Cristina originally planned to go to medical school, but her work at a law firm after college inspired her to instead pursue a career in law. Since that time, she successfully worked representing municipalities, towns, states, businesses, and individuals impacted by extensive environmental contamination including polluted drinking water supplies and oil spills.  Cristina recovered many significant settlements for her clients.


Cristina brings nearly two decades of litigation experience to Keating Brown having litigated a variety of complex litigation matters across the country.  Her previous experience provides insight on how to best represent her clients’ best interests through all phases of litigation.


Prior to entering the practice of law, Cristina grew up in New Orleans and graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences and a minor in Chemistry. When not practicing law, Cristina enjoys spending time with her family in Plano, Texas.
