Fairfax Native and Proud Son of Immigrant Parents
Chris Falcon was born in Falls Church, Virginia and is the proud son of two immigrant parents from Peru and Ecuador. He grew up speaking Spanish and learned to speak English as his second language in kindergarten with the Fairfax County Public School system. He graduated from W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax and became part of the first generation of his family to graduate from college when he received his bachelor’s degree from James Madison University. He's now raising his family with his wife Jackie and their three children in Annandale.
Chris has been a practicing attorney for the past 14 years and currently serves as Deputy Clerk, Civil Division Supervisor and Legal Counsel for the Arlington Circuit Court Clerk’s office. During his tenure, Chris implemented multiple e-solutions that have improved accessibility, efficiency, and the overall customer experience.
Equitable Justice and Court Modernization
When it comes to using technology to help constituents, the Fairfax Circuit Court lags behind other jurisdictions in Virginia. As the largest county in the state, Fairfax should be leading by example. Chris is running to modernize the court to improve responsiveness, efficiency, and the delivery of equitable justice.
