About Christopher | Atlanta, GA
Ever since he decided to go to law school, Christopher Jackson has wanted to spend his career helping people in their times of greatest need. To him, representing those who have suffered due to the negligence of others is an honor and a privilege. He is passionate about the law and he is proud to have built a reputation among his peers as a thorough, thoughtful, and skilled advocate.
After graduating from Emory Law, Christopher began his legal career representing people who had been charged with crimes but could not afford to pay an attorney. He learned from day one that the legal system only provides a fair playing field when passionate advocates use their skills to fight back against our nation’s most powerful institutions. And fight he did. Christopher tried numerous cases before juries and won almost all of them, gaining the respect of prosecutors and other local attorneys along the way.
From there, Christopher took his sharpened advocacy skills and applied them to civil practice. He spent years working for two of Atlanta’s premiere insurance defense firms, one of which is very large while the other is a smaller “boutique” firm. This unique experience puts Christopher in a rare position of knowing how top-notch defense lawyers from different environments handle cases. While representing defendants, Christopher forged relationships with insurance adjustors who would give him their candid thoughts on what makes or breaks a case and what those cases are really worth to insurance companies.
Now, Christopher is proud to be using his training to do what he’s most passionate about: helping the people who need him most. His experience representing large companies, small businesses, doctors, hospitals, property owners, and other defendants is an invaluable asset for his clients. Victims of negligence can look to Christopher to be a compassionate lawyer with a fighting spirit and the will to win.
