Excellent Service
I retained Chris to handle a business litigation matter. Chris had a practical approach to handling the case and was more interested in doing what I thought was the best thing for my business rather than line his pockets. Chris kept me informed and was very responsive. I highly recommend Chris for any litigation matters,
