Christopher R. Cunningham
Attorney and Counselor at Law
Christopher joined the Tschetter Sulzer legal team as an Attorney and Counselor at Law after admission to the Colorado Bar in October of 2016. However, this Kansas City native has been with the firm as a legal intern since January of 2015. Prior to his internship with TS, Christopher interned for a District Court Judge where he acquired first hand experience with civil litigation cases. Following this initial internship, Chris interned at TS while also participating in internship positions with two other law firms where he expanded his familiarity of civil litigation as well as working on cases of attorney malpractice. These multiple internships provided him with first hand practical experience to work in firms with diverse areas of practice and give him the opportunity to identify the area of law that he wanted to practice. Based on these experiences Chris realized that he had a natural aptitude for landlord law. This fact, plus his appreciation of the team-like environment at Tschetter Sulzer led Christopher to pursue a career with the Firm.
Chris received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the University of Colorado Denver and his Juris Doctorate from Sturm College of Law at Denver University. While attending UCD as an undergraduate, Christopher managed a Pizza Hut where he learned valuable life lessons about business, communication, and customer service. After graduating from UCD and prior to attending law school, Chris took a three year hiatus from school and utilized his business degree to work in the private sector acquiring practical real life experiences. While in law school, Christopher competed on the DU Trial Team, joined the Sports & Entertainment Law Journal as a Staff Editor, and helped judge mock trials at local high schools before becoming a peer mentor to incoming law students.
Christopher believes he was always destined to become an attorney as he considers himself to be a problem solver and advocate; and it shows in his keen interest in litigation. One of his professional goals is to try (and win, of course) a case in front of the Supreme Court of Colorado. Chris is the middle child in his family with an older sister and younger brother and as such he learned to appreciate the skill of mediation. In his free time, Christopher enjoys writing sci-fi short stories, harkening back to his first job where he worked at Mile High Comics when he was fourteen years old.
