My name is Chris Vogt and I am an Attorney at the Malek Law Firm LLC. I was born in South Carolina, but I was raised and grew up in Fairlawn, Ohio. From a young age, my parents instilled in me the values of integrity and diligence. After high school, I attended the University of Akron where I studied political science and business administration.
Upon earning my bachelor’s degree, I made the decision to attend the University of Akron School of Law. While attending Law School, I was a member of Akron Law’s Trial Team, and I had the privilege of participating as an advocate in multiple national trial competitions. My fondest competition memory was getting the chance to compete in Santa Monica, California during the National Civil Trial Competition in 2019. The city was beautiful, and I will never forget competing alongside teammates who I now consider my friends and peers.
I chose to begin my career as an attorney working at the Malek Law Firm because of the incredible reputation that the firm possesses both in the legal world and the local community. With Linda Malek’s leadership and guidance, I am confident that I will continue to grow and flourish as a passionate advocate for our clients.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife, Megan and our cat, Pippin. I consider myself a devoted Cleveland sports fan, and enjoy attending sporting events. On weekends, I enjoy taking spontaneous trips up to Cleveland and to Cuyahoga Valley with my wife and friends to try new restaurants and bars. So far, my favorite restaurant pick would have to be Rood Food + Pie in Lakewood.
