Great CT Collections Attorney
Attorney Hite represented me on a handful of collection matters. He and his team worked very timely and thoroughly to collect money back for every one of my files. For a Connecticut debt collection lawyer, I would not recommend anyone else.

Top notch!!
Chris helped me file for bankruptcy. What initially looked to be a simple filing turned into a very complex situation. Chris guided me every step of the way and went above and beyond to resolve all of the issues. He is a true professional who really cares about his clients and I would highly recommend him.

Experienced, Reliable, and Reasonable
Yesterday I had to consult attorney Hite regarding a matter that created much angst. Within a minute I was connected directly to his business phone. In the seconds that followed attorney Hite alleviated my concerns. Many thanks to you for your time and sound legal advice. Frank Fehling

Extremely Helpful and Professonal
I was referred to Chis and his partner Max Rosenberg by a top attorney I had used before. This was to get advice regarding complicated financial issues I'm working through -- including my mortgage. Chris was a huge help and clearly knows this area very well. He was incredibly helpful and guided me through what I needed very clearly. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a top attorney.

Honest Attorney
Many people assume a lawyer is out to gouge them with fees for every little thing or for them taking long lunches. Christopher Hite is not such an attorney. Before taking on my case he gave me realistic odds, told me what could be done and what he was going to do to help me. By the time he had resolved my case, I know he had done for me what many other attorneys probably could not have. I consulted him on a different case, again he was honest with me and advised me without making me spend unneccessary funds. I would recommend Attorney Hite to anyone seeking help with legal issues, especially those regarding credit situations and school loans.

Contracts
I met with Christopher to seek advice on how to collect from a contractor after winning a small claims judgment against him for non-performance under our contract. Christopher was attentive and honest and steered me in the right direction. Should I need the advice of an attorney in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to call Christopher again.

A hardworking attorney with a great personality
Attorney Hite is the best lawyer I have had, by far. I was involved in a worker's compensation case and he did an excellent job at aggressivley representing me and satsifying my needs. He completed the necessary paperwork well before the deadline and was always punctual and on time for everything. He has a great personality and cares about his client's needs. When it comes to worker's comp claims, definitely check him out.

A savior in time of need
As a woman who had been economically dependent on her husband and going through divorce with limited financial resources, I was reaching out to Chris frequently for legal advice pertaining to my divorce. My husband kept throwing surprises my way, and my go-to resource would always be Chris. Whether it was shooting him a quick email or giving him a call, Chris would always be very responsive and helped put my mind at ease by arming me with the legal knowledge I needed to move forward. He is extremely helpful, patient, and practical, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for sound legal advice.

An attorney who really knows how to make you feel at ease.
An attorney with knowledge. An attorney who will make you feel at ease no matter what tough times you are going through. He will fight for your rights. Honest and straight forward. A person who really cares about your situation. I can not thank him enough for walking me through a day that I thought I would not be able to go through. He was there for me and I can not thank him enough.

Eager Attorney with a Good Heart
Attorney Hite is currently collecting on a debt for me and my business. I am winding down my company and he is assisting in making this process easy and well...somewhat enjoyable. He has a good heart and nature about him. He is very eager and hungry and those are qualities I want in my attorney. The case was completed, and the opposition has recently filed a Motion to Reopen, and Hite immediately filed an Objection and Memorandum to help wrap this matter up. I am very pleased with the speed and clarity of his responses. I would recommend him and his firm to anyone.

Loved working with Christopher Hite
I recently purchased a car after graduating from college and it turned out to be a terrible decision. I trusted the salesmen at the dealership to sell me the car with honest facts. Not too long after I purchased the car I had to take it to the shop for repairs. The mechanic explained to me that the car I purchased did not match the description of what I was sold! I called Christopher Hite immediately. I was able to meet with him that week and within a few months I took the dealership to court. My case ended successfully and I would recommend Christopher Hite to anyone who has a consumer law dispute. His knowledge and passion for his job are unmatched by any lawyer my family has used in the past.

Quirky but effective attorney. I would use him again.
Attorney Hite kept me from making several big mistakes while representing me. He reminded me that principles cost money and that a good outcome is often based in a cost/ benefit analysis. Attorney Hite is young but seasoned and eager. He was particularly excellent in combating the low life, substance abusing attorney who we sued. He was a marvelous advocate and well worth the cost.

Housing Matter
Hired to represent me in housing court to evict an extreme problem tenant. Although the tenant fought aggressively, Attorney Hite quickly was able to remove my tenant from the premises without any trouble.
