Chris Irwin enjoys bringing hope and justice into hurting peoples’ lives through his personal injury cases. As part of that, Chris embraces the challenge that medical malpractice cases pose. He has developed a reputation of mastering the complicated medical aspects of a case and turning them into something that a jury can understand.
Chris brings that same drive to master the facts into his other personal injury cases, as well. In nursing home, automobile wreck, and slip-and-fall cases, Chris enjoys figuring out what went wrong, keeping the jury focused on the true story, and bringing justice to the situation.
Chris is proud to be the son of a gifted lawyer and was fortunate to attend The Westminster Schools in Atlanta before heading off to college to study history and theatre.
With a background in performing arts, Chris is very comfortable in front of a jury, judge, or large audience. He has presented at continuing education programs and, along with his partner J. Vincent Cook, is the author of the evidence chapter in Georgia Trial Lawyers Association’s trial practice manual.
In addition to helping his clients with their needs, Chris feels fortunate to be able to serve others as a husband and father of two young children, church member and leader, community service volunteer, and Christian conciliator. If you cannot find Chris practicing law or in one of these other activities, you probably will find him cycling, hiking, or woodworking.
