I highly endorse this lawyer. Chris is a very knowledgeable and effective advocate. Chris was the best attorney. Everyone at Sunnen Law was kind, caring and always made me feel like I was their only client even though they are very busy. Mr. Sunnen made my journey through a horrible time for my children and myself at ease, he was on point with everything and when he told me not to worry about things, he was right. Thank you Mr. Sunnen and your fantastic team for taking care of me and my children. All of you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. When you hire Mr. Sunnen, you get Mr. Sunnen. Thank you, Isaiah and Family

Knowledge is power and that is exactly what you have on your side with Sunnen Law. Chris Sunnen helped me navigate through a few delicate situations. He put my mind at ease and was well prepared for all court hearings. His staff is professional, returns all correspondence and calls timely. I highly recommend Sunnen law and happy with my outcome. Most important and I have not found in an attorney is compassion, Chris Sunnen is an anomaly. Compassionate, dedicated and a true professional. Hats off to you to you and your staff.
