| Hired Attorney
Christopher Klemawesch
Christopher was extremely professional and guided me through the legal process. He was very helpful and acted in a caring manner. The case he represented me in was a traffic court case and he handled everything for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring attorney counsel.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Friendly, smart, and aggressive
Consulted twice regarding a bureaucratic error that led to the state listing my driver's license as invalid. He is efficient, smart, and personable. He is well-known in W Florida from spending years as a prosecutor, so he has a real handle on how to get things done. He guided me through the process quickly and effectively. He prepared documentation that convinced the judge to dismiss my case immediately and cancel all penalties and fines.
