Christopher Rahilly earned his undergraduate degree in Philosophy with a concentration in Medical Ethics from the University of Wisconsin in 1997. Prior to attending law school, he lived in Edenton, North Carolina, and worked as a real estate broker and licensed property and casualty insurance adjuster.
In April of 2010, he returned to Edenton to continue his passion for representing clients in Northeastern North Carolina. He remains committed to the local area and has enjoyed working with numerous community and non-profit organizations throughout Eastern North Carolina. By joining The Twiford Law Firm, which has been continuously serving the citizens of Northeastern North Carolina since 1952, he is honored to provide his clients with the high level of service Northeastern North Carolina has come to expect from The Twiford Law Firm.
His practice focuses on three main areas of the law: Family/Domestic, Civil Litigation, and Criminal Defense. His passion is representing clients in court. Domestic Law and Criminal Law is an ever changing arena. Child Custody, Equitable Distribution, Alimony, Child Support, Adoption, and Civil Litigation all have the potential to dramatically affect your life and that of your loved ones. Before discussing divorce with your spouse or as soon as you find yourself in the criminal justice system, you should consult an attorney. An effective, experienced, and aggressive attorney can mean the difference between a positive or negative outcome in a case.
As an attorney, Christopher often finds himself meeting people during what is one of the most difficult times in their lives. He believes that each of his clients deserves not only zealous advocacy on their behalf but also accessibility and communication. Whether you are facing a serious criminal charge, dealing with a stressful divorce, or navigating the often confusing waters of civil litigation, he will regularly and consistently communicate with you about your case. He recognizes that communication is the key to a positive attorney-client relationship. His philosophy is "client first."
