What clients say about Evolution Divorce

“Chris was incredibly patient and answered all my questions, sometimes multiple times. He walked me through various scenarios of my case until I clearly understood all of my options and the potential outcomes. Chris was in constant communication guiding me through the entire process. Even after we reached the end, he continued to follow up making sure I was happy with the results. Evolution’s pricing structure was also a huge help. I knew exactly what to expect. I would definitely work with Chris again.”


“Chris was recommended to me because of his reputation and integrity. He is knowledgeable and easy to work with. He kept me focused on realistic outcomes and recommended a great mediator when I said I hoped to stay out of the courtroom. I like his pre-agreed pricing and clearly understood how it worked. Chris coached me through the entire process and lowered my anxiety. Chris and his team are terrific human beings.”

I normally begin my initial consultations with potential clients asking if they have specific questions they want answered or if they would rather I ask them some questions that will give me information on how best to help. The overwhelming majority reply with, “Go ahead and ask me questions. I really don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve never done this before.”
