Exceptional Legal Support! A Journey with Chris..
From the moment I connected with Chris, his passion and dedication to his work were evident. He went above and beyond to understand the nuances of my case, providing me with expert guidance and clarity in every step of the process. What truly sets Chris apart is his exceptional communication. He made sure I was ALWAYS in the loop, patiently explaining legal jargon and offering insights that helped me make informed decisions. It felt like having a knowledgeable friend by my side throughout the journey. Chris's commitment to achieving the best outcome for me was truly heartwarming. His professionalism, combined with a personal touch, created an environment of trust and confidence. I can't thank Chris enough for his hard work, dedication, and genuine care. He's not just an attorney; he's a partner who invested time and effort to ensure my success. Without a doubt, I wholeheartedly recommend Chris to anyone in need of top-notch legal representation. His expertise, warmth, and unwavering support have made a significant impact on my experience. Thank you, Chris, for being the best advocate I could have asked for!!

Miracle Worker
Chris is a miracle worker! I contacted him over a year and half ago when I was in a real legal bind. I never thought in a million years we would get the results that we did, but somehow I was able to come out of my situation better than anyone would have ever expected. If you are looking for someone who will work hard for you, treat you with respect, and be an absolute professional, then Chris is your guy. I can't ever express how grateful I am for the work that he did, and the results we got. Thanks for everything Chris!

Great Attorney, Even better person
Mr Porreca was very professional and experienced with all the steps of the process. Made everything very easy and stress-free, with his knowledge of the courts and everything involved within it. Was very respectful throughout the process, while being a very personable individual who made it feel like you had someone who had your back.

I recently contacted Chris when I was in crisis and really needed sound legal advice. From our very first conversation, I knew I was in the right hands. Chris gave me great advice, was clear and concise, told me everything up front. I will definitely be using his services again, and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Excellent Attorney - Highly Recommend
Christopher and his paralegal, Stephanie, have been a pleasure to work with from day one. Chris took the time to explain the entire process to me and was always a quick phone call away to answer any questions to put my mind at ease. I am happy to say I got the results I wanted and the best possible outcome, and will use his services for any future legal needs. Highly recommended!

Amazing and HIGHLY Recommend
I am pleased to write this review for Attorney Chris Porreca. I was referred to Chris by a friend for some legal advice on a situation. He immediately returned my call, discussed all the opportunities with me, even before I hired him. What impressed me was that he was willing to take the time to speak with me even though I had not yet retained his services. After speaking with Chris, I decided to hire him because he seemed extremely knowledgeable about the law, professional, personable, and I felt very comfortable. He was available for me anytime I needed to speak to him, explained everything to me in detail, and was always completely honest with any outcome that might occur. He worked with the prosecutor and was able to downgrade my charges. I feel that Chris worked extremely hard and put his heart into helping me. And to top it off, the outcome on my case was very favorable. Thank you and your amazing staff, which kept me informed with every detail along the way. Chris would be the first person I would call and the first person I would recommend it to anybody if ever in need of legal services.

Dwi 3rd offense
I hired Chris Porreca for my son with a DWI arrest (3rd offense). Chris is understanding, responsive, knows the laws and goes above & beyond for his clients! I had so many questions, he was always responsive & really cares. He was able to downgrade charges to reckless driving, which is amazing! I highly recommend him for any type of legal advice you need. I am so grateful to him & his staff for all they have done.

Highly recommended!
If you are looking for honest, favorable legal representation in a DWI or other criminal matter I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND hiring Mr. Porreca to handle your legal matters. I was dealing with (what could have been) a major traffic offense. I was a bit hesitant at first, as I initially contacted the firm via their text line and was reluctant to give any personal information, but Stephanie, Mr. Porreca‘s paralegal instantly made me feel very comfortable and listened to as we initiated the conversation over a phone call. Any correspondences I’ve had with Stephanie, she’s always been super helpful, kind, and I’ve always felt listened to. My initial impression of Mr. Porreca instantly put my mind at ease as he has many, many years of experience with DWI and criminal defense. After researching the website and bio I felt Mr. Porreca was genuine and capable of bringing me the best possible outcome for my situation. Nothing was sugarcoated and I was given best case and worst-case scenario of my situation. Like I said without going into detail, my situation was sort of a unique one so after spending hours upon hours of researching attorneys and weeks on the phone with them, I decided to hire Mr. Porreca to handle my legal issues. I felt his services were extremely affordable, as other attorneys wanted to charge me much more money without even considering my circumstances. As many of the other reviews state, he was almost always available when I called or had questions, and if I had to leave a message either he or Stephanie would promptly get back to me, so it was comforting knowing they were there to help. Long story short, Mr. Porreca got me probably one of the best deals anyone could get me. He got all but one of my charges dismissed, was able to allow me to keep my license, kept me out of jail, and with minimum fines. Like I said my situation could’ve been SO MUCH WORSE but I believe Mr. Porreca fought hard for me because he genuinely cares about his clients and has a passion for what he does. I hired him in May for my incident that happened in March and all of this was resolved by July. I am extremely satisfied with Mr. Porreca’s services and I can’t thank him and his staff enough.

Chis is very compassionate, highly recommended!!
I consulted and hired Chris when I was wrongly accused of something very serious. Chris provided excellent legal advise and is very responsive and a call away, he always believed in my innocence and whenever I was nervous talking to him calmed me down. My family will always be indebted to Chis for saving our reputation and getting our lives back. We are fortunate that we met Chris and strongly recommend him.

Excellent and Patient Attorney
I was referred to Chris from a very good friend of mine during a time of much needed advice and assistance. He was able to meet with me within a few days to discuss my options and the situation at hand. He never sugarcoated anything, which is exactly what I needed, since I was never in this situation before. He explained everything that was going to happen thoroughly and in depth so I knew what to expect. He was extremely persistent with the prosecutor assigned to my case to get me the best possible outcome. I cannot thank him enough for answering all of my questions, my emails, and of course my calls anytime I needed to speak with him! I would highly recommend him to anyone!!

Excellent Attorney
I hired Chris as my attorney for a criminal matter. I had consulted with a couple of other attorneys however after meeting with Chris I know he was the right guy. He answered all of my questions, he explained all the possible outcomes (he did not sugarcoat the worst case scenario he was very upfront about it which was very valuable), and he gave me reassurance that we would get through this case. At one point the prosecutor was really giving my case a hard time and wanting things that just simply weren’t possible for my family. Chris fought with the prosecutor to get me the absolute best possible outcome. If I ever had any questions he was simply a phone call away. If he was not available at that moment I knew very promptly I would be getting a return call. In addition his fees were very reasonable and he was willing to work with my family. I pray that I am never in any similar situation however if I were or any of my family or friends were Chris would be my first call!!!

Hired Chris Porreca for a legal matter - he was excellent. He straightforward, right to the point, gave us all the facts - yet easy to work with & personable at same time. He was able to negotiate a plea with prosecutor that kept my family member out of jail & kept the case from dragging on and clogging up the court system. I highly recommend Chris - I will keep his card in my wallet from now on. Although I hope I won't have a need - but I would not hesitate to call him again if I do need legal counsel for a criminal matter.
