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.

Matt and his team represented us in a way that I always felt very confident that I was getting excellent legal counsel as well as outstanding analysis of our strategy and options. Matt Veech and his team always listened to me and took my concerns and implemented them into our game plan. Matt and his team were sensitive to costs, always working to keep costs down while not cutting corners. Most of all the team at BoyarMiller handled my case with great integrity and I trusted that though we might be doing the hard thing that we were doing the right thing.
After managing outside counsel for more than 10 years, I can say that Chris Hanslik is not only one of the finest litigators with whom I’ve worked, he’s also a great business partner – possessing the perfect balance of practical and passionate. He gives us the same amount of dedication and attention in all matters – large or small, simple or complex-while remaining cognizant of the company’s budget and best interests. Chris made it a point to know our business and our team, which makes him a great advocate both in and out of the courtroom.
