Summary

Former Insurance Defense Lawyer now devoted to representing individuals, families and small businesses throughout Alabama and Mississippi who have been injured, harmed or damaged in any way.

For over 16 years, Chris Estes defended the insurance industry and big corporations and knows first-hand how they deny claims when individuals and their families have been injured, damaged and even wrongfully killed. Chris Estes founded the Estes Law Firm with one simple and straightforward purpose – to provide individuals and their families with the same representation and resources as the corporations and insurance companies demand from the big defense law firms they retain.

Chris Estes also serves as a Temporary Judge (on a part time basis when needed by the Court) for the Probate Court of Mobile County, and presided on over 100 cases in Mobile County as a Judge in 2018.

Chris Estes and his team at The Estes Law Firm are dedicated to helping real people and their families with cases involving wrongful death, serious personal injury, dangerous drugs, defective medical devices, car and big truck accidents, nursing home negligence, medical malpractice and class actions.

If you have suffered a personal injury, damages or the death of a loved one, let Chris and his team at Estes Law Firm go to work for you. We offer a free initial consultation and work on a contingency fee basis – which means you owe us nothing unless we can collect for you.

Bar Requirement: No representation is made that the quality of legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
