When Life Gets Legal SM
Christopher D. Pierson
"In a legal dispute, people are often confused about their options. I've handled hundreds of cases over the course of my career and am familiar with everything from settlement negotiations to depositions to mediation to jury trials. My long experience with both plaintiffs and defendants means I can anticipate outcomes and strategize effectively from both sides of a situation. I take pride in guiding people toward resolutions they can feel good about."
Chris is an experienced trial attorney who has successfully tried numerous cases to verdict in courts across Massachusetts.
