About me

Attorney Christopher Breault is a second-generation trial lawyer from Columbus, Georgia whose law practice focuses on representing people in lawsuits against insurance companies and large corporations. Chris won a jury verdict as lead counsel of $150,000 or greater earlier in his career than any other lawyer in the State of Georgia.  He attended college at the University of Georgia on a Franklin College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Political Philosophy, he attended the University of Georgia School of Law. During law school, he worked as a felony prosecutor in the Athens District Attorney's Office, and was one of the founding officers and President of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association Student Chapter. 


Shortly after law school graduation, Chris went to work as an Associate in the Downtown Atlanta office of a nationally-renowned trial lawyer and children's advocate whose firm has garnered national recognition for obtaining verdicts and settlements of $1,000,000 or more in 257 different cases. While there, he worked exclusively on seven and eight-figure medical malpractice, wrongful death, nursing home abuse, products liability, and truck wreck cases.  In addition to his regular work at the firm, Chris also helped teach cutting-edge trial and litigation techniques at legal seminars and case workshops across the United States. These techniques have been adopted by thousands of trial lawyers and resulted in nearly $5,000,000,000 in recoveries for clients. 


After learning and helping teach these techniques, Chris took what he learned and started the trial and jury consulting company, Focus Jury Research, LLC.  FJR has fast become one of the premier trial and jury consulting companies for trial lawyers in the State of Georgia. Chris' work through Focus Jury Research, LLC has been praised by some of the most successful trial lawyers in America for providing valuable insight into cases worth well in excess of $10 million.
