Chris Shows has never been afraid of a little adventure.
A lifelong motorcycle enthusiast with a penchant for fighting the good fight, Chris is a self-proclaimed “underdog guy.” He realized early on that seeking justice, helping the little guy, and challenging the status quo were his passions. And like his grandfather before him, he turned to the law to pursue them.
Chris grew up in Baton Rouge but relocated to Alaska to finish high school. It didn’t take him long to make his way back to Louisiana, and he completed both his Bachelor’s degree and law degree at LSU.
Over the years, Chris built his reputation as a lawyer who fights for the people. Though he most frequently works personal injury cases, Chris also specializes in bankruptcy and debt relief, as well as small business counseling and litigation.
Chris knows that it takes time and it takes work to get families the relief they need. Often times, that means leading the charge on a case, as lead trial counsel or even working a case alone. In fact, 100% of his practice is devoted to litigation.
The most satisfying part of law, Chris says, is “maneuvering and manipulating” the complicated legal world to help someone in need. He finds these success stories as exhilarating as his cross-country motorcycle rides from Alaska back to Louisiana, and as beautiful as his vintage BMW.
When he’s not in the courtroom, you can find Chris seated behind his grandfather’s desk , mere blocks from his grandfather’s old law office, gardening out back in the evenings, or taking a spin on one of his Spanish trail bikes. Chris also enjoys sailing and traveling, especially with his two sons and dear wife Tammy.
