Chris Hamilton

Hamilton Wingo, LLP co-founder and attorney Chris Hamilton is a passionate advocate for his clients; he’s a high-stakes trial lawyer with the courtroom skills to seek justice for those who have been wronged in business disputes. The holder of record-setting verdicts and settlements for nearly impossible legal situations, Chris has fought the battle for his clients throughout his 12-year career, most recently winning an $18.3 million arbitration award for the estate of a Dallas company in a commercial case involving the sale of a medical device company. His work has been recognized among the top verdicts in Texas and the nation, including a $39.4 million dollar jury verdict involving breach of partnership agreements, fiduciary duties and fraud in an alternative energy transaction. In a dispute over collegiate licensing agreements, Chris’ work led to a $5.3 million jury verdict in a case involving breach of an oral partnership agreement and fraud. Beyond the success of his business cases, Chris also uses his legal talents toward the aid of individuals. He offered pro bono services to the immigrants detained at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport after President Trump unleashed a travel ban executive order in late January. A tenacious counselor, Chris corralled attorneys from across DFW to offer legal services to affected detainees and contributed his own money to establish a nonprofit that continues to defend the United States Constitution and the rule of the law. That nonprofit is known as Lawyers for America, which he currently serves as president. At the state level, Chris has been a tireless voice against the passage of SB4, the new Texas law banning sanctuary cities. While he fights for legal and social causes, Chris is the go-to lawyer for many reporters seeking his legal expertise on the national, regional and local levels.

In addition, he helped found and fund Lawyers for America, a response team of pro bono attorneys. Chris serves as a member of the Board of Directors for Texas Trial Lawyers Association. D Magazine recently honored Chris with his selection to the 2017 Best Lawyers in Dallas list. Thomas Reuters has repeatedly recognized him as a Texas Super Lawyer and Rising Star.
