"The justice system can be intimidating, frustrating, even traumatizing.
My goal is to see my clients walk away from their experience with my firm not only satisfied with the outcome of their case, but also feeling empowered to move forward with their lives.”

Christine was born in Gainesville, Florida and literally grew up inside the courthouse where her step-father is a now a Senior Judge and her mother recently retired after 48 years of service as the Chief Deputy Clerk of Court for the 8th Circuit.

In 2007 she began her career as a state prosecutor in the 8th Judicial Circuit where she spent three years prosecuting and trying DUI and domestic violence cases in court.
