Personal Injury
Workers' Compensation

Before starting his own office, Chris was an associate partner at Romania & Kenworthy, LLC, a personal injury and workers compensation practice where he first started as an associate. Chris has successfully resolved hundreds of plaintiffs’ personal injury cases, either through settlement, mediation, arbitration, or trial, and handled a multitude of claimants’ workers compensation claims before the State of Connecticut Workers’ Compensation Commission. Prior to that, he worked as a staff attorney for a major insurance company, defending hundreds of personal injury actions from inception through to trial. Chris originally started working for the insurance company as a law clerk while still in law school. In addition to learning valuable research, writing, litigation and trial skills, Chris learned a great deal about how insurance companies and their claim adjusters investigate, defend, value, and negotiate personal injury claims.

Chris received his Juris Doctorate degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law, graduating magna cum laude, in May, 2009. While in law school, Chris served as the Articles and Opinions Editor of the Probate Law Journal, the fundraising chair for Phi Delta Phi International Legal Honor Society and participated on the school’s mock trial and dispute resolution competition teams. Chris also interned in the United States District Court in Bridgeport, gaining valuable research and writing experience from working alongside a federal judge and the federal law clerks.

Chris received a number of academic awards while in school, including academic achievement awards in Property, Land Use and Planning, Investigative Criminal Procedure, Medical Malpractice and Patents Litigation, and upon graduating, including Superior Classroom Performance, Service to the Law School and CATIC Foundation awards.   After graduating from Fairfield University with a degree in biology, Chris attended Sacred Heart University to complete the secondary education teacher certification program.  Chris began teaching middle school science to seventh and eighth grade students at a charter school operated by a non-profit organization in Stamford.  Chris also spent a year teaching at a public middle school in Bridgeport before deciding to pursue a career in the law. When not working on behalf of our clients, Chris enjoys soccer, golf, live music, chess and spending time with his family and friends.
