    I battled Chris on many cases when I was a Deputy Prosecutor. He is very tenacious and an excellent advocate. He cares about his clients and won't give up the fight for a quick and easy result.

    I have worked with Chris for several years. We had cases against each other when I was a deputy prosecutor and worked on cases together as defense attorneys. Chris is knowledgeable on the law and court system. He is a strong advocate for his clients and I would recommend his services.
