Chris finished near the top of his law school class at the University of Kansas and was selected to be Editor in Chief of the Kansas Law Review. After law school, he served as a law clerk for a federal judge in the United States District Court in Kansas City, Kansas. Chris then moved to Washington, DC, with his wife (who is also an attorney). He practiced law for almost a decade in DC at the United States Department of Justice and in an international law firm. At the DOJ, he pursued cases involving fraudulent tax shelters and accounting fraud. In private practice, he represented companies in multi-million dollar patent infringement cases and investigated charges of international financial bribery.
Chris has tried cases involving patent litigation, tax and accounting fraud, partnership disputes, fraud, breach of contract, misrepresentation, and violation of consumer laws.
Chris and his wife, Beatriz, decided to move back to Kansas City in order to be closer to their families and practice a different type of law. Chris was the first in his family to go to college, and he paid for his own undergraduate, graduate, and law school education. Chris practices law because he believes in the underdog. It is what gets him excited about coming into work each day.
