    Christopher Kirker is brilliant, diligent, and passionate about helping people through what may be the most difficult times in their lives. I highly recommend Chris because he brings to the practice of law what everyone hopes to find in their legal advisors -- a wealth of knowledge and the follow through to ensure even the tiniest of details are handled appropriately.

  • Robert Carl Frazer

    I am so glad to work with Chris Kirker - he is an outstanding leader and role model in the profession, but most of all, I'm glad I won't ever have to face him in the courtroom. He is one of the strongest advocates for his clients I have ever come across.
