in a heartbeat!

Divorce representation
Chris and his team has been exceptional in handling my divorce. It was a long process that required a personal touch in which Chris delivered in the most professional manner. Never at any time did I feel like I was not being represented properly. He was always there to answer any questions ether by phone or email, always putting my best interests first. I must admit that did my homework in researching the best lawyer that I could get in handling my situation, since my ex wife lives 3 states away. Chris's reputation and expertise always came on top. If you want to be put first, I strongly recommend Chris and his team.

Thank you Chris!!
My experience with Chris was second to none. Even though my ex husband tried his best to complicate an already difficult situation, attorney Heberg made everything go as smoothly as possible. If it wasn't for the way Chris navigated and explained each step in the process, I would likely still be in court. He ensured the best possible outcome for my family, focusing on keeping my daughter's needs at the forefront while remaining fair and honest. It's a bonus that he's easy to talk to! I felt confident and well informed every step of the way. Thank you Chris!!
