Associate Attorney

Chris Mathena is an associate at Fulgencio Law. His work as a plaintiff’s attorney benefits from a broad swath of knowledge and experience gained from a diverse legal and business background. Chris passionately pursues justice for those victimized by greedy corporations and the negligence of others.

A native of Houston, Texas, Chris graduated from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin, one of the top 20 business schools in the United States. In 2009, he earned his law degree from South Texas College of Law Houston, one of few law schools in the United States consistently ranked in the top 10 for trial advocacy.

During law school, Chris was a member of the nationally-ranked moot court and mock trial competition teams, travelling to competitions across the country. He was also an associate editor of the Corporate Counsel Review and a graduate of the Frank Evans Center for Conflict Resolution. Outside of class, he interned with the Honorable Sharolyn Wood of the 127th Civil District Court in Houston, Texas, and clerked for the law firm of Ostendorf Tate Barnett.

Since moving to Tampa in 2010, Chris has worked in commercial real estate development, served as general counsel for a large energy equipment manufacturer, and practiced in various areas of civil litigation. Since 2017, he has focused solely on representing clients in matters of personal injury and consumer law.

Chris is a member of the Florida Justice Association, the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division, the Hillsborough County Bar Association, and the Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association.
