Christopher Pugh was inspired to become a lawyer when he realized that the law can affect people’s lives on a daily basis. Because he has felt the sting of unfairness and injustice in his own life, he wanted to fight for the rights of others. His goal is have clients who are satisfied and happy with the outcome of their cases, find justice, and move on with their lives after difficult times.
Christopher’s greatest strengths are his ability to negotiate outcomes that are in his clients’ best interests and communicate well with both clients and opposing counsel. Formerly a defense attorney for the insurance companies, he understands how they evaluate cases and uses his knowledge to help his worker’s compensation clients. Christopher is a good listener, a good writer, and a down-to-earth, unintimidating folksy person that people feel comfortable with. He is proud to help clients achieve their goals, even if those goals change along the way.
Christopher received his BS from Georgia State University, Andrew Young School of Public Policy and graduated summa cum laude. His law degree is from Georgia State University College of Law. As a student lawyer, he represented clients at the Investor Advocacy Clinic, a Georgia State law school clinic providing pro bono services to clients who had been wronged by their brokers and investment advisors who could not otherwise afford an attorney. He received CALI Awards, the highest grade in a law school course, in Alternate Dispute Resolution, Sexual Identity and the Law, and the CLEA Outstanding Clinical Student Award. Before attending law school, Christopher had many years of business experience. He enjoys college sports, history, poker, and travel.
