About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

The Mission of New Leaf Family is to empower our clients to make the best decisions they can for themselves and their families, and to use conflict as fuel for growth.

We believe in doing things quite differently.

There is a certain way that family law firms have traditionally done things in order to represent their clients. Over the years, the founders of New Leaf Family observed and experienced many things not to do, and things that should be done … that aren’t. We saw that the family law process tends to hurt people more than help them through various family and relationship transitions and disputes.

We know relationship transitions and disputes are undeniably a part of life. Having experienced the combination of practicing family law in court, working, mentoring and consulting with dozens of family law firms across the country, and experiencing family law disputes personally in our own lives, we have seen that the “normal” way of going about these life challenges has included:

  • Prolonging litigation needlessly,
  • Fanning the flames rather than seeking resolution,
  • Charging a lot of money in unpredictable ways, and
  • Leaving clients in the lurch at times when they are most in need of guidance.

In the face of this, we created a vision and offerings that allow our clients to not only deal with the dispute or issue at hand in a non-damaging way but to actually promote growth and positive outcomes, not just in spite of, but because of the difficult situations that they’re going through.

Our families and relationships are some of the very most important things to all of us. Sometimes we need help managing them, in various regards. If you or your child sought to play with a sports team, would you prefer that team to have a coach, or no coach? The team that has a coach to push, analyze, encourage, guide, and otherwise support its members is much more likely to be its best, than one that doesn’t have that support. That’s a large part of what we are about.

Helpful, Knowledgeable, Engaged
Mr. Anderson handled my case with excellence, professionalism and perserverance. I didn't get everything I wanted, but believe I got everything I deserved. Mr. Anderson and his staff at Timmons, Warnes & Anderson kept me informed on my case. My only criticism is that it was sometimes difficult to speak with Mr. Anderson right away when I wanted to, but he always responded to me within a day or so.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Sep 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Christopher manages to effectively balance being an aggressive litigator in the courtroom and a shrewd negotiator in the boardroom with also showing compassion, kindness, and strength to and for his clients. He has an amazing ability to think of creative solutions to problems - to think outside the box to achieve better results than seem possible in the miasma of the conflict at hand. He is intelligent, articulate, and approachable. With a background in technology, he brings strategic innovations to the firm which promote efficiency without sacrificing the human touch. Judges and other attorneys respect him, and clients return to him when the need arises. As the situation calls for it he is gifted in empowering, rescuing, protecting, collaborating with and encouraging those he works with and for and then challenging, humbling, and ultimately defeating those adverse to his clients' needs."
