About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

I take pride in defending the accused and protecting an individual's rights. My firm's results speak for themselves. I have had great success in obtaining dismissals, "not guilty" jury verdicts, and reduction of charges. It doesn't stop there. I also handle expunctions and nondisclosures to seal records of eligible clients. I have been recognized as a Top Attorney by 360 West and Fort Worth, Texas Magazines.

I graduated from Baylor Law School (J.D. '13) with a concentration in Criminal Law. While attending Baylor in Waco, Texas, I also worked in the McLennan County District Attorney's office. I also hold degrees from the University of Texas at Arlington (B.A. '10) and Tarrant County College (A.A. '09).

I am also a graduate of the Texas Criminal Trial College ('14). I am a member of the State Bar of Texas, Tarrant County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (TCCDLA), Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (TCDLA), Tarrant County Bar Association (TCBA), and the American Bar Association (ABA).

I am also a U.S. Marine Corps veteran ('02-'06). I spend much of my free time volunteering, attending sporting events or participating in triathlons, endurance and adventure races. Visit to learn more about me and to view some of my recent result.

| Hired Attorney
dropped felony charge
Chris Lankford was an excellent attorney. Walked me through every step of the way to help get my husband out of jail. He had a few felony charges and we were able to get them all dropped to differed probation. We were so happy with all of his work and how promptly he would get in touch with us. We would recommend Chris to anyone in the fort worth/dallas area!
