A Boutique Business and Personal Injury Firm
Chris attributes his success to having an eclectic background of skills and experiences that help him to empathize with his clients and to view their situation and case from many different angles.
In addition to practicing law, Chris has been a Certified Public Accountant, a licensed real estate broker, a professional actor and SAG/AFTRA union member, a film producer, writer, teacher, and pool salesman.
Chris has been a motorcycle rider since he was 19 and has owned and loved several canines. Chris is an avid tennis and soccer player.
Chris has sadly been forced make the devastating decision to end artificial life support for two of his beloved family members. Chris is blessed that his son survived birth and 2 weeks in the NICU. Chris has an amazing wife who has achieved tremendous professional success of her own, two amazing children, and two dogs - the firm mascots.
Each of these experiences has been directly helpful in a number of cases. For instance, Chris' experience as a dog owner and motorcycle rider have helped him in dog negligence and motorcycle cases, and Chris' experience as an accountant plays a valuable role in nearly every case he handles.
Chris started his career working at 2 of the most prominent AMLAW 100 firms in the country, Cooley LLP in the Silicon Valley and then Reed Smith LLP in Los Angeles. Later on Chris was a partner with McIntyre, Thanasides, Panzarella, Bringgold & Todd, a regional firm in Florida.
Several years ago Chris transitioned from defending corporations to Plaintiff's litigation where he fights for his client against insurance companies and big corporations with armies of lawyers. Chris had the pleasure of working at the Homampour Firm, LLP, one of the most prestigious Plaintiff's firms in California, where he focused on catastrophic injuries and wrongful death cases.
Now Chris is thrilled to bring his 20+ years of legal experience to his own firm, Kaizen Law PC, and helping his clients get peace of mind.
Chris is licensed in California, Florida and Tennessee.
