About Chris

Learn Chris’s areas of practice.

Before deciding to open my own firm, I worked as an associate for several years at a prestigious firm in New Haven County were I received significant experience in a many different areas of the law.  I now use that experience as a general practitioner representing individuals and small businesses in a variety of matters.  I find that my multi-disciplinary training allows me to provide concise and comprehensive legal advice to my clients so they don't need to try and find a different lawyer for every issue they have and don't have to pay large firm fees just so they can get advice on different matters under one roof.  Having said that, when a client needs advice beyond my areas of practice I can usually rely on my network within the Connecticut Bar to find the right person for my clients.

I interviewed with several attorneys, this attorney was by far my BEST choice! He is HONEST, and we all know that it's a very rare find in the Legal business. He's knowledgeable, punctual and definitely on point. If you are seriously looking for someone that will represent you wholeheartedly, on the up and up, and who's Passion is Law. Then choose this young man, he's definitely the Best Choice !!!
