also known as David Albright, David Christopher Albright
My wife and I are proud to have deep roots in Southern Nevada, including pioneer ancestors who were among the original settlers of Clark County. Not only were we both born and raised here, hiking at Red Rock, snow-skiing at Mt. Charleston, and boating at Lake Mead, but we both have parents who graduated from Las Vegas High School. We have been grateful to raise our own children here and watch them excel academically, and in other areas, through participation in local school and private sports teams, dance teams, scouting, and Church activities.
My grandfather George H. "Bud" Albright was listed in the Las Vegas Review Journal's survey of the "Top 100" Most Influential residents in the history of Southern Nevada, due to his role as the "Father of the Las Vegas Convention Center" a project he spearheaded as a local political leader and public administrator. My wife Elaine's family was influential in the development of Pahrump Nevada, where they were among the first land-owners and ranchers.
I appreciated the opportunity, during and after Law School, to extern for Judge Lloyd D. George, for whom Las Vegas's Federal Courthouse is named, and to clerk for Justice Thomas L. Steffen and the Nevada Supreme Court in Carson City, Nevada. But my most important mentor was my father, Vern Albright, a prominent local attorney since the 1960s. I continue to enjoy serving both local and international clients in real estate and corporate transactions and in business litigation in Nevada's State and Federal Courts, and in alternative dispute resolution proceedings, where I act both as an attorney advocate, and as an arbitrator, in resolving or adjudicating various legal claims.

I heartily endorse Chris Albright as a knowledgeable and dedicated attorney. He approaches each case as if it is the most important case he has uses every resource at his disposal to obtain the very best outcome possible for his clients. He is a thorough, hard-working counsellor who is well respected by co-workers, clients, and adversaries.
