An Attorney That Fights For YOU!
Chris Hudson is by far the attorney you want handling your personal injury case. Chris and his team are the most hard working legal professionals I have worked with. You are not a number or a case file to Chris Hudson, you are family and you matter!!! The consult is free, and the legal advice is spot on! The best decision I made after my injury was making my appointment with them. Every call and email matters, and is responded to. I wish I could give Chris and his firm MORE than 5 stars! Thank you Chris, Dawn and Jenn for all you did fighting for me! I am forever grateful! BLESSINGS!!!!!!!!!!!

Car accident
Mr Hudson was very good at keeping me up to date in every aspect of my case. He pays close attention to minor details that escaped even me in regard to the handling of my accident. Was definitely glad Mr Hudson was on my side!

The Best Lawyer Born!!! Superb!!! Amazing!!!
He is beyond amazing! Based on my terrible experience with my previous attorney I fired him andI hired Christopher Hudson to handle my daughters injury case and a seperate injury case for me. My former attorney became irrate and sued me. Christopher Hudson handle my case at no charge due to my financial crisis and the former attorney feeling he could take advantage of me because I couldn't afford to pay an attorney to go against him. My daughter and I sat in utter amazement as a relaxed, Christopher Hudson chewed my former attorney up and spit him out! Then he turned the former attorney witnesses into witnessess that helped my case. Mr. Hudson even got the former attorney's current paralegal into a witness to help my case. Christopher Hudson belongs on TV it was so entertaining! If you want a pro, hire Mr. Christoper Hudson!!!!! You will not be disappointed! I promise!

Excellent Hard-Working Attorney!
Mr. Hudson represented my mother for a serious auto accident. He was very helpful and always made himself available for our questions and peace of mind. His staff is very professional and knowledgeable. They walked us through each step of the process and quickly resolved our case. He explained how the insurance company was trying to diminish our claim and worked hard to get a good settlement for us. He made everything so easy I will recommend him to anyone I know who's been injured in an accident and he'll be the first person I call if I'm every in that situation again!

No Nonsense Attorney with Quick Results
Chris Hudson recently assisted me with a case. Chris handled my matter quickly and produced a great outcome. He is aggresive and will not let his clients get pushed around.

Trusting Attorney
I had the oppertunity to work with Mr.Hudson for 3 1/2 yrs with a personal injury case and a workers comp case simultaneously , he worked very hard at both and no less on the one for $25,000.00 than the one for $250,000.00. He gave me his expert advice on every move and when and what to ask the doctors if at ever there was a point that he did not know the excact answer to he knew who to call to get it, I felt as a friend as well as a client he never made me feel as if I was bothering him or was not important enough. Although I wanted to get it done in a hurry he advised me minute by minute that it wasn't how fast he could solve the case but the quality of the case and if I ever had any more legal action to have to call in an attorney you can trust for my family it will be Christopher Hudson.
