Christopher L. Haas
Attorney Christopher L. Haas began his legal career in 1997 clerking for Judge’s John Roe and Stephen Pemberton in the 13th Judicial Circuit of Illinois. While clerking for these reputed Judges, Mr. Haas performed extensive research, attended hearings and trials, and prepared legal memoranda for virtually all types of legal matters within the jurisdiction of the Circuit Courts, including real estate and other contract matters, probate and estate matters, torts, family law, worker’s compensation appeals and criminal matters. It is there Mr. Haas learned his way around the courtroom and the court system and first witnessed the wisdom, efficiency, and necessity of resolution-minded judges and attorneys—an approach he has carried with him and employed throughout his career in both the public and private sectors.
