I was interduce to Mr. Lavorato from a very good dear friend of mine. I explain to Mr. Lavorato my situation a little over phone to him, he ask could I come into his office and meet with him. Just walking into his office gave me a relax feeling, I have a conversation with him and he stated that he would have to run this across the other members of the staff and will get back with me, and he did the same day. I was fighting this for four months and everyone kept on closing the door in my face as if I done something wrong. Mr.Lavorato said something to me that really set me at ease, he said (I don't like to see when someone do someone wrong) He never pointed that finger at me he just listen and took action. If I ever need an attorney again I will seek his advise and direction. He is the best.

A Truly Exceptional Attorney
I don’t know that I can accurately put into words the amount of gratitude and respect my husband and I have for Chris Lavorato, but I will do my best. After we were injured in a serious car wreck, we were referred to the law firm Howry, Breen & Herman. Everyone we worked with at the firm is wonderful, but Chris is truly exceptional. Not only is he a powerfully gifted attorney, but he is also a man of integrity and compassion. His communication with us from the very beginning was clear, concise, and honest. His word is his bond – if Chris said he was going to do it, he did it. This alone would have earned our respect, but then the final result of our case far exceeded our expectations. Chris worked hard for us to secure a settlement he thought was fair and just (it was evident he had gone way above and beyond in his preparation) and we could not have been more pleased. We are thankful beyond measure to have had the blessing of working with him and feel extremely confident that anyone else who does so will feel the same.

Best Lawyer Ever. Awesome person.
I am so thankful for an amazing, honest, caring, and talented person such as Chris and his ability as an attorney. He is so professional, and I’m just grateful that I am no longer being put in a bad or dangerous or abusive situation where I was being unfairly attacked, treated, and harassed in a professional environment ALL THANKS TO CHRIS intervening as my attorney.. There is laws against such behavior and Chris was able to stop ALL this bogus weird harassment toward me with his swift action. He removed the problems, stress, and worry this was causing me out of my life. I am utterly grateful. I was being made fun of for a disability and picked on. It’s awkward because in 2019 America I cannot believe such a chaotic situation occurred & I didn’t know how to handle it. I was recommended to Chris Lavorato , contacted his office and he was the real deal. I couldn’t have more respect for him. 10/10 rating and I think most people with a legitimate claim or personal injury will found out they hit the lottery with Chris as he is not only a good person but a good attorney.

Career Ending Injury
I was seriously injured on a layover as an Airline Pilot at a major hotel. Due to the strict medical guidelines for Airline Pilots I was not able to return to the cockpit as a Pilot. Mr Chris Lavorato handled my case from day one all the way to a most favorable settlement a few days before trial! Mr. Lavorato’s demeanor and tact was superb and he was able to accomplish many things I never dreamed possible. He became my case. My right hand man and he knew my case inside and out. His preparation and attention to detail was second to none. I feel blessed to have found Mr Chris Lavoroto and would strongly recommend him for your legal council.

A Passionate Voice for Justice
After an accident, I found it necessary to seek legal counsel. When Chris accepted my case he quickly assessed the insurance company was attempting to offer me an insufficient settlement and I'd also incurred significant liens for medical issues. Throughout my case, Chris consistently demonstrated integrity, perseverance, a solid grasp of current laws and a zealousness in his pursuit of justice. He worked to ensure I was granted a just and fair settlement and all medical liens were removed. As a military veteran who proudly served my country for over 25 years, I was pleased to find Chris to be a strong advocate for our armed forces (current and former). He's the attorney you need when you find yourself in a legal foxhole. I will never forget the care and concern Chris demonstrated while representing me. I proudly recommend him as legal counsel.

Top Notch
Mr. Lavorato just finished representing my organization in a complex and dynamic construction defect case. His professionalism and ability to pursue our case aggressively and efficiently resulted in a successful outcome that could not have been better. Chris was always available for counsel either in person, over the phone or via email. He took the time to patiently meet with all members of our organization who had concerns or questions regarding our case. His advice and direction was detailed and well thought out, always with our ultimate benefit in mind. His efficient and effective preparation ultimately achieved a hugely successful result for us without extensive overhead costs. Chris communicated with our Board of Directors in a manner of respect and dignity creating an understanding of trust and confidence hard to find in todays world. Highly Recommend...

Simply The Best
Everything a legal council should be. Chris gets results. After a MVA and stalling, and even more stalling by my own insurance company to pay for my medical expenses; Chris got the job done. Even given the legal atmosphere here in TX Chris got results. Chris is professional, personable, caring and results driven. Chris does what is right. Don't hesitate to consult him.
