PreNup
Chris was wonderful ironing out all the insane details of our prenup. He was patient, even with the revisions that we requested. No prenup is easy, because it bring the reality that marriage isn't always a fairytale, but for as difficult a processes that it is, Chris made it easy.

Highly Recommended!
A friend of mine referred me to Chris for an issue my wife had with her workplace. Chris spent a considerable amount of time breaking down different options and strategies. He then referred us to a lawyer who specialized in our area, which he felt would better serve us. Afterward, Chris went the extra mile and offered future consultation for our issue, and even additional referrals should we need them. All in all Chris was very knowledgeable, professional, and resourceful! He treated my wife and I like we were family. For all legal inquiries I would highly recommend Chris!

My wife and I left feeling accomplished in our choices and we wouldn't of been able to do that with out the professionalism and respect that Chris showed us.

Great Litigator!
I was in a tough situation and needed help in a civil matter. I hired Chris based off reviews and I couldn't be happier. He took the time to fully explain the situation to me and what to do next. He fought the case in court and did a phenomenal job and we won!
