Great Service
Chris helped me with a non-compete situation and did an excellent job managing the case. Chris was able to guide me through the process and provide valuable straightforward advice along the way. I would recommend Chris to anyone that needs someone with strong experience relative to employment law.

Excellent Attorney
We have worked with Chris on several legal issues most recently being labor related. He is very diligent and has an uncanny ability to keep the big picture in mind in the resolution of his cases. It takes an excellent communicator and legal strategist to keep a case moving along, unequivocally proving the points that need to be proven in the face of blatant manipulation of the facts of the case by opposing counsel. He is a true professional.

Chris has been a valuable asset with setting up my business and consulting on legal issues with the company. He is prompt with his responses to questions, and has consistently provided useful direction on any legal issues I've presented to him.

Litigation Attorney | May 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Chris is a very talented trial lawyer and serves as an excellent business adviser. Chris works with a variety of clients from large corporations to sole proprietors. He is well versed in the rules of procedure and has extensive courtroom and jury trial experience. In turn, he uses those courtroom experiences to write solid contracts and business plans for his clients. He does a great job representing his clients and I have personally referred several clients to Chris. I highly endorse this lawyer!"
Employment and labor Attorney | Mar 14
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Chris represented the potential defendant in a recent wage/hour claim for which I represented the claimant. I found him to be a lawyer who stood firmly for his clients' interests, but who did so professionally and without animosity. Chris always presented himself as someone who was fully informed of his clients' side of the case, both legally and factually. I would feel completely comfortable referring a client to Chris in the future if I were unavailable or unable to represent the client."
