Brief company history
Chris entered into private practice in 1984 following his return to the Central Coast. Since then, he has built his practice around focusing on the needs of the client rather than those of the firm by designing cost efficient billing policies based on the value of the services offered, upholding practices and procedures for those services which gives special attention to sustaining open and clear communication with clients, and limiting the practice to a few specialties in order to continue cultivating a deeper understanding of those areas of law.
