About Me

Attorney Christine Cruse, a New York native, graduated from Rutger's University in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in Psychology. She attended Mercer University's Walter F. George School Of Law, graduating in 1998.


After graduating from law school, Christine worked as a recruiter for the law school before joining the Houston County District Attorney's office. While there, she handled all felony property crimes and co-chaired several major felony cases during her first year. She then left to serve as inhouse counsel for Georgia Secretary of State Cathy Cox/Licensing Department where she practiced administrative law and assisted various boards in the creation of new rules and regulations.


Christine returned to the Houston County D.A.'s office a year later to specialize in the prosecution of all felony physical and sexual abuse crimes commited against children. She tried a myriad of cases from murders to serious aggravated child molestations and was successful in obtaining high sentences for violent sex offenders following their convictions. She also served as the head of Houston County's Child Fatality Committee and the Child Abuse Multi-disciplinary team for nearly four years.


Proudly on October 3, 2011, Christine M. Cruse launched The Law Office of Christine M. Cruse, where she specializes in Family Law, Military Family Law Issues and Criminal Defense.   Christine has had over 8 years of experience in private practice first with the Gomez Law Group and then with the Rockefeller Law Center (since the firm's inception in 2005) before launching her own practice.   In addition, she specializes in personal injury matters and currently has the honor and privilege of representing (as co-counsel) one of the victims of the awful "Perry Hospital Mammogram Scandal" which is currently pending.  Furthermore, Christine is a State-Certified Family Law and General Civil Mediator and is available to mediate your case.
