“Aiming to deliver just results in every case builds a better society.”

Since 2005, Chris has focused his practice primarily on employment cases. He handles a wide variety of employment cases ranging from discrimination and harassment to cases involving accommodations for individuals with disabilities, retaliation, and wage and hour cases. Chris is experienced in handling cases from their initial phases through jury verdicts.

Chris’s personal philosophy of practicing law is that he firmly believes his cases can change the world, one case at a time. Because each case is very important to him, he works to bring about a just resolution as swiftly as he can. Chris strongly believes in representing his clients ethically and with integrity.

After graduating with honors Magna Cum Laude from the University of Arizona, Chris went to law school at Arizona State University where he graduated in 2000. Following graduation, he clerked for a Superior Court judge in New Jersey. He later worked for the Civil Rights Division of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office for over four years and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for more than six years.
