Chris Waggoner has a passion for defense-based litigation and has helped both public and private companies. As part of SBSB Eastham’s Defense Base Act practice, he’s able to do just that.

Before law school, Chris worked for software companies performing data analytics. He quickly realized he wanted to find for himself a more pivotal role that would allow him to use his skills as a public speaker and avid communicator. A career in law has been a perfect fit. Chris uses these skills to advocate on behalf of those he represents and to build unique and creative defenses to solve their most pressing issues.

Chris graduated from Baylor University School of Law. Before that, he received a Bachelor of Science in Entertainment Business from Full Sail University. In his free time, he enjoys boiling crawfish and sports in all kinds of weather, be it golf, hiking, or snowboarding.
