Our Clients Say
I was arrested for Assault 4, Domestic Violence charge in July of 2021. I contacted Kris and while he was adamant that he could not see the future he explained what to expect and what he could do for me. The prosecutor made an offer for reducing the charge to Disturbing the Peace with bench probation and a small fine. I hinted to Kris that this would allow me to keep my rights to firearms and that I would consider it and Kris told me that he was hoping to get a dismissal of all charges. After a couple of phone calls to the prosecutor, this was the result. Kris was direct and to the point in any communications I had with him and he didn’t make any false promises. If you want a straight shooter who gets results, call Kris. He did it for a flat rate that was fair and I could not have asked for more.
I was charged with a DUI in Woodland and the prosecutor was asking for 30 days jail. I hired Kris and they dismissed my charge in one court appearance. Kris was very easy to talk to and gave me honest advice from the beginning. I highly recommend him.
Kris was the only attorney who knew what he was talking about when it comes to firearms restoration. I was convicted of a second degree assault and he actually got my gun rights back!
The process was quick and easy. Kris had all the paperwork ready for me to sign ready when I met him and I didn't have to show up to court. Kris even made sure that all agencies received the courts order afterwards.
I highly recommended Kris for DUI representation. He is extremely knowledgeable, communicative and easy to reach with both the simplest and complex case/law questions. He works hard to explore all avenues in reaching deals for his clients.
Kris was great. He got my DUI charged dismissed entirely. What else can I say?
