David Hammerstad, Litigation Attorney on Jan 10, 2013 Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have worked with Chris on many felony criminal cases. He is the type of prosecutor that most defense lawyers enjoy negotiating with and hate to go to trial against because he knows the value of a case and is extremely skilled in the courtroom. As personable as Chris is, he is even more persuasive with a jury. I tried a case with Chris which was very challenging for the prosecution, in which he conducted a sensitive direct examination with a key child witness and, undeterred by a hung jury after the first trial, pursued the case to conviction upon retrial. It is my pleasure to endorse Chris.
