Chris Daughtry began helping injured clients as a law clerk for a personal injury firm before he even graduated from law school. Since then, he has helped his clients recover millions of dollars in damages. Over the years, Chris has seen how insurance companies use their unlimited resources, and how their lawyers manipulate the law, to deny people the justice they deserve. He has also learned that those tactics are no match for experience, knowledge, preparation, and good old-fashioned hard work. At Rutter Mills, Chris focuses his practice on the representation of injured workers at the state and federal levels.
Chris grew up in Chesapeake, Virginia, and graduated from Great Bridge High School. He returned to the Tidewater area after serving in the United States Army and graduated from Old Dominion University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies, (with a concentration on law and philosophy). He received his law degree from Liberty University School of Law, in Lynchburg, Virginia; and is licensed to practice law in Virginia and West Virginia. He lives in Virginia Beach with his wife, son, and two daughters.

“Being a lawyer is a privilege, not an entitlement. I am privileged to have a job helping people who have been injured, and protecting their interests is a responsibility that I take seriously.”
