Attorney Christopher Hickey is a local product of the Coachella Valley; he was born in Palm Springs and graduated from Palm Desert High School.

Mr. Hickey credits his father for installing his early tenacity and vigor for the law when observing his father’s criminal defense practice in Palm Springs.
A highly-awarded debater in college, Mr. Hickey continued his schooling at George Mason University School of Law, where he excelled in persuasive argumentation and writing.
