Chris charged me once for a case that ended up taking 2 years to be settled because of covid delays with the courts requiring his appearance and attention at least a dozen times. He maintained professionalism and cooperation the entire time, working with the prosecutor and eventually the case was dismissed. Highly satisfied.

Chris was able to get my criminal felony charges dropped. He told me initially that he would hopefully be able to get them dropped and he produced on his word. My case extended over several years, and at times I was unsure of what was going to happen. Chris never treated me like a criminal and went above and beyond to help me overcome would could have been the most detrimental incident of my professional career. However he was able to get the charges dropped and I was able to move forward with my professional career, and my family life.

DUI/traffic charges
Mr. Combs is top notch. Definitely worth retaining. Has been relentlessly working to defend me. You will be more than satisfied with his 5-star service.

Minor case, treated as an important client
I had two fairly minor traffic tickets that Mr. Combs took care of for me. I know he handles lots of higher profile, and frankly more important, cases, but he always kept me informed as to the progress of mine and gave me very specific instructions about what he needed from me. I hate navigating through bureaucracy but he made it easy and nearly painless. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

I got my first DUI and I was terrified. My decision to hire Mr. Combs was largely based on his comfortable and confident demeanor. Because of his instruction and hard work, I was able to complete everything and get through my case with ease and most importantly WITHOUT losing my Drivers License. He kept me informed every step of the way and was very knowledgeable. Chris was always totally upfront with me and answered all my questions (and there was a TON of them) in a timely manner. It is hard to find an attorney who will go above and beyond for their clients, and I absolutely feel that Mr. Combs does this. I received excellent and reliable representation with an end result better than expected. I hope and pray that I will not need his services in the future, but if i do I will most definitely call Chris to represent me again.

Made court comforting
Chris truly exceeded my expectations! While Chris was helping me resolve my legal issues he couldn't have been more proficient and courteous. He came highly recommended and I found him to be reliable, prompt, and extremely knowledgeable. His integrity is unmatched and right off the back I knew I could trust him, but most of all he gave me the confidence I needed to ensure I get the best results for my case.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"As a fellow lawyer in St. Louis who mainly practices civil litigation as opposed to criminal defense, I have referred multiple clients and friends to Chris who are dealing with criminal matters, including small issues such as traffic warrant recalls, as well as more serious criminal matters such as DWI/DUI's. Everyone who I have referred to Chris thus far has reported back to me that they received excellent representation and were pleased with the results that Chris obtained on their behalf. He has a reputation for being a strong and effective negotiator who obtains favorable results for his clients. Overall, I would consider Chris as my go-to criminal defense lawyer for referrals of any and all criminal matters."
