Attorney Christopher "Chris" Tamms has been practicing in the area of family law since opening his practice in 2009. Prior to this time he was an attorney at the Court of Claims of Ohio.  Chris was born in Summit, New Jersey but grew up in Dublin, Ohio where he attended Dublin Coffman High School and graduated in 2001.  He attended Miami University in Oxford, Ohio as an undergraduate where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Economics.  At Miami, Chris became a member of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity for which he served as treasurer. 

 

A lifelong Buckeye, Chris attended law school at The Ohio State University, Moritz College of Law. During law school, Chris served as a Managing Editor to the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution and was actively involved in the school’s moot court program.  During his second year he was elected to the Moot Court Governing Board and went on to represent Ohio State in the National Civil Rights Competition during his third year.  He continues to be involved in the moot court program having served as a coach to the National Civil Rights Team in years past and is often asked to serve as a judge during intra-school Herman and Appellate Advocacy Competitions. 

 

Attorney Tamms' legal practice is devoted entirely to the law affecting families including divorces, dissolutions, child custody disputes, support issues (child support and spousal support), property division, debt allocation, retirement account division, prenuptial agreements as well as post-decree matters and appellate issues related to family law.  Attorney Tamms' singular focus on family law issues allows him to stay up to date with new developments that affect his clients.  

 

When not practicing law, Chris enjoys playing golf and is a "committed" strategy gamer.  He is also an avid musician and sometimes “moonlights” as a piano teacher.
