He then attended law school in Chicago where he has resided since 1994. Chris began his legal career at a small litigation firm before moving to a large Chicago litigation firm. He began to wonder what it would be like to create a law firm where he could take his extensive background and combine it with a more personal and affordable experience for his clients.
