Before finding his own firm, Attorney Porreca worked for a personal injury defense firm, where he represented policy holders of large insurance companies. After this, he began representing individuals instead of institutions, and practiced municipal court and criminal defense. In 2003, Mr. Porreca established The Law Offices of Christopher G. Porreca, P.C., where 100% of his practice is devoted to litigation. At the firm, Attorney Porreca limits the amount of cases he takes on in order to provide every client with the amount of individualized attention they deserve. He understands that individuals facing criminal charges are in a stressed state, and he is dedicated to defending the rights and protecting the futures of his clients. Mr. Porreca takes on a variety of cases, and is prepared to represent individuals facing charges involving arson, domestic violence, DWI offense, probation violation, theft, white collar crimes, and more.
