It was an absolute pleasure to work with Christian! My case drug on for nearly two years and I wanted to give in multiple times. Christian encouraged me to not give up and gave sound advice on how to keep proceeding. He was very clear with how my case was proceeding and forwarded all emails/correspondence from the opposing counsel to keep me well informed of what was going on. I most definitely would not have been able to do what he did on my own and I am forever grateful for his very professional help through a very trying time of life.

Excellent Service
Words fall short in expressing my gratitude for Christian. With great dignity and care, Christian worked to help me navigate a long and emotional parenting time matter. Throughout all the work on my case, Christian remained transparent, honest, and always gave attention to detail. I never wanted to have to take the road through the courts, unfortunately circumstances called for legal support and I am very grateful I chose Christian to represent me. I highly recommend Christian's services.

Fantastic Lawyer
I hired Christian to represent me in my rather messy divorce. Christian was always happy to walk me through all the best options and give me friendly legal advice for all of my questions. With Christian's legal expertise he put into place a Temporary Protective Order of Restraint to force my ex to keep our agreed upon parenting time of our minor child at a status quo until the case was settled. Christian then was able to negotiate the terms of a reasonable settlement agreement where I lost minimal assets, kept my parenting right, had half time parenting time and avoided having to go to trial. I would recommend Christian's services to anyone going through a divorce. He is a fantastic lawyer!

Would recommend to anyone!!
Christian is a fair, concise, smart and effective attorney. His guidance for my situation was spot on and resulted in a very favorable outcome for me. He is what I would call a "gentle giant" to the client, as his calming demeanor with his expertise in the law was appreciated. I would recommend Christian to anyone.
