Attorney Profile

Born and raised in the Midwest, Chris has spent most of his adult life in the Carolinas. Chris attended Duke University School of Law, where he was elected the first African American Editor in Chief of the Duke Law Journal. While in law school, Chris volunteered as an intake intern for Legal Aid of North Carolina, represented clients as a student attorney in the Start-Up Ventures Clinic, participated in Moot Court, and won 1st Place in the Louis Jackson National Student Memorial Writing Competition in Employment and Labor Law.

After law school, Chris clerked for Judge James A. Wynn, Jr. on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and Judge Richard M. Gergel on the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina. Chris initially planned to work for a large law firm in Los Angeles after his clerkships, but his experience clerking for Judge Gergel during United States v. Dylann Storm Roof factored heavily into his decision to stay in South Carolina and represent individuals and small businesses who have been harmed by the actions of others.

Chris serves on the board of Charleston Legal Access, a nonprofit law firm representing modest-means clients who do not make enough to pay standard rates for an attorney. Chris is also on the Duke Law Alumni Association Board of Directors.

Chris is a member of the bars of South Carolina, U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina, and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and he passed the July 2016 California Bar Exam.

Before law school, Chris attended Duke University as a Reginaldo Howard Scholar, where he received an A.B. in Economics. Upon graduation, Chris joined Teach for America (TFA) and worked in Durham Public Schools as a 7th-grade special education teacher and an assistant baseball and soccer coach. After completing his two-year TFA commitment, Chris worked for a year at a K-8 public charter school in Durham, where he managed a small special education caseload and founded and ran the school’s first music program for its 300+ students.

Chris lives downtown with his dog, Bowser, and both enjoy Folly Beach, where they lived when they first moved to the area. In his spare time, you may find him playing guitar and singing at an open mic, longboarding around town, or meeting new people.
