Chris was exceptional, to say the least. He was personable, kind and able give his honest opinion without sounding too harsh or superficially nice. Before getting to know my case, Chris made getting to know me as a person his first priority, which I appreciated. He had the best outcome in mind for my entire family, especially the long term interests of my children— but made it clear that at the end of the day, he was ultimately on my side. And as for the pre-agreed pricing approach— I had no idea what to expect, but it turned out to be an added bonus that saved me stress and money. I took a leap of faith and put my trust in Chris— and I’m so glad I did.
Working with Chris was great! He’s personable, competent, and made everything so, so easy. I came to Chris for a pre-nuptial agreement, which was more of a celebratory process—Chris genuinely shared my joy, and it made all the difference. He was extremely thorough in translating the legal jargon so that I understood everything that was going on. Chris was great about giving and explaining every option—both the pros and the cons— and gave his opinion, but never pushed. I loved the pre-agreed pricing approach that he gave me— I knew exactly what to expect at the end of this process, which was helpful since there was a wedding in the works, too. All in all, Chris was a great lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone I know.
My experience working with Chris was fantastic. He was there for me through the entirety of the divorce and I could reach him whenever I needed him. He helped me to fully understand everything that goes into the process of something like this and during times when I needed extra help, Chris was there for me and gave me sound advice. I cannot express how helpful his personal attention and excellent assistance was to me. And his pre-approved pricing plan was just icing on the cake! His pricing provided clarity and made my time of need hassle-free. In a situation where court fees can get out of hand, his stability was refreshing. I knew exactly what to expect with him. And that reliability made all the difference.
I have been Chris’s client before he started his own firm. I reached out to him again because my current case was related to my previous. Chris reviewed my cases thoroughly, both previous and current, and researched carefully to find the best solution for me. The process was seamless. Chris was courteous and friendly, was always willing to do more research upon my request, and gave me helpful advice and guidance. He never pressured me into any decision. I found Chris’ pre-agreed pricing approach fair and uncomplicated. It put my mind at ease knowing that I could correspond with Chris whenever I needed him without feeling as if a clock was running, especially since my case ended up taking longer than expected. Chris respected my thoughts and opinions which shows that he truly cares about his clients’ well being.
Chris was always in my corner. Working with him was a collaborative process, where he took the time to sit down, actually listen to my situation, and understand what I wanted to accomplish. He was great about contacting me regularly and keeping me up to date with any new information that arose. He was excellent about knowing what I wanted—when it came to my child custody case, I wanted advice from the rest of my family members because I value their opinion. Chris was intent on primarily listening to me and making sure my family members didn’t overpower me. The pre-agreed pricing approach to me, was genius. A set price while getting the job done made things so much easier. We thought that our case would take longer, but since it was quicker than anticipated, Chris even lowered my pre-agreed price. If there’s anything I love more than the pre-agreed pricing approach, it’s the fact that Chris lowered it!
