Exceptionally Excellent Attorney
Christopher and his associates resolved my legal issues very smoothly and quickly. I was incredibly impressed with the way they treated me from the beginning with genuine care and respect. Chris spent hours listening to my case on the consultation appointment, which I found that was rare and almost impossible if I was with other attorneys I consulted the same case with. Not only that he came up with an intelligent resolution for my legal case even before I hired him. The other firm I consulted with asked me to give them 5000$ before they even could figure out how to solve my legal issues. Chris is a kind hearted and very knowledgeable about legal matters. I’m greatful for his legal counsel and very worry-free when I choose him to take care of all my legal matters in the future. I recommend his firm to everyone I know is dealing with legal issues
Christopher Markelz – Excellent Attorney
2 – Bench warrants for failure to appear – Dismissed!
2 – Driving on Suspended License for DUI – Dismissed!
1 – Probation Violation – Dismissed!
Sunday evening I was referred to Christopher and urged to call him now (it was after 7:30 PM). Christopher returned my call and I explained to Christopher my brothers Saturday evening arrest and legal charges provided by the Detention Center. My brothers arraignment was scheduled for 8:00 AM Monday morning. Christopher drove 50 miles to my brothers arraignment location and was able to get him released on his own recognizance vs. the $85,000,00 bail listed. The following week we are in court for my brothers hearing and Christopher got all infractions dismissed. That was it, no trial, no probation, everything gone like it never happened!
Christopher you are the BEST!
Intelligent, No-nonsense, and Understanding Attorney
We were facing a very serious tenant-landlord related situation regarding a unit we were renting from. After exhausting all self-employed options we were recommended to Christoper Markelz by the department of housing. The moment we spoke to Christopher, we immediately felt more confident about our situation. From the first day and during his initial free consultation Christopher was empathetic, unequivocal and completely transparent about what we would have to do and what needed to be done. He didn’t waste our time with what ifs or any fancy legal lingo or anything like that. He was concise in his statements and direct about how we would have to handle the situation. After speaking to him a second time we immediately retained him and he was diligent about moving forward with a resolve for our situation. Chris was quick to respond to inquiries and in following up with any updates as the situation progressed. All the while we sought his best legal advice and recommendations and the more immediately that we followed through the faster things were getting resolved.
Christopher Markelz is an incredibly intelligent and quick-witted attorney. He is no-nonsense and doesn’t dance around you in an effort to get more money out of you or to force you to obtain services that you don’t need. His transparency and honesty is extremely admirable and his ability to empathize with his clients makes him truly a one-of-a-kind attorney. After some time of struggling with our situation, Christopher was able to bring it to a complete and optimal resolution in a short amount of time. We were happy with our result and would most definitely seek Christopher in the future for any legal counsel.
We highly recommend Christopher for your legal needs and concerns. He is a bright, honest, sincere and understanding attorney who definitely has a good handle on the legal system and its intricate know-hows.
Chris was my divorce attorney, and he was excellent. I felt like I had a true advocate on my side. Chris achieved a fantastic end result for me, and his honesty throughout the entire process was refreshing. (I’ve had poor experiences with other attorneys). His staff (particularly Carolyn) were also top-notch.
An Excellent Attorney
Christopher Markelz was referred to me by someone who works at the Superior Court in Newport Beach. He agreed to represent me at a very reasonable cost and helped me win a judgment in my case in Superior court in Santa Ana. He was always good at communicating with me about my case and very professional with a high level of integrity.His staff was friendly and courteous. ( Thank you Carolyn for all your help and support… Hope I spelled your name correctly). Most attorneys would not have wanted to take my case on, as it was a small one, but for me, it was important to try and recover a rental deposit in the amount of $4,400.00.
Christopher Markelz helped me to do that and I am very grateful to him. I would hire him again without hesitation. I would also recommend him to anyone seeking an honest and trustworthy attorney. No doubt…a Five Star attorney in my book. Thank you.
