Kris is very detailed and explain things extremely well. When I needed an attorney I was referred to him. Glad I did. Great Attorney!
Kris was appointed as PD for an indigent client with a history of severe trauma and serious, chronic mental and physical illness who was facing Assault 2 charges and a possible Deadly Weapon Enhancement (DWE). I consulted with Kris on this case as his client’s childhood CASA (Court-appointed special advocate) volunteer and mentor. Kris provided excellent counsel and consistently treated this client with dignity and respect. He communicated very clearly and always in a timely manner. He went the extra mile and consulted and corresponded with numerous experts to secure the best outcome possible. He successfully negotiated with the prosecution not to pursue the DWE. Kris has worked hard at each stage to do as much as possible for this client, and I recommend him highly.
