Authentic and kind When I made the decision to divorce, I hoped for professional help from someone who naturally offered trust and compassion. I had heard of Chris Larson's professional strengths through word of mouth. But, having been acquainted with him through my place of work, I also knew him to be a genuine, good person. I am beyond pleased with his services. Chris proved to be just what I hoped for and needed to help me navigate the divorce process in a way that alleviated my stress and anxiety. He is extremely knowledgeable, and able to impart any information in a way that is helpful and easy to understand. He prepares you for what to expect so that you feel competent and confident enough to deal with it. And most importantly, Chris truly cares. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered
Q. What happen if a driver is in a hit and run no damage is done to the car that was hit the car stopped but the other didn
A: Generally, if no damage is done and no one is injured, there's not much more to do in this circumstance. Vermont requires that drivers report crashes though if there is $3,000 worth of damage or someone is injured. Even if the damage is less than that, the at-fault driver's insurance should cover the damage to the car that was hit. If you are the owner, driver or a passenger in the car that was hit, you can make a claim against your own underinsured/uninsured motor vehicle insurance if you can't find the other driver.
Q. An old friend she owes me money been so far almost over 2yers And she still avoids and running away
A: You may have to sue your friend - small claims if its $5k or less is fairly simple. Keep those text messages and defiantly print them out when you go to the hearing along with all the other non-related texts between you.
Q. How do I convince an attorney to represent me in a complex case that requires faith?
A: You can file for a protective order (a relief from abuse order in family court) without a lawyer. The important thing is to write out an affidavit carefully that includes why you are in fear for your physical safety. Forms are available at the courthouse or at the judiciary website.
