Christopher Nace

About Me

I'm a plaintiffs trial lawyer in Washington, DC and very proud to have the opportunity to represent individuals who have been harmed through no fault of their own.


I probably spend too much time working, but when I'm not in my office I enjoy (?) running marathons and have recently started trying to tackle some triathlons.


I'm an avid Georgetown Hoyas basketball fan and a Washington Redskins fan.  My baseball loyalties are split between the Atlanta Braves (I lived in Atlanta for 8 years) and the Washington Nationals.  I would like to see the Nats develop into a strong team because it would be good for the city.

    Chris is a shrewd and skillful litigator. I had the pleasure to work with Chris on a complicated manner and I watched him successfully negotiate an excellent settlement. I recommend Chris highly.

  • Thomas Lowe Young

    Chris and the other members of his firm are some of the best medical malpractice attorneys in the United States. It is a family affair, which in my mind is a critical distinction when it comes to representing your family in a medical negligence or other tort claim. Chris and his brothers Jonathan and Matthew are lead by their father Barry, a stalwart in the field of medical malpractice litigation. The firm combines youthful enthusiasm, cutting edge techniques and decades of experience to bring about the best possible outcomes for their clients. In addition, Chris works actively to educate the public on how the civil justice system works and why it is important. He is also a firm believer in making the practice of medicine safer. In fact, if given the option, I'm sure Chris would prefer to never represent another victim of medical malpractice. Until that day comes, should you need the services of a medical negligence attorney in the Washington, DC area, you'd do well to contact Chris.
