Chris is a partner in the Personal Injury division of Burnham Law. He is a seasoned trial attorney who has tried cases in multiple states and has successfully represented clients all across the United States. Chris is Board Certified in Civil Practice Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is a National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Civil Plaintiff Trial Lawyer, a lifetime member of Million Dollar Advocates, and a graduate of Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College, the National Institute of Trial Advocacy Trial Skills course and the Trial Advocacy College of Texas. Chris is also a commercial pilot and a United States Marine Corps veteran.
Chris knows firsthand what our clients experience after an injury because he has also been injured by someone else’s negligence. He knows what it’s like to be treated by the insurance company as a claim number rather than a person who needs help. That personal knowledge and experience drives Chris to fight hard for our clients against unfair insurance companies and large corporate interests.

He is also admitted to the Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, the D.C. Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.
