Chris volunteered more than 150 hours for several charities, including: Miracle League, PUSH America, GAP weekend, and Fostering Hope.
Chris began his legal career as an intern in the felony division for Horry County Assistant Solicitor, J. Scott Hucks. Chris participated in legal research and writing.

Chris worked as a law clerk for a Jacksonville based personal injury firm. Chris worked in every pre-suit capacity and loved his interactions with clients.
