About Christopher

Christopher S. Spencer




Chris Spencer enjoys the practice of law because it allows him to solve problems and bring disputes to a resolution. He especially likes to find legal solutions to help his clients reach their goals. Being an attorney also provides him an outlet to research interesting issues and advocate for positions to influence the law. Chris focuses his practice in the areas of workers' compensation and civil defense law.

Chris feels that Peddicord Wharton is different from other firms because of the emphasis placed on personal service to clients. Peddicord Wharton puts in the extra effort to be sure that clients are treated as we would like to be treated. With prompt responses to phone calls, emails, or written correspondence, Peddicord Wharton attorneys and staff work together with our clients to make their job easier, and to jointly work towards the best possible result for them.
