In a nutshell, I am an attorney whose passion is protecting the “little guy” in society. Our office is not afraid of taking on the multi-billion dollar insurance companies or the powerful and influential casinos which often try to avoid liability by “sticking it” to the little guy. We have had proven success against these large corporations.
No matter what the injury, you will be a priority in our practice.
I (Chris) was born in England during a time in which my father served abroad as a civilian in the United States Air Force. After a few years overseas. my father then accepted a job at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. I was raised nearby suburb of Beavercreek. As a youngster, I participated in club soccer, basketball and wrestling. After graduating from Beavercreek High School, I went on to acquire two degrees from “THE” Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. After graduation, my passion for the Law took me to San Diego, California to attend the Thomas Jefferson School of Law. While attending Thomas Jefferson, I was elected Student-Body President and President of the Sports Law Society.
Despite going to a tiny law school, I was also elected as the National Vice-Chair for the American Bar Association – Law Student Division. This was a tremendous honor as this position was elected by my fellow law school student body presidents all across the country. Finally, in my last year at TJSL, I was also appointed by the Dean of the School to the prestigious Faculty-Selection Committee and the Diversity Committee.
Preparing for my career as a litigator, I was selected and competed in several regional and national mock trial competitions for Thomas Jefferson’s first team. I also gained valuable courtroom experience by interning for the San Diego Alternate Public Defender’s Office for my last two years in law school.
Since 2004, I have tried numerous cases involving car crashes, slip and falls, construction defect housing, criminal matters, civil litigation and medical professional licensing.
I am currently a member of the State Bar of Nevada, State Bar of Arizona, State Bar of California, the Nevada Justice Association (formerly the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association) and the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association. I am admitted to practice law in Nevada, Arizona and California. I passed all three state’s bar exams on the first try!
In my spare time, I enjoy married life and I am a proud father of two young sons.
