Chris Ackermann exceeded my expectations for both of my car accident related cases. Not only was he extremely professional but also very personable & friendly. Chris would follow up with me often to make sure everything was going smoothly. Not to mention he went above & beyond & was able to win a very impossible case for me. I have referred a few friends of mine to Chris because his work is honest & he goes the extra mile for his clients. I'm very thankful for the times I've had to work with him. I wouldn't go to anyone else!
Natalie Rodriguez
