Christopher Austin has been my lawyer principally for various contract negotiations, but also in other areas of law as well. He excels not only in pre-arranging contracts, but also in dealing with the parties directly to maximize the benefits of the whole negotiation surrounding it. He carefully researches the details of the contract and thinks of different approaches I could take that I would have never thought of. Chris is very professional and has always provided me with high quality legal representation. He takes a personal interest in the matter either by calling or email, and keeps each communication cogently to the point. He is tech savvy and has a great legal mind. Once we had a last minute issue come up regarding one of my negotiations and Chris stood up all night working to ensure we met the deadline and had a favorable outcome. You will rarely see this in any occupation. Chris provided me with clear explanations of my options and the legal impact of each throughout our negotiations. I highly recommend him, if you want to feel secure with a great advocate in your corner.

I used Christopher Austin for my family's estate planning a few years ago and really enjoyed my experience. I then chose Christopher to represent me with my purchase into a longstanding local business. I was way over my head and Christopher was a lifesaver. He was constantly thinking two steps ahead of me and explained each circumstance in detail. He replied to my phone calls and emails promptly and professionally. I would and will continually highly recommend Christopher Austin to all my friends and business associates.

Christopher 'updated' our estate documents when we moved to Aiken; they had been done in two other states by highly recommended attorneys - none of them asked the questions that Christopher did. He also talked to us about issues that had never been addressed before. For the first time, I felt that we understood what we had and that we had covered all that needed to be done.
I have also recommended people to him that are starting businesses and they thanked me because he had also asked them questions they had not considered in order to better protect their assets and set the business up properly.
