Chris Wooten

Life Mantra: “Be just and fear not!”

Best Advice Given: “I tell everyone who is considering a lawyer to represent them that they should hire a lawyer they know they can trust.”

Best Advice Received: “My grandfather always told me that you don’t ever have to worry about doing what you know is right.”

Favorite Hobbies: “I love to read history, science fiction, and fantasy. I also love comic books and graphic novels.  And I hike and garden.  Full disclosure: I am a huge nerd and really enjoy board games and tabletop role-playing games, especially Dungeons and Dragons.”

Chris Wooten’s maternal grandfather was the son of immigrants whose Army career was marked by a life of service.  His grandfather emphasized honor and doing the right thing−even when doing the right thing was difficult.  But the lessons didn’t end there.  At the age of 14, Chris landed his first job stocking drink coolers and mopping floors at a country gas station that his dad managed.  From his father, he learned the value of work as both a means to earn a living and as a way of proving himself.

Those lessons of service and appreciation for hard work shaped his work ethic then and continued into his practice as a lawyer.  Before studying at Cumberland School of Law, he worked for three years as a staff member at Siniard, Timberlake & League.  Throughout his years of practice, Chris has come to be regarded, among colleagues and clients, as someone who is knowledgeable and trustworthy.  His clients know that he is going to stand up for them and do what he can to get the outcome, in their cases, which is best for them. 

Outside of his work at the firm, Chris holds memberships in the Alabama State Bar Association; the Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association; the American Association for Justice; and the Alabama Association for Justice, an organization for which he co-authored several legal articles.  He has served as President of the Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association Young Lawyers Section; Secretary of the Huntsville-Madison County Bar Association; and currently serves on the Board of The Schools Foundation.  In the past, he has also served on the Board of Alabama Arise. He has won cases at trial and on appeal before the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals and the Supreme Court of Alabama.

Friends describe Chris as patient, steadfast, and empathetic: all traits you’d appreciate in a friend and a lawyer.  He is married with two sons and lives in Huntsville, Alabama.
