Highly recommend
Incredibly helpful and very informative. Helped me to understand my case and how we as a team were going to proceed with it to accomplish the best possible outcome. I could not have been more satisfied and should another situation arise, he is the first and only lawyer I will call for help.

Bankruptcy / Financial
Chris showed an extreme amount of trustworthiness, and his level of confidence brought an ease to mind considering my legal situation. His ability to analysis and review details of my financial history, then apply what the law required, in turn made it a much better outcome than I had anticipated. It was very comforting to know I had an attorney that had the knowledge and expertise about bankruptcy that I personally needed.

Got me a great deal
I was arrested for speeding, DUI, and some other tough charges in Holt County. Chris drove up o Oregon, MO and landed me on probation. I managed to complete my terms and my charges have been suspended. Now as far as criminally, police can see this, but as far as businesses and insurance agencies these charges won’t show up on a background check. Pretty happy with my time. Only thing I’d say is work on contacting your clients more. A lot of times when going through the SATOP and what not I had to depend on my PO more.

Great experience
He was consulted and hired for a DWI that was incurred. It was my first offense, and having a family, I did not want the possible reprocussions to effect them. He was discrete, and knowledgeable.

Great lawyer who fights no matter the odds
I called Chris Fink on a Saturday and he met with me the next day, a Sunday! I had a custody lawyer withdraw and had court the coming Monday. (He had only known me and about my case for a day.) We thought that it would be continued since he had just taken my case - it wasn't. The judge made us go on with the custody trial that day. He hardly knew me, hadn't gotten to get a chance to really look into the case much....but he still fought for me. It didn't turn out as badly as I'd thought it might and Chris honestly did everything he could. I ended up with a better result than I thought I'd get given the circumstances. He will fight for you and knows the law. Highly recommend. Thank you for trying your best for me, Chris.

Always impressed
Having used his services a handful of times now, I can honestly say I would never use another attorney. He is professional, honest, and reliable. I've always been impressed with how quickly calls and/or emails are returned by him or his office staff. if you are in need of legal services I strong recommend using this law office.

WOW STOP YOUR SEARCH
Chris shocked me when he contacted me on a Saturday afternoon to help me through some traffic problems I was going thru. Even after I told him I had already hired an attorney, this man was still willing to help. I'm just amazed with the help he provided. He answered all my questions in a language I could understand. And wiped the worries I was having a way. I will use him in the future and recommend his services when I can . Awesome person. Thanks again sir. I sure appreciate it

Outstanding Lawyer
I was in need of a lawyer for a personal injury case and Mr. Fink came highly recommended in the Kansas City area. He was very timely and professional. I believe any client would find him a pleasure to work with. Not only was he professional but very knowledgeable and creative. I will continue to reach out to Mr. Fink for any legal advice and or needs in the future as well as reccomend him to others for their needs.

If your needing a lawyer he's your guy!
He was honest and listened. I felt like I could be honest with him so he could get me the best outcome. I felt like I didn't have to stay on top of him, he had everything under control. I have felt like other lawyers you have to constantly call them to show you mean business. In this case he ment business and wants to please his Clients.

Glad he is my "Go To.."
Fink has represented me from divorce to simple traffic tickets. He has been a good source of knowledge with timely responses. I have referred family and my clients to Fink with positive outcomes.

Need a genuine lawyer? Don't even Fink about it!
Mr. Fink has represented myself personally and my business on several occassions. His ability to discover my rights as the law is argued and/or interpreted has always left me with a sense of self assurance that hints of being almost that of family . Always a professional I'll turn to the distinguished attorney Chris Fink. Now I have a friend in the law business.

Very Helpful and Knowledgable Lawyer
Chris was very supportive and helpful. During our first meeting, he displayed more knowledge and genuine care than my previous lawyer did for the whole 6 months of working with her. Highly recommended.
