Trustworthy
If you're looking for help with legal issues, look no further than Chris McAvoy. After a not so pleasant experience with another attorney, Chris stepped in, cleaned up the mess and put me at ease. It was such a relief to work with someone who is competent, takes initiative and takes pride in what he does. Both he and his wonderful staff are friendly, honest, knowledgeable and prompt. They return all phone calls and emails and never once made me feel like I was insignificant or a bother. I highly recommend Chris and his team and am forever grateful for McAvoy Law Firm!

Awesome in any matter...
Chris has been excellent every time we have hired him. From bankruptcy to probate he has been able to handle it all. In fact he handled each case with such professionalism, that I trusted him to work my mother on her divorce case.

Smart Responsive Attorney
Chris is knowledgeable, straight forward and honest. He has been a great source for my debt issues. His support has reduce the stress involved when dealing with the legal system. The comfort level Chris created with me made our conversions like "talking to my brother".

EXCELLENT LAWYER
Mr McAvoy, put my mind at ease. I came to him, so worried and depressed, about my financial problems. He is a straight forward guy, very knowledgeable, and kept me updated on what was going on. It was so painless, and the weight just lifted of my shoulders. I will forever be grateful, and if I ever need a lawyer again, for any reason, I know I can call on Mr McAvoy. I have been recommending him, to quite a few of my friends, in the last 6 months, and will continue to do so. I have to mention to, that his Secretary Kathy, has been so wonderful, and helpful too. When I go to their office, I feel like, I am visiting friends. I feel so comfortable with them. I just can't say enough.

Chris has represented me very well
Chris represented me in a DUI case. This was a situation where I was convicted 3 times in a span of 7 years. This usually guarantees a felony and a 5 year license revocation. But, somehow Chris managed to get the judge to issue a misdemeanor and a much shorter revocation. He also represented me while going through the license restoration process and I was fortunate enough to be reinstated on the first attempt. Couldn't have asked for more from Chris.

Client Review
Chris handled my Bankruptcy at the end of 2006. After being unemployed for over a year, I needed an attorney to help me file bankruptcy. And, after calling several attorneys and visiting one other, I felt too overwhelmed with all that the other attorneys expected me to do to file bankruptcy. When I went to Chris he was very supportive and helpful during a time in my life when I was very depressed and feeling that things weren't going to get any better. He helped me get through the bankruptcy process without any added stress. I have recommended Chris to many of my family and friends. hide
