We found Christopher to be incredibly responsive, 100% reliable, totally trustworthy, completely straightforward, highly intelligent, and genuinely interested in helping us. We were particularly impressed because he helped us navigate some rather subtle conflicts throughout this issue to achieve a good outcome. More importantly–demonstrating that he had only our best interests in mind, rather than pressing us toward litigation (as many attorneys would have), where the fees would have undoubtedly been high–Christopher advocated a measured business solution where we avoided the time and costs associated with litigation. We feel this level of integrity and client-focus is very difficult to find and we are very grateful to Christopher for his skillful guidance.
