Chris is a proud Veteran of the United States Army, retiring in 2015 after 23 years of service. During his time, he served for more than 13 years as an Armor and Cavalry Officer and spent the remainder of his military career as a Judge Advocate. In 2000 he deployed to Kosovo for Operation Joint Guardian and in 2003 he was deployed to Iraq and served with the 101st Airborne Division. In 2010 he again deployed to Iraq where he served as the Brigade Judge Advocate, focusing on Operational Law, Intelligence Law, Administrative Law and Military Justice as he advised senior combat commanders.

Originally from New York City, Chris has fully adopted his midwestern values, and holds God, Family and Guns close to his heart.

“Trial is like combat. Preparation is critical, but the ability to react is the difference between winning and losing.”
