Christopher A. Bishop
One of the benefits of practicing workers’ compensation law is the opportunity to constantly learn about the medical field, and the causes and treatment of injuries. With this knowledge I am better able to represent clients and their matters.
Attorney Chris Bishop became interested in workers’ compensation while still in law school, where he first had an opportunity to learn about this area of the law. Today, his practice is devoted almost exclusively to workers’ compensation defense, and, to a lesser degree, to OSHA and insurance defense.
Chris believes that lawyers should be strong advocates on behalf of their clients, and should do whatever they can to learn about all aspects of a claim. In this regard, Chris enjoys learning as much as possible about the legal/medical interaction involved in injury claims (including the medical aspects of injuries and treatment) so that he can be a more effective litigator. He has become known for his tenacity in not accepting opposing counsel evidence at face value and going the extra distance to strengthen the cases of firm clients.
Apart from his legal practice, Chris served a Spanish speaking, two-year church mission in Caracas, Venezuela. Chris and his wife have four children, and spend much of their time attending their children’s activities, which include band, track, and other sports. Chris is a basketball coach, youth leader at church, and is involved with scouting, as well as being an avid golfer.
