  • Carrie Beth Williamson

    I endorse this lawyer. Chris is an experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated advocate for his clients. Chris and I represented opposing clients on a civil matter a couple of years ago and I found him to be a very civil and pleasant colleague to work with.

  • Douglas Christopher Fredrick

    I represented a client with a very complicated fact pattern in Chris' home county, and since my office is several counties away the client also hired Chris as the "boots on the ground." Through his knowledge of the law and personal finesse, Chris helped to negotiate a very good outcome for the client. He was very easy to work with and definitely a team player.
