Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, Christian earned his Bachelor of Science in Political Science then his Juris Doctorate and began  practicing law in 2002. He was drawn to the law by his fascination with it’s nuances and how the law applies to our lives. He joined the Richard Harris Law Firm in 2019 to help his clients navigate the uncertainty of the legal system with the hope of obtaining a desirable outcome.

Christian has practiced insurance defense law, so he brings a unique perspective on how insurance companies view defense firms and how they evaluate personal injury cases. It is this perspective that has helped win numerous multi-million dollar settlements as well as several jury verdicts that have exceeded the defendant’s insurance policy.

When not helping his clients with their personal injury claims, Christian has worked Pro Bono for the Southern Nevada Legal Aid Center. He also enjoys spending time with his family and cheering on the Denver Broncos during football season.
