Chris is the only candidate who is an Attorney.  He is the only candidate legally trained in this field.  He has served the public and his community as a West Goshen Township Supervisor, a soldier in the U.S. Army, a volunteer summer school teacher in Philadelphia through the Teach for America program, a Chester County Correctional Officer and Correctional Counselor, a Chester County Public Defender, a Court appointed counsel for guardianship matters, a volunteer youth soccer coach for the YMCA, and a Program Coordinator for the Chester County OIC Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program, Workforce Reintegration Program, and the at-risk youth Career Corps Program.


Chris is a longtime resident of Chester County.  He returned to West Chester after serving honorably in the U.S. Army, where he completed the U.S. Army Airborne Course (Paratrooper Course) and received two Army Commendation Medals during his service.  With help from the GI bill, Chris attended Temple University Law School after getting married and while working full-time.  During this time, he worked primarily at the Chester County Prison, and served both as a Correctional Officer and later as a Correctional Counselor.  As an attorney, Chris served as a part-time Chester County Public Defender for five years while also establishing his own practice.  He is now employed at the law firm of Pine & Pine, LLP, specializing in guardian, probate and real estate law to include recording of deeds.

Chris is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey.  He has served as an arbitrator for the Chester County Court of Common Pleas arbitration panel.  He  has successfully completed the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Education Institute courses in Zoning and Community Planning.  As a Township Supervisor, Chris served as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors and Chairman of the Comprehensive Plan Task Force Committee in addition to Board liaison member to the Planning Commission and the Parks & Recreation Committee.

As a veteran, Chris is  proud to have worked for the non-profit Chester County OIC Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program as the Program’s Coordinator, helping to employ many local veterans.  He continued to aid our financially challenged residents as the Program Coordinator for the Chester County OIC Workforce Reintegration Program and the Business Outreach Coordinator for the OIC Career Corps program.  He attributes much of his success to the strong support of his wife of twenty-three years, Christine. They are the proud parents of two wonderful children and consider themselves blessed to live in Chester County.
