Meet Christopher S. Norton
- Juris Doctor, Brigham Young University, December 2002
- Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, Brigham Young University, April 1999
Mr. Norton earned his undergraduate and law degrees from Brigham Young University, and he remains a loyal Cougar fan. Having served a two-year mission in Argentina, he learned the Spanish language and developed a love for wood-fired grilling.
As a father of five, he recognizes the importance of managing a high-volume caseload, being readily available to his clients, and being a basketball dad. Thus, he remains at the forefront of new technology and applications that allow the firm’s case management system to be accessible remotely—from laptops, phones, and tablets—so that he can give a client an after-hours case status while cheering from the stands at his kid’s basketball game.
Mr. Norton serves on the board of directors of the Arizona Self-Insured Association and assists on the board’s legislative committee. He has been influential in shaping workers’ compensation legislation in Arizona, including full and final settlement legislation. He is licensed to practice in Texas and Arizona and is a Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation by the State Board of Legal Specialization in Arizona. He also travels the country giving seminars to clients and speaking at industry conferences. Mr. Norton has been recognized by his peers as a Southwest Super Lawyer Rising Star from 2013 to 2015 and a Super Lawyer from 2021 to 2023.
