Chris is equally focused on obtaining a favorable outcome for his clients – while upholding their reputation.
Chris joined the firm shortly after obtaining his undergraduate degree. He had always displayed an interest in working in the legal field, so he decided to get his feet wet as a law clerk before ultimately making the commitment to attend law school. After receiving his juris doctorate, he practiced in tax law for nearly two years before rejoining Weltman as an associate attorney. The foundation he had already obtained allowed him to dive right into his practice and immediately establish his own client base.
Practicing in consumer collections and subrogation, Chris seeks to craft a solution for every problem his clients bring to his attention. He is passionate and motivated, and enjoys researching the law. His clients appreciate that he can interpret the law in a manner they can easily understand, and with his thorough research, they are confident in his ability to keep them in compliance with the many regulations that impact their business.
Elected to the Michigan Creditors Bar Association Board of Directors, Chris works to improve state laws on behalf of attorneys who practice in consumer collections. The premier organization in Michigan for debt collection and creditors' rights attorneys, their mission is to elevate the practice of law, provide members with educational seminars and networking opportunities, and to promote legislation and court rules to strengthen and improve the judicial system.
Chris spends his free time with his family, friends, and his two cats. He especially looks forward to Monday night hockey games with his father – a sport they have played together ever since he can remember. Chris also enjoys traveling with his wife, especially to the Caribbean. So far they have vacationed in Curacao, Aruba, Cabo San Lucas, Jamaica, Cozumel, Haiti, and Mexico.
