Introduction: The practice of law, at its heart, is about protecting people and solving problems. If your initial consultation with an attorney, even over the phone, doesn't leave you feeling better about your situation – you need another attorney. You should have total confidence that your attorney will guide you to the best and quickest solution possible. Anything less is unacceptable. This practice was started to help people prepare for the future, protect their family, or establish, grow and protect their business. I am a Husband, Father, and Christian. My family and I reside in Northern Virginia with my parents less than a mile away. I like to help solve problems and make our community a better place for everyone. I am a member of the Virginia, California, and District of Columbia Bar Associations. If you have a legal issue; we can discuss your challenges and I can help you navigate the road ahead.

Christopher Hanks helped me create a Will for my mother. He was wonderful to work with and answered all my questions. I highly recommend if you need a will or power of attorney created and explained.

Chris is a very caring, compassionate, and competent attorney. I worked with him on a guardianship case. He demonstrated attention to detail, deep understanding of the law, processes, and procedures, and an ability to maintain great "desk-side" manner. Thanks to his caring consultation and wealth of knowledge, I felt guided and empowered to manage what I needed to take care of.

As a care-giver, it is always a great relief when you find someone you can trust to be on your side. When it comes to dealing with difficult circumstances and sensitive cases, Chris is who I would want at my side every time.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    No one pricing structure works for every client - your need is unique to you, and your pricing will be as well. I do not take your trust lightly, and I do not take your money lightly either - no nickel and dime pricing and no hidden fees. When every possible, I prefer a flat-fee arrangement.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We begin with a phone call, you need to know me, and I need to understand your problem. As I always say, my job is to solve problems - if you don't feel better after our call - if you don't feel like you are closer to a solution - then I am not the right attorney for you. When we work together, I believe that communication is vital. I use a secure system that will give you access to see the latest updates on your case - messages, documents, billing, time spent, all without having to search through emails. You will never wonder where we stand or what is going on - you will KNOW.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I watched my parents struggle with helping my grandparents as they aged and struggle with the estate after they passed. These issues are complicated, and the face people at especially difficult times. I want to help people and this allows me to do that.
