"BRILLIANT ATTORNEY! HIS EXPERIENCE AND SUCCESS RATE ARE UNPARALLELED If you are reading this review, look no further. You have truly found the best attorney you will ever meet. I have had the distinct privilege of working directly with Chris for many years in a corporate environment. He epitomizes everything you want in an attorney. He is experienced, competent and most importantly, effective. Chris has extensive working knowledge of employment and Labor laws, and regularly handled complex issues in both areas. He also regularly handled charges and filings with the NLRB and EEOC. Chris acted as primary inside counsel for all matters pertaining to Labor Relations (Company & Union), including bargaining, contract interpretation, policy development and administration, formal grievances, negotiating settlements and arbitration hearings. He is extremely effective in arbitration hearings (and occasionally entertaining) with a proven success rate. In addition to conducting research, preparing witnesses for testimony and providing counsel during arbitrations, Chris also prepared and presented formal post hearing summary briefs to AAA, while keeping all parties engaged and informed throughout the process. His experience includes a broad spectrum of legal matters pertaining to terminations cases, disability claims, FMLA, contract violations, etc. He is extremely organized, does his homework and is always well prepared. Chris is honest, trustworthy and instantly likable. I fully intend to retain his services on any future legal matters that may arise and highly recommend him to everyone."
