My Husband and I used Christopher for the sale of our home and we have nothing but good things to say. He was honest, knowledgeable and so helpful. For a busy attorney he is also very responsive through emails and phone. He helped make our sale and closing so easy for us, despite some bumps in the road. We enjoyed working with him so much that we referred him to 2 family members that he has done good by and we plan on using his services for the purchase of our next home. We highly recommend him!

Chris took on an industry behemoth on my behalf and settlement was negotiated within 7 months!
He tackled the assignment with vigor and confidence; his analytics and brief were top notch and I believe that is what got the other side to the table in such short order. He's also quick on his feet ~ right back in their faces when the opposing side came at us. Good command of the laws and pressure points too.
On a personal note, Chris is a pleasure to work with, compassionate, empathetic and kind ~ he'll listen to you, work hard for you and be an effective advocate. The other side did not see him coming! Very happy with my outcome.

My experience working with Chris provided an outcome nothing short of excellence. What separated him from other consultations included his extensive knowledge of the financial services and real estate industries since he has worked in both. This includes but is not limited to contract loop holes, compliance around equity and commodity trading, as well as, suitability and risk management. My legal matter had deep layers of complexity but he was able to break down our course of action in a manner that I could understand and be comfortable with. He spent additional time getting to know my frustrations and was able not only to execute successfully but manage my expectations and emotions simultaneously. If I can leave one thing to anyone reading this review it's this: the key difference between a good attorney and great attorney is knowledge of industries outside the legal realm that provide a more thorough understanding of a client's situation.
Leverage Chris Lufrano's services and you will get an understanding of my statement above.
