Christopher Anderson

Christopher is a really smart guy. He can analyze and pick apart a dense legal argument like nobody’s business, and then in the next breath explain relativity or space-time to an 8-year-old. CLS_3448

Born in Brooklyn, he grew up mostly in New York and New Jersey.  He received his A.B. from Cornell University a really long time ago, when some men had mullets and took themselves seriously. Being a bit of an overachiever, he received not just his J.D. but also his M.P.A. from the University of Georgia sometime thereafter, around the time when you’d hear songs on the radio about things being “ironic” that really aren’t.

Christopher started his legal career by prosecuting bad guys accused of horrific sex crimes for the Bronx District Attorney’s office, and the courtroom became his second home. Over the years he has practiced in several different areas, handling matters as diverse as nasty divorces and custody battles to serving as general counsel to tech companies to representing pilots in licensing issues. In addition to being a scary trial lawyer when called upon to whip out those skills, Christopher also has developed a habit of being invited to give talks to other lawyers about legal technology and law practice management at big lawyer conferences.

Like Penn, Christopher is admitted to practice law in the state and federal courts of both New York and Georgia.

Christopher enjoys snow skiing, oenology, quantum mechanics and astrophysics. He is a frequent, if not always enthusiastic, runner. He is conversational in Dutch and roots for the Netherlands during the World Cup. He makes a mean cappuccino and prefers his martinis stirred, not shaken.
