“HE’S A BAD MAN, when it comes to that court room. I had a very tough case which would had made me guilty from he say, she say. But the evidence just wasn’t there. Chris worked hard from the time I contacted him until my verdict day to stress the issue of reasonable doubt. He did all that along with having a new born son at home which took away from his sleep. On March 15th, 2018 I was found NOT GUILTY of 2 felonies and 1 misdemeanor.”
