Extremely knowledgeable and professional lawyer
Chris Cox was very professional and provided the upmost care when it came to our case. With his expert negotiation and knowledge we were able to settle our case without having to proceed to court.

Chris knows his stuff!
I used Chris Cox for my divorce and a business matter. During my divorce, it was Chris who continued to look out for my best interests in the present time and the future. He's a lawyer with a heart, which one doesn't always find these days. He also helped me with a business matter that needed tending. He was efficient, resourceful and, as always, pleasant to work with. I highly recommend him!
