About Kristopher

Kris is a problem solver. His client-centric practice is focused on construction law including litigation and arbitration, insurance law, and commercial litigation. He handles cases involving all manner of disputes relating to construction projects, commercial liability, professional liability, insurance coverage, and estates. This necessarily keeps him exposed to many areas of law, which he finds deeply engaging. With over a decade of experience, Kris has represented a wide range of people and organizations, including contractors, insurers, developers, construction managers, property owners and businesses.

In Kris’s personal life, he is addicted to talk radio—but remains a long-time-listener-first-time-caller. He is reluctantly transitioning from running to jogging. His main pastime is practicing parkour in the kitchen with his family.
