Christopher J. Grimaldi
Christopher J. Grimaldi joined the firm as an associate in 2020. A 2015 graduate of Boston College and 2018 graduate of Boston University School of Law, Chris brings a wide range of clinical and professional experience to the position.
While interning for the United States District Court in his home state of New Jersey, Chris handled complex litigation matters related to both regulatory and constitutional disputes at the federal level. He further honed his litigation skills as a law clerk to the Office of Boston University's General Counsel, where he assisted the university's chief legal officer on a variety of higher education matters-from protecting the legal status of scholarly work, to ensuring university compliance with state and federal regulations.
During law school, Chris also served as a certified student attorney for the employment rights clinic at Greater Boston Legal Services. As a student clinician, Chris took charge of the fact gathering process with client interviews, thorough legal research, and concise legal memoranda, ultimately winning an administrative appeal for an aggrieved client. This passion for legal advocacy work inspired Chris to independently study special education law, for which he wrote a journal note on the substantive educational rights of disabled students.
Chris is skilled at advanced legal writing, research, and oral argument. As a former clerk with a large Massachusetts-based firm, Chris has experience balancing substantial caseloads and working to meet the needs of clients.
An avid fan of music, American history, and Boston College athletics, Chris resides with his wife in Brookline, MA.
