Dism
Having Mr Wright as my lawyer was such a comfort. He gave me the needed confidence to stay focused and positive. More importantly, He treated me as a friend and not a client. He did such a wonderful job in all aspects of the proceedings. I am forever grateful!!

Satisfied Client
During these uncertain times i contacted Mr. Wright to represent me for a DUI. Mr. Wright told me he would help me get my license back but because of Covid 19 we were unable to go to court. At times i was very nervous and unsure of the outcome but Mr. Wright stayed calm, did his research and got me my license back like he said he would. I am grateful to have found this experienced, detailed oriented lawyer to represent me

A great lawyer
Mr. Wright treated my case with the upmost concern. Even when I was in a panic mode, he comfort me with the procedure of the law and court. He was able to have my case dismiss

Mr Wright took my case when I had most needed immediate help. Thank you. He is great to work with. Anytime I need legal help I will call on him. Very pleased with his performance and flexibility in communication.

Effective and efficient
Chris did some amazing legal work for my case! Managed to avoid what would have been a lot of money to pay out, for being found at fault. He talked to the other side and they dropped the case!

Knowledgeable Lawyer
I contacted Christopher to get some info on what my rights are if I get a divorce. A friend who has worked with him before gave me his info. I liked that he was available and I didn't have to wait too long for the consultation. He answered all my questions and I definitely felt better informed afterward.
