About Me

All of my life experiences prepared me to be a lawyer and help people.   I grew up in a family with an extremely high work ethic, which led to my own personal conviction to strive for excellence in all I do.   In high school, I volunteered at a nursing home, where the values I already knew from my family and faith, those of having a deep sense of care and compassion for people, was reinforced.    


In college, I continued volunteer work in mental health centers as I pursued my major in Psychology.  It was at the mental health centers that I gained an understanding and empathy for those who suffer from mental health and addictions issues, as well as the impact it has on the entire family. 


Also in college, I served as President of our Senior Class and Vice-President of our Junior Class, which helped develop confidence and leadership skills that make a difference in the type of attorney that I am today.  Serving as a Resident Assistant in the dorms also helped strengthen my leadership abilities and my abilities to be responsible for many things at once. 


Surprisingly, and having no idea of what the future would hold, the experiences that probably most prepared me for the courtroom was serving in lead roles in two college theatrical productions and one college musical production.  In addition, writing several articles that were published in the College Literary Arts Magazine allowed me to learn and utilize writing skills that would also help me to be the best attorney that I could be. 


After college, I worked in a community mental health center, first in an addictions recovery program, and then doing initial assessments of patients in the intake unit.  There, I learned the skills of questioning, listening, assessing, demonstrating empathy, and problem-solving, all helpful skills to have as a lawyer. Additionally, my core belief in the worth and value of every person was reinforced, as was my belief in showing compassion to hurting people. 


Although many of my experiences demonstrate the number one reason I do what I do, which is to HELP people, these experiences in and of themselves are not the only things that formed me into the lawyer that I am.  It is true that I have a compassionate heart, but I also have the intellect and the relational abilities that combine and complement one another.   I have been blessed with a work ethic wherein I strive for excellence in all I do.  Additionally, I have been blessed with the intellectual ability that helps me serve others, graduating magna cum laude and scoring in the top 4% in the country on the Law School Admission Test. 


Before going into private practice, I worked in a local small firm, and then for 8 years as the Attorney for the Elkhart County Department of Child Services.   The experiences and knowledge that I took from that job alone could fill a book!  Suffice it to say that the experience of working in the area of child abuse and neglect was yet another life experience that had a huge impact on me and the type of lawyer I am today.   


Now in private practice, I have been blessed to work with the most awesome “team” of attorneys, paralegals, and support staff, who share my belief in the value of people and in the belief that our purpose is to help those who need our help with their legal matters.  That is why we are here, and that is why we do what we do.  Together, we have strength and synergy to help people in a way that none of us could do alone.

    Christine is a fantastic attorney. I recommend her to my clients on a regular basis. Later, my clients tell me she did a great job and that her office was very reasonable on cost. What more could someone ask for from their attorney?!

    I have known Christine for many years and there is no one more knowledgeable on family law matters than Christine. When I was working my first CHINS case I consulted with her and got tremendous advice. If you are looking for an attorney well versed in family law matters you won't go wrong with Christine Majewski.
