Great Lawyer

Great lawyer for Small Business needs
I recently worked with Chris to resolve a legal issue that my small business was facing, and I couldn't be happier with the results. From start to finish, Chris and his team were highly responsive, knowledgeable, and communicative throughout the entire process. They took the time to understand the specifics of my case, provided clear guidance on my options, and ultimately helped me achieve a favorable outcome. I would highly recommend Chris Bondani's law firm to anyone in need of legal assistance, and I will certainly be returning to them for any future needs. Thank you again for all of your hard work and dedication!

Great Attorney
As the executor of my mother's estate and upon her passing, I retained Mr. Bondani to provide legal oversight as I executed my duties. His depth of wisdom and counsel was extremely helpful. He was incredibly patient as I encountered obstacle after obstacle and needed legal counsel to understand what the law did and did not require. It's been nearly two years now and the end is in sight and he was with me every step of the way. I strongly recommend him.

Highly Recommend this Lawyer
Let’s just say for starters you will be hard pressed to find a better or more knowledgeable Lawyer than Chris. He went to bat for me with some fraudulent activity at huge nation wide bank and actually had good results and still fighting for more. That’s the kind of man he is, someone who actually cares about his clients best interests. Thanks more than I can express Chris Bondani

Highly recommended.
Christopher handled our closing from start to finish. He was always responsive to the many questions that came up along the way. His guidance provided us with the support and assurance we needed purchasing a home in a new area for us. I thank and highly recommended Christopher and will surely use him again in the future.

Very professional, detail-oriented attorney!
My husband and I retained Mr. Bondani during the Fall of 2018 to assist us with estate planning work. Mr. Bondani was extremely efficient, professional, detail-oriented and very helpful. He answered all of our questions and explained everything in great detail. We would use him again for future work and highly recommend him.

Amazing!
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Christopher Bondani with the Hill and Bondani firm. The professionalism that was demonstrated during all of this is a rare find. I always received excellent service! He was knowledgeable, kept me up to date thru the entire event and was always quick to respond to emails or phone calls. Here’s some background, I was purchasing a home in the Julington Creek Planation area while selling my other home. I had some extraordinary difficult situations come up on title of the home I was purchasing. Mr. Bondani quickly assessed the situation and was able to come up with a resolution. He saved not only me but also the homeowner whom was selling from making a huge financial error that involved a third party that wormed there way into the seller’s end, attempting to steal her funds from the sale of her home and refusing to return our deposit. Mr. Bondani always returned my phone calls (if they weren’t answered when I called) within minutes along with my emails. I felt as if my questions were always answered, along with any update’s. He was there to answer all my questions from the home I was buying and selling on the day of closing for each home. Mr. Bondani was nothing short of amazing. I will always be grateful to him, and his efficient/effective ways. There is no doubt Mr. Bondani will represent you and your interest first, he will also treat you with professionalism and sincerity. We as a family thank you Mr. Bondani for all your dedication and hardwork.

My family recently contacted Chris regarding a probate issue. Not only was he knowledgeable on the subject, but he also showed compassion towards us that was very much needed during that time. Chris made sure that we understood our rights and the process as a whole. I would definitely seek his counsel again.

Great lawyer...took time to teach me, very compassionate, and truly cared about my needs!
Mr. Bondani was an amazing lawyer. My company had some serious tax concerns and we had never sought legal advice on the subject before. Mr. Bondani took the time to understand what I was trying to accomplish and he fully understood how to make sense of the complex issues that my organization was facing. He was genuine and straightforward. I never felt like Mr. Bondani was trying to get as much money out of me as he could and I never felt intimidated when I worked with him. He was knowledgable, only gave me the facts without sugar-coating them, and he worked with me in a way that helped me learn and grow. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Bondani.

Tax Client
I found Chris through the Hyatt legal plan and got help for my tax issue. He helped me reestablish my payment plan with the IRS. It took a lot of time and we worked together a lot. I don't think for a second everything would have gone so well. Thanks.

Chris Bondani
Chris did a tremendous job helping me with a tax issue. He was readily accessible when I had questions. He answered them in plain language that I could understand, and he took time to explain things to me. I appreciate his professionalism.

Excellent Choice
My husband and I hired what we thought were a reputable tax firm to complete our taxes. (2010 & 2011). We thought that everything had been handled smoothly when suddenly we received a notice from the IRS that some of our deductions were not allowed. My husband contacted the tax firm who promptly told us that they only entered the information (which was not true-they actually advised us on what to do). They refused to intercede with the IRS on our behalf. My husband tried numerous times to send them the information they asked for only to be told that our case had been transferred somewhere else. We contacted Attorney Chris Bondani, and he immediately told us what we needed to do. He went above what what he had to do to help us to resolve the matter. I would not hesitate to use him again and probably will to complete our taxes in the future, He was never too busy to answer our questions and kept us informed during the entire frustrating process.

Friendly and Responsive
I hired Chris to help with estate matters and found him to be extremely responsive. I have hired attorneys before who have been hard to reach and distant. Chris was always available.
