Chris Aubert was born in New York City and moved to New Orleans in 1975 to attend Tulane University, from where he graduated in 1979 with a BA in Philosophy. For six years during and after college, he worked in many capacities in the sports field, including for the NBA’s New Orleans Jazz, as a sportswriter for the New Orleans Times Picayune newspaper, and as a sportscaster and producer at the 50,000 watt clear channel WWL Radio, where he did a nationwide call-in sports talk show.
Chris got his law degree from Tulane in 1984, and founded The Aubert Law Firm in 1992, after leaving the McGlinchey Stafford firm. For almost 30 years as a lawyer, Chris has combined his New York “street smarts” with down-home Southern logic and practicality to cut through the often confusing and costly maze of civil litigation. He concentrates his practice in products liability, general casualty, and business and commercial litigation, as well as business consulting and “turn-arounds.” He is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell (a distinction held by less than 14% of all U.S. attorneys), is licensed in all state and federal courts in Louisiana and Texas, and has tried cases to verdict in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, and Florida.
On a personal level, Chris is a board member of the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame; a board member of Fullness of Truth Catholic Evangelistic Ministries; a member of Legatus, an international organization of practicing Catholic CEOs, Presidents, Managing Partners, and Business Owners; a fourth degree Sir Knight and three-time Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus; and a member of many other charitable and religious boards and groups. He is also a regular speaker around the country on faith and business issues, and has been featured in numerous media outlets including the Los Angeles Times, The Coming Home Network, Catholic Answers, The Catholic Channel, Closer Walk Ministries Television, Relevant Radio, Envoy Magazine, and Legatus Magazine.
Chris and his wife Rhonda lost their home in Covington to Hurricane Katrina, and now live in Southlake, Texas, with their six children: Christine, Kyle, Roch, Paul, Vance, and Mark.
