Chris is committed to justice and serving those who need help. He graduated as valedictorian in political science from Brigham Young University and continued on to earn his law degree from the J. Reuben Clark Law School, graduating with academic honors. He is a skilled oral advocate, finishing in the top 8 contenders in his law school’s moot court competition. He also competed in a national moot court competition in Washington, D.C. Prior to becoming an attorney, he worked for personal injury and insurance defense firms as a case manager and paralegal. After law school, he spent years clerking for judges, tackling complicated issues of law and spending hundreds of hours in the courtroom. Chris clerked for Judge David Mortensen in Utah’s Fourth Judicial DistrictCourt as well as Judge David Hardy in Nevada’s Second Judicial District Court. His time as a law clerk made him intimately familiar with the judicial decision-making process.
When not at work, Chris is passionate about his family, movies, running, bicycling, and travel. He loves to play guitar and piano but is admittedly a little out of practice. Chris is a huge music fan and will be happy to show off his vinyl collection if you ask him! He and his family speak mostly French at home. Chris is licensed in Nevada and Utah.
