Prior to becoming an attorney, I have previous experience as a law enforcement officer in North Carolina as well as prior service in the U.S. Army. 

I am not your typical attorney.  I have a wide variety of experience including successful small business ownership and management, insurance claims and auditing, conducting investigations and logistics management.  My variety of experience allows me to quickly understand a situation and be able to look at things from my client's point of view in addition.

I have employed attorneys in the past and I have a strong opinion of how an attorney should treat their clients.  I focus on communication and customer service.  I'm here to serve my clients.

Chris is absolutely a great attorney, very knowledgeable, direct and available as I found out when I hired him. Living in Ohio and being a father it seems options are limited with respect to custody, child support and so on. I explained my situation with respect to my son and Chris delivered the legalities of the situation so that I could take action offensively and defensively. I won’t go into all the details but would and have recommended him to my friends that need assistance in his area of expertise. From the feet up he’s a quality attorney.

Caring Professional lawyer
For years I tried to get custody of my son . For a number of reasons I didn't have success with the courts. I was referred to Mr. Alley by a friend. From the start he was available, caring and gave me specific direction to help me build my case. He truly went above and beyond to help my son and I. In the end I did get full custody and I have thanked him many times and have referred many people to him. Thanks again Chris.

He is your guy!
He have me good solid advice and was there when I needed him. What more could you ask for? Only attorney I have ever met that told me straight and didn't try to pad their time. You can't go wrong.

Dedication and Determination at it's finest!
Attorneys and Lawyers have always had this bad reputation for being snakes and money hungry fools who like to pull their clients around for as long as possible. Christopher Alley is living proof that this imagery is entirely False. Christopher has proven to me that he cares and is willing to take every extra step to go above and beyond to help someone in need. Christopher works fast, efficiently, and powerfully. He was available to help immediately when everyone else was not. I couldn't recommend Christopher Alley to anyone in need enough. Dealing with the court system is a grueling and stressful process, however, Christopher makes the unfortunate experience much easier to handle. If I'm ever in need, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Christopher Alley again; and you shouldn't hesitate to contact him now.
