Christopher (Chris) L. Wynn, was born and raised in Douglasville, Georgia.  From my native roots in the Bill Arp area of Douglas County, Georgia, I have made Douglasville and the West Georgia Area, my home.  I graduated from R.S. Alexander High School in 1995.  As a H.O.P.E. Scholarship recipient, I was the first in his family to be able to attend college.  While at Georgia State, I participated actively in Student Government, the College Republicans, the University Debate Team, and the Mock Trial Team.  As an avid supercross & motocross racer, in College, I also worked as a stuntman for many seasons in the Batman Stunt Show at Six Flags over Georgia, falling off of burning buildings and wrecking anything with wheels on it!


 


Contemporaneous with attending college, I served as a member of the executive boards of both the West Metro Young Republicans and the Douglas County Republican party, and, at the time, was the youngest member to ever serve in such a position.    Throughout college, I participated in many local, state, and national political races.  As a result, I was nominated to attend the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 


 


After graduating from Georgia State University in 2000, I attended law school at the Thomas M. Cooley School of Law in Lansing, Michigan.    While in law school, I thoroughly excelled in the study of law; maintaining a near perfect grade point average and remaining on the school’s honor roll and dean’s list my entire law school career.  Likewise, I participated in many extra-curricular activities.  I was inducted into the school’s Journal of Clinical & Practical Law, and later became Managing Editor of said publication.  In January of 2003, I graduated from the Thomas M. Cooley School of Law with top honors.


 


Remaining true to his roots, I immediately moved back to Douglasville.  Upon arriving home, I accepted a Judicial Clerkship with Judge W. O’neal Dettmering in the State Court of Douglas County, Georgia.  While clerking in the State Court, I worked closely on Criminal and Civil cases; briefing many decisions made on extensive cases.  I also helped manage an extensive caseload that was growing exponentially. Upon leaving my clerkship with the Judge, I established what was been a dynasty of legal clerkship positions from the Law School I attended, essentially paving the way for other law students from the Cooley Law School to experience legal excellence.


 


After clerking with the State Court, I was offered and accepted a position in the Office of the Solicitor General of Douglas County, Georgia.  As an Assistant Solicitor (Prosecutor for the State), I prosecuted hundreds of Driving Under the Influence (DUIs) cases.  As an attorney representing the citizens of the State of Georgia, I also was lead counsel on countless battery, assault, child abandonment, and traffic cases.  I had the opportunity to try cases against some of the best DUI and criminal defense attorneys in the State, and gained invaluable experience from do so. During my tenure as a prosecutor, I NEVER LOST A DUI CASE AT TRIAL.


 


I remained as a prosecutor until January of 2005, when I was offered a position with the Law Firm of Sherrod & Bernard.  At the time, Sherrod & Bernard focused on Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, Domestic Relations, and Family Law.  This turned out to be a great opportunity for a young, up-and-coming attorney.  Coincidentally, in January of the same year, the firm was awarded the appointment of serving as General Counsel to Douglas County, Georgia.  This seemed as a natural fit, as the firm already represented the Douglas County School Board as General Counsel. 


 


I gained invaluable experience while working as an attorney at Sherrod & Bernard.  The firmed groomed me into an experienced Domestic and Family Law Attorney.  I was able to bring excellent results to his criminal clients by applying the knowledge and ability gained as a former prosecutor.    Further, I served as Assistant General Counsel to the Douglas County School Board and Assistant County Attorney to Douglas County, Georgia.  During this time, I participated and was lead counsel on many prominent cases involving the County Government.  I also headed up the tax litigation department of the firm and handled many property tax cases involving the Douglas County Board of Assessors.


 


In January of 2008, I decided to take my career to the next level.  I realized that I could best serve my clients by “hanging my own shingle.”  Therefore, I opened my own law practice as, “Christopher L. Wynn, Esq., P.C.”  Of course, I located my practice in Douglasville, Georgia.  However, I serve various clients all over the metro Atlanta area.  I have realized success in many counties such as Douglas, Paulding, Carroll, Haralson, Coweta, Cobb, and Fulton, to name a few.  I have represented clients in major drug trafficking, sexual assault, and aggravated assault cases.  I have also been awarded a State Contract from the State Conflict Defenders’ Office to handle serious felonies in courts around the State.  I have been appointed to several murder cases and actively fight to preserve not only my clients’ liberty, but their life in those incidents!


 


I am an avid Amateur Radio operator that competitively operates in many contests, such as the CQ Worldwide (both CW and SSB), WPX, ARRL Sweepstakes, and others.  I also chase DX and currently have over 150 confirmed contries.  I hold an Advanced class operators’ license with the federally assigned callsign of N4XFA.  I like to operate in remote locations, such as different islands in the Pacific Ocean and other locations around the world.  I primarily operate CW (morse code), but also enjoy SSB and Digital modes.  If I am not at the office or in court, I am feverishly hammering away on a morse code key.


 


I also enjoy shooting IDPA, USPSA, and other competitive shooting sports.  I own many custom built race guns, as well as collector firearms that all have documented history.  One of my favorite firearms is a Japanese arisaka rifle that my grandfather brought back from Hiroshima, Japan during post war U.S. occupation.  I was fortunate enough to inherit this rifle with the Chrysanthemum still intact and matching bayonet attached.  I have it displayed on the wall of my office and it always reminds me of what great men can accomplish if they are prepared to fight for what they believe in.


 


I feel gracious to be able to live and work in the very community where he was raised.  I am  married to my wife of 15 years, Erin..  We have two children, Jackson, and Cooper, whom are both being educated in Douglas County Schools   Being “Home Grown,” I deems it a privilege to give back to the community where I was raised and am now raising my own family!
