I would highly recommend Kris to other potential clients. He is knowledgable in many areas of the law, has great analytical skills, has the ability to negotiate multiple technical details, while at the same time seeing the big picture. His "recall" ability is amazing and he's a great writer and speaker.

I have worked with Kris over the last year on a complicated double tax situation. I found him to be the one person I can rely on in addressing the issue and moving it forward. When a company is up against a state run agency, it feels most frustrating and hopeless. But Kris has been steady and like a rock to hang on to.
Kirs has introduced us to how the system works and continues to work with us to get the issue looked at and, hopefully, resolved.
I also heard Kris speak at a business meeting and he is well spoken,
funny and well organized. People enjoyed listening to him and he was able to present his material so it could be understood.

I endorse this lawyer. Kris is very eloquent and one of the most talented lawyers I know. I had the pleasure of working with him while drafting and lobbying for HB 1432 (2011). Kris was an adept and eloquent expert who was also fun to be around.
