Prior to opening her own firm, Christina was an employment litigator at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP where she represented public and private clients in both single-plaintiff and multi-plaintiff/multi-jurisdiction class actions. She also led high-risk employment audits and investigations for large, institutional clients as well as smaller, start-up clients. Christina previously practiced labor and employment law at Baker McKenzie LLP and Littler Mendelson, PC. Her time with these highly-regarded international law firms, representing clients large and small, provided Christina with unparalleled training and experience navigating the often-complex realm of California and federal employment laws. These collective experiences afforded Christina the opportunity, and courage, to form and lead her first successful business in private real estate investments with projects throughout the United States, where she is tasked with investment strategy, corporate compliance, litigation management and financial oversight.
With the opening of her own law practice, Christina now enjoys truly partnering with her clients to solve problems that, quite literally, keep them up at night.
