Christopher McCormick was admitted to the Connecticut Bar on December 12, 1985 and the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut on February 10, 1986. Chris is one of two partners of Steier & McCormick, LLC a four-attorney firm with offices in West Hartford and Avon Connecticut. Chris is an attorney in good standing in Connecticut and the current emphasis of his practice is bankruptcy, foreclosure defense and workouts and real estate law.
During the first ten years the primary focus of his law practice was the representation of lenders for residential foreclosures, workouts, REO sales and bankruptcy. Chris shifted the primary emphasis of his practice in 1997 to real estate law and the representation of debtors focusing on consumer and small business bankruptcy.
Chris received his undergraduate degree Cum Laude from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina and his J.D. Degree from the University of Connecticut School of Law in Hartford, Connecticut. While attending law school, Chris was a law clerk for the Division of Special Revenue for the State of Connecticut and drafted regulations for the lottery and other legalized gambling operations in the State of Connecticut. He also worked as a law clerk for the law firm of Keith & Aparo located in Hartford, Connecticut that specialized in real estate law.
In 1985, Chris joined the law firm of Gross, Hyde & Williams, P.C. in Hartford, Connecticut as an associate. During his tenure at this firm, Chris worked in a variety of areas of law including personal injury and construction litigation, real estate, corporate and employment law and estate planning.
In 1986, Chris joined the firm of Reiner & Reiner as an associate and his practice initially focused on real estate, personal injury and collection law. When the real estate market soured in the late 1980s the main emphasis of his practice shifted to residential foreclosures and he started the residential foreclosure department at that firm.
In 1990, Chris left Reiner & Reiner to join the firm to join the firm of Mayo, Gilligan & Zito, LLC and to continue with his practice in the areas of foreclosure and workouts, collections, real estate and creditor’s rights in bankruptcy. While at Mayo Gilligan & Zito Chris also started to receive fiduciary appointments from the West Hartford Probate Court.
In May 1995 Chris joined with his current partner, Mark S. Steier, to form the law firm of Steier, Weaver & McCormick, which became Steier & McCormick, LLC in January 2003. Over the next two years Chris changed his creditors’ rights foreclosure practice by choice to a practice focused on representing debtors in bankruptcy and foreclosure defense cases.
