Attorney Francis successfully represented me in a credit card debt case and I would highly recommend him to handle any legal matter. He was professional, responsive, and courteous.

Has been extremely understanding with payment, and has moved my hearings without me having to even bother him to ask. Overall has had me feel very safe and secure as any lawyer should. Extremely down to Earth and non judgmental

I saw Christian W. Francis's name on the computer after I answered an ad stating I could get help for pain and suffering if I was in an auto accident. He contacted me and explained what would be involved. I thought I had nothing to lose so I gave him a try.

I spoke with Mr. Francis this afternoon and he is very easy to speak to and also very understanding in the situation that I was in today. Upon further conversations I am going to retain him as my legal lawyer in the future. Very easy to speak to.

thought was working on my medical case for almost two years, never made any progress and lost all my medical documents in the mail after I had requested them back. When he was assigned my DUI, it was my first, never met with me, was late to the court date, didn’t walk me through anything or give me clear answers. Do not recommend unless you feel like babysitting to make sure everything gets done.
