Excellent for years!
Chris Tilman and his office staff have handled more than one case for me over the years and have been outstanding! They were in touch with me almost daily and kept me informed of everything happening with my case(s). I have recommended Mr. Tilman on many occasions and he has handled cases for four of my friends that I referred. The personal service and encouragement I received have been invaluable. My thanks to the entire office!

Got my divorce done
I was told by several lawyers, both in Jamaica and in the U.S., that I could not get divorced in the U.S. because I married a Jamaican National in Jamaica. Tell it to Chris. He had me divorced less than 2 months. Talking about quick service. Not too expensive either. Go Chris.

MR. TILMAN IS AN HONEST ATTORNEY
MR. TILMAN HANDLED A CAR ACCIDENT FOR ME IN 1993 THEN IN MY DIVORCE AND BANKRUPTCY IN 1997..IT IS NOW 2010 AND IF ANYONE SAYS "THEY NEED A GREAT ATTORNEY" THE FIRST 3 WORDS OUT OF MY MOUTH ARE "ATTORNEY CHRISTOPHER TILMAN". (OH YEAH, I JUST GOT A SPEEDING TICKET 3 MONTHS AGO.) I'VE NOTICED I DON'T SEE HIM ON T.V. BUT WHEN I DRIVE PASS HIS LAW OFFICE THERE SEEMS TO BE STEADY BUSINESS. SO I'M GUESSING HE'S A "WORD OF MOUTH BUSINESS." THOSE ARE THE BEST. THE LADIES IN THE OFFICE ARE VERY FRIENDLY ALSO...I THANK GOD FOR ALL OF THEM!
