While past results cannot guarantee a positive outcome in your case, it can give you insight into this attorney’s prior successes.
Chris Gilreath’s legal training began long before attending law school. As the son of the founder of Gilreath & Associates, Sidney Gilreath, Chris grew up working at the firm, witnessing how juries of ordinary citizens held wrongdoers accountable.
At the age of 15, Chris began assisting attorneys and clients with their cases at Gilreath & Associates. This early experience helped instill in Chris a strong sense of right and wrong, as well as a strong appreciation for how our system of civil justice works.
In college, Chris was honored with the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award, given to 1 senior man and 1 senior woman at Rhodes College who most exemplify leaders who give back to their community and leave making the college a better place.
While attending Cumberland School of Law, Chris was selected to serve on the Cumberland Honor Court, a judicial body instilled with the responsibility of prosecuting hearings for law students who have violated the school's honor code. After law school, Chris was elected to the Board of Governors of the Tennessee Association for Justice, a position he has held ever since.
Chris' understanding of the issues raised by seriously injured clients is reflected in the fact that family is a strong priority. As a devoted husband to his wife Crystal, and their 2 sons, Andrew and Samuel, Chris has worked to balance devoting time to clients, but also devoting time to raising a family.
Presently, Chris lives in midtown Memphis, Tennessee with his family. He attends Idlewild Presbyterian Church regularly, and gives of his time freely to his family and others.
