Chris Tinsley

Staff Attorney

Studying law at University of Illinois College of Law and working for three public defender’s offices, Chris came to LCLC after witnessing the daily cruelty of the court system and the misery it perpetuates. Chris draws his inspiration to fight from the Civil Rights Movement and the work it pushed forward. He hopes to make a difference in the lives of his clients, so that they can look back and say that their involvement with the criminal justice system did not define their futures. Chris finds his joy and recharges when hearing about the successes of our clients and how they were able to escape the system.
