About me

Our practice was started in 1992 here in my home of Gwinnett County. I am the seventh generation of my my family to live and work in this area and I am proud of the roots and connections that gives me to this community. I am a graduate of the University of Georgia where I received my undergraduate degree in Business. I also graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law and continue to be active with the University. I am a member and past President of the Lawrenceville Kiwanis Club and I remain busy with various community outreach endeavors. Our practice reaches many different issues but the focus has always been on litigation and trial work. We also do our share of appeals before the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court. In the months of January and February, we won two unanimous decisions before the Supreme Court.

  • David Michael Lawler

    I endorse this lawyer. Chris is tough as nails, without a doubt. He works hard for his clients and makes me earn every dollar when we're on opposite sides. Yet, when I see his name on a case as opposing counsel, I know that I'll be working with a straight-shooter.
