    Chris is a well respected attorney in Montgomery County in all aspects of criminal law. But his special interest in and dedication to the children who find themselves in the legal system goes above and beyond. He does his best to protect and guide juveniles so he will be the last defense attorney they will ever need.

  • Kevin Harris

    Chris is a highly experienced and respected attorney. Being a former prosecutor, he has a wealth of knowledge as to how the prosecution works up their cases. Now being a seasoned defense attorney, he knows how to use that knowledge to prepare his client's cases. He is extremely smart and humble. He has the respect of all at the courthouse. He always has his client's best interest in mind. At times, I find myself picking his brain on complex legal issues. When it comes to representation, I recommend Chris with no hesitation.
