Very Professional
Mr. Lefebvre was kind, helpful and extremely professional. Nothing was ever dragged out ... he was quick and to the point every step of the way. I highly recomend him as an Attourney who cares yet is professional.

Bankruptcy
We had filed for bankruptcy with another attorney and after our hearing one of our creditors filed a suit against us. Our attorney couldn't handle the claim any longer and referred us to Christopher. He was very prompt and assertive. Any time I contacted he responded right away and he always reassured us that he had the matter under control. It was a pleasure working with him and we couldn't have made it through the bankruptcy without him.

Patient and Understanding
Mr. Lefebvre was patient and understanding. I came to him seeking assistance in my marital separation in November of 2023, and the entire matter was resolved by March of 2024. Mr. Lefebvre was knowledgeable and to the point which allowed for each step of the matter to flow smoothly. My particular case was not overly complex I would say, however delicate assets were involved nonetheless. Mr. Lefebvre was responsive in our multiple email chains and provided value added dialog throughout the case. I would highly recommend Mr. Lefebvre in a case of marriage separation.

Easiest divorce ever
I called Christopher Lefebvre on a Monday morning inquiring about a divorce. I was given a more than fair attorney fee. I agreed to proceed with the process. He and his staff couldn’t have made things any easier or faster. The whole communication of what to do and how were given in perfect detail. I was amazed in how fast it was completed. 10 days and it was all said and done. Now I can move on with my life!! Thank you sooooo much!!! Highly recommend!!! 10/10.

Unique child support case
Attorney Lefebvre was my lawyer in a unique child support case involving my disabled adult daughter. In my opinion he went above and beyond in researching and preparing for this case, I do not believe I could of had a better outcome thanks to his hard work.

fixed a major issue
Christopher was able to go back and fix a big headache / issue from a bankruptcy filed over 10 years ago! Our previous attorney failed to take care of some major issues. Christopher cleaned up this mess quickly and efficiently! We are so very grateful and very pleased with his service.

Doesn't mess around! Great lawyer
I really liked working with Chris - He helped out a family member and I was highly involved. I have worked with my own lawyers in the past and I wish I had worked with Chris in my family court / custody case. He is fair to the client, but doesn't stop until he gets what he wants with the opposing party! Good guy who doesn't mess around and doesn't take crap from anybody. He is who I would want on my side should I ever have to go to court again! He did a great job...

Should have switched sooner
I had hired an an attorney prior to be referred to Attorney Lefebvre. I initially did not know what to expect so I dismissed my concerns and remained with previous attorney for over 8 months. I highly regret that. I should have switched so much sooner! Chris did in weeks what previous attorney could not do in almost a year. He jumped right in and took me on with confidence and compassion. I felt the knowledge, professionalism, and advocacy in his representation. I can finally take a deep breath and know I did not compromise beyond my comfort level because I had a skilled attorney on my side. It made all the difference. I hirely recommend Attorney Lefebvre.

Complicated Divorce
Although complicated and time consuming Chris was able to negotiate effectively resulting in a fair and equal settlement. Throughout the excruciating process, through no fault of his own, he took the time to explain everything and provide valuable advice. I would highly recommend Chris...and if I need legal advise again he will be my person.

Bankruptcy Guidance
I entered into Chapter 13 bankruptcy with another lawyer, but as I got into negotiating with my Trustee, I found out much more about how the Trustee would be reviewing my income and finances during the bankruptcy that my Lawyer did not communicate to me. I contacted Chris and got an accurate picture of what was going to be happening and the process. Not only did Chris review my case, but he answered multiple follow up questions and gave me great advice. Going forward I will always contact Chris first for all my legal needs and direction. He is a true consumer and client advocate.

Out of State Hero!!!!!
I cold called on a Friday looking for information to close a large debt I owed in Rhode Island. I have been in Florida for eight years. Mr. Lefebvre quickly figured out my issues, provided me with 3 avenues to pursue, and then provided the path of least resistance. He was able to negotiate a fair amount to close the debt and had the entire matter handled by Tuesday. Mr. Lefebvre is professional, he cares about your matter, and handles it with truth and honesty.

Child Custody Case
I began what I thought should have been a simple custody case, that for many reasons turned out to become a parents worst nightmare. I have never experienced anything like this before so it was all new to me. I initially retained another Attorney and after doing so I realized that my main concerns were not being heard or taken seriously. That Attorney was playing on my fears and vulnerabilities at my expense of course. I was soon enough experiencing what I considered to be a full blown trail between two Attorneys via email which I did not feel comfortable with but again I am not familiar with this process. So finally no longer feeling safe and after spending unnecessary amounts of money a friend of mine referred me to Chris. I contacted Chris and he immediately listened to everything I was saying. He reviewed my entire case while we were on the phone and gave me plenty of his time at no cost. I felt very safe and content after speaking to him so I immediately went to retain him. Chris has been at this for a long time. He is empathetic, practical, methodical and most importantly NO NONSENSE, just to name a few. He does not play games nor waste time. He is also a good read of character. Once I retained Chris all the games stopped and my case was resolved quickly and in the best interest of my child and I. It brought me much peace of mind during a trying time. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Chris as a professional and a person. He also is not one to Nickle and Dime. I will definitely miss our emails and phone calls but I am glad this experience is over. I think its clear that I would highly recommend Chris to anyone. Thanks again for all that you have done for my family and I. I will never forget it. Blessings to you always.

Auto financing scam
I was just recently in the process of purchasing a truck at a used car dealership and found out that the dealership was attempting to scam me with yo-yo financing. I called Chris and he was great. Very knowledgeable and really went above and beyond. My wife and I are extremely grateful for his help and would recommend.
