Mr. Weiss grasped the serious nature of the OSHA violations against us. We contested the claim, and when an informal settlement could not be reached, we sucessfully tried the case before an administrative law judge and won.

Chris has represented me in various cases for 16 years - when he was with Maguire, Voorhis & Wells, Holland and Knight and now in his private practice. His knowledge and expertise in the field of construction litigation is consistently beyond that of opposing attorneys. He has also advised me on non-construction related matters and I have found that if he isn't familiar with a subject already, he can make himself an expert overnight. I am taking the time to write this recommendation because I have been truly impressed by Chris. I consider him a friend and would heartily recommend him to anyone.

Chris is a great attorney not only for his vast experience and knowledge of the law, but for his compassion for his clients, willingness to mentor, and relentlessly upbeat personality. I cannot recommend Chris enough.

Chris and I are Holland & Knight alums. He delivers high-quality, big-firm legal services with a small-firm personal touch. I always enjoy co-counseling with Chris whenever the opportunity arises.
