Chris Perri Law

As the child of a doctor and nurse, he learned early on the value of helping others, a value he now tries to instill in his son.

Just like his parents to their patients, Chris strives to be a caring, knowledgeable, hardworking, and successful advocate for his clients, regardless of the charges they may face.

For many years, he served as a founding and supervising attorney for UT Law’s pro bono Texas Expunction Project.

You can read some of his publications listed further below. He’s guest-appeared on several podcasts and co-hosted a weekly web series called The Budding Report, which explores all things cannabis. His priority on the show was to ensure that everyone knows their rights when it comes to the ever-changing drug laws.
