Biography

Chris is a lifelong resident of Middle Georgia.  He attended Middle Georgia State College, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Valdosta State University, and graduated cum laude from Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School.  Chris began his practice as a prosecutor for the State of Georgia, where he gained experience in hundreds of courtroom appearances, including dozens of high stakes jury trials.  Chris has litigated cases at every level, from jury trials in superior courts to appearing before the Supreme Court of Georgia for oral arguments.  He has experience in hundreds of civil cases, including car wrecks, trucking accidents, premises liability suits, airplane crashes, nursing home deaths, and many other kinds of injury cases.
