Outstanding Attorney for High Conflict Custody
I cannot recommend attorney Lyden enough for his exceptional services in handling my difficult child custody case. From the beginning, he has shown unwavering support and dedication, going above and beyond to ensure that my needs and concerns were met. One of the most impressive aspects of working with attorney Lyden was his availability. He was always accessible, ready to answer any questions or address any concerns I had, regardless of the time or day. This level of commitment and responsiveness truly set him apart. Attorney Lyden's professionalism and extensive knowledge in family law were evident throughout the entire process. He consistently provided accurate information and guidance, ensuring that I understood all aspects of the case. His reputation within the justice system is well-deserved, as he demonstrated deep understanding of the needs pertaining to my child and the case. Moreover, attorney Lyden truly understood the emotional toll that a high-conflict custody battle can take. He approached my case with empathy and compassion, making me feel supported and understood. His ability to alleviate my stress and provide reassurance was invaluable. Not only was attorney Lyden exceptional, but his staff was also outstanding. The entire team was kind, thoughtful, and always there to assist with any issues that arose. They consistently demonstrated professionalism and efficiency, creating a supportive environment during an undoubtedly challenging time. If you are seeking an attorney with extensive experience, comprehensive knowledge, and a genuine commitment to your case, look no further than attorney Lyden. His professionalism, dedication, and exceptional communication skills make him the go-to attorney for all custody concerns. I am forever grateful for his invaluable guidance and assistance. -Forever a grateful client-

comprehensive representation
"Chris", as he prefers to be called, focuses on family law and criminal law; providing excellent defense in both. Chris truly cares for his clients and tries his best to accommodate them. Personally, i struggled finding a defense in town that felt interested in my case, but with enough searching I finally settled on Chris, and he did not disappoint. I Can now happily say that I can raise my kid in a proper home environment. Thank you Chris and thank you to your staff.

Criminal Defense
Attorney Lyden represented my daughter on a legal matter where she was wrongfully charged for defending herself. He was able to get the charge dismissed. I highly recommend him if you need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.

Perfect strategy and best possible result
Chris' help was invaluable to me. Chris had the perfect temperament to handle my highly emotional case. He displayed a unique ability to be thoughtful and intuitive while showing several approaches to my circumstance from various perspectives demonstrating to me why his plan and course of action was best for my scenario. Chris' command of the law and his measured, meticulously organized strategy resulted in the absolute best possible outcome for me and it scares me to think what might have happened without his guidance. I am extremely grateful I found him.

Divorce/Custody
Attorney Lyden was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process of my divorce and custody case. He was able to explain things to me in a way that I understood. If he was unable to take my call, he returned it right away. I felt like he was on my side and I could trust him. I would highly recommend this attorney.

Not a serious lawyer
Lawyer left out very important information during the hearing, only asked a few basic questions for key witnesses. We could’ve said all the things he said which wasn’t much or key info. All that money for a lawyer who isn’t on top of things. Emails were sent months ago that he didn’t read until last minute. Did not rehearse anything.

PFA defense
Chris started the divorce process and my wife decided to file a PFA after finding out about the divorce. Chris was hired to defend the PFA. Chris left out a lot of crucial information. Evidence like my wife calling me repeatedly after getting me removed from my house. She showed up at my work and I had to call law enforcement to have her leave me alone. Chris left important details like this out and didn't even bring them up. My wife brought her boyfriend and her mother to run my name down. My wife also added sexual assault allegations at the trial. The judge enacted a two year PFA, he stated that he was doing this because he had no idea what was going on. Chris then took even more money to try to get this reheard. I fired him and my new attorney looked over the case. She was so disgusted with Chris's performance. In her words " Chris took a wiffle ball bat to a major league ball game".
