I was referred to Chris Hanslik by a friend of mine, who was a partner at one of the larger law firms in Houston. My friend held him in high esteem and after working with Chris for a number of months, I understood why. Chris is one of those rare individuals who, though very detail-oriented, doesn't lose sight of the forest for the trees. My case was a very difficult case. Chris was quickly able to dissect it and present it in a way that anyone could easily understand. To do this took thoroughness, insightfulness and finesse, and Chris demonstrated all of the above. During the process of the case, I found Chris to be a very bright and capable attorney, who exercised excellent judgment and never lost sight of reality. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Larry Wilson has represented my company in a wide variety of business law matters. What makes Larry so valuable is that in addition to bringing a keen and broad legal mind, he is uniquely understanding and aware of the business consequences of legal issues and actions. This perspective and judgement is extremely helpful in finding the best overall solution to the problem.

Chairman and CEO
Legal counsel, the saying goes, promises process, but not product. My experiences with BoyarMiller, however, confirm to me they are product-orientated. They are not oriented to the process of papering the deal. It’s the deal, stupid. That operating premise distinguishes BoyarMiller. They are true counsel that seeks best in breed lawyers to paper the deal only after BoyarMiller has first come to understand the product.
Chairman and President
I look for outside counsel who are not only skilled trial attorneys and effective mediators, but also have business savvy and instill a sense of trust. I have worked with BoyarMiller for over a year and they check all the boxes. As a manufacturing company with distribution around the world, we frequently face complex disputes and claims that potentially have significant impact to the company. Chris Hanslik and his excellent colleagues, Andrew Pearce and Chris James, have taken the time to fully understand our business as well as the industry in which we compete. I have found them to be nimble and able to devote the resources needed to get the job done in a timely fashion. They have been able to distill complex litigation to the essential issues and provided clarity of thought in their analysis of the merits of the cases and their potential impact on the company. It is this combination of trial skills and business acumen that separates them from other firms. I highly recommend the team at BoyarMiller.

Larry's experience helped protect our company from many situations we had frankly never considered.
