Peace of Mind
I can't say enough about the way Chris handled, and continues to handle our case. He goes above and beyond to deliver the best outcome possible. He is extremely knowledgable, competent and hard-working. We have been very impressed with everyone from the firm that we have had contact with, and highly recommend Chris.

I would use Chris Faiella as my attorney again!
Chris did an excellent job for us. He was very courteous, compassionate and genuine with my wife and I in our circumstances. His staff treated us very well. Very professional, yet approachable, real people too. Chris came across as just a working dad like me, just doing his job. No "big shot lawyer" attitude. Very easy to talk to.

Chris did an excellent job representing us. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. He is very compassionate and has a true, genuine concern for each of his clients and their best interests. From the first initial consultation to the end of the process, Chris was with me every step of the way. He is very easy to speak with, truly listens to your questions and concerns, and takes the time to explain something if you don't understand, so you can be fully informed. With his open line of communication, I was able to receive consistent updates, and he always responded very quickly to any questions I may have. Chris has an unwavering work ethic and personal drive that is second to none. He thoroughly investigates and researches from every possible angle to ensure his clients the best possible outcome. If you are looking for a highly knowledgeable, genuine and compassionate attorney that will give 200% to you and your best interest- I highly and fully recommend Chris Faiella. He truly raises the bar of excellence

Great job
Chris did an excellent job representing my interests. This was my first experience with a situation such as this and Chris did a flawless job of explaining all possibilities, researching the case, preparing himself, and preparing me for my testimony. I was very apprehensive about the situation going into my initial meeting with Chris, but felt much more at ease with it immediately afterward. During the entire process Chris kept me informed of what he was doing, what his thoughts were, and how I should present myself and my testimony. Overall, an excellent job of preparing himself and me, which made me feel much more in control of the situation, enabling me to relax and concentrate on the facts of the case rather than worrying about potential pitfalls.
