Business insights...
I meet with Chris to discuss joint venture options. To start with he is very easy to converse with and I was instantly relaxed and confident I had found the right attorney. He was very insightful flushing out options I hadn't even considered. I'm grateful to Chris for sharing his insight and time with me.

Great call
Great first impression. I called Christopher to get his opinion on a landlord tenant problem that I have. First of all, he answered my call immediately and provided his insight without requesting me to schedule an appointment or charging any money. He gave me a few suggestions to follow on my own before I involving an attorney. In the event none of those work, he gave me a good perspective on potential next steps and costs associated. He seemed genuine and I felt he would put his customers interests first. If things do not improve quickly with my tenant I will consider hiring Christopher to help me out.

Exceptional Customer Service
I contacted the office of Christopher Greer and received a prompt response back in under an hour from Chris personally. As an individual seeking small business ownership, I had a ton of questions regarding startup and Chris was more than willing to take his time and answer them for me. He was extremely helpful and very patient. I did not feel rushed throughout our conversation and he offered me some very valuable information. He possesses a wealth of knowledge in the legal business field and I would highly recommend him for anyone seeking advice in this area. I will definitely be using Christopher Greer in the future!

Fantastic Lawyer
We found Chris through some internet research and contacted him about forming an LLC and he was able to put together all fo the necessary documents within a day of us contacting him. He later went on to review some service agreements with our clients and let us know there were some unnecessary clauses in there. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone starting a small business

Free advice was nice
I submitted a question to Christopher Scott Greer and several other attorneys, asking whether I should hire a lawyer to defend me in small claims court. Mr. Greer took the time to answer my question and told me that he didn't think I should spend the money on an attorney because it was a relatively minor matter involving a $2,000 dispute. I was already leaning toward not hiring an attorney (because I don't have the money to do so), and his answer put my mind at ease. When I filed my reply to the lawsuit, I learned that mediation is a required first step in the small claims court where the lawsuit was filed, which made me feel more confident that I should proceed without an attorney. Mr. Greer saved me the money I was considering spending on an attorney. I haven't had the mediation yet, but his answer helped me feel confident that I can handle my own defense in the case. I appreciate that Mr. Greer gave me his opinion, free of charge, about what I should do. If you have a legal problem, I would suggest consulting Mr. Greer -- he seems interested in more than simply making a buck.

Quick & Efficient!
Chris was able to help me get started on creating an LLC the day we spoke! He sent me the forms I needed to use, highlighted where I needed to sign, steps to follow once I received the response, next forms I was going to need to fill out, again highlighted with instructions. He made a stressful step in being a small business owner turn into a "you got this" moment!! I highly recommend Chis for his sense of urgency, approachability and efficiency!
