Christopher K. Robertson is a Member in the Banking and Financial Services industry groups, focusing primarily on litigation, professional liability, errors and omissions, and commercial litigation. He practices out of the Firm’s office in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
Chris is a consummate professional who always has eyes trained on the big picture for his clients. With nearly three decades of experience, Chris handles matters involving personal injury, errors and omissions, professional negligence, lender liability, and virtually any kind of commercial litigation.
Chris has also defended many cases alleging predatory lending, inflated home appraisals, and loan processing errors. He has also defended numerous cases filed by consumers under the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Truth in Lending Act, including such actions instituted by the Office of the West Virginia Attorney General. He has also represented automobile dealers and manufacturers against claims of fraud, breach of consumer warranties, and violation of state lemon laws, as well as builders and manufacturers of housing against claims about alleged defects in home construction. Although his practice has historically been on the defense side, Chris also once successfully represented — and obtained a seven-figure result for — a Fortune 100 company in a coverage dispute with its insurer concerning mold that had impacted multiple floors of the client's building.
Chris' track record is long, impressive, and speaks for itself. He has a vast amount of experience and has handled virtually all types of civil litigation. He is also a trained mediator and uses his skills, his practical experience, and his temperament to help litigants resolve their disputes.
Chris is a member of the Defense Research Institute (DRI) and Defense Trial Counsel of West Virginia. He joined the Firm in 1992 after earning his law degree from Washington and Lee University School of Law. Outside of the office, Chris enjoys music, traveling, and rooting for the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Baltimore Ravens.
