Attention to detail
I sold my condo and Christian was my lawyer- he kept tabs on all the timelines and details and walked me through everything. Selling was stressful but he made it much easier. Very professional and easy to talk to, thanks Christian!

Detail perfectionist!
Christian is an amazing lawyer. He represented me with the purchase of my first home. During the entire process he was very detailed in explaining not only the process but any potential issues that could show up. During the closing he went through each page of paperwork thoroughly and explained anything thing that I may have misunderstood. I would definitely recommend him!!!

I can’t speak highly enough of Christian
I am a brand new business owner and Christian helped me convert my business from a sole proprietorship to an LLC. He handled everything and was incredibly thorough and helpful in explaining what was actually happening. I have very little legal knowledge and he was approachable with questions and concerns I had as the process proceeded. His rate is reasonable for new businesses and feel like I couldn’t have asked for better situation. Along with forming the LLC he also created a custom tailored sales agreement for customers to sign before any work is done to protect me from any possible lawsuit on the goods I make. I plan on using him for all my future business law needs.
