Christopher J. Finney received his law degree from St. Louis University, where he was awarded the David J. Hensler academic award for excellence in trial advocacy. Upon graduation, he accepted a position as an assistant circuit attorney in the Circuit Attorney’s Office in St. Louis, MO. While at the Circuit Attorney’s, Chris handled various issues, including Grand Jury indictments, felony gun, and drug crimes.
After the CAO’s, Chris accepted a job at a large insurance defense firm where he handled cases ranging from dog bites to premises liability to auto collisions to wrongful death. He gained valuable insight into how an insurance company and defense team analyze and handle claims and litigation.
It was in 2012; he joined his father and brother in practice. There, he began his journey as a plaintiff’s trial attorney, fighting against the industry he once defended.
In 2018, Chris opened his solo trial practice, Finney Injury Law. Today Chris and his team try injury claims of all types, including trucking crashes, auto collisions, wrongful death, catastrophic injury, and premises liability. Because of his former experience as a football player and coach, he is particularly interested in head injury cases, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries.
Since opening his private practice, he has supported hundreds of clients through their recovery process and help them find justice for their injuries. He was selected as a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum at the age of 30, an invitation-only group in which less than 1 percent of attorneys are members nationwide. He is also a member of numerous organizations and is often invited to share his industry knowledge with peers at educational conferences.
