I hired Chris after consulting with two other attorneys. He appeared to be head and shoulders above more knowledgeable in navigating through the issues that a very contentious and bitter divorce case would encounter and proved it every step of the way. He was very professional, direct and to the...

Life without Chris would certainly be horrible. He saw through years of lies, corruption, manipulation and god-awful behaviors (and a lot of illegal activities from the ex). He broke through a flawed system and was able to prove not only my innocence but prove what is factually/mentally in best...

Chris Chimeri was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was he able to wrap up my divorce in a short period of time (my ex changed attorneys 6 times), but his calm and empathetic...

I retained Chris in October and an agreement was reached and papers signed in August. I received a very fair settlement that was definitely in my favor. We were thankfully able to settle and stay out of court which made the process pretty painless. I highly recommend Chris if you want someone who is...
