His response was timely, honest, and responsible. Although, unable to assist me himself he advised me where I could find the answers I needed. I appreciate the followup!

I contacted Chris about several employment issues. At my consultation I explained the situation with my current employer. I was confused and didn't know what to do. He answered all my questions, gave me some specific information, and a To Do List. Chris was extremely helpful!!
I would definitely hire Chris as my attorney, if and when I am able to take legal action in this matter.
Just off the consultation alone, I'd give Chris an A+..
I would definitely recommend this attorney to anyone and I haven't even hired him as my attorney yet..

Chris is excellent to work with. He explains legal situations in language I can understand. He takes a very personal approach. He has also been successful in litigation and excellent with contracts. I definitely recommend him.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
