“I am three years into a divorce and I am raising my children without any help from their father. Facing financial ruin, I was recommended to Christopher Carr by my family attorney. Chris looked at my current situation and made recommendations. I proceeded as he suggested with a very reasonable fee for his services and declared Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Chris handled all necessary documents and paperwork in regards to the bankruptcy. I don’t know what I would have done without his help. My children and I are more stable and are able to begin a new chapter of our lives thanks to him. Something I never thought I would be able to ever do. I have recommended Christopher Carr to my friends, and I will continue to do so. He is knowledgeable and professional and I am very grateful for all of the help that he gave to me and my family. Thank you Chris!!”

Christopher Carr’s Reviews – Coatesville, PA Attorney – I highly recommend Chris Carr without reservation Posted by Tom, August, 2014: I am pleased to recommend Chris Carr without reservation to serve in any legal context, corporate or individual. I was the Senior Vice President for Global Customer Services and Support for Sanchez Computer Associates, Inc. when Chris was our Corporate Counsel. During the 5 year period we worked together he assisted me with a wide variety of projects, needing legal oversight, including software maintenance and support, implementations, sales and support, contracts, and Service Level Agreements. He also supported me in developing agreements with mission critical vendors and partners.

  1. Chris is well versed in the vagaries of the IT field which positions him well to deliver a solid legal and business awareness to issues and opportunities. He is able to provide balanced recommendations to meet business requirements while at the same time never jeopardizing the overall corporate legal position. He is an excellent writer and is diplomatic in client relations. When I moved on from Sanchez I hired Chris on special projects for my new employer.
