Chris Wallace — OH, WV, and PA Attorney
When choosing a lawyer to work for you, you want someone who loves what he does. I'm Chris Wallace, and there is no profession I would rather have than being a trial lawyer. I am committed to representing everyday people with tough legal problems.
Experienced Litigator for People
I have over 25 years of legal experience, working for people, not companies. Right from the start, I knew I didn't want to work for big businesses or corporations. Instead, I hired on at a Plaintiff's firm in Cleveland Ohio, and I've never looked back. For the last two decades, I have been helping people with personal injury, social security disability, and workers' compensation cases across West Virginia, Ohio, and Western Pennsylvania.
"Representing people is more rewarding than representing an insurance company could ever be."
– Chris Wallace, Founder
Knowledge and Training You Can Trust
I love every area of the law. So many lawyers are working because they have to, but not me. Whether I'm researching a complicated legal question or collaborating with other litigators, I am committed to doing legal work well. I take the time to attend and lecture at continuing legal education and conferences to keep up to date developing trends in the law.
All that training works for you, giving you access to strategies and claims that other lawyers might overlook. I am committed to finding new ways to fight for my clients' rights and against systems designed to make money for big businesses.
A Lawyers' Lawyer
The proof of a high-quality lawyer is in his reputation within the industry. I have the honor of being a highly referred attorney. Many of my clients find me through other lawyers. I specialize in highly complicated, and sometimes unpopular, areas of the law. And my colleagues across the region know I do good work for my clients. They are confident that I will take good care of their family, friends, and contacts.
Working for You, On Your Terms
Even as a well-established Plaintiff's lawyer, I have never forgotten that I work for you, not the other way around. I am committed to working on your terms. That starts with a free consultation and continues all the way through to the final resolution of your case. It might mean providing detailed explanation of your rights the law. Sometimes, it even means making house calls or hospital visits. No matter what kind of injury or disability case you have, I want to make sure you are well taken care of.
