Quick-witted, and with a dry sense of humor that stuck
Chris helped me and my wife with our bankruptcy, and the process was near seamless. Quick-witted, and with a dry sense of humor that stuck, Chris quickly and expertly handled our case, updating us along the way so we could rest assured everything was in order. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Chris for your legal needs!

Beyond thankful for his service
Chris has always been there for me when I had questions. He assisted me a decade ago and again just recently. He returns emails and phone calls and addresses your questions & concerns. I am beyond thankful for his wonderful service.

Incredible attorney and man!
Chris helped my wife and I through some of the most difficult times we ever had. He always returned our calls, met with us on short notice and was a tireless advocate on our behalf. He also gives much back to our community (and is an incredible actor at our community theater). I could not recommend anyone higher.

Amazing Lawyer thank Listens to you!!
I went to see Mr. L'Hommedieu for bankruptcy purposes , through out the whole process he not only made me feel at ease and talk me through the whole process he took the time to make sure this was the answer for me. He truly does care for his clients. I am a very shy person so to have a lawyer that understood and didn't judge me helped with the process. I would and do recommend Chris to anyone who is in need of a lawyer! I trust him , it's hard to find people you trust now a days.

More Than Just A Lawyer
Chris L'Hommedieu, Is More than just a great Lawyer, He's an Amazing person as well, Chris dedicated countless hours in my case, Kept me informed every step of the way, even while he was on vacation in Israel. I cant say enough good things about this man he believed in me and in the end he helped me get my children and my family back. This man went above and beyond what any lawyer would do for a client. With Chris I never felt like I was just another one of his many cases. Id highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a lawyer that not only cares but also has compassion for his clients. Thank you again Chris for everything you have done for my family and I, Ill forever be grateful for all that you have done for me. Michael M

Highly recommended!!
Chris helped change my life. I was dealing with a very difficult person and with Chris's advice and hard work I was able to turn the entire situation around and have finally come out on top. I couldn't thank him enough for everything he has done. He is very honest and hard working and I would recommend him to anyone that ever needed help.

Best Attorney
Chris is the most honest and fairest attorney I know. He has helped and guided us in so many ways and has worked extremely hard on any case we have had. We have followed his advice and guidance and have come out on top because of it. We would never be where we are today of it wasn't for Chris.

I was always afraid of lawyers because when my daughter was 2 she was molested by her Dad and the attorney for her Dad was down right a few years later I had a situation where I needed to file bankruptcy.I searched and searched and found Chris. He was so sweet and understanding, not to mention knowledgeable. he made the process as easy as it could be by his knowledge. I was able to breath without being afraid to go to a hearing and know he was taking care of me and not just another case. I have consulted him many times about different personal situations and I tell you the man cares! He is highly recommended in my book, I wouldn't go to anyone else...Chris will be honest in a way it doesn't hurt or make you upset, because he knows what he is doing!!! Highly recommend this lawyer!

Legal advice
Attorney L'Hommedieu answered questions I had concerning bankruptcy and didn't pressure me to file. I thought about it for another year before I went back to see him again to actually file. It's a hard decision for anyone to make and he totally understands. If you have a lot of medical debt or other debt and feel overwhelmed, he can walk you through the process and keep you informed along the way. I find he is an excellent attorney and I would highly recommend him. If I need an attorney for any other reason in the future, I will certainly call him first.

Chris helped us with our bankruptcy and everything went well. When they started foreclosure proceedings we hit a few snags and Chris coached us along the way. He was quick to answer any of our questions. We would highly recommend Chris for any legal concerns.

Debt Settlement/ HE PUT MY FEARS TO REST
Mr L'Hommedieu was very gracious and answered all of my questions , and told me what to do if contacted by these people. He really put my fears to rest and I am very thankful for that. he even told me that I should get my money from the other company more quickly and I will give it a bit of time and do what he suggests. I am very thankful for this service and Thankful he responded .

Amazingly personable and yet still very professional
While my case was really straight-forward, Mr. L'Hommedieu went above and beyond. I'm sure with the experience that he has, he could have handled my issue in his sleep. However, it wasn't his expediency that impressed me so much as it was the other skills he exhibited. He took a very depressing situation and had the utmost empathy for me. He also had a sense of humor that was very reassuring, something i certainly did not expect from a lawyer. Perhaps most importantly, though, he has the patience of a saint. i asked a LOT of questions. Not once did he make me feel as though i was an inconvenience or wasting his time, even though i'm sure i did on more than one occasion. Before deciding to hire him i admit that i "shopped around", trying to find representation for my case. Many were ok: they were helpful in answering my questions, but not very personable or empathetic. Some were down-right rude to me and made me feel worse about an already terrible situation. Mr. L'Hommedieu stood out head and shoulders above the rest. He truly made a bad experience as painless as it possibly could have been. Look, do i ever want to be in that same situation again? Absolutely not! But if i were to find myself there again, Mr. L'Hommedieu would be my first choice, bar none. I would recommend him very, very highly to anyone in need of legal representation without a moments hesitation.
