Client Comments

"Chris is an outstanding litigator and appellate practitioner in the fields of ethics and professional responsibility law. From my experience, I can state unequivocally that when he walks into a courtroom, he is as well prepared, articulate, and of sound judgment in the case at hand as anyone I have known in my nearly 40 years of practice. Chris also provides great service to our profession by giving liberally of his time and energy to participate in and conduct seminars of great interest to our local bar. I would recommend Chris most highly."
