Chris has tried dozens of cases and has settled injury cases for his clients valuing several million dollars and is ready to utilize his experience and successes to benefit your case.

As a business owner himself, Chris Carpenter understands the issues and problems that can arise in the operation of a small business and therefore appreciates and understands the needs that small businesses have for the delivery of prompt, efficient and affordable legal services.

While the prompt and efficient resolution of legal issues and disputes is always one of our primary goals, we also have a reputation for being willing to take litigated matters to trial for resolution by a judge or jury as necessary, while maintaining a high level of professionalism and client satisfaction.
