Chris Vs. Goliath and Chris won
I have known Mr. Canterbury for a long time. I have gone to him after a car accident where we received a sizable settlement and after a slip and fall that was not an easy case to argue. Somehow he managed to get it to mediation and we reached a settlement. I am grateful for his legal expertise and for all the effort he gives for his clients. Thanks Chris.

A person not a paycheck
My family and I had a wonderful experience with Kelley and Canterbury. From the first contact they were professional, personable and accommodating. They set up an appointment promptly and were already prepared for our first meeting. They were very aggressive with the other party, made sure compensation was fair and that we were comfortable with the outcome. They checked on us often and gave updates on a normal basis. I didn’t feel like just another paycheck with them. They treated us like real human beings with emotions and concerns. Micheala always took her time and made sure we understood what was going on. She was very precise and explanatory. She pulled no punches and didn’t sugar coat anything. They answered any and all questions and kept people off our backs. If you need representation, this should be your first and only stop. No one else in town will treat you as wonderfully or obtain as much as they will. I would recommend them 10 times over.
