Criminal Defense
I was facing ten years for an incident with a child. I was worried but Christopher assured me to let him handle it. My life changed in a blink of an eye. Christopher jump in the ring and found for me. He file papers and asked questions that I had no ideas about. He stayed in touch with me to make sure I was always ready for court. His law firm is the place to go if you need help. He will be fair and honest with you from the very beginning. Christopher never gave up the fight even when I wanted to give up he always pushed me and encouraged me told me to keep my head up.

Best of the best
In my case my lawyer got me an unbelievable plea deal after being offered years. My lawyer kept me very confident about my case after an offer of 20 years, I’m thankful for my lawyer he went thru the case as if he was fighting for his own life. After fighting numerous charges with the help of my lawyer I walked away with probation after facing four aggravated charges. My lawyer seen things I don’t believe most lawyers wouldn’t have, my lawyer (Chris Washington) is not only a lawyer Is more of people’s person. He knew what I was going thru wasn’t easy at all, but with out a worry in his body he made sure attempted murder two drive by shootings wasn’t the end for me. I fought for a year but as we went back and forth court date after court date, things only got better wit an attorney like Mr.Washington. I’m glad he was there to help me in this case, with out his hard work, dedication, humbleness, And ambitious attitude I don’t think it would have been impossible. I wouldn’t have rather trust no one else to help fight for my life like attorneys MR.Chris Washington

Chris Works For His Clients
I hired Attorney Christopher Washington after I had been given the run around by the insurance company after a car accident. He is a no nonsense kind of guy that gets results. He is honest, straight forward and up front with you. He doesn't make promises, he just gets results. I would definitely use him again if the need arises and will recommend him to others.

Vehicle Rear-Ended Accident
My wife, grandchild and I were injured in a vehicle rear-end accident while stopped at a red light. Our vehicle was also totaled by the other driver. Distressed, we contacted Attorney Washington. He and his assistant Tre provided professional, wholesome consultation/administration of our case resulting in rightful restitution, soothing our anxiety.

Two Thumbs Up
Chris is an excellent lawyer that I recommend highly to anyone seeking someone who is trustworthy and professional to handle their case. Although my legal situation was not as pressing as some of his other cases at the time, Chris never put me on the back burner. He treated me with respect and kept me updated throughout the entire process. If I ever find myself in another situation that requires an attorney, I will hire him again- without a doubt. Thanks again, Chris!
