About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

Before starting work at the Law Offices of George H. Romania in January 2016, I
worked as a staff attorney for a major insurance company, defending hundreds of personal injury actions from inception through to trial.  I originally started working for the insurance company as a law clerk while still in law school.  In addition to learning valuable research, writing, litigation and trial skills, I learned a great deal about how insurance companies and their claim adjusters investigate, defend, value and negotiate personal injury claims.  My experience working as a defense attorney has resulted in an ability to better prepare clients for depositions and other court proceedings, since I can anticipate the other side’s approach to each particular case.  In January 2019, I became a partner at Romania & Kenworthy, LLC.           

I received my Juris Doctorate degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law, graduating magna cum laude, in May, 2009.  While in law school, I served as the Articles and Opinions Editor of the Probate Law Journal, the fundraising chair for Phi Delta Phi International Legal Honor Society and participated on the school’s mock trial and dispute resolution competition teams.  I also interned in the United States District Court in Bridgeport, gaining valuable research and writing experience from working alongside a federal judge and the federal law clerks.  I received a number of academic awards while in school, including academic achievement awards in Property, Land Use and Planning, Investigative Criminal Procedure, Medical Malpractice and Patents Litigation, and at graduation, including Superior Classroom Performance, Service to the Law School and CATIC Foundation awards.  

 

After graduating from Fairfield University with a degree in biology, I attended Sacred Heart University to complete the secondary education teacher certification program.  I began teaching middle school science to seventh and eighth grade students at a charter school operated by a non-profit organization in Stamford, CT.  I also spent a year teaching at a public middle school in Bridgeport before deciding to pursue a career in the law. 

 

When not working on behalf of my clients, I enjoy playing and watching soccer and golf, watching live music, playing chess and spending time with my family and friends.

| Consulted Attorney
One of the good guys!
I had two positive experiences with Mr. Kenworthy. He represented me in a case when he worked for an insurance company. Throughout the process he promptly returned my phone calls in a timely manner and clearly explained the legal process. Due to this positive experience, I sought him out several years later for a consultation. He once again guided me through the legal process and empowered me to make my own decisions based on the array of options that he thoroughly outlined. He stayed in close communication but was not pushy or intrusive. Mr. Kenworthy was in no way eager to fulfill his own agenda but was looking out for the best interest for me and my family. In my 17 years working as a Family Therapist, I have interacted with a variety of attorneys in family court cases and child advocacy. I would not hesitate to contact Mr. Kenworthy again or to recommend him to others. He is one of the good guys!
