Christopher is superb!
Have you ever been in a car accident? Unfortunately— I was. And I was in need of personal legal counsel. Fortunately however, a friend referred me to contact Christopher Reynolds and I am so grateful that I did. Prior to contacting Christopher, my situation was overwhelming, intimidating and frightening. I felt defenseless and flustered in my case. Until, I contacted Christopher Reynolds, attorney at law to represent me. Christopher went above and beyond, at every occasion to ensure I was taken care of, well informed and communicated with on every step of the case. Christopher’s actions assured me that he was fighting for me every step of the way and following best practices of law, ethics and integrity to get an end result with my highest interest. With great sincerity, I cannot appreciate Christopher’s work enough. If you have been in an accident or are injured and are in need of an attorney who will give you white-glove treatment, Christopher Reynolds, attorney at law is my absolute recommendation.

Highly Recommend hiring Mr. Reynolds
Chris was recommended to me by a friend who had also been in a collision. My case was different and difficult to decipher because of some of the circumstances surrounding my case. Not only did Chris direct me through the insurance part of it, but he also worked hard to get me the best settlement possible. I will definitely recommend him to any friend that may have a case.

Best decision I could’ve made
After having real bad experiences with previous attorneys who neither cared for their clients on any human level other than their wallet, I got frustrated and asked my chiropractor if he knew of a good attorney with real morals and values. Without skipping a beat my chiropractor immediately gave me Mr. Reynolds’s name, whom I immediately contacted. Upon initially talking to Chris I felt a real connection and a sincere caring for my well being. I know sales pitches when I hear them and this was real sincerety. After hiring Chris I soon realized this was the best decision I ever could’ve made. He is passionate about helping people, extremely intelligent, more experience than insurance companies can handle, and will fight for you and think of you BEFORE himself at all times. If you don’t believe me, try him. The next thing you know you will be on here, like me, thanking me for this review and praising Chris for the absolute best results you’ll ever be able to obtain in your individual situations. I have over 200 customers I take care of and Chris is the guy I recommend to my own customers when they need a real, sincere, champion of an attorney because I care deeply for my own customers. Bottom line? You want both the best results in your individual cases and to be treated like family? You will be very hard pressed to find it in this day and age outside of Chris Reynolds Law Firm. I feel blessed to have met him and have thanked my chiropractor countless times. Good luck to each of you. Choose wisely because you only have one chance at this.

Excellent attorney. Very pleased client
Chris was referred to me by another attorney whom I trust. He came to my home to speak with me since I wasn't in the shape to come to him. He is very professional and he made himself available to answer my question in a timely manner. He kept in touch with me about my case and made sure my medical needs were meet. I am very satisfied with the service Chris provided. I recommend him to family and friends.

Chris took a very difficult case, and navigated it successfully! My case was a serious motor vehicle accident, involving a hit and run driver, an alleged "stolen car" report, and many other hurdles. He was great about staying in touch, advising me about realistic expectations, and fought hard to move my case along, despite resistance from the insurance co. of the at-fault driver. I would heartily recommend him to anyone seeking an Attorney that they can truly count on to aggressively pursue justice on their behalf!

Best Lawyer EVER!!!
Chris is an extremely thorough and competent Lawyer who always kept my best interests in mind. He worked diligently with resolving my case and resolved everything without any stress to me. I was always informed, he never missed any scheduled meetings, and he always took my calls and made himself available to me. My case is settled in a fair manner and I hold the sincerest gratitude to Chris for his superior job! Thank you so much Chris! If ever the need, I will use you again and/or send my highest recommendation to others.

Very good Attorney and always available to help answer questions!
I was involved in a car accident and was injured by another driver. I was scared and full of anxiety because I knew I needed medical care but I didn't want to deal with the insurance company which I didn't feel had my best interest at heart. I am so thankful I found Chris , I called him at 6:30 in the evening and explained what happened and that I had never been in a car wreck before and I needed to talk to someone like himself. Chris spoke to me for at least 45 minutes on the phone answering my questions. I told him I would like to meet with him as soon as possible to discuss things further, Chris actially came over to my house that evening and when he left he told me to focus on getting myself better and he would handle the rest. I liked that he kept his word, he checked in on me from time to time to make sure I was doing ok. He never made me feel like he didn't have the time to talk if I needed to speak with him or text. If you want a Lawyer that has values and follows through with things then look no further. I am so glad I chose Chris to take care of my case and would highly recommend him to my family, friends and neighbors.

