Thorough legal counsel
Chris Ezold has represented our company for 4 years. Chris ensures that all facets of representing our company are clearly articulated with outstanding communication skills. His responsiveness to our needs is stellar and expedient. I rate his quality of service and value of services as five star. Chris has an ability to lay the legal process out so it is easy to understand. I find Chris to have outstanding ethics with the “Do the right thing” attitude. I highly recommend Chris!

Simply superb; a terrific outcome for me
Chris was involved early in getting my case started. He was able to immediately discern the chances of success for my case. He has excellent communication skills and is quite knowledgeable in the area of labor law.

Excellent experience with Chris Ezold
Chris has been our company attorney the past 3 years. He has been knowledgeable, sensitive to our situations and professional at all times. I can recommend Chris without reservation to anyone needing a business attorney.

Physician contract
Mr. Ezold did an excellent job identifying potential issues in the contract, serving as my strong advocate during the contract talks, and negotiating some key changes. His attention to detail and assertive style impressed me greatly.
Posted by Joseph Giannone | December 12, 2014
Professional, prompt, and knowledgable
Chris has helped me with quite a bit in a short amount of time, my knowledge is limited due to my age so when an issue rises that I do not have knowledge of in terms of a legal matter I turn to Christopher for help and he always has the answers which clarifies everything and relieves my stress. I just wanted to say Thank You.

Very knowledgeable and creative.
I was very pleased with my experience with Chris. Friendly, efficient, very knowledgeable. I couldnt ask for more. He listened, answered my questions, and thought of how other areas of the law applied such as what the IRS's response might be. We would definitely use his firm again.
Posted by Chris | December 11, 2014
Solid service, very attentive, very professional.
I've worked with Chris Ezold many times over the last half dozen years, and sought his advice on at least a dozen matters. He's never failed to respond in a timely way, and has always provided solid counsel.

Prudent, Knowledgeable and Value Priced
I was in need of legal services in PA and looked at lawyer reviews before coming to a decision. Based on previous positive reviews, I went ahead and set up a visit and met with Mr. Ezold in his office. He was very knowledgeable and responsive with my issue at hand, and I decided to go with his firm. Throughout the case, he has been on point, very knowledgeable, has looked out for my best interests, and has been efficient with actual billing hours. Although my case is still pending, Im glad I have him representing me. I would highly recommend this lawyer.

Unusually skilled and responsive attorney!
It's rare, but at times one runs across a truly top notch attorney - and that's Chris Ezold. I have an unusually complex and difficult business fraud case with a long history to it, but Mr. Ezold immediately laid out a wide array of options, including some that other "superattorneys" missed when I had previously consulted with them. He then formulated a concise step-by-step plan and dove into action...wish us luck! To be continued; this case will likely take at least a year to complete. I am experienced in legal actions and tend to be skeptical. But I have complete faith in Chris Ezold; if anyone can successfully resolve it, he can.

Endorsement for Christopher Ezold and the Ezold law firm
I have had the opportunity to work with Chris and the Ezold law firm many times over the last several years over the course of several companies I have worked for or owned. Though often the need to hire Chris has been for less than pleasant situations, he has always managed to efficiently give us solid guidance and keep us calm and focused on the best possible outcome. The guidance received has been invaluable! Sean

No case is to small
Chris Ezold has had a great reputation for being up front and honest about if it's a case his firm could support and more importantly win. When I spoke with him about my situation with my previous employer and wrongful termination, Chris was quick to respond to let me know that my case could be settled fairly fast and straightforward. Very professional and more importantly great customer service. I would highly recommend Ezold Law Firm, in particular Chris Ezold.

HIGHLY recommend
I had never encountered a legal issue until recently. I had heard about Chris through a friend and called him to ask for his assistance in an ethical/practical/legal matter involving a healthcare employment contract. He was attentive and comforting in his phone conversation with me, during which he answered all my questions that he could without meeting in person. He then suggested a meeting and was extremely flexible in scheduling. During my meeting with Chris, I found him to be knowledgable, professional, kind, warm, and considerate. I felt that he was truly looking out for my best interests and for the "morally sound" way. I got the impression that he is a hardworking man of strong moral value, and I would be proud to have him represent me in any legal matter I may run into throughout the remainder of my career. Most importantly, I trusted him and the advice he gave me. I left my meeting with him having resolved my issue, and, even better, I left with peace of mind. I felt at ease having Chris on my side and knowing that he is only a phone call away. Although I have only had a few hours worth of experience with Chris, I think he is of strong moral character and his intelligence and years of experience are immediately evident. I would recommend him to anyone who has an issue in any area of Chris' legal expertise, including those dearest to me, and in fact I walked out of his office with a stack of business cards to hand out to colleagues and friends!

Trusted advisor
Chris and I met through a professional organization several years ago, and I have since had occasion to seek his counsel a few times. Without exception, his level of responsiveness and generosity with his time has proven invaluable. He is very adept at quickly analyzing circumstances or documents and providing concise and sound recommendations. I have since recommended him to others and will continue to do so without reservation.

Exceptional Employment Attorney
Christpher Ezold is one most insightful and brilliant lawyers I have ever met. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any type of case - but his strength is in representing employees in complex disputes with their employers. He is generous with his time, and provided me with invaluable guidance. Consider yourself fortunate if Christopher and his firm accept you as their client. Your case is in the best possible hands.

Answer to the question at hand was kinda helpful.
Never responded to two messages about reviewing my document or fee for doing so. A simple I'm not interested or my rate is 250 300 or whatever it may be per hour would have greatly been appreciated. I tried two times contacting and never heard anything back.

Not very helpful
I appreciate the prompt response; however, when I asked follow up questions, I did not hear anything from him except to rate him. If a simple reply such as he will contact me to further discuss the case, that would have been appreciated.
