A chronology is a sequential arrangement of events, particularly such as a chronicle or, particularly when involving graphical or literary elements, a timeline. Armstrong Legal recommends that at the time of your appointment you have prepared a chronology. This ensures our time is best spent on getting the best result for your matter.
