TMA complaint
Mr Sharp and his staff were excellent. They not only had the expertise to represent me in the best way possible but also were very kind and supportive. They explained the entire process in great detail and prepared me for each step. I would recommend Mr. Sharp without reservation.

Chris was easy going, friendly and a pleasure to work with. I felt he was a friend as well as an exceptional attorney who cared deeply for me and helped me choose the best approach to represent me before the boards. I am grateful and well pleased that I chose Chris as he was there every step of he way via text, phone and fax making sure no stone unturned and my case was logistically sound. He comforted me spiritually and emotionally through the litigation process and went beyond the call of duty through the pandemic, using his expertise to represent me with an excellent Power Point presentation. My cased was dismissed, and again, I thank Chris for this as he knew exactly which approach was best in defending me through his many years of experience. Beyond a shadow of doubt, I highly recommend Chris to represent you as your attorney.

Masterful!
I was assigned to Mr. Chris Sharp by my insurance company in a matter with my professional licensing board. Without a doubt, this was the most difficult thing I have ever experienced due to many factors. Yet, the experience with Mr. Sharp was beyond anything I could have expected. He navigated the journey with tremendous professionalism, skill and continuous and constant feedback. In the first few months, he and his staff excelled at staying one step ahead of the case and preparing me for what was to come with ample time and reassurances. There was always a difficult but on-target road-map outlining what the next step would be. When the ultimate date of the Informal Settlement Conference arrived, Mr. Sharp had carefully and gently prepared above and beyond for the events of that morning. The event of the settlement conference requires an extremely skillful litigator that can respond to the flow and react to the constantly shifting environment. and, this is Mr. Sharp's GREATEST strength. He was able to respond to this tremendously shifting dynamic masterfully. He can think on his feet and is extremely skilled at reading and responding to human behavior in a way that will help resolve the legal issues. Our case was thankfully dismissed. I am certain and without a doubt as a result of his tremendous preparation and incredible skill in reading and responding to the challenging individuals involved in our particular case. He is highly respected within his area of expertise and give his heart and soul wholeheartedly to his clients and the case. You would be extremely lucky to have Mr. Sharp represent you.

Mr. C. Sharp
Aside from his superior expertise in his specialty, Mr. C. Sharp is a caring person and is fully interested in his cases as well as his clients. He updates frequently by phone, fax or e-mail, and interacts not only as a lawyer but also as a friend. I would highly recommend Mr. C. Sharp to anybody who needs his services.
