Excellent Attorney!
Christopher is an excellent attorney, and I would highly reccomend him. He is a good listener, extremely knowledgeable, and helped me through an incredibly difficult and complicated divorce. He was very understanding and supportive, as he guided me through my emotional divorce. He was honest, and extremely diligent to achieve the best possible outcome for my case. I could not be happier with my experience of working with him.

Christopher COOK Review
Christopher has been a tremendous resource for me as well as someone who sincerely cares about the well being of his clients. A court case or appearance is a scary endeavor. However working with Chris has made the process easy to understand and he has helped me to pick and choose my battles.

Carpenter Child Support Case
Chris did an excellent job with my case. He was extremely thorough and responsive. His e-mails and communication where very clear with step by step instructions. He also did a great job in court. I would recommend Chris. I am fairly new to working with lawyers in family law, Chris was very patient and helpful and explaining the process and what I needed to do.

Case 12DR864
Christopher handled my messy and long drawn out divorce case. I came to Christopher a disorganized mess of paperwork, inaccurate information and a ton of questions. Christopher was excellent, accurate, dependable and compassionate to me while handling my case. Christopher was able to juggle my case, and many others, while being a true professional at all times regardless how crazy things got. He was always polite, courteous, thoughtful, kind when ever I spoke with him either in person or by phone. The instructions and information he supplied me with was necessary, accurate, detailed, honest and sometimes painful for me to deal with. Christopher showed a great deal amount of patience with me throughout my case. I truly appreciated him for that. During my case, it was Christopher who was my rock, the equalizer and my stability. I knew that If there was something that needed my immediate attention, Christopher would keep me on track and on task. Christopher never sugar coated his "best guesses" on the outcome of my case. He was always honest and I knew pretty much what to expect and where I stood. He was compassionate when he had to break bad news to me. He would usually finds something positive to say along with the negative. This sincerity helped me get through the ups and downs of this process of more than a year. I truly had one of the best legal teams representing me because, Christopher was part of it. He kept everyone updated and on the same page at the same time. This helped me to understand what was happening in my case. Thank you Christopher.
