  • Profile

It’s rare to find an attorney who lives for the fight, who isn’t afraid of the long hours and all-nighters that come with trial preparation. Christopher Solis is one of those rare attorneys. Chris finds real joy in advocating for people who have been marginalized. No matter how difficult the case or tough the battle, Chris puts everything he has into helping his clients get the best result.

"Once you hire Keith & Lorfing, your case becomes personal to us. We will NOT be outworked, outlawyered, or out prepared."

Throughout his career, Chris has dedicated himself to the service of others. Prior to joining Keith & Lorfing, Chris spent 19 years in public service in various capacities. Attending Officer Candidate School in 2003, Chris initially served in the United States Marine Corps, where deployed as an artillery officer in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. After attending law school on the G.I. Bill and serving in the Marine Corps Reserve, Chris began working as a prosecutor in the State of New Mexico. During this time, Chris prosecuted cases ranging from D.U.I.s to property crimes and violent offenses. In 2018, Chris began working for the United States Attorney’s Office in the District of New Mexico focusing on narcotics and firearms offenses with occasional forays into white collar crimes. Christopher found that the best part of his job as a prosecutor was giving a voice to the voiceless. When he found that he could fulfill that role even more so as a defense attorney, he sought out the best defense firm in West Texas: Keith & Lorfing.
