Christopher is the best at what he does.
Christopher took the reigns in my case and explained everything to me. Being a novice at such things he lead me through every step. He was kind, available anytime and enlightening. I never would have gotten a fair settlement if i hadn't gone to him. I highly recommend Christopher to anyone.

HAPPY CLIENT
What can I say Mr. Trodden hands down is a great attorney. There were times I felt discouraged. He always said don’t worry I got it. I can’t thank him enough for making sure I got a fair deal and wouldn’t allow the opposition to get the upper hand. Salute to Mr. Trodden and his team.

Client
Excellent attorney. I received much help from Mr. Trodden, who was always available to personally answer my questions. He went to trial on my case and got a 100% disabilty award within a couple of years after retaining his services. I'll be receiving payments from the insurance company for the rest of my life in an amount close to what I was earning before my injury!

Christopher helped me settle my claim in a timely manner and stands up for what is right, rather than what is easy.

Trustworthy and extremely helpful!
I had a messy situation with my old job due to getting injured and their poor handling of the situation. A friend’s mom suggested I reach out to Trodden and I’m so glad I did. He made everything very easy for me and explained anything I didn’t quite understand. Trodden helped me to win this case against my old employers which I know I wouldn’t have gotten far without his help. Thank you so much for everything, Christopher!
