Christopher E. Sanspree was a shareholder in one of the largest plaintiffs’ firms in the nation and concentrated his practice entirely on representing individuals against large corporations and insurance companies before starting his own law firm in 2007.

Mr. Sanspree’s great-grandfather started a tradition over 100 years ago when he graduated from Cumberland School of Law and began practicing law in Laurel, Mississippi, back in 1912. Mr. Sanspree’s father obtained his law degree in 1980, and Mr. Sanspree’s brother obtained his in 2024.

Mr. Sanspree has been involved with numerous cases against individuals, financial institutions and insurance companies that have resulted in tens of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements.
