Kris is a trial lawyer who wants to help people and their families. Kris has a particular interest in medical malpractice, car crash cases and long-term disability claims. Kris was born and raised in Trenton and has strong roots in the local community. Kris graduated from St. Paul's Secondary School in Trenton. He played for the Quinte Red Devils Triple AAA hockey teams and the Belleville Bulldog Rugby Club. After graduating from St. Paul's, he attended Queen's University in Kingston where he obtained an Honours Commerce degree. After graduating Queen's he felt the call to follow his father's footsteps and become a lawyer. Off he went to the big city to the University of Toronto for law school, graduating in 2000. Kris stayed in Toronto after graduation learning the ropes with the national law firm of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin (now simply called Faskens) before returning home.

Kris has successfully argued cases before juries, judges and the Court of Appeal in Toronto. He works with his clients to obtain the best possible results. For most cases that will mean resolving the cases before trial. However, he has the experience and know-how to take a case to trial if the that is what is necessary to help his clients.

“Knowing that I can help real people in our community when they are in need drives me every day to be better. I love knowing that as a trial lawyer I can help make a difference in someone's life.”
