Chris Hicks is a native of Vero Beach. He attended Vero Beach High School and played in the Fighting Indian Band. After attending Stetson University for both college and law school he decided to return to his hometown to continue his family tradition of helping his community. A former state attorney, and corporate counsel for a large development company decided he could better serve the community in private practice in 2005. Since that time he has represented clients in a variety of fields including, child welfare, family, estate planning, adoption, and business ventures. Chris has provided legal representation to those so often forgotten in child welfare case; the children and their relatives. Having previously worked for DCF and a local child care organization, Chris has a breadth of experience and knowledge rarely found locally. He strives to address the true issues at stake rather than taking a 'win at all costs' stance. He believes in client-centered representation that only a local firm can provide.
