I highly recommend Christopher as an dependable lawyer. Unfortunately he was not the first lawyer I had hired pertaining to my case. Having a case in CA and living on the east coast, it was important for me to find a lawyer that was dependable. Chris had cleared everything and explained clearly what was needed from me by the court. After completion, about a week later, Chris had contacted me again informing me that paperwork was not received from the court, something that had happened in the past as well. I promptly had them sent again and I am sure if Chris did not check up with me, I would have had to have done everything again. Something my previous lawyer failed to do. The follow up is enough for me to recommend his services over any others.

I found John McCann to be a professional and diligent attorney. He was easy to talk to and understanding of my personal situation. Not only did he take care of my situation better then I ever could have imagined but he did it on a flat affordable rate.

I have been working with Chris couple of years ago and I couldn't be happier. He was helping with all of the little details I didn't even know I needed. Hi was always friendly and ready to answer all of my questions. His attention to my case has allowed me to focus on what's important to me, healing and recovery. Thank you!

Got a DUI case while I was at home, the police knocked on my door and proceeded to give me a sobriety test on the spot. Took me in, and I was booked for the night. Luckily, I found Chris on findlaw and he was able to retract my DUI case and even set aside all the the bad records that usually will stick with you via DMV.
Chris was exactly the lawyer I needed. He helped me all the way through the case until the very end, and he was incredibly persistent in doing his very best to win both court and DMV hearing cases. I could not be any happier with the result. If you get in a DUI case, I highly suggest him as your lawyer as he will be your money's worth.

I hired Christopher McCann in April of 2016 based on evidence of his knowledge, skills, experience, and proven results after doing a great deal of research. He receives excellent reviews from former and current clients. He is respected by colleagues, including other attorneys and judges. He is a member of several professional organizations, working hard to stay current with changes to federal and state laws, including DUI laws. My experience with him and the results that he obtained for me exceeded my expectations. Because I did everything that we agreed upon to fulfill the requirements for alternative sentencing, he was able to resolve a second DUI case for me with the outcome being that I will pay approximately $220.00 in court costs. That is it.
I am in a career where my reputation is judged along with my skills. Upon receiving a 2nd DUI, I had a great deal to lose if my case was not handled well. At the same time, I am not in profession where wealth is the number one reward for a job well done. So, the cost for hiring a good attorney was a factor in deciding who to hire. I knew that defense for a second DUI was not going to be inexpensive, but I was not prepared for what some of the attorneys I spoke with wanted to charge me. In searching for a respected, proven attorney with experience handling second DUIs (or multiple DUIs) many of them quoted me fees ranging between $5500 to $9000 for the privilege of hiring them and that was only if the case did not go to trial. In several cases, the egos seemed as big as the fees I was being asked to pay...and I decided that was simply to be expected.
I first met to hire someone for a fee that would mean borrowing money. I arrived at the initial appointment to find my attorney not there and met a person without the same experience who was apparently going to handle my case. I politely declined to hire their services. I am so thankful for that event because it sent me to Chris McCann's door.
There I met an attorney who is also a person. He is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable without being arrogant about it. He is passionate about the law. Yet, also a caring man who works hard to get the best outcome for his clients. He charged me one flat fee to handle the DUI case and the DMV hearing. Other attorneys charged separately if they were asked to be involved with the DMV hearing. Many of them also did not charge a flat fee, meaning that what one could end up paying a somewhat unpredictable amount in the end.
As I said to Mr. McCann, he wins his cases, so if he is going to operate like others in his field...he really needs to start charging more. I very much doubt he will listen to me. He will charge what he believes is fair based on the details of each particular case and what work is needed for that case.
I have recommended Christopher J. McCann to everyone I know and will continue to do so. I consider him to be an exceptional attorney and an exceptional person, who violates all of those negative stereotypes about what lawyers are like. : )

I was referred to Chris by the CSUF legal clinic and was grateful they did. I wish I called him sooner, because once I called his recognition of the problem and advice on whether to get a lawyer or not was extremely helpful. He genuinely wanted to help. He really cared about my case and even wanted to talk to me after I had court to see how everything went. In a situation where there where so much uncertainty and anxiety, Chris really helped to calm my nerves and have done reassurance in what I was doing. Thanks Chris

I had a legal matter dating back 20 years in Orange County which required a local lawyer to address as I am permanently located overseas in Australia. I contacted virtually every lawyer listed in Orange County (on line) with a summary of my case. Most of the lawyers responded with complex, layered pricing – all of which were thousands of dollars for very basic initial clarification, mainly admin based.
Christopher McCann was the only lawyer whose first response was acknowledgement of the issues and what steps were required – not costs. Once we agreed on the first steps, he advised that they were very basic and essentially meant a visit to the local court house which attracted NO CHARGE since he provided free consultation. All the other lawyers’ fees were no less than $1500 for the exact same service. In the end, and to my benefit all that was required was a court certified document to close off the matter for which Christopher charged $25! This also put to rest 20 years of angst.
Throughout the whole process Christopher displayed empathy, honesty and integrity – I was floored when the cost was only $25. Given I was overseas there was an element of vulnerability and uncertainty which was clearly taken advantage of by many other law firms. Had I not have found Christopher, I would have paid thousands more for what was a very straight forward matter. I highly recommend Christopher McCann for any legal support, he is an effective and honest lawyer.

Chris McCann did an awesome job of handling the legal issues of one of my family members. He was very professional, and very thoroughly explained how he would be able to help. He also regularly communicated with us, and fortunately was able to facilitate a positive outcome. I HIGHLY recommend him to help you.
