I highly recommend Mr. Hoey.   Chris is an awesome attorney, along with his wonderful staff. Chris represented my autistic son with such professionalism, patience, compassion and thoughtfulness. He is a trustworthy lawyer in which I have complete confidence. Chris never backed down from any challenge.  My son loved him; he was so sensitive to my son’s emotional needs, as well as others. I appreciate his analytical skills, determination and courage. It was a pleasure working with him and getting to know him and his outstanding staff. They really made us feel like family, diligently representing us.

Chris, I am still in shock that it is over.  I am emotionally drained and will need some time to digest it all, but now I can begin to find some closure. You’re a phenomenal attorney.  I truly appreciate all you have done for our family.
