Robinson & Henry Managing Partner Don Eby recently announced that Partner Chris Sutton, who practices family law, was tapped to lead the Briargate Office in Colorado Springs.
“Chris‘ significant leadership experience both prior to law school and his experience as the Teller County Office Lead while serving as a Deputy District Attorney for the 4th Judicial District will prove to be a strong base of experience for the Briargate Office lead,” Don said.
A former environmental scientist, Chris made the switch to law after he was inspired by an attorney’s tireless efforts to help a client whose health and property suffered due to toxic waste contamination.
As a prosecutor, Chris handled and tried an array of crimes, including homicides and sexual offenses. After a decade of balancing the disheartening and rewarding work that comes with being a prosecutor, he chose to enter private practice.
Chris joined Robinson & Henry’s Colorado Springs Family Law Team in August 2020.
“[The Colorado] Springs office has a tradition of great culture and very close personal connections between the attorneys and staff,” Don added. “I’m confident that David [Hannum] and Chris will work together to ensure that each office, as well as the [Colorado] Springs area as a whole, continues to enjoy the warm and welcoming culture.”
