Client Review from Deborah

What Our Clients Say

Deborah was charged with theft in Delaware County. She felt that the charges were unjustified. I explained to the attorneys for the Commonwealth that a theft had not occurred, but the county continued to prosecute her for theft. The Assistant District Attorney on the case offered to drop one of the charges, but still wanted Deborah to plead guilty to a remaining theft charge, which she was unwilling to do.

I filed a Motion to Quash, and wrote a lengthy brief for the judge, explaining why this case must be dismissed. The judge agreed with me, and all charges against Deborah were dismissed. Below is a letter from Deborah expressing her impressions of how I handled her case.

Dear Chris,

From the moment I hired you to represent me, I knew I had chosen the right attorney. The first thing I remember you saying to me was, "Stop worrying and let me do the worrying for you". You told me to call you at any time, day or night, whether I had-a question or a point to make, or if I just needed a little reassurance. So many times, I did just that. I was scared and needed to have you remind me again and again that it would all work out. Not only did I get the reassurance I needed, but you treated me like I was equally as important to you as all of your other clients. If you did not answer the phone right away, you always got back to me the same day. Never once did you leave me hanging. I felt that you were not only doing your job, but that you were in my corner every step of the way.

I learned not only that you love the law, but that you care about making your clients feel at ease and that they are worthwhile human beings who are not alone. You listened to me cry. You comforted me. You put me at ease and fought for me as if I were your top priority. You did not simply present my case. You spent hours upon hours, compiling case law after case law in order to make sure that we walked into that courtroom fully prepared for anything that might be thrown our way. You could have won this case by simply presenting the obvious; that this was not a criminal matter, but you went way above and beyond that and came ready with a mountain of ammunition. You gave a compelling speech, which lasted longer than forty five minutes. You showed in that courtroom that you were not only well versed in the law, but that you were ready and willing to fight to see it upheld.

You did not let me back down and accept any plea bargains. You would only allow me to accept what was rightfully mine; a full dismissal of all charges. You believed in me and made me believe in myself. You taught me to fight and stick it out to the end when I'm in the right. You made me hold my head up high.

It is not the fact that you won this case for me, but rather the way that you won it. You went well above and beyond anything I had hoped for in the way you fought for me and made me feel about myself. I am grateful that my case was won, but even more grateful to have met a man who cares about his career and his clients the way you do.

Thank you, Chris, from the bottom of my heart.
