Christopher est originaire de la région de la capitale nationale et c'est là qu'il a grandi. Il a étudié à l'Université d'Ottawa et a obtenu un baccalauréat en sciences avec spécialisation en physiologie, mention magna cum laude. Dès son premier cycle, il a participé à la publication de recherches en biologie moléculaire.

Après quoi, Christopher a poursuivi ses études toujours à cette même université, cette fois en droit, au programme français de Common law. Il a obtenu son diplôme en 2008 et a fait son stage en 2009; il fut reçu au Barreau de l'Ontario en juin de cette même année.

En tant qu'avocat, Christopher se spécialise dans la revendication des droits des personnes ayant subi des blessures, ainsi que de leurs familles.  Il prend le temps de comprendre à fond tous les aspects de la cause de ses clients, son but étant de les aider à refaire leur vie. Il représente des gens faisant des réclamations suite à des blessures ou de l'incapacité à long terme découlant d’accidents de la route, de chutes et autres, ainsi que de situations de négligence médicale et d'homicide délictuel. Il porte aussi une attention particulière aux cas de québécois ayant subi des blessures en Ontario.

Christopher parle couramment le français et l'anglais et peut servir ses clients dans une langue ou l'autre.

Chris was born and raised in the Nation's Capital and serves clients in both English and French. He first obtained his bachelor degree in Science with specialization in Physiology from the University of Ottawa where he graduated magna cum laude and assisted in publishing papers in the field of molecular biology.

After obtaining his bachelor degree in Science, Chris entered law school and graduated from the French Common Law program of the University of Ottawa in 2008. He completed his articles of clerkship and was called to the Ontario bar in June of 2009.

Chris's practice is focused on helping injured people and their families pursue their legal rights. Chris takes the time with his clients to fully understand all aspects of their case.
