Chris started his legal career in 1990 as an Assistant District Attorney. After leaving the District Attorney’s Office in 1992, Chris continued in litigation, handling malpractice lawsuits and other types of actions, ranging from simple personal injury cases to complex contract and corporate disputes.

In 1999, Chris joined a multi-state law firm and helped the firm to establish an independent Connecticut office. At that firm, he primarily handled professional liability claims and lawsuits involving insurance agents and brokers. Since that time, he has continued to focus his practice in the area of professional liability, not only defending insurance agents and brokers, but also representing attorneys, real estate brokers and architects and engineers. Through his representation of insurance agents and brokers, he gained significant experience with insurance policies and has used that knowledge to successfully resolve many insurance coverage disputes for insurance carriers as well.

In 2008, Chris, together with Jim Keidel and Steve Cunningham started the law firm of Keidel, Weldon & Cunningham.

Over the years, Chris has primarily focused his practice in New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, but, because of his significant expertise in the area of professional liability, he has been retained by carriers nationally and in the U.S. Virgin Islands, to become admitted pro hoc vice in order to work with their local counsel.

Chris authors articles and lectures on the subject of E&O liability prevention for insurance agents and brokers. He is licensed as a continuing education instructor by the Insurance Departments in a number of states.
