Chris handled our unusual family law case with intelligence, needed flexibility, and legal expertise (which is not to be assumed for any lawyer). He showed real skill at legal argument, in briefs and on his feet in court. He also demonstrated the judgment regarding larger, non-legal issues to warrant our trust in his choices and recommendations for overall approach. I am convinced that if our case had not been reassigned to the worst, most lawless judge in King County Superior Court, we would have had a satisfactory solution. Fortunately, on appeal, the issues were well preserved so that success appears likely at the higher court, (a court of law), and we have Chris to thank for that.

I filed suit in federal court on behalf of a mentally ill client, and Mr. Carney took over the litigation. He was prepared, thorough and excellent in trial. I am an attorney myself, and know that I couldn't have half as good a job on this case as Mr. Carney did. I was extremely pleased with his representation and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Chris Carney fought hard for his clients when we worked together as public defenders and I am not surprised to see he is still an outstanding attorney, bringing his clients justice and providing strong reassurance to them in the most dificult times they face. I heartily endorse Chris.
