He did great for all of my cases with him
I first hired Chris Brown years ago for a marijuana "upm" ticket that he got dismissed. Two weeks later I got a DWI - they said I was high and I wasn't- and Chris got that dismissed. When I was recently hit by a car I called chris and he got me the money I needed. Like they always say on TV the insurance never wants to give you a fair shake unless you get a good attorney. Chris is better than good, he's excellent.

Great Car Accident Lawyer
I was so nervous the first meeting but Chris was so helpful and didn’t leave any question unanswered. My nephew was injured in car accident and Chris quickly received us the maximum payout and he always returned my calls promptly. When I would call overwhelmed Chris did everything in their power to make sure I was taken care 100%. I would recommend anyone needing a personal injury and car accident lawyer to come to them.

Best lawyer around
Chris was professional and honest when it came to my case. Being charged and potentially being found guilty, Chris fought hard. Chris is very educated about NY Laws and it showed when he was representing me, he was able to dismiss my case. I would recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for a lawyer.

Ticket
I received a speeding ticket while driving through upstate New York and Chris handled my case with professionalism and precise knowledge of the current laws. He was able to get the charge dismissed, with a little training my end. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to a friend. Thanks, Chris and Thanks, Amber

Highly Recommend
He handled a ticket and automobile accident (injuries) for me and it was a very positive outcome. He was highly professional and gave rational advice about not taking a plea agreement. He turned a stressful situation into one that had clearly defined steps to take. Would highly recommend!

Amazing Criminal Trial Lawyer
My daughters case was very detailed and complicated, she was charged with 2 felonies involving assault. Chris Brown was able to prove her innocents, the jurors found her not guilty on both charges. Chris was very upfront and honest with his thoughts on the case, and felt my daughter had a very high chance of getting found not guilty when other attorneys were trying to talk her into ridiculous plea bargains and have 2 felonies. I am very greatful to Chris Brown for proving my daughters innocense.

Trial victory!
I would recommend Chris Brown to anybody who needs help to get justice for their case. The odds were against me with an assault charge I was indicted on and after 9 months of fighting it, Chris helped bring home the victory with a verdict of not guilty at trial because I had no other choice but to take it to trial or else I would do prison time. Everything worked out just as Chris said it would and he fought very hard in my defense during this three day trial he knows his stuff and if nothing else he will make sure he fights to get justice for his clients. During this whole process he gave me reassurance and he was very reliable and thorough and helped me understand the law as well. I appreciate him a lot. Thank you Chris for everything.

Honest, Hardworking, Efficient, Effective
Driving in Upstate NY, I experienced my first accident; and I received 2 traffic tickets that would have raised my insurance, added a colossal 8 points on my license, and cost me $450 for DMV’s driver assessment fee. I immediately called several law firms in the area for help. A few lawyers actually refused me outright because (they said) the county in which I received the tickets is notoriously difficult. Another attorney charged me $1000 upfront because he felt it was foregone conclusion that my case would go to trial. Another charged me $200 over his regular retainer fee solely because my case involved an accident. Chris Brown, however, was different. While requesting a reasonable, affordable fee, he told me that he would try his hardest to get my tickets reduced to something tolerable. Indeed, 1.5 months later, he obtained a plea agreement in which I incurred just 3 points instead of 8 points. That outcome allowed me to avoid DMV’s $450 Driver's Assessment Fee and kept my insurance rates from skyrocketing too much. Mr. Brown was quite amiable during our initial telephone conversation, and we were able to do everything by email. I strongly recommend Chris Brown for anyone in need of an honest, hardworking, efficient attorney.

DWI Defense
Chris was very knowledgeable of the current DWI laws. He treated me as if I was a personal friend, not just someone in need of a lawyer. It speaks to the type of character he brings to the table. I was one of those who thought "it won't ever happen to me". Well it did, and with the advice Chris provided, I am happy to say that this entire situation is a thing of the past. I would recommend giving Chris a call the next time you find yourself in a potential life-changing legal situation.

Great lawyer
Chris was excellent in handling my criminal case. He made sure I understood everything about the District Attorney's plea offer and sat down with me for over an hour to explain how a trial would work. I would recommend him to anyone.
