Christopher Forrest has taken EXCELLENT care of my legal needs and I would refer anyone to him and have already done so.
Mr. Forrest has saved me from final judgment in foreclosure, as of this writing 26 months ( Jan, 2011 ). His attention to detail is excellent. The bank and their attorneys trying to foreclose have not been able to put together the required legal paperwork to execute a final judgment. I trust Mr. Forrest to make sure that they have "ALL" the required paperwork before they can proceed with the foreclosure process.

A tenacious attorney who gets the job done beyond the call of duty.
While trying to resolve a foreclosure issue, Christopher Forrest came across some blatantly questionable activities on the part of a title clearing mill. His persistence and tenacity unraveled one of the most fraudulent scheme ever seen that literally forced the process forward through the use of falsely ratified documents. His legal experience and his detailed investigation exposed the scam. Christopher Forrest is not only experienced but his dedication and tenacity produces results, making him a valuable asset for any clients facing legal battles.

Highly Recommend Atty Forrest Law Firm
I am highly recommending Attorney Christopher Forrest. His exemplary service in a high trust attorney-client environment, thorough knowledge of my case and the law as it applies as well as professional manner has been a great experience. Courts and lawsuits are not particularly pleasant, however, because of the Christopher Forrest Law Firm, I was able to confidently proceed and maintain peace of mind during my case. Having previously worked in the legal field, I had complete confidence and experienced very high quality and attentive legal representation.

"For homeowners is Sarastota / Bradenton area Chris Forrest is a lawyer who should be on their short list. Foreclosure lawyers in the know, recognize Mr. Forrest for taking some outstandingfvideo depositions of robo-signers and putting them on the web. Mr. Forrest's YouTube videos so infuriated several lenders that they sued to take the video deposition off YouTube. The videos were cross posted so many times that even after Mr. Forrest took his video down.... other YouTube versions are still up. See one of them at this link http://www.creditwritedowns.com/2010/11/videos-depositions-of-alleged-robo-signers-nationwide-title-clearing.html As one of the few foreclosure lawyers who take depositions, I know that it takes time, money, and planning to take depositions in foreclosure cases. Most lawyers to not take this important step in foreclosure cases. Chris spent extra money to video the deposition and extra time to post it online. This helped other lawyers and home owners."
