As a medical doctor and a counselor, Chris Elliott's parents had a passion for helping people. Influenced by this, the former history major chose to study law instead of business. In his sophomore year of college, Chris made a conscious decision to pursue a meaningful career over a vocation driven solely for profit.
Chris's first interaction with Bachus & Schanker, LLC was as a legal intern, when he provided pro-bono services through the Trial Lawyers Care Program in 2002. He helped represent first responders injured in the line of duty during the 9/11 attacks in New York. Chris worked on a case involving a firefighter, who sustained career-ending injuries that prevented him from supporting his family. He worked diligently with Bachus & Schanker, LLC's legal team to win a multimillion-dollar settlement for the victim and his family. Chris and the team stay in touch with the client, whose New York City firefighter helmet is proudly displayed in the firm's Wynkoop office.
