About  Christopher

Christopher provides legal services to under-served communities in the Greater Austin Area.  While Christopher is not able to personally take on every matter that is brought to him, Christopher will consult with everyone who seeks legal advice.  During your consultation, Christopher will let you know whether he can represent you personally, whether he can refer you to somebody better equipped to handle your matter, or whether there are "self-help" actions that you may pursue. Please be advised that all interactions with Christopher for the purposes of obtaining legal counsel (or legal advice) are protected under attorney-client privilege and will remain confidential.

Christopher has represented citizens of the Greater Austin Area in family law matters, child endangerment matters, child neglect matters, landlord-tenant matters, probate matters, intellectual property matters (e.g., patent acquisition and trademark acquisition), and general business law matters. Christopher is also able to advise clients on criminal law matters.  

Christopher has received favorable outcomes through settlements, arbitration hearings, administrative law hearings, cease-and-desist letters, and standard courtroom proceedings.   As Christopher has a full-time job as a patent attorney, Christopher does not have the time or bandwidth to represent everyone who seeks counsel.  However, if Christopher determines that he is able to represent you, please understand that your matter will be a top priority and he will vigorously fight for a favorable outcome.

Christopher also serves as a volunteer attorney for Volunteer Legal Services (VLS) of Central Texas.  Please be encouraged to contact other volunteer attorneys associated with VLS.  VLS hosts evening clinics most Wednesdays at 6:00 pm at Webb Middle School (601 E. St. Johns Avenue).

Christopher enjoys playing tennis, teaching tennis, listening to Motown music, performing stand-up comedy, and spending time with his wife, Romi.
