The firm deeply mourns the loss of Christopher Dressler, who passed away on May 13th after a lengthy battle with cancer. Chris was a member of the firm for thirty years. He will be remembered not only for his renowned trial skills and dedicated service to his clients, but also for his integrity, leadership and wise counsel. Chris was a beloved partner, mentor, husband, father, and friend. He will be sorely missed.

Details for the service of remembrance will be posted here when they become available.


  1. I’m so sorry to learn of Chris’s passing. I am a court reporter in the Albany area and I had worked with Chris on a very lengthy case and found him to be a very patient and upstanding attorney. I send my condolences to his family and colleagues.

  3. Chris was a straight shooter. He was vigorous in representing his client, but at the same time had a very humorous, self deprecating side.
