About me

Attorney Christopher Breault is a second-generation trial lawyer from Columbus, Georgia whose law practice focuses on representing people in lawsuits against insurance companies and large corporations.


 


Chris is a product of the Columbus Public School System.  He grew up in south Columbus and moved to the north side of town at age 13.  He dropped out of high school after only completing the 9th grade and went to work as a concrete construction worker.  In his late teens, Chris went back to school and earned a GED.  He then went to Columbus Technical College and Columbus State University.  He eventually tranferred to the University of Georgia on a Franklin College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Political Philosophy, Chris attended the University of Georgia School of Law. During law school, he worked as a felony prosecutor in the Athens District Attorney's Office, and was one of the founding officers and President of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association Student Chapter. 


 


Shortly after law school graduation, Chris went to work as an Associate in the Downtown Atlanta office of a nationally-renowned trial lawyer and children's advocate whose firm has garnered national recognition for obtaining verdicts and settlements of $1,000,000 or more in 257 different cases. While there, he worked exclusively on seven and eight-figure medical malpractice, wrongful death, nursing home abuse, products liability, and truck wreck cases.  He now has his own practice in Athens and Columbus, Georgia.  The vast majority of his work involves helping people who have been catastrophically injured.

  • Kevin Charles Patrick

    Chris is an exceptional attorney. When I was a defense attorney, I had a case against him. He was a great advocate for his client. He understood the intricacies of the case, was well-prepared, and professional. Most importantly, his hard work in preparing the case for trial was evident from the start.
