Chris in his own words

I have dedicated my legal career to employment litigation and helping my clients achieve their goals. I take great pride in leading the Employment Litigation practice group here at Nilges Draher LLC because we have the opportunity to stand up for employees' rights and fight back against mistreatment in the workplace.

Before beginning my legal career, I served as an officer in the United States Marine Corps, and I bring the discipline I learned in the military to my legal practice. Throughout my career, I've cultivated a strong reputation within the field, and I am proud to have been recognized by my peers as an Ohio Super Lawyer-Rising Star in the field of Labor and Employment Litigation for the years 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.

To learn more about we can help you and to discuss the details of your legal case, contact our law firm today. I would be honored to speak with you about your legal rights in a free consultation.
