Christopher J. Warmbold, Associate

Attorney Christopher J. Warmbold has dedicated his legal career to representing those who are often marginalized, overlooked, and underrepresented. He has a successful track record of advocating on behalf of his injured clients that was earned by standing up to insurance companies, corporations, and municipalities who fail or refuse to uphold their obligation to provide full compensation for the harms caused by the negligence of others. Chris concentrates his practice in matters involving personal injuries, wrongful death, general civil litigation, and appellate advocacy.

 Coming from a family of blue-collar workers taught me the importance of hard work and standing up for your neighbor – lessons I have not forgotten. All my clients can count on having a zealous advocate in their corner, fighting to level the playing field for them in the pursuit of justice.

Chris is a graduate of Northern Illinois University where he received his bachelor’s degree in economics cum laude and he later returned to NIU and obtained his law degree in 2013. That same year he was licensed to practice in the State of Illinois.

Prior to joining Meyers & Flowers, Chris worked for the Kendall County Public Defender’s Office where he represented the accused and fought against the power and influence of the State’s Attorney’s Office. As a criminal defense attorney, Chris spent countless hours in the courtroom providing high quality representation to his clients charged with serious offenses while simultaneously fighting to limit their exposure to collateral consequences. After a successful career as a defense attorney, Chris joined a well-respected law firm in Aurora, Illinois where he gained invaluable experience as a plaintiff’s trial lawyer. He then joined Meyers & Flowers in 2022.

Christopher Warmblood

Chris is an experienced litigator having successfully tried both criminal and civil cases to verdict. A notable victory came in September of 2021, when Chris and a fellow attorney secured a $7.7 million verdict for the family of a 33-year-old woman who died because her treating physician failed to recognize, prevent, and treat a thiamine deficiency that developed following bariatric surgery.  The verdict stands as one of the largest ever awarded in Winnebago County history. Most recently, Chris and Meyers & Flowers’ founding partner Ted Meyers, secured a $600,000 total recovery for a client in a highly contested retaliatory discharge case. The recovery, which included attorney’s fees and the rare award of punitive damages, is believed to be one of the highest retaliatory discharge jury verdicts awarded in Kane County history.

In addition to being a successful trial lawyer, Chris has a proven track record challenging adverse outcomes and safeguarding circuit court victories in the 2nd and 3rd District Appellate Courts and the Illinois Supreme Court. In 2022, Chris had the distinct privilege to argue a case before the Illinois Supreme Court where he successfully advocated for judicial recognition of critical safeguards for disabled wards concerning their right to marry (In re Estate of McDonald, 2022 IL 126956). The breadth of Chris’ experience as a legal writer, trial lawyer and appellate advocate has earned him recognition from his peers in the legal community, including recognition as a Super Lawyers “Rising Star”. The Rising Stars list recognizes no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state, either under the age of 40 or in practice for 10 years or less.

Chris is a co-chair of the Kane County Bar Association’s Civil Practice Committee and is also a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, and Kendall County Bar Association where he formerly served as President.

Chris was raised in McHenry County and currently resides in suburban DuPage County with his wife and two sons. When not devoting his time and efforts to his clients, Chris serves as a mentor to NIU law students helping guide them through the intricacies of law school, legal internships, the bar exam, and life as a practicing lawyer.
