“Chris’ practice in the twin cities has focused on both civil and criminal law. He has represented people in various areas of criminal defense, plaintiff personal injury, insurance defense, general contract defense and real estate and commercial litigation. In addition, he has been an AA arbitrator for many years.


I also want to stress that this man has been interested in basically working through the problems that people have in a way that does not make the adversary system destructive in resolving problems people have in our courts.


…Because of his age and experience, I am confident that he will in a very short time become one of our most effective and competent district judges.”
