Chris Vernick represents health care providers, hospital systems, and medical practice groups through all phases of litigation. He also handles North Carolina Medical Board matters.

As the son of a seasoned medical malpractice defense litigator, Chris watched his father build a practice and was drawn to medical malpractice work as a result of its complexities. He quickly grew fond of the combination of litigation and medicine. That, paired with a perseverant attitude, serves as a unique foundation to achieve desirable outcomes for his clients.

After receiving a business degree from North Carolina State, Chris graduated from Campbell University School of Law. While at Campbell Law, he participated in the Advanced Trial Advocacy Program, recognized nationally by U.S. News & World Report.

After law school, he began his career under the tutelage of his father. This experience provided him with the opportunity to dive headfirst into complex medical malpractice litigation from day one, representing large hospital systems, multi-practitioner clinics, and solo practitioners.

Chris is passionate and driven towards client-centered solutions to the often complex legal challenges of each case. He is eager to put his head down and get to work adding to an already vast array of experience over his young career.
