This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
I have the fortunate perspective of having worked for and against Christa. For almost three years, I clerked for Christa while attending law school. From the very beginning, it was clear Christa became incredibly invested in her clients. She scrutinized every detail of the claim, ensured accuracy in all filings and correspondences, and followed any and all loose ends. Despite the hours working the file, she also managed to clearly and consistently communicate with her clients. Two years later, after graduating law school, I found myself on the defense side of a claim against Christa. Having a working relationship with counsel is incredibly important for Plaintiffs, and luckily I found that in Christa. She strongly advocates for her client's position, knowledgeably cites the law, and consistently ensures the case is progressing as quickly as possible. Christa is a strong, intelligent, friendly, and hard-working attorney. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any potential Plaintiff.
