Christopher Shakib

shakib 2013

Chris began his career fighting for victims’ rights as a state prose­cutor of violent criminals. From 1992 to 1996, he prose­cuted bad guys and witnessed the life-long harm criminals inflicted on their victims, because they made a conscious decision to do wrong, often for financial gain.

Since then, he’s trans­ferred that passion for holding bad guys accountable and helping victims to the civil justice system.

As a partner at Terrell Hogan, Chris advocates for those injured or killed by medical malpractice — including women injured in an alleged breast implant warranty scheme — defective drugs, defective medical devices, pharmacy negli­gence and consumer products. He is driven to stop companies and practi­tioners from putting profits over people, especially when they knowingly provide a product or service that hurts consumers or falls below industry standards. He also repre­sents victims of defective consumer products, commercial truck accidents and motor vehicle crashes.

Chris is the proud father of two children, Ashley and Evan. An avid surfer, runner, and amateur boxer, he considers the mountains of Western North Carolina his second home.
