Top Attorney - Orange County - 2015
Law Offices of Christopher Zander
4590 MacArthur Blvd., Suite 500
AS FAR BACK AS HE CAN REMEMBER, Christopher Zander has been interested in the law and wanted to be a part of the legal profession.
"My interest in law probably came from television - 'Law & Order' and the like," Zander said. "I have always been interested in the law, since I was a young kid, and always found it interesting while growing up."
Zander studied criminal justice in college, 'a natural transition to law,' then started his own firm right out of law school and right after passing the bar. He has handled cases from simple petty theft and DUI to homicide, giving each 'the highest quality service and utmost attention.'
Personalized customer service, 'an area where others attorneys lack,' is a focus for Zander. "Most attorneys ignore or simply don't understand that we are in a service industry. I work for my clients, not the other way around."
In line with this, Zander provides his personal cell phone number and email address to every client, and he'll text clients back 'at any time of day or night.' People, he said, "spend lot of money when hiring an attorney, so they want to be able to talk to you Ð not to a secretary or a paralegal but directly to the source."
"I also believe in spending hundreds of hours on continuing education each year, engaging the legal community, taking seminars and studying techniques, technologies and strategies other people are using." All of it, he said, has one goal: "to provide a better service to my clients."
Having the opportunity to work for himself, Zander said, is 'something I always wanted to do,' and having his own firm "is something that's special to me. I wake up in the morning and want to do my job, and to do it well."
