  • Cornelius Byron Hayes

    When a person chooses Chris LaPan as his or her lawyer, he or she has retained a multitalented, academically superior, honorable, honest, caring, human being. Chris is transparent, forthright, fair and extremely conscientious. The quality of his character always benefits his clients. Chris possesses the very best attributes of lawyering. He takes the high road with a cooperative approach, always being factually informed and holding sound legal reasoning for any position taken. He seeks a remedy, not a wreck. Unfortunately, the world of divorce can sometimes hold the ugliest of circumstances making litigation necessary. If so, Chris' clients' can rest assured that he will navigate their lives to safe waters while demonstrating decorum, knowledge, and skill in the courtroom.

  • Jared Phillip Baker

    Chris is an excellent advocate for his clients who far exceeds what is merely required of him. Chris goes the extra-mile for his clients and develops creative and unique resolutions to tailor-fit those he serves. Chris' intellect oft outweighs his fellow counsel, thus providing his clients with an immediate advantage. With enthusiasm, I highly recommend Chris.
