I have a fairly straight forward case. I just need a lawyer to file the paperwork for me. On two occasions I was told by the receptionist that she would call me back. That didn't happen. I had to call the firm. On my second consultation, I had to wait 30 minutes past my scheduled appointment. Once I actually get ahold of someone the interactions are quick and accurate so I can't complain about the actual service rendered. It's the waiting and phone calls which aren't being returned that has me frustrated.

I hired originally Chris to represent me in a falsified restraining order case. Chris stopped the silver bullet not once, but twice.
As a trial lawyer he stood in front of the judge and actually argued my case. When an objection was overruled, he had no problem objecting again for different reasons. He is passionate about children... and went out of his way to minimize the trauma that the courtroom often causes in young children.
Following the restraining orders I hired him for custody, as my ex-wife continued to withhold visitation from me. The result is that I obtained sole custody as a result of my ex-wife's actions.
It literally says in the court order that one reason I received sole custody is due to parental alienation.

Christopher is an excellent lawyer in Las Cruces. He has both criminal and civil experience and has tried cases in both areas which is increasingly rare. I would recommend him to any prospective client in Southern New Mexico and the surrounding area.
