Christian grew up in the Tampa Bay area, attending high school at King High.
In 1997, Christian went to the University of Florida. He graduated with a business degree and a classics minor. Christian attended the University of Arkansas School of Law on scholarship, where he learned to hunt, fish, and practice law.
Upon graduation,he returned to the Tampa Bay area with the single goal of becoming a trial attorney. He worked for the 6th Judicial Circuit for three years as a criminal public defender, trying over 40 cases to Jury trial in the time.
While working for the State, he met Nicole, a State Attorney, in a criminal trial. She was trying to throw his client in jail. (She did not succeed).
In 2009, he married Nicole, and they left the State to form their own law firm.
Christian believes that an experienced and aggressive trial lawyer helps clients get bigger and better settlements. This is true in divorce cases, car accidents, and criminal defense. And its because the “other side” always knows who is willing to litigate, and who is scared of a courtroom.
In the last few years, it has become clear to Christian that clients want more than just great results in the courtroom and the negotiating room.
Clients also want the best possible experience from the moment they hire an attorney until a case is finished. They want pro-active communication from their attorney, established game plans that are frequently reviewed and adjusted as necessary.
As a result, Christian works tirelessly to create a firm culture that puts the clients needs and wants above all else. His firm is the only firm in the bay area surveys current clients anonymously on a monthly basis to make sure they are getting the representation they need.
Christian lives in Pinellas County with his Wife, two beautiful little girls, and his Shih-tzu, Stewie.
