Christine concentrates her practice on transportation law and regulatory compliance for motor carriers and transportation companies. She works closely with her clients to find solutions to legal problems before they spiral out of control and is particularly adept at considering the big picture from the client’s point of view, guiding her clients through the adversary process and thinking beyond the application of legal principles and trial advocacy in reaching the right result. She also frequently appears before regulatory agencies for her clients in the transportation and energy industries, such as the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and the Philadelphia Parking Authority.
Christine also handles a wide range of commercial litigation matters, including matters in the insurance, real estate and flood determination industries. She defends lenders and flood zone determination companies in matters involving claims brought in connection with the 1973 Flood Disaster Protection Act and the 1994 National Flood Insurance Reform Act. Additionally, Christine represents title insurance companies, their agents and insureds in various disputes.
