I recently have been going through a difficult divorce with a person who has not cooperated and has shown no respect for me or the process. Chris is an excellent attorney. We had a mediation date set, and I was sure we would not have a resolution, but through Chris’ hard work both during mediation and behind the scenes, we not only came to an agreement, but an agreement that was very fair for me and believe me ex did not want that. Chris has been on top f every issues, including getting the opposing attorney to move forward.
I have now worked with Chris for 6 months on this matter and he has not only been an excellent attorney, but his communication is excellent. I am out of State and he has been very responsive to email, phones, calls or anything else I have needed. He has welcomed my mother, who is an attorney, into the process without any issues.
Chris also takes the time to know you as a person. Each time I have talked to Chris he genuinely wants to know how I am and if there is anything he can do.
I truly believe I could not have found a better attorney and highly recommend him to anyone going through a divorce.

Glad it's over. I learned and grew a little more through the process. Got my focus back where it belongs-into more constructive ventures. Thank you Chris.

I want to sincerely thank you for all you did for me and my family. I know it was a long and arduous jorney and I really don't know what we would have done without your help. It is really too bad that it had to take so long and I truly hope you never have to go through another one like this. Your patience is remarkable. I still haven't lost faith in the ability of people to treat each other with dignity and understanding, although for a while I really questioned it. Cheers!
