About Chris Waters
Christopher Warren Waters is a St. Petersburg native who was born and raised in the Tampa Bay area.
He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of South Florida’s Muma college of Business, graduating with honors as a member of the USF Football team and several other collegiate groups.
Chris decided to continue his education in Jacksonville, Florida, simultaneously earning his law degree and his Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Jacksonville University, all before turning 25 years old.
Staying in Florida to pursue these degrees allowed Chris to fine-tune his knowledge of Florida’s diverse legal landscape, as well as the many business considerations that often go hand-in-hand with complicated legal matters.
Chris was duly sworn into the Florida Bar in November of 2016 and currently focuses on personal injury and civil litigation, including complex auto accident cases. Chris is a member of the “Million Dollar Advocates Forum”, a prestigious group of trial lawyers who have obtained verdicts and/or settlements of more than $1 Million Dollars, while also receiving multiple nominations as a “Super Lawyer Rising Star”.
When not practicing law, Chris can often be found boating on the beautiful waters around Tampa Bay and spending time with his growing family, all while supporting community and charitable endeavors.
