After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2002, Chris sat around his parents house for about two weeks. His father had a kind, but firm, suggestion.
“Get a job.”
At the same time Steidl & Steinberg happened to be looking for a paralegal. He took the job, loved it, and his career blossomed into becoming a partner at the firm.
Juggling his work at Steidl & Steinberg with classes, Chris attended the Duquesne University School of Law, where he earned his law degree in 2008.
Chris represents many individuals in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases and a major focus of his practice is on small and medium sized Chapter 11 business reorganizations. Chris has assisted in turning around the fortunes of many failing businesses and, in the process, helping to save thousands of jobs.
Chris also handles property assessment appeal cases.
Chris currently lives in the South Hills of Pittsburgh along with his wife, two sons, and two dogs. Along with practicing law, Chris is an active member of the local community and spends his “free” time serving on the Board of Directors of a local non-profit and cheering on the Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates.
