AFFORDABLE ADVOCACY WITH A PASSION FOR JUSTICE
Christine J. Lomas, Esquire grew up in Orlando and has watched this vibrant city grow in the process. She attended St. John Vianney and Bishop Moore Catholic Schools and has two degrees from the University of Central Florida. At the age of 45, Christine chose to finally pursue her dream and attend law school—right here at the Florida A&M University College of Law in downtown Orlando. She worked diligently to be near the top of her class, made the Dean’s List, and graduated Magna cum Laude. High points of Christine’s law school experience include the Guaridan ad Litem clinic, where she advocated for children who were dependents of the state, a Judicial Externship with the Honorable Mary S. Scriven of the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, and a study abroad program in Siena, Italy. Christine also participated in advocacy competitions and was a member of the Women’s Law Caucus.
Before law school, Christine enjoyed a 20-year career in the print publishing, advertising & marketing fields. Some may remember her as the former editor of the Central Florida Lifestyle magazine publications. In her last position, she managed a staff of up to 10 employees and oversaw budget expenditures of over $2 million. Christine also taught in the journalism department of her alma mater, UCF, and hopes to eventually teach part-time at FAMU’s College of Law.
Community Involvement. One of the high points of Christine’s life was as an elected delegate to the 2008 National Democratic Convention, where she saw history in the making as a major political party nominated the man who would go on to be the nation’s first African-American President. While attending the convention in Denver, she was thrilled to meet one of her personal heroes—former President Jimmy Carter. Christine is very involved with the local Democratic Party and currently serves on her homeowners association board of directors. She has served on WMFE’s Community Advisory Board and is a 2008 graduate of Seminole County’s Citizenship Academy.
Family. Christine knows the highs and lows of family life. She has been a young, struggling single mother, but for the last 17 years she has been happily married. She and her husband live in Oviedo with their daughter, and her adult son lives in nearby Sanford.
