Obtained dismissal of product liability wrongful death action against aircraft manufacturer. United States District Court, Southern District of Mississippi, Southern Division.
Chris Rodgers has always had a client-first mindset. The son of an attorney, Chris learned first-hand what it takes to create the best possible outcomes for those he defends. He witnessed the results of hard work, longer hours and strategic planning. He learned the value of building quality relationships and the personal reward of advocating for others.
When Chris joined the firm in 1988, he brought with him the same dedication. Chris concentrates his practice in the areas of general liability, product liability, personal injury, trucking litigation, aviation defense, commercial law, employment litigation, insurance coverage litigation, professional liability and tort litigation. He has had numerous favorable decisions rendered by the Alabama Supreme Court and has tried to verdict decisions for major automotive manufacturers, as well as agricultural, logging and construction equipment manufacturers. One of the aspects of practicing law that Chris enjoys the most is the opportunity to interact with people on a daily basis. He collaborates closely with his clients and leverages the wisdom and winning trial experience of his law partners and associates to build the most solid case possible.
When he’s not working, Chris enjoys hunting, fishing, Alabama football and spending time with his wife, Kimberly, and their two daughters, Anna Wynn and Abbie.
Chris earned his BS from The University of Alabama and his JD from The University of Alabama School of Law.