Christopher Markelz – Excellent Lawyer!! Words cannot express our gratitude!
Chris is personal, he is honest, he is the wizard in law! Our situation has been going on for about 6 years and we had been devastated and lost.
For the past years, we had sleepless nights and countless worries days and nights. I had been having stress migraines almost daily due to the situation.
We went through 3 sets of law firms throughout the years. The past law firms had promised the great outcome, but instead this devastated situation continued for years. Those past law firms seemed nice and honest, but they were not able to achieve what we were promised after tons of fees billed paid. We used all our saving, all our loans, and all we had was just bills after bills.
After those firms were not able to help us with our case, we were simply lost in life. All we were able to do was pray to God for miracle until we met with Chris and Carolyn. Chris took his time listening and trying to understand our situation in an efficient manner and willingly took our case. Chris was a honest, caring, and reasonable person who used the power of law to protect what he needed to protect. It was the GOD sent that we ended up with Chris and Carolyn just a week before the set trial date.
Not only they took our case just before the trial date, they were attentive and were always there to listen to our needs. Chris and Carolyn were always available to our needs. They made sure we understood what they were doing and what they were going to do. They made sure we were comfortable with their decisions and plans. They also made sure we were not stressed about things we should not be stressed about.
Both Chris and Carolyn care about their clients and they did whatever they can to help us. That is what the real attorney should be doing and that is what they did for us. They are very personal, they want to know every details about the client’s situation and who they are, they want to know the client’s concerns and interests. They are not after your money. They are truly the God-sent-angles who know how to use the law to protect the ones in need!!!
We would recommend the law firm in a heart beat to anyone who are in need of someone with knowledge, kindness, honesty, and to win the case!
We appreciate everything Christopher Markelz did for us. Always with a possitive attitude making us feel comfortable.
Honest, Energetic Attorney
I retained Christopher Markelz to be my attorney in a Restraining Order hearing. Both he and his staff, Carolyn, immediately put me at ease as soon as I met them. All along the way, he and Carolyn made me feel reassured and confident that I was in good hands with a very capable and competent attorney whom I truly felt genuinely cared for me and would represent me well in court.
Christopher will return your phone calls and emails and answer your questions and he will provide knowledgeable and comforting reassurance for any concerns you may have. He explained things clearly to me and outlined the details of my case in a way that made sense, which gave me great comfort and confidence. Christopher is very energetic, a man of the highest moral character and he is passionate about working hard to fight for you.
It can be a scary thing to trust another person with serious matters in one’s life where your future may be affected. But I have found that trusting Christopher to represent me took the burden and pressure off of me while waiting for the hearing, and in court, Christopher did an excellent job in handling everything. He went more than the extra-mile to achieve the outcome that I had hoped for. I am so grateful!
I would highly recommend Christopher Markelz to anyone who is seeking a good, honest, competent attorney whom you can trust.
Set Aside Default
In February/March we were advised to contact an Attorney regarding a case we were so confused on that it brought tears to our eyes every time we received mail from the opposing attorney (s). After being referred to 3 attorneys and being declined by 2 we called Christopher Markelz office and spoke with Carolyn. Advised her of our situation and was given the opportunity to meet with them and discuss what we needed to do and ultimately wanted to do that same day. At that time we retained his services to help us remove our names from a Civil Case that we had thought we were no longer part of as of 2 years ago. He explained everything in detail to us and we understood better than ever what we were up against. He is extremely passionate about his work and more so about helping people through tough times. Every meeting with Chris was explained in detail what was happening, read over any new documents, explained our position and helped us to understand. Any time we needed to meet he was open to our availability being we lived in out of town (of course his schedule matters too lol). Chris worked hard on getting to remove our names and gave us advice towards resolving this matter. In the end we were dismissed from the case and a job well done. Chris’ hard work and dedication to being an attorney was a blessing to us legally. I have full faith in Chris and he will be HIGHLY recommended to all my friends and family for his services.
