I will always appreciate Mr. Young and his vast knowledge of the law and professionalism. I can go on and on about how awesome he is but if you really want to experience a fair and winning outcome, then look no further

As professional as they come
Christian was always 1 step ahead of the game. Knew the whole process like the back of his hand. He knew exactly what paperwork needed to be filled out and when to get it into the court/DMV system to make sure my license down-time was minimized. Very knowledgeable and can be aggressive when needed. He assisted me for over a year with monthly court dates and was always prompt and professional. Couldn't ask for a better person to stand next to me and represent me.

Great Attorney
I have used Christian multiple times for two car accidents and well as legal assistance for my business interests. He is knowledgeable and not afraid to be aggressive when needed. He has a lot of experience in the court room as well.

Amazing lawyer, even better person
Mr. Young walked me through my first time ever being arrested and going through the court process. I could not have been luckier to have him. Christstain had everything under control from the moment I stepped in his office, he assured me everything was going to be alright and it was. Anyone one who hires or consults with Christian is making a very wise decision. Thank you again Mr. young

You couldn't ask for a better attorney
Per recommendation I hired attorney Young, for a situation that clearly had the potential to unjustly put me behind bars. Thanks to attorney Young's vast knowledge of the law I was able to confidently prove my innocence. Honestly, I would not have been so fortunate if represented by anyone else. Secondly, in a separate matter where I fell victim to larceny, I called again on his services! In a completely different scheme of litigation and thanks to his vast knowledge of the law, attorney Young was able to change gears at a moments notice and persecute the criminal. From injury to criminal count on attorney Young to get it done.

NO Justice without Competent Representation
Attorney Young agreed to take my case because he realized that it was a travesty of justice for any client not to be represented by competent counsel and appeared in court with only two days notice. After searching for weeks Attorney Young agreed to take my case because he knew with proper defense we would win in court and we did!

Integrity, Diligence, & Affordability
Christian represented me on a criminal case that could have ended badly. He was able to work out a favorable deal that enabled me to keep moving forward in life. Most importantly, Christian was responsive and trustworthy. Also, he was willing to work with me to come up with a fee structure that fit my situation.

Crook
I hired Mr Christian Young, under the pretenses during our consultation he told me this was an easy case for him, the fact that my minor son and I were threatened and nothing was done to protect us. He says one thing that does another it thinks his reputation proceeds him he is not a good guy. He will act like he cares but he does not all he wants from you is your money. Oh wow he stayed in the hospital with my cousin all day when he got hit off of his bike because he knew he was going to get tremendous money it wasn't that he cared.
