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.

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.

From first-hand experiences I know Christopher Weiss to be the best construction attorney that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I have utilized a few different law firms and attorneys over the past 35 years, being an executive with the Walt Disney World Company, Acousti Engineering Company of Florida, CED Companies, and owning my own company in Tucson Arizona [Tri-J Corporation]. Christopher understands every facet of his practice and was always prepared for anything the opposition had readied and had the attitude going in "we are going to win this"! Christopher is an out-of-the-box thinker, extremely reliable as an attorney and I also value him as a friend. I would highly recommend Christopher to any company needing a law firm and individual if they are serious about using an attorney and wanting to "WIN"!

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.
