Originally from Michigan, Christine's tenacity and work ethic are unavoidable consequences of living in the midwest. After being called for jury duty shortly after her 18th birthday, Christine's passion for the law was also unavoidable. Christine's first job in a law office was as the mail and copy girl - making copies for the busy legal secretaries and delivering their mail. Next, she became a receptionist, secretary, paralegal eventually getting her undergraduate degree at Florida State University and law degree at Nova Southeastern University. While getting her degrees, Christine worked full-time in a law office and went to school at night.
Right after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Christine moved to New York City and then to Washington, DC before falling in love with the purple mountain majesties and relocating to Colorado. Moving back to Florida to be closer to her family, Christine settled in Pensacola in 2008 and now considers herself a local.
Christine has litigated many family law cases and has a high level of comfort in the courtroom, with a great ability to think on her feet while successfully arguing her clients' positions. Christine is experienced in negotiating and settling matters amicably so that families can move forward with their lives without the pain of protracted litigation.
Christine is a collaboratively-trained lawyer and a member of the West Florida Collaborative Law, Inc.
