With a Graduate Portfolio in Dispute Resolution (University of Texas), and as a Certified Mediator with nearly two decades of experience, Chris brings a complete set of tools to each matter, saving his clients the stress and expense of a courtroom battle when possible.
Chris’ legal acumen and dedication have earned him numerous accolades, including Outstanding Young Attorney by Texas Monthly and “Texas Super Lawyers,Rising Star” by Thomson Reuters. Most recently, Chris was voted “Best Attorney” in the 2017 and 2018 Lakeside Editions of Living Magazine, which serves the Rockwall, Rowlett, Fate, Heath, and Royse City areas.
A member of the Rockwall Bar Association, Chris is actively involved with his faith and community. He is a proud sponsor of Billie Stevenson Elementary, a member of the Rockwall Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the J. Reuben Clark Law Society.
