  • Mark William Gemma

    Christine and I first met several years ago as opposing counsel. Since that time Christine and I have worked together on cases. I have always been impressed with Christine. She is detailed, knows every important fact regarding her client's and the cases she is working on. Perhaps what impresses me most is that Christine is very compassionate when it comes to her clients and yet she can be very aggressive in fighting for them. I endorse her without hesitation.
