I am no longer taking on new clients and will be shutting down my practice as I have been appointed to the court. 


I would like to thank all my clients who have put their trust in me over the past thirty years.

BC Lawyer Chris Churchill

Chris Churchill is an experienced criminal defence lawyer based in Nanaimo, British Columbia. 

Chris was called to the British Columbia Bar in early 1994. After three years as an associate lawyer with MacIsaac and Company in Nanaimo, Chris opened his own law practice in 1997 and he continues as a sole practitioner today.

Chris’s practice is, and has almost always been, in the area of criminal defence. Everyday in the course of his legal career Chris has vigorously protected and defended people’s rights. He is well respected in the legal community. He has good reputation with Crown Counsel and with the Courts.

It is very stressful to face a criminal investigation or charge. It is a wise decision to seek professional advice and assistance from someone who has deep experience with the criminal law and our legal system.
