About Christopher Burks:

Mr. Burks brings to the Sanford Law Firm strong community leadership and behind the scenes know-how cultivated through clerkships with two Arkansas judges (Honorable Susan Hickey of the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas and the Honorable Rhonda Wood of the Arkansas State Circuit Court, Twentieth Judicial District), state and national political staffer positions and solo practice work prior to joining the firm.

Outside of the office, Mr. Burks, a lifelong resident of Arkansas and graduate of Little Rock Central High, has had op-ed pieces published in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the Arkansas Times, the Northwest Arkansas Times, Arkansas Business, and The Democratic Strategist. He is also a bi-monthly contributor to the Log Cabin Democrat and is an occasional commentator on KARN 102.9 FM and KARK News. Mr. Burks also recently served as an Arkansas delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Away from the hustle and bustle of political life and the law, Mr. Burks is happily married to his long-time sweetheart, fellow Arkansan and Rose Law Firm associate, Haley Heath Burks.
