Chris graduated from the University of Texas before attending Tulane Law School in New Orleans. While in law school, he worked for defense firms learning how to represent insurance companies. After becoming a lawyer, his career began at the Milling, Benson Law Firm in New Orleans. But he was soon recruited by his previous employer, Texas State Senator Carl Parker to assist in a federal jury trial in Texas.
Once united with Senator Parker, Chris began handling personal injury cases. In his first assignment, he won a significant recovery for a worker injured by a fork falling from a lift truck. That early success opened doors that allowed him to work on other substantial cases, and he has since been lead counsel in many multi-million-dollar civil cases. He served as co-chair and liaison counsel in the federal Multi-District Norplant drug case, and as liaison counsel for all plaintiffs in a major oil spill case in Houston Federal District Court.
Chris knows what it takes to prepare and win a case at trial. His impressive record of success has inspired confidence among his clients and peers and led to numerous referrals from other lawyers, including those he previously opposed. He has also received referrals from judges, jurors, doctors, and past clients.
