Client Testimonials


“[My attorney] has been way above my expectations. I’m completely happy with her. She is friendly and cordial.  Anything that goes over my head, she will break it down and explain it to me so she always makes me feel comfortable.”


“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!”


“[My attorney] is on top of it! She has my best interests at heart and gives me advice and allows me to make a decision. I’m really happy with [my attorney].”
