What Our Clients Have To Say

I can’t say enough about how professional & helpful Chris Layton was during my personal injury suit after my auto accident. He covered everything in layman’s terms & was extremely helpful with all of my questions, issues, etc. I’ve recommended him to a few friends & they’ve all been happy with his services!!

Derek Blackmon

Knowing little of the world and believing all stereotypes, I was hesitant to hire another egotistical, hot shot lawyer who wanted my money. However, a friend insisted on giving Chris Layton a call and expecting the same blasé attitude and service, I was pleasantly surprised. Right from our initial consultation, Mr. Layton was attentive and courteous but most importantly, he actually seemed to care. It was almost disarming how thoughtful he was and after working with him, I’m convinced that he genuinely cares. I’m probably a stranger on the internet but let me be a friend and recommend Mr. Layton’s legal services.

Sy Y.

It was a great experience working with Chris. Very patient with all my questions. Highly recommend.

Shannon V.

I had a particularly confusing issue with a bank and Chris used his expertise to navigate to a successful conclusion. I have used Chris several times and will continue to do so. I have also recommended Chris to others.

Dennis Marsoun

Chris Layton was extremely helpful and informative. He always responded quickly to my emails and calls whenever I had questions. I would recommend him highly to anyone.

Heather Cameron

Not only was Chris easy to talk to and a super cool guy, but he really knows his stuff! Really trustworthy guy and made dealing with my case easy and quick. I feel confident in recommending him to everyone I know, and even people I don’t. Best lawyer hands down!

Ryan Van Genderen

Mr. Layton is extremely talented, resourceful, and effective. His responsive and understanding manner made him easy to talk to and work with. I had a difficult legal matter and was extremely frustrated to approach dealing with it or discussing it, but he put my mind at ease, provided amazing advice, and solved my issue quickly. I have never had such stellar assistance from a lawyer who is competent and kind.

Blayr Nias

Since I have known Chris all his life, he has always strived to be the best in whatever he has accomplished. I called him to ask him a question on Wills and Trust and he was so helpful with guiding me in the right direction. He doesn’t even practice in my state but took the time I needed to ease my concerns. As a lawyer I wish he was licensed in Delaware because Chris would be my number one choice. His knowledge and kindness can not be matched by another.

Justin Gladnick

Chris is the greatest! He took my phone call both of the first two times I called and gave me very helpful information to get started. He made me feel comfortable and important, in that he expressed genuine concern for my situation and gave me prompt, courteous attention. I would recommend him for anyone I know, including family and friends.
