Originally from Los Angeles, Christopher Kays moved to Charleston in 2007 when he reported to The Citadel for his knob year to study psychology. As a cadet, Christopher volunteered at the VA hospital and helped establish Leadership Day, The Citadel’s annual day of service.
After earning a B.A. in Psychology from The Citadel, Christopher joined AmeriCorps where his team worked with Charleston Miracle League to create HealthyPlay! Wiffleball League to help children from Title I schools learn about healthy eating and exercise habits.
During his time at the Charleston School of Law, Christopher enhanced his legal education by completing a study abroad program through The Hague in the Netherlands and membership in the International Law, Maritime Law and Business Law Societies.
Additionally, Christopher continued this focus on service while at Charleston School of Law, volunteering with My Sister’s House, People Against Rape, the Domestic Violence Clinic, Habitat for Humanity, and received his Darkness to Light training. Through his many service projects, Christopher has remained passionate about raising awareness in the community to the detrimental effects of abuse upon women and children.
Christopher’s experiences working with the veteran community and children are in line with the Brinkley Law Firm’s goals to keep family first, ensuring that the well-being of children is a high priority in all of our divorce cases, and serving those who serve our nation.
In his personal life, Christopher and his wife, Carrie, have made the Lowcountry their home where they enjoy taking advantage of the Lowcountry’s natural beauty while fishing, boating, or playing disc golf. He and his wife like to stay active by weightlifting, yoga, martial arts, and taking trips to the Upstate to hike.
