Christopher R. KonnekerAssociate
Chris Konneker’s experience in Family Law stretches back nearly ten years, with additional experience handling matters in Commercial Litigation, Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, and Immigration Law. He takes great satisfaction in helping people through tough times, especially in those instances he can reunite parents and their children. Chris’s father, a retired patent attorney, always told him that the law is a powerful way to genuinely help others, and Chris lives by this maxim in the work he does with families every day.
Those who work with Chris describe him as thorough, empathetic, and someone who cuts straight to the point. He understands the emotional stress that comes with matters such as divorce, adoption, and child custody, and he’s found that many of those he’s spoken with are simply lacking someone who will actively listen to their case. The best representation he can provide his clients is achieved by listening to those concerns and then communicating how the law can assist, as well as what he believes will benefit them the most. After that discussion, Chris is able to quickly identify the steps necessary to achieve the best possible solution. While that process can be difficult, Chris has never been one to back down from a challenge.
Chris graduated from St. Mary’s University School of Law in 2012. Prior to law school, he earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at Dallas in Psychology, cum laude.
Outside the office, Chris enjoys running, cooking, and spending time with his wife, children, and dog.
