With 12+ years of employment law experience, Christine is adept at guiding businesses through the catalog of laws governing employees. Her practice involves counseling and training on employment issues with the goal of litigation avoidance, policy and contract development, investigating and defending businesses against charges, demand letters and lawsuits, and negotiating smart settlements to cut off expensive legal blackholes.
Top areas of her practice include Title VII discrimination, harassment and retaliation laws, EEOC charges, the Americans with Disabilities Act, FLSA Wage & Hour, Restrictive Covenant disputes, OSHA and DOL matters, among others.
Additionally, Christine has developed a niche practice in Title III ADA Accessibility law, representing clients facing public accessibility lawsuits (including website accessibility) and those in need of compliance counseling on Title III’s technical design standards.
Along with her legal experience, Christine presents on a variety of topics affecting businesses. She is also a published author, having written for the Alabama Law Review, The Fulton County Daily Report, The Crimson White Newspaper, Trucker’s News Magazine, Overdrive Magazine, and eTrucker.com.
Outside of work, Christine enjoys the calm of yoga, meditation, and the great outdoors. Some of her favorite activities include hiking to waterfalls, beaching, and soaking in mineral springs. She also loves spoiling her dog Emma Charles with home-cooked meals and daily photoshoots.
Christine has a creative side, indulging in various artistic mediums and occasionally painting or drawing works decent enough to give to friends and family members. On the social front, you will find her checking out food scenes, shanking golf balls, and traveling.
Christine is a big believer in giving back to her community and has volunteered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Birmingham, Triumph Services, and The Women’s Fund Voices Against Violence Initiative.