Professional, Thorough a pleasure to speak to.
Chris is one of the most professional people let alone lawyers I have ever met. He's almost always available and will always return a phone call, email, text message. He's very easy to contact and very understanding. The best attorney I have ever worked with I recommend him to all my friends and family.

Excellent Personal Injury Attorney
Christopher Reynolds is an excellent attorney. I strongly reccomend his counsel to anyone seeking out a personal injury attorney. After my car accident, I seeked out Mr. Reynolds. He came strongly recommended, to me. Once hired, he handled everything, as soon as possible, before I even asked for assistance. He eased my stress and worry, was thoroughly informed, about the facts of my case and was extremely patient with me. I never felt like a bother to him and he always responded to as soon as possible. I was never "waiting on him", felt unimportant or snubbed by him. He made me feel like I mattered. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case and would recommend him to anyone seeking counsel.

Best Attorney ever!!
Chris personally met with my husband and I two hours after I initially made the phone call to his office. He has personally responded to everyone of our emails and/or phone calls in a very timely manner. He has gone above and beyond to help us out, as we went from owing thousands of dollars, to looking like we may not owe anything! If you are looking for a lawyer that genuinely cares about you ... I would highly recommend Chris Reynolds, as he is amazing!!!!

works for his clients as if they were his family
he outlined our pluses and minuses. he did not claim that he was the Second Coming. he laid out a plan of action. he did not jump at their first offer. he spelled out our +'s and -'s. he was successful. his fee was very fair. his expenses were minimal. i would rate him as great to have on your side. this rating, and obvious recommendation, i am an 83 year old retired former owner of a multi-million $ distribution business. i needed an attorney 1500 miles away from my home. i couldn't have made a better choice to represent me!

Auto Accident and Fall
Mr. Reynolds is professional and courteous at all times. He is knowledgeable and forthright. His concern always seemed to be my well being. I was kept aware of progress and received a fair settlement in my auto case as well as a more than fair settlement for my injuries due to a fall in a parking lot. He assisted me in making sure all my medical issues were handled prior to settlement and did not make me feel rushed to settle. I have referred Mr. Reynolds to people I care about and would do so again without hesitation. I hope to not have a need for a personal injury lawyer again but I would trust Mr. Reynolds to refer me to the appropriate attorney if I were in need of any legal advice or assistance.

Mr. Reynolds is a fantastic, knowledgeable attorney. He told me everything I needed and wanted to know about the whole experience. He really knows how to lay out the issues to a judge and any other attorneys. If you should need a personal injury attorney he is great.

Chris is an excellent attorney!
I was fortunate to have Chris represent me for my car accident. Even though it was a very stressful time in my life, Chris had the ability to put me at ease during the entire process. He was always very professional, helpful, and thoughtful. I was not treated as just another case. Instead, I was treated like a real person. Should the need arise again, I would not hesitate to choose Chris. I recommend him highly.

Review for Chris
Christopher Reynolds is an exceptional lawyer. He handled my case involving a car accident. Chris was recommended to me by a co-worker and I thank him all the time. I could not have asked for a better lawyer to handle my needs. He is GREAT!

Look no further. Chris is the best.
What an awesome experience it was working with Chris. I felt like I was in good hands from day one. Chris is a real professional who knows how to explain things to the layman. He knows his craft well. Chris explained each step of the process and handled all the legal issues in a timely manner. Any time I called he was available right away. I felt that He really cared about me as a client and he made me feel that I was his #1 priority at all times. Chris is very experienced in what he does and it shows in the way he handled all the twists and turns we had to tackle in my case. He was concerned for my health and made sure I was compensated fairly. Without him I don't think I would have been treated fairly.
