About Christopher Brown

About me

I am a double Gator, having gotten my degree in history and law degree from the University of Florida.  I was raised in Southwest Florida and returned here to build my law practice with my partners Jimmy and Rene.  I love to read, fish and play golf.  However, corny as it may sound, I really love my job and trial litigation best.  I went to law school to be a trial lawyer and then ended up doing corporate work out of school.  In 2002 I remembered what it was I really had a passion for and I returned to Florida and became an Assistant Public Defender in Fort Myers.  This was a wonderful experience; to learn real law in the trenches and to try a lot of cases.  After around two years as a PD, I left for private practice as an associate in a firm in Fort Myers.  I built a practice for that firm in Charlotte County and then, when I felt ready to be on my own, I left that firm in 2006 to join up with my partners and form Brown, Suarez & Rios, P.A.  I am proud of the fact that we are a litigation firm and that we have a great team of lawyers who are not afraid to go to trial; whether it be an injury case or a criminal case.  That type of aggressiveness and hard work also leads to many negotiated settlements that are favorable to our clients, because we have earned the respect of our opponents.  Our lawyers and wonderful support staff work together on every client's case and make this law frim a fun place to come to work.  We have successfully represented so many people in Southwest Florida that I am proud to say that the majority of our business comes from prior clients and other members of the legal and business community.  Check out our website at
