He’s represented hundreds of clients in cases ranging from personal injury to criminal defense to trucking accidents.
Chris started his trial career with an acquittal in a double felony case in Cleveland County. As he left the courtroom that day, he knew his place was in the courtroom, fighting for his clients.
Chris and Jeff Laird met while working at another law firm. Chris and Jeff’s son decided to strike out on their own in 2009, and Jeff joined them. When they started the firm, Chris and his partners made a pact to fight for the little guy.
