I had an excellent experience with Chris. He was so knowledgeable and all of his responses were prompt. His attention and time spent on the case really put me at ease. I never doubted I had made the right decision in choosing him. I can't recommend him enough and will continue to refer him to friends and family.

After hiring a very incompetent attorney to handle a legal matter that wound up getting entirely out of control due to poor handling and management, I hired Chris Renz to pick up the pieces. Although the options in front of him were slim by the time my case found his desk, he provided me with sound advice after I explained to him my desired outcome of this legal matter. In the end, I took his advice, and although he would've had more to gain in subsequent billings/business by giving me the opposite advice, he looked out for my best interest. For that, I am thankful.

Chris assisted me in drafting and completing the child custody and support paperwork for my daughter (Name Removed). A joint agreement was ultimately filed between me and (Name Removed)'s father, but not without a substantial amount of guidance and support from Chris.
Chris was available and approachable to answer all of my questions regarding the process. In addition, he was extremely level-headed and calming throughout the process, which I greatly appreciated.
I have nothing but high praise regarding my experience in working with Chris. His professionalism combined with genuine compassion made him a great choice for me in this situation and I would definitely refer him to others and reach out to him if legal assistance was needed in the future.

Chris has years of experience in his various areas of practice. We first met while on opposite sides of misdemeanor criminal cases, and eventually we began to refer cases to each other. I trust him with my clients, I know he will do a terrific job representing them.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Chris for many years and have worked opposite Chris in numerous criminal cases. I know from personal experience he is not only highly skilled in the areas of law in which he practices but he is one of the most ethical and classiest lawyers I have ever known in my 36 years of being a lawyer. Any one who hires Chris is in the best of hands.
