About me

Chrisna wrote the brief and conducted oral argument at  the Georgia Court of Appeals in Cotten v. Phillips 280 Ga. App. 280 (2006), a case of first impression on the interpretation of the then new O.C.G.A. section 24-9-67.1 (now 24-7-702) as it pertains to medical expert testimony.  She was successful in the appeal and the Court agreed with her interpretation of the statute.  This victory defeated the attempts (by insurance companies and healthcare providers) to limit Plaintiffs' ability to engage medical experts on their behalf.


 


Chrisna was born and raised in Albany, GA.  She was an intensive case unit  RN  for 13 years before becoming an attorney.  She is married, enjoys being an "empty nester," and has  grandchildren.  She enjoys tending to her 21 rose bushes, gardening, travelling in the U.S. and abroad, and scuba diving.
