  • Jonathan D. McDowell

    I endorse Chris without hesitation or apprehension. I only recommend other attorneys that I myself would feel comfortable handling a matter for me. I know that Chris is energetic, determined, hard-working, and precise. He has a great deal of experience in a many various arenas in the legal field and seems to transition from one matter to another seamlessly. I would not have any qualms about having Chris handle a legal matter for me. I was first introduced to Chris when he took over the position of Chair of the Missouri Bar Solo and Small Firm Committee. His leadership capabilities instantly impressed me. He is has an ability to lead a group of lawyers. He takes a great deal of information into consideration and distills it quickly and effectively. I'm please to say that I am a young lawyer at this time to be able to learn from someone as versatile and intelligent as Chris Wendeldo.
