I have known Chris Graham for almost 30 years. He was my associate and, later, my partner. Although we now live and practice about 2,000 miles apart, I have associated with Chris in handling certain failed bank matters. chris is a CPA/trial attorney with extensive experience in directors and officers, comprehensive general liability and other sophisticated insurance matters, failed financial institutions, professional liability litigation, and business litigation. He is outstanding.
