Client and Attorney Testimonies for Christopher…

“Chris Munley represented my dad at a very difficult time with compassion yet in the court room he was the fighter we needed. Chris helped my family during a time of incredible hardship when my dad was hit head on by 2 teenage girls. He took the time to answer all of our questions at any given time when we needed him. He treated my entire family with respect and helped us to get what we deserved. I would recommend Chris Munley to anyone in need of a reliable, determined, and trustworthy attorney.”

-A Car Accident Client

“Chris Munley promised results, and that’s what I got. He was very compassionate and he answered every question I had about my personal injury case. When we couldn’t settle with the insurance company out of court, he was a fighter in the courtroom. Needless to say, we won and I couldn’t be happier with the results.”

-Patrick, a Personal Injury Client

“You can put your trust into Chris Munley. A couple of years ago I got into a car crash and didn’t think I would recover financially. The insurance company had denied my claim and I thought that was that. But thanks to Mr. Munley, I got the money I needed from the insurance company and I was able to get on with my life. Thank you again, Mr. Munley.”

-A Car Accident Client

“I have worked with Chris, and Munley Law, for many years and recommend and endorse him highly. Chris, his firm, and his family, are extremely reputable and knowledgeable Personal Injury Attorneys with excellent character. Their civil litigation experience is exemplary and I will continue to utilize them as referral attorneys whenever possible.”
