Hailing from the midwest, Chris attended Gonzaga University School of Law where he was admitted to tribal court and practiced in Gonzaga’s Federal Indian Law clinic, representing clients in family law and criminal law proceedings. After receiving his JD, Chris started his career representing injured persons in South Dakota; there he learned and honed significant litigation and trial skills while also serving on the State Bar of South Dakota’s committees for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Public Interest law. While working full time, Chris also took and passed the California State Bar exam and then relocated to Sacramento. Chris brings not only a deep knowledge of written and oral advocacy, but also a commitment to his clients; he applies these skills to each case he works on with Pollara Law Group. Outside of the office, Chris enjoys exercising, reading, and exploring California with his fiancé.
