He is very knowledgable about the finanical industry and how they work legally, which very much helped me and my legal initiative successful. Chris is straight-forward and doesn't mess around. I was very please with his professionalism and the outcome of my case, and would recommend him to anyone that is pursuing action against any company in the financial services industry. Greg
Chris displayed extreme professionalism. His dedication, research, and concern for his clients pocket book was displayed to the fullest when Chris tried my case. His diligence and perserverance were rewarded when we won our case. I have reccommended Chris to numerous friends who have concurred with my positive assessment. Jay
Chris became my lawyer for a FINRA Arbitration case in 2008. He listened to my complaint, filed notice soon after and engaged an expert witness. We discussed mediation, found it to be agreeable and approached the defendant who at first agreed and at the last minute reneged. At all times Chris kept me informed of the process, costs and developments. Andrew
