Hiring Chris let me focus on recovering from my accident
Chris Hill's professionalism, compassion, and patience let me focus on recovering from my injuries while he took care of the recalcitrant insurance companies. I was hit by a cargo van while biking to work. I was, like most would be, in shock. I also, like most, told myself I wouldn't need a lawyer despite my injuries and no fault for the accident. But insurance companies make their money by denying claims and coverage. I battled months of insurance company denials while struggling to get better. Walking into Chris Hill's office and handing over my case lifted a weight off my shoulders so I could focus on recovery. Chris and his team took care of the rest. Chris is communicative, taking the time to discuss my options and their potential up and down sides so that I could make informed decisions at each step. He made sure to find and incorporate relevant case law that protected my claim so I could be confident the insurance companies couldn't exploit any loopholes. Throughout the entire process, it was clear Chris genuinely cares about his clients. I'm incredibly grateful I was referred to Chris and wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in need of a personal injury attorney.

Good
I hired him on two occasions when I had two different car accidents, the other person deemed at fault. Once to fight my own insurance company to pay out on my uninsured motorist claim, once to fight the driver's insurance company. He did better for me than I could have done myself.

One sharp fellow
Chris is an excellent lawyer. His intelligence and education shines through when discussing intricate details of the law, but what is most remarkable is his ability to relay the information in an easy to understand and friendly manner. Chris made me feel like we were a team and helped turn a negative situation with difficult insurance adjusters into a very positive experience. Thanks Chris!
