Chris is the best!
Chris got the job done in a satisfactory manner. We would have liked a little better result, but the job is done, and I can toss the last 4 years of papers in the burn pile!

Chris Brester
After my accident, Chris Brester helped me with filing a claim with the insurance company. He has always been prompt, informative and always easy to communicate with. Very professional and would highly recommend him to represent you.

Double the 5 Star Rating
I just want to say how wonderful it was to work with Christopher and Anna. I hired Christopher after a car accident left me with a head injury. Christopher and Anna completely took care of me. They went above and beyond. I didn't have to worry about anything once they took my case. They took over all the phone calls and paperwork that were causing me stress and preventing me from getting better. The compensation I received was more than I thought I would receive. He came through on everything he said he would. I feel that I am a pretty good judge of character, and even though I had a head injury, I felt I could trust Christopher as soon as I met him. I was right on! Hopefully, I will never need a lawyer again. If I do, I will definitely hire Christopher again. Him and Anna are simply the best! I have recommended several people to them and will continue to do so.

Great PIP attorney
I had Chris help my wife and I with settling a car accident. I found Chris to be very professional, courteous and punctual. He put me at ease every step of the way. Chris has a way of explaining the situation to you that is easy to understand, which makes it easy to make a decision on what your next move is. I would not hesitate to use Chris again in the future and I am highly recommending him to all my friends and clients I see in my office. Thank you Chris for all your help. Chad

Great Attorney!
I have used Christopher Brester many times for infraction tickets I have received and he has provided great outcomes. The most recent ticket he got completely dismissed. I also appreciate that he keeps me in the loop every step of the way.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Brester handled my mother wrongful death claim and got the conclusion that I wanted. He was very professional and knowledgably. He kept me updated throughout the course of the proceedings. I would highly recommend him for any legal matter.

Chris Saved My House
I was in an situation where I had made a mistake of not paying a couple of year of home owner's dues. The land management company escalated my dues with multiple late fees and I was soon needing to pay 3 times the amount I owed or I was going to lose my home. After hiring Chris, he responded quickly and immediately and he was able to get rid of most of those fees so that I could pay my balance and keep my home. The thing that I noticed about Chris is he really cared. He wasn't taking my case just to make to make a quick buck. He knows he has the skills to help people and he takes that responsibility very seriously. Hopefully I will never need a lawyer again but if I do, I won't think twice about hiring Chris.
