About me


I am a native of Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and have focused my legal profession in the area of family law.  After law school, I began working with  law firms as an associate attorney focusing mainly on family law cases.  I have successfully negotiated and resolved numerous divorce and custody cases, and I have tried numerous contested divorce cases and contested custody cases across the State of Maryland, with my primary practice in Anne Arundel County.  Not only have I represented parties in divorce and custody actions, I have also been appointed by the Court as a best interests attorney for children.  Additionally, I volunteer some of my time at the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County as a facilitator to help mediate cases at Scheduling Conferences.


In recognition of my standing in the legal community, I have been designated as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers and Baltimore magazines for the past three years.


In regards to my education, I received my Juris Doctor degree from the University of Maryland School of Law in 2003.  During law school, I served as an Affiliate Editor of Margins Law Journal and served as a summer judicial clerk for the Honorable Judge Philip T. Caroom, in the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County.  I received my undergraduate degree Magna Cum Laude from the University of Maryland located in College Park in the year 2000.  I was a member of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.

  • Ronald M Naditch

    Christina Bayne is the real deal. She is smart as a whip, well prepared, a pleasure to work with or against, has the respect of the judges and represents her clients zealously. I fully expect Christina to be called " Your Honor" some day in the future. For now, however, one need look no further for a lawyer other than Christina. I have been practicing many decades and she recently whipped my butt in a highly complicated and fiercely contested matter, but did so with the highest degree of professionalism. Lawyers on the other side of cases from Christina had better bring their "A" game or they will have very disappointed clients. she represents the best of the Bar.

    Christina is an excellent attorney. I have had several cases against her and in each case she represented her client in an aggressive and highly competent manner. I would recommend her to any person searching for an attorney.
