Christopher Shelburn grew up in the picturesque, small town of Aiken, South Carolina where he attended Aiken High School. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Biology, Chris moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. There he pursued his love of the outdoors, fly fishing, and snowboarding while working many different jobs.

Chris returned to east coast in 2005 to attend the University Of South Carolina School Of Law. He explored various interests including environmental law, intellectual property, and real estate before deciding his future lay in trial practice. After graduation, Chris was drawn back to North Carolina and later opened the Law Offices of Christopher W. Shelburn in 2009.
