When the economy crashed, one of my restaurants went under. My business partner and I were sued by our landlord on personal guarantees, for over a million dollars. A few months prior to trial, Chris took the case over from other attorneys. She got up to speed quickly and re-focused our strategy, eliminating certain counterclaims and issues to cut expense and maximize our chances of success. We went to trial and won. The landlord’s claim was dismissed and we got a substantial judgment in our favor, including attorneys’ fees. Chris gave us expert counsel and was really great in trial."
I have known Chris Farias for many years. We worked together as lawyers several years ago and continue to consult with each other on our cases. Without doubt, Chris is a highly competent, tenacious advocate for her clients and a smart and creative lawyer. She can be trusted to provide frank and honest advice and to pursue and protect her clients' interests with zeal and compassion. If I needed a lawyer I would not hesitate to retain her to represent me."
Chris was our go to attorney for all kinds of employment advice. She provided proactive advice on proper practices to minimize risks of claims and losses. Chris also handled our employment litigation, including a large case defending us against claims by an executive level employee. Her advice and strategy were practical and firm, leading to a positive outcome. I also really appreciated her straightforward approach and her sense of humor - working with Chris is just plain fun! I highly recommend her to anyone.”
Chris is a great combination of strategist and pragmatist. She is diligent and professional. Although she was my adversary, she was a wonderful challenge! I have since referred her clients who have been extremely pleased with her."
Both personable and professional, Chris has provided me with expert counsel across several subject matters... all to great results. Highly recommended."
Chris is a sage advisor and a powerful advocate. It was great to have her in my corner to help navigate an outcome that greatly exceeded my expectations.”
Super lawyer. Extremely smart and hard-working."
Chris is a professional and dedicated attorney. Our litigation and trial took years and she maintained her dedication to me and my case throughout. She had other trials going at the same time but has such amazing time management skills that I didn’t notice. She maintained the highest level of integrity throughout the entire process. Don’t let that smile of hers fool you - she can really bring it when it’s appropriate! I’ve not seen someone fight and stand up for something the way she did. She is truly one of the best and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
