About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

A former prosecutor, public defender, Legal Services staff attorney, and guardian ad litem, Christopher has spent countless hours in the courtroom. He has experienced litigation from all angles and understands how to advocate accordingly.

Christopher has conducted research on matters including Federal Consent Decree Applicability; Creditors Rights and Responsibilities within the FDCPA, FCRA and landlord/tenant law; Garrity Use and Derivative Use Immunity within public sector employment; Nexus concerns involving 18 USC 924(g) Enhancements, and Involuntary Administration of Medications Purposed for Execution Competency.

While in school, and working, Christopher also served internships and externships for the United States Attorney’s Office, two Federal Public Defender Offices, and the former Chief Magistrate Judge for the US District Court for the Northern District of Alabama. And prior to law school, Christopher served as a sworn law enforcement officer and EEO Analyst for the Jefferson County Commission.

After passing the bar exam, Christopher started his own law practice from the ground up, and within a year, Bham Magazine recognized him as one of Birmingham’s Top Lawyers. Christopher associates his successes with Providence, the Lord leading him into certain situations, and his grit and determination to make the most of those situations. Christopher best relates to our clients who put in the work to see and keep their businesses, non-profits, municipalities, etc. at the top of their game.

Christopher was recruited to NWKT to utilize his comprehensive skillset. He brings to the practice of law a rare mix of intellectual rigor and client empathy. With an interest in legal research, a skill set in advocacy, and the ability to understand the client perspective, Christopher is at his professional best diving headfirst into complex legal matters requiring both impeccable attention to detail and sincere advocacy. As a firm associate, Christopher’s practice spans the gamut of general and complex civil litigation. He also maintains a selective criminal defense practice.

Outside of work, Christopher is a simple man who enjoys spending time with his wife, two young sons, and Watson, the dog. Alongside his faith, Christopher considers his family as the most important part of his life, and all of the information above is purposed toward their best interest.

The Right Choice
I found Attorney Weaver to be a knowledgeable, caring, and professional individual. From the first moment that I reached out to him, he valued me as an individual. He took the time to listen to me as I expressed my situation. In each conversation, he informed me on what he had done and he gave me information on what steps he would be taking next to bring about the final resolution to my matter.. I can count on Attorney Weaver to be mindful of the small details. I watched him make connections and draw conclusions that I missed in my own review of my circumstances. I could not be more satisfied with the representation of an attorney that I am with Attorney Weaver. I am most impressed with Attorney Weaver's vast knowledge of law. His knowledge is the winning edge....the difference maker....that clients need. I highly recommend Attorney Weaver.

Great information
Christopher was great yesterday with giving me information that I can use for a good friend's case. He took the time to be very thorough and made sure I understood exactly what he was telling me and left nothing up to interpretation. His knowledge of the law was remarkable and I would strongly recommend him to anyone that needs assistance!
