5/5

“I cannot say enough good things about Chris. He was extremely responsive to any communication I attempted. There were even times when I would call after hours, not at all expecting a response until the following day, and I’d get a call from him that evening.  My case in particular was extremely complex with a thousand moving parts. Chris not only stayed on top of every part, but even now, I know I could reach out and ask him a specific question and I know he could answer. He has an amazing gift. He could read a technical legal document and comment on it intelligently and get it back to me with such speed, I was always blown away. He can read at an extremely detailed level very quickly. I paid a lot of money per hour but got three times that value with how quickly Chris worked with no loss of quality. He is impressively intelligent!”

He is very professional. He keeps me calm when I get emotional. He’s always been a voice of reason and taken care of all sides of this for me, personally and professionally. I am a big fan of you all! You do exactly what I’ve asked of you all, and what more could I want than that!”

5/5

“I had a very complicated case, and for what I hired your firm to do, Christopher was excellent. He kept me in the loop as much as he could and sought my input on matters to avoid making assumptions about what I wanted or didn’t want done. I appreciate his efforts very much. Due to the complexities of my case, I am certain I will be contacting him again very very soon.”
