Chris Fleming is a partner with Jabin & Fleming, LLC, in East Brunswick, New Jersey. An experienced litigator, Chris specializes in plaintiff's personal injury cases and criminal defense. He is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney.

Chris got his start litigating while in the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps. As a Navy JAG, Chris's first tour was in the Trial Service Office, Pacific Detachment, Yokosuka, Japan, where he served as a military prosecutor. He next served as the Assistant Command Judge Advocate on board the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63), home-ported to Yokosuka, Japan, and deployed throughout the western Pacific and Arabian Sea. 

After leaving active duty, Chris began his civilian career with Jabin & Fleming. He quickly built a practice centered on individuals in need of representation, whether due to suffering an injury or being accused of a criminal offense. Upon joining the Navy Reserves, Chris was assigned to the International and Operational Law Unit as an international law attorney. Called back to active duty in 2008, Chris served as the legal advisor to the Navy Expeditionary Logistics Support Group, Forward Headquarters, Kuwait. After re-joining his civilian practice, Chris once again started fighting for the rights of his clients.

Chris currently serves as the Commanding Officer of the Navy Reserve Naval Justice School. He was previously assigned to the Naval War College's Stockton Center for the Study of International Law as the Executive Officer and an Instructor specializing in the international law of cyber operations. He is also an adjunct instructor for the Defense Institute of International Studies, and has taught courses on the law of armed conflict and trial advocacy throughout the world.
