My practice is devoted to civil litigation with a focus on personal injury claims involving motor vehicle accidents, dog bites, slip & falls, medical malpractice, worksite safety and products liability.
I have been a licensed attorney for over 13 years and am experienced with all aspects of litigation, from initial investigations and formal discovery to trial and appeals. Having represented both plaintiffs and defendants, I have unique insight into how insurance companies respond to claims and the tactics they use in their defense.
I am admitted to practice in the State of Washington and before the U.S. District Court - Western District of Washington and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
I grew up in the Puget Sound area and now reside in Tacoma with my husband. I have three cats and two dogs, plus many, many fish. My hobbies include digital photography, writing and home remodeling - much to my husband's dismay. He and I also participate in fundraising for Multiple Sclerosis research and remain hopeful that there will soon be a cure for this terrible disease.
Hourly ($200-250/hour), contingent (30-40%), Free consultation (60 minutes)

Christi is an impressive attorney with strong litigation skills and experience. I am impressed with her years of expertise in the area. She and i are working on a project together and immediately after explaining the complex matters involved, she identified the issues and was able to competently analyze and discuss them with me. She's a great addition to our team!
