Christopher J. Fry, Esq.
Christopher J. Fry is a lifelong resident of Sacramento. He was born, grew up, attended K-12 school, college and law school in Sacramento. The majority of his professional experience comes from Sacramento and surrounding areas.
In 2005, Mr. Fry humbly began his career in the legal field as a file clerk at Thurbon & McHaney, LP, a mid-size litigation law firm. He answered phones and filed documents. He was intrigued by the legal profession, so much so, he impressed the principals and was quickly promoted to the paralegal position where he stayed for several years.
After that, Mr. Fry spent time at a leading consulting firm in California, MGT of America, but immediately realized that the legal field was where he wanted to be.
Over the next several years, he continued his mission to become a prominent California Attorney. Along the way, Mr. Fry worked with some of the State's most notable firms. He spent time working with California's, and possibly the Nation's, premier Constitutional law firm, Palmer Law Group. He also had the pleasure of working with one of Northern California's most successful and aggressive trial attorneys, John M. O'Brien.
Mr. Fry was a certified law student during law school and had more courtroom experience before becoming a lawyer than most 10 year attorneys. Immediately upon passing the bar, Mr. Fry co-founded California's prominent litigation firm Greene Fry, APLC. Mr. Fry was the lead on at least two (2) civil trials before the age of 30.
Mr. Fry's experience resulted in a well rounded legal professional capable of dealing with essentially any given legal situation.
In his career, Mr. Fry has been involved in complex litigation focused on areas such as; Constitutional Law, Business Litigation, Consumer Rights, State and Federal Government Liability (Tort, Contract and Constitutional) and Personal Injury. He has researched, developed and implemented legal arguments set forth in cases against City and County entities, the State of California, and even officers of the United States of America. He has worked on cases in numerous State and Federal Courts, the Third and Sixth District Court of Appeal, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal and even the United States Supreme Court. Some of the cases Mr. Fry has worked on can be found in published appellate opinions.
In addition to Mr. Fry's experience in complex litigation against governmental defendants, he has successfully litigated against America's largest financial institutions. In fact, he has led many cases representing homeowners for predatory lending, mortgage fraud and wrongful foreclosure. While these institutions employ only the most prestigious attorneys, he has briefed and prevailed on many demurrers (objections) and motions for summary judgment, including cases against Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and various others. He has seen tremendous success against the banks. As such, he is well respected and taken seriously by the attorneys the banks employ.
Mr. Fry graduated with his Juris Doctorate, sat for, and passed, the California State Bar Exam on his first attempt during an exam that posted all-time low passing rates.
With his passion for standing up for those without a voice, he has decided to continue to practice as a trial attorney and will continue to strive to help aggrieved citizens throughout California.
Mr. Fry has been published in a multitude of legal publications and routinely contributes to ongoing legal discussions.
In his free time, he enjoys golf, CrossFit, snowboarding, fine dining, water sports, traveling with his beautiful wife, wine tasting and spending time with his dogs. He takes every advantage of living in the beautiful and ever-so-entertaining State of California!

Justin D. McManus, Esq.
Justin D. McManus decided to pursue becoming an attorney during his undergraduate studies at Michigan State University. After living most of his youth life in Canada and Michigan, Mr. McManus was ready to make his way out to sunny Sacramento to attend law school at the University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law.
Mr. McManus’ notable achievements in law school included a Witkin award in Remedies. He served as the treasurer of the McGeorge Tennis Club and enjoyed going on trips to Tahoe along with the McGeorge Ski & Snowboarding Club. During law school and then later while waiting for his bar exam results, Mr. McManus served as a certified legal intern in two separate stints at the Solano County Public Defender and the Placer County Public Defender Offices.
After passing the California bar exam, Mr. McManus worked as an Associate Attorney with the Law Office of Bowman and Associates. In this position, Mr. McManus jumped right into a heavy caseload where he practiced general civil litigation and gained experience in a variety of practice areas.
Mr. McManus then went on to gain experience working as in-house counsel for a group of healthcare companies, while at the same time maintaining a small solo practice with a focus on business and corporate law, employment law, contracts and agreements, landlord-tenant and real estate law. Mr. McManus’ experience beginning in the criminal law context and later shifting to general civil law practice has shaped him to become a truly well-versed attorney and capable of handling many different legal matters.
Mr. McManus became an attorney to advocate for the rights of those in need. He diligently pursues the best interests of his clients in all respects. Mr. McManus is admitted to practice in all California State Courts and is a member of the American Bar Association (ABA) and the California Young Lawyers Association (CYLA).
In his free time, Mr. McManus enjoys being out in the warm California weather and playing tennis, golfing, snowboarding, hiking, and traveling to new locations.
