Christina has always been passionate about helping people – specifically using the law to help people understand and overcome the legal challenges they face.

Prior to joining the Shine Lawyers team, she practised primarily in commercial disputes, class actions/representative proceedings and human rights litigation. This has helped her to garner experience in a range of dispute work, including claims under the Australian Consumer Law, franchising disputes, contract and tort claims as well as racial discrimination and sex discrimination matters. She has represented a diverse range of clients, from small to medium size businesses to individuals, including clients from non-English speaking backgrounds and Indigenous Australians.

Christina studied a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Laws (Honours I) degree from the University of Wollongong where she graduated in 2017. She then completed her Diploma of Legal Practice at the College of Law (NSW) before being admitted to the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2017.

As a litigator and class actions lawyer, Christina enjoys learning about her clients and their businesses. Each matter presents her with a new set of challenges, and she finds providing advice and solutions for her clients incredibly rewarding. She particularly enjoys working on class actions, as this area of law provides an avenue for individuals who have been wronged to seek justice from large and often powerful entities, in circumstances where these individuals may not have otherwise had the will or financial backing to do so.

"As a class actions lawyer, I place great emphasis on stakeholder management; I pride myself on developing strong relationships and being client focused."
