Chris was admitted to the Missouri Bar in 2007. Though his practice primarily focuses on Real Estate, Tax Sale and Personal Injury law, he has handled numerous cases across the spectrum of both civil and criminal litigation.
Born in the Ozarks Region of Southern Missouri, Chris grew up on a dairy farm in Howell County. At the age of 18, Chris joined the Missouri Army National Guard as a Military Policeman. After graduating basic and advanced individual training at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, Chris began work on his bachelor degree at the College of the Ozarks (“Hard Work U”). After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Chris took a one-year break from college to volunteer his service in Operation Noble Eagle. Upon return from Operation Noble Eagle, Chris finished his degree program, completed an internship with the Missouri Senate, and graduated from the College of the Ozarks with a Bachelor of Science Degree. He was also commissioned into the Army as an Officer, at the rank of Second Lieutenant.
In 2004, Chris commenced work toward a jurist doctorate. While studying law, Chris continued to serve as an Officer in the Missouri Army National Guard, currently serving as the Executive Officer for 70th Troop Command at Jefferson Barracks. Chris graduated with his law degree from the University of Missouri in August of 2007, and passed the Missouri Bar Exam the following month. Upon passing the Missouri Bar Exam, Chris was admitted to the Missouri Bar and licensed to practice law in the State of Missouri, as well as in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Missouri. Chris currently sits on several Missouri Bar Committees including the Property Law, Civil Practice and Procedure, Small Firm Practice, and Tort and Transportation Committees. He also serves as an editor to the Missouri Bar’s Courts Bulletin.
When away from the office, Chris enjoys spending time on his farm in Cass County with his beloved wife, Crystal, and their three children, Alyssa, Madison, and Chaise. Chris is an avid outdoorsman and conservationist, which contribute to his appeal and expertise in real estate-related matters.
