Cris attended Tulane University where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and English. Cris then attended the University of Texas Law School, where he obtained his law degree. Cris obtained a post graduate fellowship focusing on the impact of special interest money in the Texas political system. Cris ultimately decoded and successfully proved how former House Majority Leader Tom Delay used illegal money in the 2002 Texas state elections. The Houston Chronicle would later call Cris a “crusading, young, clean-government lawyer.”
Cris gained a wealth of experience working alongside one of the top trial lawyers in the country, Rusty Hardin, at Rusty Hardin & Associates. After five years of being in the courtroom with Mr. Hardin, Cris started his own firm. Eventually former Houston City Attorney and father to Cris, David Feldman, joined the firm to create Feldman & Feldman, PC.
Cris has a distinguished legal career helping both individuals and businesses. Some of his past successes include helping the family of a child molestation victim seek justice from the powerful church where the attacker worked, successfully representing oyster fishermen battling to save Galveston Bay for the people of Texas from a corrupt backroom deal seeking to monopolize the industry and representing a victim of official oppression by a law enforcement officer. Cris obtained substantial verdicts in business litigation matters, including obtaining the highest business verdict in the state against a major title insurance company in 2010 and successfully trying the first case in Texas under a new rule that flipped litigation costs against a major insurance company.
At his core, Cris knows the fundamental right to a fair civil or criminal trial must be preserved, regardless of money or power. He knows that means honoring the critical role twelve unbiased citizens can have in righting wrongs, regardless of who the client may be, or their station in life. Cris is licensed to practice before all Texas Courts, United States District Courts for the Southern, Western, Northern, and Eastern Districts of Texas, the Fifth Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
