One of the best lawyers in dfw
I hired Chris last year for a personal injury case and could not be more happy. He was extremely professional, kind, and knowledgeable. He explained the process and helped step by step explaining every thing I had to do and it's importance. I couldn't recommend anyone else after the experience I had I will never use anyone else.
