Christopher Markos Has Been with Williams Cedar Since its Inception in 2017
HADDONFIELD, NEW JERSEY — Williams Cedar LLC has announced that Christopher Markos has been elevated to the position of Partner. Mr. Markos concentrates his practice in personal injury law, class action lawsuits, civil rights, mass tort, medical malpractice, environmental law, pharmaceutical claims, medical device injury cases, product liability and consumer protection.
Mr. Markos joined Williams Cedar as an Associate in 2017, the same year that the firm was founded. Before that, he was an Associate with Williams Cuker Berezofsky, a Philadelphia-based firm co-founded by Gerald J. Williams, Founding Partner, Williams Cedar LLC. Mr. Markos began his legal career as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Jose L. Fuentes of the New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division, and later became a Legal Fellow at the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, where he litigated cases involving free speech, privacy rights, due process and police misconduct.
Along with colleagues Beth Cole and Mr. Williams, Mr. Markos was honored by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania’s Prisoner Civil Rights Panel for service to hundreds of prisoners who were injured as a result of inhumane conditions in the Philadelphia prison system. From 2011 to 2014, the attorneys accepted judicial appointments to represent more than 900 former pro se plaintiffs. Five hundred of those cases resulted in individual settlements with the city and private medical providers.
In addition to his practice, Mr. Markos speaks to other attorneys, law students and members of the general public on a variety of topics, including civil rights litigation, oral advocacy and “know-your-rights” training.
Mr. Markos is a member of the Philadelphia Bar Association (PBA) and sits on its Advisory Committee for the Philadelphia Citizens Police Oversight Commission. He has organized programs on police misconduct litigation and gun safety and has helped develop policy positions for the PBA on racial justice, and reproductive and transgender rights.
In 2021 and 2022, Mr. Markos was named to the list of Pennsylvania’s “Rising Stars” in the practice areas of civil rights, environmental law, appellate law, class action/mass torts, employment law and personal injury law. Rising Stars is an exclusive list compiled by Super Lawyers in which no more than 2.5% of the state’s lawyers 40 years old and younger or those with 10 years of legal experience or less are eligible.
Mr. Markos earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers University and his Juris Doctor from Rutgers University School of Law – Camden.
